The hacker stole 30,000 EOS ($ 110,000) thanks to a bug in the decentralized EOSPlay application. The cost of the attack was just over 300 EOS ($ 1000), reports CryptoSlate.

The hacker stole 30,000 EOS ($ 110,000) thanks to a bug in the decentralized EOSPlay application. The cost of the attack was just over 300 EOS ($ 1000), reports CryptoSlate .

The attacker involved the DeFi service EOS REX , which allows leasing network resources (RAM, CPU) from other users. The hacker filled the blocks with his transactions, ensuring a constant victory in EOSPlay.

The incident has already commented on CTO of Block.one startup Dan Larimer, who is the creator of EOS.

“The network is working correctly. This is no different from incidents when attackers spam Ethereum and Bitcoin with high-commission transactions. The network is not frozen, there was simply no extra bandwidth. "

Some users have already criticized Larimer.

“In Bitcoin or Ethereum, you can still send a transaction if you set a sufficiently high commission. In this case, many did not have enough CPU to lease another CPU – for them, the network froze. "It works correctly" is not the best answer. "

Entrepreneur Jared Moore said the network was inaccessible to dApps and his wallet.

Another user reported an attack on EOS.

Recall that from July to November 2018, hackers carried out 27 attacks on decentralized applications in EOS and stole 400 thousand EOS.

In the first quarter of this year, according to AnChain, 75% of transactions in dApps on EOS were made by bots.
