FireStake profits from drama Osmosis
As reported by CoinCu, on June 8, the Osmosis DEX exchange on Cosmos was discovered to have a vulnerability, resulting in an estimated loss of more than $5 million.
The vulnerability appeared when a user added liquidity to the Osmosis pool and then tried to withdraw the money only to find his asset value increased by 50%. After being spread, many users discovered the vulnerability was real and massively used it for profit.
Osmosis then had to close the DEX and also stop the underlying blockchain while fixing the problem.
On June 9, FireStake, a staking project and participating as a validator for many blockchains of the Cosmos ecosystem, including Cosmosis, revealed “shocking” information that they had participated in the “robbery” on the internet and withdraw a large amount of money.

Finally, the Twitter account CIA Officer, a well-known anonymous figure in the DeFi community, on June 8 admitted a “foolish” act of himself.
This person said that a few days ago, he responded to a request for 1 MATIC from another user and agreed to help. The other person then used this 1 MATIC to attack the ApolloX project, causing 1.6 million BUSD damage.
Because of the amount of 1 MATIC, many people suspected that the CIA Officer was the culprit behind the incident, forcing this researcher to stand out and complain in front of the community.
