This Stealing hacker More than $600 million worth of cryptocurrency from the Poly Network on Tuesday – and who owns it return As of this morning, $342 million of this is being communicated to victims through a series of notes attached to the transaction for the refund. The hacker compared himself to Batman in a deal with the company, and some other interesting statements. (You can see one The full list of back and forth messages is here.)
A sort of trade Recorded by Etherscan, it provides a one-click tool that can be used to view the input data of the transaction in plain text, which contains the following message (for readability, we have converted it from all uppercase to sentence case):
“To cryptocurrency newbies: In the definition of the world, code is the law. So who is the arbiter? We, hackers, are the armed forces. If you acquire weapons while _anonymous_ and protect billions of people from the crowd, you Will you be a terrorist? Or Batman?”
In addition to the back and forth with the Poly Network itself, the hackers also shared information about the supporters who sent them cryptocurrencies, the people who asked them for some benefits, and the newbies to decentralized finance and security.
That exchange was most noticeable because the hacker claim, “If I remove the remaining shitcoins, it will be 1 billion hacks!” and said that they are “not so interested in money”.
Poly Network Responded Provide security bounties in exchange for remaining assets, but hackers Say, “If I make a new token and let [Decentralized Autonomous Organization] “Determine the whereabouts of the token” in response.
Poly Networks Tried Another strategy for the security bounty: “The decision made by the DAO cannot be changed [sic] Assets are the fact that they are stolen from cryptocurrency believers,” the company said. “We want to provide a security bounty, and we hope it will be remembered as the largest white hat hack in history. “
But hackers don’t want to do that. “Winning so much wealth is already a legend,” they said Say“Saving the world will be an eternal legend. I have made the decision to no longer be a DAO.” (It is undeniable that it reads better in the original all-caps message.)
The message continues from there. According to Poly Network, hackers have returned $342 million in stolen funds so far. The company said this morning that the remaining $268 million worth of cryptocurrency is on the Ethereum blockchain.
