Victim of Major DeFi Cyberattack Offers Its Hacker a Job

  • PolyNetwork is courting attacker as it tries to recoup money
  • ‘Mr. White Hat’ says the breach was ‘hacking for good’

About a week after a hacker stole $610 million from PolyNetwork in what was likely the biggest heist in history of so-called decentralized finance, the victim has offered its attacker a job. 

The hacker claimed the attack against the PolyNetwork platform -- which lets users swap tokens across multiple blockchains -- was an act of “hacking for good” to “save the project.” The attacker has since promised to return the money and so far delivered about half of it.
