|Hedera Exploit: Attackers Target Smart Contract Service Code|
Decentralized proof-of-stake (PoS) blockchain Hedera finally confirmed a security breach. In an update, the team behind the platform revealed that attackers managed to exploit the Smart Contract Service code of the protocol's mainnet to transfer Hedera Token Service tokens held by victims' accounts to their own.
It said the root cause of the issue has been identified by the team, and are working on a solution.
Hedera further noted that the attackers targeted those accounts which were used as liquidity pools on multiple decentralized exchanges - including Pangolin, SaucerSwap, and HeliSwap - that utilize Uniswap v2-derived contract code ported over to use the Hedera Token Service to carry out the theft.
Hedera announced shutting down network services and initially cited experiencing 'network irregularities' as a reason. In the latest confirmation thread posted by the platform, it said the mainnet proxies are still turned off to prevent the attacker from being able to steal more tokens, thereby removing user access to the mainnet. The team is currently working on a solution.
'Once the solution is ready, Hedera Council members will sign transactions to approve the deployment of updated code on mainnet to remove this vulnerability, at which point the mainnet proxies wi...
