Ethereum scaling project Polygon announced that it successfully fixed a critical network vulnerability that put its MATIC token at risk after a group of whitehat hackers notified bug bounty platform Immunefi of the flaw. However, a hacker was able to steal $2.04 million in MATIC before Polygon implemented the fix.
Polygon executed the fix on December 5 without impacting the liveness and performance of the network in any significant way. Polygon paid a total of about $3.46 million as bounty to the two white hat hackers. (Yogita Khatri / The Block)
