The platform is using recovered funds to compensate for the losses incurred during the breach. Out of the total 274,333 AVAX in losses, 239,493 AVAX have been recovered. All accrued fees will be added to the recovered funds, and the team is actively seeking loans from private investors to cover the remaining amount.
Arena Enhances Security Measures in Response to the Hack
Stars Arena relaunch is now firmly set, establish a new smart contract, and ensure its verification by security unit Paladin before its official reactivation. The restored funds will be transferred to the new smart contract to enhance security.
The platform faced a security breach on October 7, despite efforts to patch potential vulnerabilities. The breach resulted in the depletion of liquidity from the project’s wallet address, causing losses of nearly $3 million.
Stars Arena had quickly gained traction before the cyber attack. Its SocialFi app had become a prominent driver of activity on the Avalanche C-chain, amassing a high number of users and a significant Total Value Locked (TVL). During this time, the AVAX price had also experienced substantial growth.
