“We worked hard to manually track down the hacker and get the stolen funds back to CREAM Finance. It can be described as a cyber detective job, not an easy task. Thanks to Pascal Caversaccio, one of the white hat hackers who helped us track down the hacker. “
Lossless also plans to offer a hack mitigation tool that will allow DeFi project developers to take a “hands-on” approach to preventing malicious exploits on their platforms.
