Decentralized bZx credit protocol has been hacked twice in recent days – Is it safe?
The decentralized Bzx credit protocol has been hit by two successful hacker attacks over the past few days. This led to losses totaling around $ 954,000. The first attack took place on February 14, when $ 318,000 disappeared. The second attack took place on 18 February and there were far more losses of $ 636,000.
In the first hack, the attacker used multiple DeFi protocols to lend and exchange a significant amount of Ethereum and the so-called “wrapped” Bitcoin, the token on the Ethereum blockchain that follows the Bitcoin price. This allowed him to manipulate prices and profit from decentralized trade.
The type of second attack is still largely unclear. However, a CVO report suggests that it was an Oracle attack. Oracle are typically centralized components that provide external data to applications. The company’s CEO said his team is now able to neutralize the hack and prevent the loss of user resources in attacks that would be led by the first or second variant.
