Hacker mints 1b CGT tokens worth $40m in Curio ecosystem | #hacking | #cybersecurity | #infosec | #comptia | #pentest | #hacker

The Curio defi project suffered an attack, and Cyvers Alerts experts estimated the damage at $16 million.

According to analysts at Cyvers Alerts, the hack most likely occurred due to a vulnerability in the permissioned access logic, which allowed the attacker to create an additional 1 billion CGT tokens. As a result, the hacker took possession of CGT tokens worth almost $40 million.

The Cyvers Alerts message comes after Curio warned the community about a smart contract exploit.

According to Cyvers Alerts, the MakerDAO-based smart contract used in the ecosystem was used on the Ethereum side.

“Unfortunately, MakerDAO’s based Smart contract used within our ecosystem were exploited on the Ethereum side. We’re actively addressing the situation and will keep you updated. Rest assured, all Polkadot side and Curio Chain contracts remain secure.”
