FTX, a crypto exchange that went bankrupt, has temporarily frozen the accounts of users who were affected by the Kroll cybersecurity breach and accessed its claims portal.
The exchange announced this on X (the new Twitter) to prevent more damage or incidents after the hack.
It also urged users not to change their claims or the agreed schedules because of the breach. FTX assured that the data submitted through the Kroll portal was still safe and valid.
Kroll, the agent in charge of FTX’s bankruptcy claims and notices, suffered a breach that exposed some non-sensitive data of the claimants in the bankruptcy case.
Kroll told FTX that it was handling the situation and monitoring it closely. FTX confirmed this by checking that the breach did not affect the security of passwords, systems or funds.
