Hacker interest on SushiSwap
The attack took place specifically on MISO. It is a token platform that falls under the decentralized SushiSwap exchange. Initial estimates and statements from CTO Joseph Delong show that $ 3 million in ETH tokens was stolen.
The Miso front end has become the victim of a supply chain attack. An anonymous contractor by with the GH handle AristoK3 injected malicious code into the Miso front end. We have reason to believe this is @ eratos1122.

Behind the attack is a man under the pseudonym AristoK3, who injected malicious code into the network. In this way, he was able to misuse the NFT token auction, which focused on cars. Delong assured stakeholders that all issues had been resolved.
According to the address provided directly by Delong, the hacker managed to steal 865.1 ETH. At current prices, it’s worth more than $ 3 million.
The CTO then requested assistance from FTX and Binance in order to obtain information on KYC. However, the competition has not yet been able to satisfy him. If funds are not returned, Delong will be forced to file a formal lawsuit through the FBI.
