BlockThreat - Week 29, 2021

THORChain | EthCC | Twitter | MEV

Got a fun edition for you this week featuring a number of great blocksec talks from EthCC, podcasts, and research papers. THORChain contracts and users continue getting attacked with more than $8M stolen. In other news, Malaysian police adopted a unique approach to fighting illegal mining.

Let’s dive into the news, but first a special thank you to Trail of Bits which sponsored this week’s edition:
