On-chain trading platform Thunder Terminal experienced an exploit today with the attacker already transferring 86.5 ETH ($192,000) to Railgun, on-chain sleuth ZachXBT said in his Telegram channel.

“No one’s private keys are compromised,” Thunder said today in a post on X after saying earlier that funds were safe and refunds would be handled shortly. 

“Only 114 wallets out of over 14,000 were affected. Funds are safe going forward,” Thunder said, adding that it stopped the attack in less than nine minutes.

The attacker called Thunder’s X posts “all lies,” according to an on-chain note pointed out by ZachXBT. “Also we have all the user data. 50 ETH and we will delete the data,” said the address appears to be used by the attacker.

Thunder did not immediately respond to The Block’s request for comment.
