Cryptocurrency exchange Twitter account hacked by 'disgruntled employee'

Coin Telegraph reports that the Twitter account of Russian cryptocurrency exchange Latoken has been hacked by a hacker who began spreading allegations that the exchange is a scam.

According to the posts posted by the hacker.

The hacker changed the account's profile picture to a fraud warning picture and modified the Twitter bio to "Don't be a leading scam platform!".

The hacker explained the reasons for his penetration of the platform, that the stock exchange treats employees unfairly and fires employees without reason.

The hacker also accused the exchange of deliberately trying to “scam money from projects” and promised 100% to 500% growth without actually realizing it.

The hacker also described Latoken founder Valentin Preobrazinsky as a "liar" and a "scam seller".

In response to the incident, LaToken's official Telegram account posted an update informing its users of the hack.

The exchange said it believed the charges were the work of a "disgruntled employee" and that their team was in contact with Twitter support to fix the issue.
