Cream Finance Suffers Another Exploit as Attacker Runs Away With USD 100M+
Blockchain analytics and security firm PeckShield flagged the attacker’s address, while Cream finance confirmed that they “are investigating an exploit on C.R.E.A.M. v1 on Ethereum and will share updates as soon as they are available.”
CREAM tanked following the news and, at 15:11 UTC, it trades at USD 111.61, dropping by almost 30% in an hour and a day.
Just this past August, Cream Finance lost USD 25m in another flash loan attack.
How about not using $CREAM @CreamdotFinance at all.— Skinnvesten (💙,🧡) (@Skinnvaesten) October 27, 2021
First exploit, it's okay, mistakes happen, and can easily come back from it. Second exploit, uh buddy, didn't you learn the first time?
Third exploit, severe incompetence, do not use Cream.
Well the devs should come out with an IRS and SEC threat before that— thesnakecharmer☀ (@snakecharmerXBT) October 27, 2021
