The X account of Vitalik Buterin, the Russia-based co-founder of the world's second-largest cryptocurrency Ethereum, has been hijacked by a hacker, who went on to steal $6,91,000 from users who clicked on a corrupted link posted to his feed. According to Decrypt, the hack was first discovered last week when a post appeared on Buterin's post announcing the release of a set of commemorative non-fungible tokens (NFTs) from software provider Consensys.
