Reaper Farm, previously known as Reaper finance, was just hacked.
The yield aggregator, which is located on the Fantom network, had their multi-strategy vault hacked.
The blackhat hacker took advantage of a critical vulnerability in the smart contract and started draining the vault
The smart contract had a flaw that allowed the hacker to withdraw anybody’s assets to their account. This is because the recipient’s account verification had not been set up properly. The fund was promptly transferred out of the Fantom ecosystem and it is now in Tornado Cash.
The Reaper team quickly came out with an open apology and a recovery plan. The team is committed to repaying all affected users quickly and in full.
They will compensate affected users using funds raised through the sale of vested $OATH tokens and other existing treasury assets.
The affected vaults have been removed from the protocol and it is pending a full external audit.
