Solana-based decentralized finance protocol Raydium has suffered an exploit, according to a statement from the developer. An initial investigation by the team revealed that the attacker took over the exchange’s owner account. The team said that “authority” over the automated market maker and farm programs has been paused “for now.”
Twitter user and researcher ZachXBT reported that the attacker has bridged $2 million to Ethereum “so far.”
An exploit on Raydium is being investigated that affected liquidity pools. Details to follow as more is known
