dForce, an Integrated Platform for DeFi Protocols, has suffered a hack attack leading to a loss of approximately $3.65 million. The platform is one of the popular decentralized networks providing a complete set of decentralized finance protocols covering assets, lending, and trading, serving as DeFi infrastructure in Web3. The hackers reportedly managed to steal a total of 1,236.65 ETH and 719,437 USX from dForce’s users on the Arbitrum platform and 1,037,492 USDC from users on the Optimism platform.
wstETH/ETH Curve gauge vaults on Arbitrum & Optimism were exploited a few hours ago, and we immediately paused the dForce Vaults – other parts of the protocol remain intact and user funds are SAFE with dForce Lending.
We will come back with a detailed report and remedies soon.
