A hacker has stolen $7.7 million worth of EOS cryptocurrency after one of the 21 maintainers of an EOS blacklist failed to do its job. The hack came to light on Saturday, February 23, in a Telegram public post by EOS42, a web-based community of EOS cryptocurrency owners. EOS42 (also known as EOS Go) said that one of its users had their EOS account compromised by a hacker on February 22. After discovering the hack, the unnamed user followed a normal security procedure that was hard-coded inside the EOS blockchain code to allow the blacklisting of malicious accounts. The procedure implied notifying the top 21 "block producers" (a term used to describe the most efficient miners of new EOS cryptocurrency) of the malicious account's EOS address.
