DeFi protocol Flare on BNB Chain has been attacked by scammers. As a result, nearly 18 million BUSD and 4,000 BNB were stolen. Blockchain security company PeckShield noted that the protocol token has collapsed to zero. Also, experts noted the effect of the rug pull fraudulent scheme.

The hackers managed to transfer part of the stolen funds to the Tornado Cash service.

The hacker started a dialogue with the Flare team through transactions. In the messages, he asked for information about the project and confirmed that this is not a scam. The developers gave a response in which they noted the importance of returning stolen funds to users and restoring security. They offered the hackers to resolve all issues via email.

Last week, it became known that about $4 million was stolen from DFX Finance.
