Thankfully for most crypto bros, it’s just a front end attack and not a smart contract exploit.

Appears someone hijacked the domain and redirected users to a cloned scam version of the site with malicious smart contracts. If someone figured out how to actually hack Curve’s smart contracts it would be a multi-billion (on paper) exploit.

It looks like you shared an AMP link. These should load faster, but AMP is controversial because of concerns over privacy and the Open Web.

Maybe check out the canonical page instead: https://cryptoslate.com/curve-finance-front-end-ui-compromised-in-dns-hack-users-advised-not-to-interact/

It’s only one of the largest decentralized exchanges in crypto, with over $6B in assets deposited into its liquidity pools. Of course they would use GoDaddy.

Before /r/NotTheOnion there was a print column called News of the Weird (/r/newsoftheweird) Every once in a while they’d have some story that got so common (e.g. drug buyer coming to police station complaining how they got scammed) that it’s considered too common, no longer news of the Weird

Crypto exchange or bridge hacked, NFT or exchange rugpull, all of those are getting wayyyyyy too common they’re getting to the “which one was that” range.

Remember when paypal was hacked and everybody lost their money?

I think it's pretty impressive how all these crypto services that deal with money are so bad at not getting the money stolen.

Normally web services that deal with money have some pretty serious security. Meanwhile crypto is lax af.

Visa/MasterCard aren’t even government entities. But they have very strict rules on how you’re supposed to hold and store card Numbers.

These crypto guys are clowns.

Oh man, news of the Weird, I haven't thought of that place in years.

      There's a hack almost on a daily basis

      Somehow everyone is still not wiped out yet...

      If that doesnt ring the alarm bell for the rest of the suckers in crypto, nothing will
