Per the post-mortem, the exploiters utilized BNB Chain, Fantom and Ethereum. The exploit itself was triggered by a previously unknown error in Fantasm's pool contract.
The contracts' devs missed the condition to check for the minimum amount of FTM injections required to mint XFTM, a synthetic asset of Fantasm.
This flaw allowed the attacker to mint XFTM tokens with only FSM and then exchange XFTM for FTM.
Repayment campaign starts on March 11, 2022
FTM tokens were swapped to Ethers; ETH were moved from the protocol via Celer Bridge. The total amount of losses nets approximately $2,622,097.
Today, on March 10, the attackers started to wash their loot through the Tornado Cash mixer.
The Fantasm Finance (FSM) team decided to stop XFTM minting and initiate a repayment program. It is set to go live on March 11 at 9:00 a.m. UTC.
As covered by U.Today previously, numerous DeFis fell victim to flash loan attacks in Q1, 2022. Yearn.Finance (YFI) protocol lost $11,000,000 in early February.
