In Second Largest DeFi Hack Ever, Blockchain Bridge Loses $320M Ether

Jacquelyn Melenik reports:

Wormhole, one of the largest bridges between Solana and other blockchains, has been hacked for about $320 million, or 120,000 ether — making it the second largest DeFi hack to date.

The interoperability protocol confirmed the exploit in a tweet Wednesday evening.

“ETH will be added over the next hours to ensure wETH is backed 1:1,” the protocol wrote. “More details to come shortly. We are working to get the network back up quickly.”
