How did it Happen?

According to PeckShield, the hackers were able to manipulate the updateprice function of the oracle in one BonqDAO smart contract, in other words, the hackers were able to manipulate the price of wALBT.

The above incident however led to the hackers being able to exploit BEUR and wALBT. The cyberpunks then swapped nearly $500,000 in BEUR for Circle’s stablecoin USDC using Uniswap before burning all 113.8 million wALBT to unlock ALBT.

In a short period, the price of ALBT and BEUR plunged considerably, PeckShield and other security analysts noted.

Following this event, BonqDAO announced on Twitter that it is pausing the protocol while working on recovery.

“Other troves remain unaffected. Bonq protocol has been paused. We’re working on a solution that will allow users to withdraw all remaining collateral without repaying BEUR in the troves. It will be released tomorrow morning CET,” it said.
