MicroStrategy’s X Account Compromised

hacker security crypto X

MicroStrategy’s X account has been hacked, with malicious links posted to a fake airdrop of a so-called “official” Ethereum-based MSTR token. Users who clicked on the links were directed to a copycat MicroStrategy webpage that prompted them to connect their wallets and claim the fake airdrop. Once users granted the necessary permissions, the attackers were able to automatically drain their wallets.

According to blockchain sleuth ZachXBT and anti-scam platform Scam Sniffer, losses from the scam have already exceeded $440,000. One user alone lost over $420,000 worth of altcoins, including wBAI, CHEX, and wPOKT. The MicroStrategy attacker’s wallet currently holds over $329,000 worth of Ethereum-based tokens.
