Crema Finance Hacker Returns Stolen Funds, Accepts Bounty

The Solana- based decentralized finance procedure Crema Finance can breathe out a breath of relief now as its hacker worked out and accepted over $1M in bounty and returned the majority of the funds.

A couple of days back, Crema Finance suffered a hack worth over $8.8 M by developing an incorrect tick account and evading Crema Finance’s checks.

Soon after discovering the attack, the procedure provided the hacker an $800,000 bounty considered that it represents almost 10% of the stolen funds, otherwise it would start dealing with police to locate the hacker.

However, the hacker had other strategies. The hacker reacted by stating “Crema team, since you are trying to reach me to negotiate, let’s chat.”

After a series of back-and-forth conversations, the aggressor ultimately asked for a far larger bounty of 45,455 SOL, over $1.7 M.

Crema Finance validated the invoice of 6,064 ETH and 23,967.9 SOL in 4 deals into the procedure’s Solana and Ethereum wallets. At the existing currency exchange rate, the funds returned amounted to $7 million.

Cream Finance assures that a settlement strategy will be revealed within the next 2 days now that it has actually struck an arrangement with the “white hat” hacker.

This is not the very first time DeFi platforms have actually provided white hat bounty to the hackers however for the most part, they run off with the cash. Well, just recently Harmony Protocol provided a $1M bounty to its hacker, however the hacker moved the stolen funds to Tornado Cash Ethereum Mixer hence, hinting that the hackers contradict the $1M bounty.
