Crypto intelligence firm SlowMist published a report on Jan. 27 that detailed how SushiSwap (SUSHI) had undergone a “scavenger attack” for a second time.
- SlowMist states that a transaction fee for a DIGG-WBTC trading pair had been “taken away by the attacker through special means” on Jan. 27
- The attack involved the DEX’s SushiMaker, which handles the routing and fees, and the creation of a new trading pair that exploited exchange prices
- SlowMist says that the attack is not a grave one, but rather a “scavenger hunt”, though a large amount could be siphoned if more capital was used
- SushiSwap first experienced this kind of attack in late Nov. 2020; SushiSwap's developers have acknowledged the issue and have already implemented a fix
- Founded in 2018, SlowMist is a blockchain security company that has served the likes of Binance, OKEx and Huobi
