“Hedgey Protocol Hit with $44.7M Loss in Double Cyber Assault”


Hedgey Protocol, a decentralized finance (DeFi) platform, has suffered a staggering loss of $44.7 million in a dual cyber attack. The attack targeted the platform on both the Arbitrum and Ethereum chains, resulting in $42.8 million and $1.9 million being stolen, respectively.

The vulnerabilities exploited in the attack were uncovered by leading cybersecurity watchdog, Cyvers Alerts, raising urgent concerns about the security landscape within the DeFi ecosystem. The attackers swiftly converted the stolen funds into DAI, making recovery efforts more complicated.

Hedgey Protocol has launched a thorough investigation into the breach, working closely with security experts and auditors to understand the root cause of the attack. In the meantime, the platform has issued urgent advisories to its users, advising them to cancel active claims and revoke all approvals to mitigate the risk of further exploitation. Users are also cautioned to remain vigilant against scammers attempting to capitalize on the situation.

The incident highlights the interconnectedness of DeFi platforms and the importance of robust security protocols in the evolving landscape of decentralized finance. As stakeholders collaborate to address vulnerabilities and enhance security measures, the incident serves as a reminder of the ongoing challenges posed by cyber threats in the digital asset space.
