Part of the abducted users of Ledger bitcoins got on Binance
The organizers of the phishing attack on the users of the Ledger hardware wallet moved 51 BTC to the Binance exchange. This was reported by the Telegram channel Goldfoundinshit TM.
Funds from one of the hacker wallets entered the trading platform directly, without the use of mixers.
According to Goldfoundinshit TM, the attackers registered several Binance accounts and sent no more than 2 BTC to each of them, so as not to exceed the limit necessary for verification.
“Fishers used several iterations from the main wallet. They sent a small amount directly to the deposit address, and the main amount was further, ”writes Telegram channel.
According to the Crypto Aml Telegram Bottom, the original hacker wallet has one hundred percent risk and contains stolen coins. The risk of other addresses of attackers is also above 50%.

Updet: Representatives of BINANCE said FORKLOG that for Aml-and blockchain analytics, the exchange uses professional products, rather than random Telegram bots.
“Bota”, such as Whale Alert and similar services, often mistakenly mark the addresses as belonging to Binance, ”they said.
Recall that at the end of October, users of Ledger’s hardware wallets began to receive phishing messages by mail, in which they were offered to establish emergency update. Through it, hackers gained access to cryptocurrency.
The victims connected the attack with the July leak of personal information about a million users from the marketing database. However, the developers of the wallet said they could not confirm this assumption.
In early November, the stolen funds were set in motion. Hackers sent 107 BTC to two bitcoin-wallets and transferred 1.15 million XRP with five payments to the Bittrex exchange address.
