According to Delong, “an anonymous contractor whose GH is handling AristoK3 injected malicious code into the Miso user interface,” replaced the auction wallet address with his wallet address, and then 865 ethers (ETH) worth $ 3 million acquired. This data can be verified via EtherScan.
The hackers took advantage of a single target from Jay Pegs Auto Mart’s token auction, an NFT project that mimics the value of a 2007 Kia Sedona.
On what he calls “the hardest day of my life so far,” the former senior software engineer at ConsenSys claims to have received little support from the top crypto exchanges FTX and Binance in finding funds.
The attacker (s) cooperated @Nostalgia and many other projects. I recommend checking your user interface for exploits.

Delong openly expressed his doubts about the hacker’s identity as a blockchain and web developer, Eratos. The person has not yet responded to the allegations.
Last month, a white hat security programmer again rescued the SushiSwap protocol via the token startup keyboard platform MISO from a potentially catastrophic $ 350 million hack after discovering a critical flaw in the BitDAO token auction contract.
Fortunately, the mining went unnoticed by the loitering hackers, and trading continued undisturbed. Nevertheless, as the white hat described it, the event shows “a clear step in the wrong direction” through the team’s security measures.
The DeFi platform announced the highly anticipated “7/20” project update in July this year, which unveiled the future launch of a new automated marketplace maker called Trident, designed to be the most capital-efficient company on the market.
