Some of the stolen coins were frozen shortly after the attack had not been transferred but could not be used by hackers.

“Hackers still accommodate $ 33.4 million [tokens] – because it has been frozen by Tether itself,” Tom Robinson, Elliptic Co-Founder, a London-based Blockchain compliance firm, told the BBC.

He added that it could be seen on the blockchain that “several thousand dollars’ from various other tokens” were detained by hackers.

Mrs. Paxton-Fear has found more than 30 vulnerabilities in the organization starting from the US Department of Defense (DOD) to Verizon Media.

‘No authority’

“Hacking White Hat is about having a scope, not touching several systems, working with a team, writing professional reports that detail our findings, do not go further than we have to show,” he said.

“Our approach is ‘First, Don’t Dangerous’, potentially verified improvements to be applied and do not place any user data at risk.”
