Digital currency management and tracking application, Blockfolio is suspecting a breach, as users are raising complaints of strange and offensive messages. The message was plotted against the black people on the platform. Both the app’s newsfeed and tracking portal has been allegedly compromised. Blockfolio’s team is aware of the ongoing incident, and they are working to resolve the issue, according to a tweet.
Blockfolio users receive offensive messages
Many people took to Twitter to report the development, including the founder of Gokhshtein Media, David Gokhshtein, and the Chief Marketing Officer at MyCrypto, Jordan Spence, who wrote that the platform was breached “in a big way.”
The attackers wrote that crypto service had been closed for black people or “ni**ers” with “immediate loss of all funds.” In addition to asking the users to withdraw all their funds from the platform, the attacker also posted a link to pornographic content. Some users also claimed that the tracking portal was also affected by the breach.
Funds are safe
Blockfolio acknowledged the incident on Twitter and has apologized to the users for the offensive messages. They also informed users that investigations are underway to identify the source of the attack and to address the issue as quickly as possible.
