As an earlier Coincu News article updated, on February 10, the DeFi protocol dForce was hit by a quick loan attack, and the attacker made $3.65 million.
Following the thread, dForce stated that the exploiter manipulated the price of wstETH/ETH using a Curve pool reentrancy flaw, resulting in the liquidation of 1,031.42 ETH and 30.31 ETH equivalent of wstETH/ETH Curve LP tokens on Arbitrum and Optimum, respectively. It also produced $2.3 million in protocol debt.
The hack caused around $3.6 million in total damages, according to BlockSec and PeckShield, two top crypto security companies.
A reentrancy vulnerability, which can happen when an attacker repeatedly calls an intelligent contract function and pulls assets from it before the contract updates its internal state, has made the attack possible. This may occur if the smart contract code contains a defect or inadequate security measures are not taken.
