Can anyone here answer this?

Question regarding Etherscan.io and BscScan.com “alerts”

Recently, PolyNetwork Defi (not polygon) was the victim of a hack. PolyNetwork posted the hackers addresses on Twitter. [this one on Etherscan.io](https://etherscan.io/address/0xC8a65Fadf0e0dDAf421F28FEAb69Bf6E2E589963) and [this one on Bscscan.com](https://bscscan.com/address/0x0D6e286A7cfD25E0c01fEe9756765D8033B32C71).

I looked into both wallets, and aside from a shitload of ethereum and BNB, I noticed both wallets were already tagged with the words “heist” and “exploit” as well as a “!” Alert of “this address is reported to be involved in a polynetwork exploit”

My question is, how do wallet address get “marked” on etherscan.io and BSC scan.com?

Who has access to update it/add alerts?

Is there are process to put it alerts, or is it simply based on accusations?

Edit: A few more questions.

Can anyone request that these labels be added if they were hacked/scammed? If not anyone, what’s the standard/threshold to meet before these tags can be added?

Thanks for any insight(s).

What do you think?
