According to a tweet by PeckShield, about 4,600 ETH digital coins were stolen, half of which were immediately sent to TornadoCash, a platform that allows you to "launder" stolen money.
Crypto.com's CEO stated suspicious activity on their website, 4so the team started investigating the situation. During the investigation, they suspended withdrawals and asked users to log in to their accounts and reset their two-factor authentication settings. Later, the company reported an ongoing investigation, underlining that no user funds had been stolen.
