Deus Finance Suffers $3M Malware Hack


Spammers targeting DeFi have returned after a brief hiatus, with Deus Finance as their most recent victim.

According to PeckShield data, hackers took $3 million in DIA and Ethereum from Deus Finance. The hack, according to the blockchain firm’s security specialists, caused by a pricing distortion caused by flash loans.

Deus Finance Faces the Consequences

PeckShield broke the news of the hack on Twitter on March 15th. Deus Finance was the target of a recent attack. It’s a full-featured token DeFi market that allows users to construct fake stocks, commercial websites, and other activities.

According to the group, the hacker grabbed 200,000 DAO and 1101.8 ETH, totaling about $3 million in digital assets. They also warned that the losses could be substantially greater than anticipated. PeckShield further stated that the hacker used Multichain to send the funds to TornadoCash, a cryptocurrency compiler.

Deus Finance said immediately after the theft that the DEI lending contracts will terminate. DEUS and DEI, on the other hand, are unaffected. The corporation promised to keep the public informed about the continuing investigations.

The Hacking Success

With the help of a fake of the pricing oracle, the hacker was able to complete a quick loan transaction. It depicts the cost of doubling the price of StableV1 AMM- USD/DEI; even the primary clients liquidated.

The invaders redid the entire process when the breach was successful. The money channeled through Multichain and then washed through TornadoCash.

The crypto industry’s deafening quiet on the subject of hacking, especially in light of the massive sums of money stolen last month. The multi-operational regulatory Wormhole, which built on the Solana Network, was hacked, resulting in 321 million dollars in losses.

Increased Exploits for the Last Two Months

Since the platform’s popularity, invasions have increased dramatically and are becoming more common. Given that DeFi is a new platform, the numerous hacks should come as no surprise. Despite this, the number of hacks is increasing, causing concern among clients and investors.

They had a huge scenario of stolen money in 2021. However, the trend appears to be increasing in 2022, with a 400 million dollar increase in two months.

DeFi has had several virus incursions in the first two months of the New Year, resulting in the theft of hundreds of millions of dollars.

Only two months into the year 2022, and the cryptoverse has already seen a flurry of DeFi hacks, resulting in millions of dollars in losses. The first theft occurred on New Year’s Day, which considers bad luck and a horrible way to begin the year. Tinyman, an independent commercial system built on the Algorand blockchain, suffered a loss of approximately $3 million.
