John McAfee Calls on Kaspersky and Other Cybersecurity Firms To Help Binance

While the decentralized space is usually divided on most of the developments and only indulge in blame games, the security breach of Binance has brought in a very rare sense of unity in the crypto space. Binance is not only being offered support from all corners, but there is no blame game going around. People have gracefully accepted the security lapse as a mistake and looking for a solution together.

CZ also accepted that the hacker has helped in identifying certain security gray areas which they would not have found if not for the current breach on the exchange.

McAfee also called upon other major cybersecurity firms like Kaspersky to come together and help Binance in resolving the current security lapse. However, it is to be noted that the funds of customers are safe as Binance offers insurance for such security lapses.
