Cross-chain messaging protocol Nomad has become the target of crypto’s latest nine-figure attack after hackers abused a “chaotic” security exploit to steal almost $200 million in digital assets.
Nomad has yet to confirm how hackers were able to steal the funds.
“All that was required to exploit it was to copy the original hacker’s transaction and change the original address to a custom one.
“We aren’t yet providing instructions to return bridge funds.
“At Nomad, our goal is to make it safer to communicate across blockchains,” Nomad said last week.
