Cryptocurrency exchange Binance was robbed of 570 million Hacker withdrew

Cryptocurrency exchange Binance has undergone another hacker attack. The attackers managed to withdraw BNB tokens worth about $570 million.

Cryptocurrency exchange Binance was robbed of $570 million.  Hacker withdrew BNB tokens

Somewhat earlier it was reported that the attack allowed the hackers to steal about $110 million, but now it turned out that everything is much worse. At the same time, the specialists of the exchange managed to freeze part of the funds, but we are talking about only 7 million dollars, which is clearly insignificant against the background of 570 million.

The exchange revealed that a cross-chain bridge connected to its BNB chain was attacked, allowing hackers to move BNB tokens off the network. Now the network has been restored, and the clients’ funds, according to Binance, are safe.

The fact of the theft of funds contributed to a sharp drop in the BNB rate by almost 5%, but after a few hours, almost half of the fall was redeemed.

It is noted that for several years of his activity, the hacker, using the NetWalker encryption virus, earned about $ 27 million. A search of Vashon-Desjardins revealed a crypto wallet containing 719 bitcoins, which was about $22 million at the time of the cybercriminal’s arrest in January 2022.

According to investigators, the 34-year-old cybercriminal acted in collusion with other hackers. Vashon-Desjardins himself played the role of an attacker: he infected the corporate networks of various companies with a virus and then demanded a ransom from them. Organizations from the USA, Canada and a number of European countries suffered from the activities of the criminal.

It is noted that, in addition to the prison term, the court also imposed a fine on Vashon-Desjardins in the amount of $ 21 million. Also, the criminal will have to pay compensation to the companies affected by his actions. The amount of damages has not yet been established.

At least this is true for Linux, since it was in this OS that the author tested the Ryzen 9 7950X and Ryzen 5 7600X. It turned out that when working out of the box, the CPUs show better performance than when loading a special version of Linux with a deactivated patch from the Specter V2 vulnerability.

Of course, such results do not appear everywhere, and during normal work they are unlikely to be critical. In particular, in total, according to the results of 190 tests, the difference was only 3%.
