Fraudsters stole $9.7 million from Sky Mavis co-founder

Sky Mavis co-founder Jeffrey Zirlin reported that two personal wallets were hacked. The attackers managed to withdraw 3,248 ETH worth about $9.7 million.

“The attack is limited to my own accounts and has nothing to do with the validation or operation of the Ronin network. “In addition, the key leak has nothing to do with Sky Mavis’ operations,” Zirlin said.

According to PeckShield, hackers withdrew funds from the Ronin bridge and have already transferred them to the Tornado Cash cryptomixer.

Another Sky Mavis co-founder Alexander Leonard Larsen also statedthat there is no problem with Ronin, and the wallet was compromised in a way that “happens on every blockchain.”

“The bridge itself has the highest level of security, has undergone many inspections and is paused when too many funds are withdrawn,” he added.

In March 2022, hackers from the Lazarus Group used an exploit in the Ronin code and withdrew crypto assets with a total value of approximately $625 million.

A year after the incident, Sky Mavis announced plans to increase decentralization and enter into cooperation with other studios to develop games based on the network.
