$100 Million in $PYR Stolen from Vulcan Forged Marketplace

Blockchain gaming ecosystem, Vulcan Forged, has revealed details of a horrendous hack that recently took place on their platform. Devious scoundrels made off with 4.5 million $PYR tokens from 98 wallets, with an approximate value of $100 million.

Investigators believe the hack took place on December 13, and exploited an as yet unrevealed vulnerability in the Vulcan Forged system. It was initially understood that 148 wallets were involved in the heist. However, whilst undergoing the investigation, Vulcan Forged revised this figure down to 98.

Vulcan Forged was quick to react to this grand larceny, publishing the wallet address responsible followed by notifying all major exchanges to ensure they blacklist the address. One of which, revealed that they believe they have KYC information on file for the culprit which could result in the swift consequences for the criminal.
