Hacker Steals $185K from Bill Muray’s Digital Wallet after the charity auction

Actor and Comedian Bill Murray’s recently completed NFT auction witnessed an attack by a hacker, in which 119.2 WETH(around 185k) was stolen. It was an exclusive, single-edition NFT on coinbase and the funds were being raised for a charitable purpose.

The hacker sent the stolen funds to a wallet address linked to the crypto exchange Binance and unionchain.ai.

Murray’s team have filed a police report and are working with crypto analytics firm Chainalysis to catch the attacker.
