Transit Swap, a multi-chain decentralized exchange (DEX) aggregator, lost around $21 million as a result of a hacker exploiting an internal fault in a swap contract. Following the finding, the DEX apologized to users and is working to locate and retrieve the stolen monies.
According to Transit Swap, a defect in the programming let a hacker steal an estimated $21 million.
Peckshield, along with other investigators like as SlowMist, Bitrace, and TokenPocket, joined the hunt for the hacker. According to Transit Swap:
“We now have a lot of valid information such as the hacker’s IP, email address, and associated on-chain addresses. We will try our best to track the hacker and try to communicate with the hacker and help everyone recover their losses.”
The current investigation suggests that the hacker may have made previous withdrawals from recognized exchanges. Transit Swap now reports that the hacker has returned 70% of the stolen assets.
