According to reports from analytics firm PeckShield, decentralized exchange (DEX) protocol NonSwap was hacked and lost more than $1 million through 2 altcoins. Meanwhile, attacks on decentralized finance (DeFi) protocols do not stop.
NonSwap attackers steal 2 altcoins
PeckSheild found that NonSwap attackers stole 535,000 Tether (USDT) and 158 Wrapped Ethereum (WETH). USDTs were converted to ETH via the distributed network service 1inch (1INCH) and also transferred from Ethernet Square to the anonymous trading platform Tornado Cash. Tornado Cash is an unattended privacy solution for the Ethereum network based on zkSNARKs technology.
The protocol enables users to disconnect in on-chain activity to improve transaction confidentiality between the recipient and destination address. Hackers can also lose track of them in this way. Hackers used an invalid ‘K’ value check in the NowSwap double contract to attack the protocol.
DeFi hacks don’t slow down: Here are some recent hacks
cryptocoin.com As we reported, the DeFi hacking trend is spreading like wildfire and protocols are afraid they may be the next victim. Recently, CREAM Finance has suffered directly from Defi protocol exploit for the first time. In the attack on August 31, CREAM lost 462,079,976 AMP tokens and 2,804.96 ETH tokens.
Cross-chain DeFi protocol PolyNetwork suffered the largest DeFi hack worth $610 million. The protocol was hacked on August 10, and the hacker managed to override the “accountants” permission. The hacker transferred the stolen funds to three different Blockchain wallets of Ethereum, Binance and Polygon. Most of the funds have been converted to USDC, USDT and BUSD stablecoins. However, the attacker recently returned all the money via a private key.
