White Hat Hacker Surprise for Poly Network


New York, NY -- (SBWIRE) -- 08/23/2021 -- Hackers don't have the best reputation - for most businesses the idea of working with someone who has the skills to take advantage of network and system vulnerabilities is an intimidating thought. However, this is also a key step in protecting assets, as decentralized finance platform Poly Network recently discovered. An anonymous hacker stole $600 million from Poly Network, creating what has been labelled the biggest heist in cryptocurrency history. However, what came next turned out to be rather unexpected, as the hacker then gave all the money back. Poly Network has labeled the hacker "Mr. White Hat" - an ethical hacker - and the company even thanked the hacker for the issues that had been exposed in its security as a result of his heist. Interestingly, it has been noted that it would have been incredibly difficult for the hacker to spend the stolen cryptocurrency - the public nature of blockchain transactions makes it almost impossible to launder money. No one really knows how much of an influence this may have had on the hacker's decision to pay the funds back.
