Welcome to the Crypto Hacker’s Digest, where we bring you the juiciest bits of 24-hour hacking news from the world of crypto. Our goal is to make you laugh and keep you informed, so let’s dive straight in!
First up, we have PeckShieldAlert, which tells us that Contract 0x765776…D744CB77 has been exploited for 20K $USDT. The thief then quickly swapped it for DAI to make sure nobody could trace them. Talk about being slick! They seem to be living by the classic mantra, “get in, get out, and don’t get caught!” Sadly, it looks like the deployer of the contract has taken a big hit.
Next, we have @AraBlocks, who fell victim to a flash loan attack. That’s right; an exploiter by the name of 0xF84efA8a9F7E68855CF17EAaC9c2f97A9d131366 made away with approximately $124k BUSD. They must have been feeling pretty flash, but we hope they don’t spend it all in one place!
Last, but certainly not least is the fake Layerzero airdrop site that has taken Twitter by storm. The people behind it were pretty clever, using a known wallet drainer and creating a fake site. But what they didn’t count on was the vigilant crypto community. We’d like to give a shoutout to all those who reported it and kept others from falling for it. Remember folks, always double-check before clicking on any links.
Well, that’s all we have for today’s Crypto Hacker’s Digest. You might be wondering why we’re making light of such a serious matter. We understand that it can be scary when scammers use technology to commit crimes. But, we hope our humorous approach can help you to see the funny side of things and help you to stay informed and safe.
Until next time, stay safe, and always have a backup plan!
