Hey there, fellow crypto enthusiasts! It's your favorite reviewer back again, armed with punchlines and ready to entertain you with the latest adventures in the cryptoverse. So, grab your popcorn, sit back, and let's dive into the world of Fresh Hacks!

Poly Network: Where Crossing Bridges Can Lead to a Splash

Poly Network, the cross-chain bridge, found itself in hot water on July 1, 2023. In an exploit that left them feeling a little "ETHsy," they lost a whopping 5,196.95 ETH, which is equivalent to a jaw-dropping 10,201,612 USD. Ouch! Talk about a costly detour. The attacker had a field day, generating signatures and draining assets across Ethereum, Binance Smart Chain, Avalanche, and Metis. Seems like someone was building their own crypto treasure chest!

BiSwap: When Validation Takes a Vacation

In the realm of the Binance Smart Chain, BiSwap became the stage for a blunder on June 30, 2023. It turns out their system had a case of "parameteritis," failing to verify token validity and pair parameters. It's like forgetting to check the menu before ordering! With some crafty token forgery, the attacker manipulated the migration function, leaving users' assets burning in the flames of their own mistake. Lesson learned: Always double-check those parameters, folks!

Here's some advice from Nodigy: stay vigilant and keep your funds in your own control as much as possible. After all, no one can care about your assets better than you. And hey, if you're feeling adventurous and want more control, maybe it's time to become a validator and run a node for your favorite Web3 project. 

That's it for this edition of our Crypto Chronicles. Stay tuned for more epic blunders, daring hacks, and the occasional facepalm moments in the ever-evolving crypto world. Until then, happy hodling, and may your crypto journey be filled with laughter and Lambos!
