The $500 million BNB Chain Bridge hack “highlighted” the record-breaking month, which included other multimillion-dollar exploits, according to InsurAce.
BNB Bridge Exploit Drives Numbers
The month of October saw crypto users experience a new record of hacked funds. The total for hacked funds rose over 430% from September, resulting in $718 million of lost funds.
The team behind InsurAce released their monthly Hacks Report for October on Nov. 2, detailing the hacks discovered across the crypto industry. The report outlines 39 price manipulations, smart contract vulnerabilities, rug pulls, and more.
Some of the hacks were as small as $50,000, but the BNB Chain Bridge exploit of 2 million BNB (over $500 million) was the most devastating of the month.
“There were a series of hacks worth over $100m, but the $570 million BNB Chain exploit was by far the most high-profile one,” according to the report. “Both in terms of the sophisticated attack and the timely response of the Chang Peng Zhao-led [sic] Binance security team.”
Other notable hacks included a Mango Markets hack of $117 million , a rug pull at Freeway of $100 million, and several others in the millions of dollars.
