BlockThreat - Week 30, 2021

PolyYeld | Levyathan | MEV | Monero | REvil | StableMagnet |

Greeting, shadowy crypto super-coders! It’s always a good week when the good folks win. StableMagnet funds were recovered and REvil universal decryptor is being distributed to victim companies. In other news, a few DeFi projects were hacked with a very curious case of an MEV bot getting trapped and promptly relieved of ETH. Users should be cautious of malicious airdrops and an ongoing Android crypto-stealer malware campaign. Monero users are advised to wait at least an hour before using received funds, great smart contract analysis tools were released, and more events in the never boring world of blockchain security!

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