Cream Finance Suffers Another Exploit as Attacker Runs Away With USD 100M+
By John Arnold on October 27, 2021
Ethereum (ETH)-powered decentralized finance (DeFi) project Cream Finance (CREAM) suffered another flash loan attack as the attacker reportedly stole more than USD 100m worth of tokens.
Blockchain analytics and security firm PeckShieldflagged 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. ___
