The now-defunct crypto exchange FTX has recently implemented a provisional suspension on the user accounts. This development is witnessed after the recent cybersecurity hack of Kroll as the crypto exchange attempts to secure impacted clients. The platform announced the respective decision on its official X account. It labelled this move to be a preemptive measure that would prevent future events or more harm after the hack.
FTX Halts User Accounts Because of the Concerns Dealing with Kroll Cyber Hack
The crypto exchange has advised its consumers against customizing their assertions or modifying the accepted schedules. This suggestion plays the role of a proactive response to the cybersecurity breach. In addition to this, the crypto exchange also assured about the claim data’s security. It mentioned that the claim data provided via the Kroll client claims portal is still valid and secure.
Kroll is known as an agent that FTX appointed for noticing and claims in its current bankruptcy proceedings. It went through a hack that unfortunately exposed its non-sensitive data linked with claimants engaged in the bankruptcy lawsuit. While reacting to this development, Kroll reassured FTX concerning its active organization of the present situation.
It also added that the agent is continuously carrying out the oversight. Subsequently, FTX provided substantiation of the respective assurance. In this respect, the crypto exchange verified that the hack had not impacted the security of financial funds, internal systems, or account passwords.

Kroll straightly informed the affected users regarding the preemptive measures for self-protection. FTX moved on to say that Kroll did not tackle the account passwords of FTX. According to the crypto exchange, its internal systems have also not witnessed any impact. On the other hand, a blockchain sleuth ZachXBT asserted that FTX consumers have begun receiving phishing emails.
