Renowned CSGO skin trading website CS MONEY has been the victim of a massive hack and it turns out these bad actors stole $6 Million worth of skins.

Valve’s infamous Arms Deal update for CSGO on August 14, 2013, introduced the world to weapon skins. This tactical shooter has never been the same since skin trading has become a massive part of the whole CSGO experience.

Some of these exclusive skin collections can be sold for Million of dollars on third-party sites. Unsurprisingly, hackers also got involved in this trading process due to the massive demand for these skins. Even recently, one CSGO inventory containing $2,000,000+ in skins was allegedly hacked.

Now, a popular skin trading site CS.MONEY has also followed the same path as it was also hacked by bad actors. Apparently, these hackers got access to the trading bots that the website was using to trade expensive CSGO skins.
