Binance Smart Chain has paused its operations following the exploit which saw the attacker take off with some $100 million. In addition, according to blockchain security company SlowMist, there is more than $400 million worth of crypto that was frozen on the BNB Chain before the hacker was able to pocket the money.
The cross-chain bridge, BSC Token Hub, was the target of the exploit, which the attacker manipulated to receive two million BNB tokens. Before the chain was halted, he managed to transfer more than $100 million to Ethereum, Phantom Protocol, and Polygon networks.
According to blockchain developer, oxfoobar, counting the frozen assets, this is one of the two largest crypto hacks of all time. Luckily for Binance Smart Chain users, the BNB tokens were not stolen from their wallets, but were instead created by the attacker.
