According to the Aeternity blog, around 82,000 ETH (of 102,000 ETH) sent to Aternity during Phase 2 were sent by an attacker to address 0xB3764761E297D6f121e79C32A65829Cd1dDb4D32 via an internal transaction.
Additionally, Aeternity team assures that all funds, collected during the first stage of ICO are safe. Also, team is not planning to close the Aeternity project. At the moment, Multisig Hack Response team and other members of Ethereum community help Aeternity to investigate this situation.
As we mentioned before, due to Parity hack, intruders were able to steal around $30 000 000. CTO of Parity named at least 3 affected projects:
- Edgeless Casino,
- Swarm City.
Additionally, The DAO.Casino home page reports that the collected tokens were protected from theft by WhiteHat. At the moment Token sale of the project is temporarily suspended.
The Aeternity blog also reports that the wallets of other well-known projects have also come to the attention of intruders. However, with the efforts of the WhiteHat group of hackers, the funds worth about $ 80.6 million were still protected from theft.

Meanwhile, Vitalik Buterin on Twitter has expressed his indignation that some, according to him, "trolls", ostensibly for the return of stolen funds, are urging him right now to do the hardfork:
Does anyone else notice how literally the only people calling for a hard fork or chain rollback right now are concern trolls? https://t.co/b1jL1UFX8a
