Hundred Finance Latest Victim in DeFi Hacks, Loses $7 Million in Security Breach
Recently there have been lots of security breaches in many popular DeFi protocols. Today, yet another project lost millions in a hacking incident.
Hundred Finance, a lending protocol based on decentralized Finance (DeFi) across multiple chains, has encountered a significant security breach while utilizing the veHND model on the Optimism layer-2 scaling solution.
To ensure market health and stability, the protocol combines with Chainlink oracles. On Saturday, April 15, the protocol declared through its official Twitter account that it had suffered a hack, leading to losses that were approximated at $7 million.
Hundred Finance also stated via Twitter that it had reached out to the hackers and is in discussions with several security teams to better understand the event.
Estimated current loss is ~7m USD.
Once again we hope the hacker will reach out back to us and we will be able to find a joint solution to resolve this matter. 🙏
Thank you everyone for your support and help during these difficult times. ❤️ https://t.co/wLGAl4AAGA
