The attacker has siphoned more than 622 million USD, making this the most serious security incident in the history of the industry – clears Poly Network's record $611 million in 2021.

As of today (September 9,), Chainalysis and US law enforcement have tracked down and recovered $30 million in stolen funds.

“We noticed the hacker bridged from luxurious Chain and then transfer to USDD, bridging with BitTorrent chain. The Lazarus Group has performed hundreds of similar transactions on several to launder the money stolen from Axie Infinity, alongside Tornado Cash as usual.”

Erin Plante, Elliptic's global head of investigations, said:

"This is the first time stolen by a group of captured North Korean hackers and we're confident it won't be the last."
