Balancer, a popular Ethereum-based defi protocol, has warned users that they should withdraw funds from vulnerable pools on the project after receiving a report of a critical vulnerability. No funds have been lost thus far, and the project has pools that could be impacted, though not all pools can be paused. Because of the nature of crypto projects, Balancer can’t simply patch the vulnerability, and is now having to urge users to withdraw their liquidity as soon as possible.
Balancer had around $850 million TVL prior to the announcement. Since revealing the issue, users have removed more than $150 million in assets from the project. Balancer has stated that “only 1.4% of the total TVL is at risk”, though 1.4% of $850 million would still be a sizeable $12 million windfall for any potential exploiter.
