  • State-Sponsored North Korean Hackers Likely Behind $100M Crypto Heist: Report

    The Lazarus Group, a hacking organization allegedly supported by the North Korean government, likely carried out the $100 million cyberattack on cryptocurrency project Harmony’s (CRYPTO: ONE) Horizon Bridge. What Happened: Analysis from blockchain analytics firm Elliptic finds that the hack and subsequent laundering of funds is consistent with the activities of the Lazarus Group. See Also: How Bitcoin Crash Could Hurt Kim Jong-Un's Weapons Tests On June 24, hackers stole $100 million worth of cryptocurrencies, including Ethereum (CRYPTO: ETH), Wrapped Bitcoin (CRYPTO: WBTC), and Binance Coin (CRYPTO: BNB) from the Horizon Bridge. Elliptic was able to trace the funds being laundered through coin mixing tool Tornado Cash (CRYPTO: TORN) to several Ethereum wallets. “By sending these funds through Tornado, the thief is attempting to break the transaction trail back to the original theft. This makes it easier to cash out the funds at an exchange,” stated Elliptic in the report. At the time of writing, a little over 35,000 ETH worth around $39 million has been sent to Tornado Cash. The Lazarus Group has been linked to a number of large-scale crypto thefts, including the $540 million Ronin Bridge attack. Elliptic estimates that the total amount of stolen funds amassed by the group exceeds $2 billion.

  • Axie Infinity's Ronin Bridge Restarts Following $625 Million Exploit, Providing Compensation To Victims Of The Hack

    Axie Infinity (CRYPTO: AXS) has announced its Ronin Bridge will be restarting three months after an exploit of $625 million. What Happened: On Tuesday, June 28, Axie Infinity’s Ronin Bridge was restarted following external audits and internal audits. These audits were carried out by blockchain security companies Certik and Verichains. The tweet making the announcement stated all user funds will be backed with a 1:1 ratio by the newer bridge. As revealed by CoinDesk, the upgraded bridge promises a circuit-breaker system to improve the bridge’s security by pausing large-scale withdrawals that may indicate exploits. The attack occurred earlier this year in March when the network’s private keys were hacked and used to make fake withdrawals. Losses include 173,600 Ethereum (CRYPTO: ETH) and 25.5 million USDC (CRYPTO: USDC). Sky Mavis, Axie Infinity’s head designer, stated the company would compensate the victims of this exploit. This mission for compensation began with $150 million being raised in April, in a fundraising round led by Binance (CRYPTO: BNB). Why It’s Important: The exploit undertaken on Axie’s Ronin Bridge follows an array of other multi-million dollar exploits that have occurred previously this year. The company's mission to repay victims of this exploit protects retail investors who had major parts of their portfolio invested in Axie Infinity’s Ronin Bridge. Immediately following the exploit, Ronin protected the Axie Infinity ecosystem by lessening its token’s emissions. However, following the exploit and amidst bearish market conditions, Axie Infinity is currently trading at $15.45, down more than 93% from its prior all-time highs. Bridges, such as the Ronin Bridge, play a crucial role across blockchains. The Ronin Bridge facilitates assets moving between the Ronin and Ethereum blockchains. Therefore, as exploited funds are being compensated to investors and the Ronin Bridge is restarting, Axie Infinity must continue to proceed cautiously to protect investors and their funds. © 2022 Benzinga.com.
