Harmony Protocol Is Offering A $1,000,000 Reward For The Return Of Stolen Money
Earlier today, the proof-of-stake (PoS) blockchain Harmony Protocol tweeted an offer of a $1 million reward for information regarding the Thursday hack of its Ethereum-linked Horizon bridge, which resulted in the loss of $100 million in cryptocurrency.
If the money was returned, the business stated, it would “argue for no criminal prosecution.”
Harmony Protocol’s founder and CEO, Stephen Tse, also tweeted:
Security professionals on Friday provided some insights into the intrusion while the Harmony team is still conducting their probe. Using two likely compromised private addresses, the attacker took control of a multi-signature wallet used to deploy Harmony’s bridge, claims Polygon’s chief information security officer Mudit Gupta, and drained the cash.
Today, Tse said that his “team has found evidence that private keys were compromised, leading to the breach of our Horizon bridge.”
He added that while the investigation was ongoing, Harmony would “continue taking steps to further harden our operations and infrastructure security.”
