South Korean crypto exchange Upbit has suspended deposits and withdrawals for Curve Finance's token, CRV.
"Today, certain vulnerabilities have been discovered in some of the stablecoin pools associated with Curve (CRV)," the exchange's announcement reads. It added, "As a result, CRV is currently experiencing significant volatility. We advise exercising caution when considering any investments related to CRV."
DeFi platform Curve Finance faced a reentrancy vulnerability — a security flaw that allows for the potential draining of funds from uninterrupted contract calls — yesterday and into today. Significant outflows were linked to interactions exploiting the reentrancy vulnerability in specific Vyper compiler versions.
Additionally, millions of CRV tokens were stolen minutes before a white hat rescue mission to safeguard the funds.
