Syrup Pools emergency brakes are pulled on PancakeSwap

There have been signals of an emergency around the SYRUP smart contract. CertiK audit seems not sufficient enough to avoid compromises. In the very unfortunate scenario, we sympathise with those that came across any losses.

An exploit found in the SYRUP smart contract forced PancakeSwap to put an end to their SYRUP pools. Even with a CertiK audit, it appears the contracts can still be compromised.

Pancake Swap Exploit Emergency

PancakeSwap’s Governance token “SYRUP” has been compromised. A flaw in the contract would allow staked CAKE to be removed without burning the SYRUP minted. People could un-stake via the contract’s emergency withdrawal function; this function would not eliminate the existing SYRUP that was created. They could then re-stake the CAKE tokens and keep receiving the SYRUP token as a reward. The result; about 30 Million SYRUP tokens have been minted fraudulently. Because the SYRUP token was used for staking in the SYRUP pools and bad actors staked & sold all the fake syrup tokens, pulling down prices and the APY. As a result, it put honest investors at a disadvantage.

Certik Audit

Even though PancakeSwap has been audited by CertiK and paid for insurance, they are not covered for the losses as the contract only was audited in “delta,” meaning they only checked things that were different from the original SUSHI contract. PancakeSwap, therefore, was unable to put in a claim at Certik insurance.
