8ight Finance users are out of pocket.
Although this is our first story taking place on the Harmony chain, there’s nothing new about the protocol.

Poor OPSEC makes poor users.
”Security 101 - repeat after me…”
Despite their promises that a multi-sig was in place, (it was not), this protocol fell to the most basic of errors.
So basic in fact, that many are accusing the developer of pocketing the funds themselves.
As always, some of the more financially, or emotionally, involved users, are planning their revenge. Have any of these groups of victims ever caught their attacker?
If this was a planned event, then it’s likely that the developers have a history of such behaviour.
But surely they wouldn’t use the same brand name twice?
$1.75 million gone, and perhaps the most interesting part of the story is that the developers were still using Facebook.
When will we stop referring to a blatant disregard for cyber security as “getting hacked"?
8ight Finance - maybe hacked, maybe rugged, definitely rekt.

OG decentralised exchange KyberSwap got rekt across six chains, for a total loss of over $48M. Perhaps there’s some good news in store for KyberSwap and LPs, or is the attacker just toying with us?
It's been a rough few weeks for Justin Sun. Today, another $99M went missing as HECO Bridge and HTX (again) were hacked in short succession. His Excellency makes sure to never stay out of the spotlight for long…
Deja-vu, anyone? Market maker Kronos Research lost $26M over the weekend, leading to liquidity issues on closely-associated CEX Woo X. Where have we heard that before?
