$80 million in crypto have been stolen as a result of a re-entrance attack against Rari Capital and Fei Protocol DeFi platforms

Chinese crypto journalist and blogger Colin Wu has spread the news about a hacker attacking DeFi platforms Rari Capital and Fei Protocol, draining them for a massive $80 million in crypto.

Multiple pools related to these platforms have been attacked, tweeted Wu, citing data provided by BlockSec.

The reason cited by Wu is a re-entrance vulnerability which can often be exploited. A re-entrance attack takes place when an execution of a smart contract gets interrupted in the middle and then initiated from the beginning once again (re-entered).

A famous example of such an attack was the DAO hack in June 2016, when over $60 million in Ethereum was stolen.

Fei Protocol also posted a tweet, saying that they are aware of the exploit on their multiple DeFi pools. They have suspended all borrowing operations on them to prevent further stealing of funds. The author of the tweet has offered the hacker to keep $10 million from the stolen crypto as a bounty and return the rest of the funds that belong to their users.
