Hackers have stolen $15 million worth of Ether from Crypto.com, cybersecurity company PeckShield has said. The firm's experts believe the attackers are laundering 4,600 ETH using the crypto mixer Tornado Cash. At the same time, Crypto.com representatives have assured that customers' funds are safe:

"We have a small number of users reporting suspicious activity on their accounts. We will be pausing withdrawals shortly, as our team is investigating. All funds are safe."

A few hours later, Crypto.com asked its users to log in to their accounts and reset their two-factor authentication (2FA) settings.
