Dear valued customers,
We are aware of the vulnerability with USDT deposit. And we confirm that OKX is NOT exposed to the vulnerability. Please rest assured that your assets are safe and secure with us.
The professional blockchain technology security team - Slow Mist, found a loophole in UDST deposit:
When a digital asset exchange is processing a USDT deposit, it may fail to verify if the validity of the transaction is "true". So, a user's account can be credited with USDT, even if the deposit failed, and the user will be able to trade with the tokens credited.
After being aware of the loophole, we immediately contacted Slow Mist to further understand the issue and performed a series of examinations. We confirmed that our platform is not affected by this issue.
We would like to thank our business partner, Slow Mist, for notifying us about the risk at once after their discovery. We will continue to provide safe and reliable services to every one of you with our best efforts. Thank you for your support.
