Hacker Makes Off With $12 Million in Latest DeFi Breach

Dan Gunderman reports:

In the latest security incident involving a decentralized finance protocol, cross-chain project pNetwork announced Sunday it had been hacked for 277 pBTC, a form of wrapped bitcoin, with losses worth over $12 million at current value.

In a series of tweets announcing the incident, pNetwork said, “We’re sorry to inform the community that an attacker was able to leverage a bug in our codebase and attack pBTC on BSC, stealing 277 BTC (most of its collateral). The other bridges were not affected. All other funds in the pNetwork are safe.”
