HTX and HECO Chain Undergo Cyberattack

Dear HTX Users,

We have detected a cyberattack targeting HTX and the HECO chain. In response, we have promptly initiated a comprehensive investigation. Our technical team is currently identifying the source of the attack and has implemented urgent measures to protect user assets. As a precautionary measure, we have temporarily suspended deposit and withdrawal services on the HTX platform and the HECO Chain gateway.

As of now, we estimate that assets worth $30 million in the HTX hot wallet have been affected by this incident. We assure HTX users that we will fully compensate for any losses incurred due to the hot wallet attack.

We are committed to providing timely updates to the community as the investigation progresses.

Your trust and support during this critical moment are greatly appreciated. Safeguarding user assets and ensuring information security remain our top priorities, and we will take all necessary measures to prevent such incidents from occurring in the future.
