Zunami Protocol’s Stablecoin Pools Targeted in DeFi Attack, $2.1 Million Estimated Loss

Decentralized finance platform Zunami Protocol warns against purchasing zETH and UZD stablecoins following a recent attack on its “zStables” pools hosted on Curve Finance.

In a recent blow to the world of decentralized finance (DeFi), Zunami Protocol has issued a cautionary advisory, urging users to refrain from acquiring its Zunami Ether (zETH) and Zunami USD (UZD) stablecoins. The warning comes in the aftermath of a sophisticated attack that targeted the protocol’s “zStables” pools, which were hosted on the Curve Finance platform.

On August 13, Zunami Protocol took to its official X (Twitter) account to confirm the occurrence of an attack on its stablecoin pools. The protocol assured users that their collateral remained intact, emphasizing that a thorough investigation was already underway to identify and address the potential exploit.

Preliminary estimates provided by prominent blockchain security firm PeckShield indicate that the attack resulted in the loss of over $2.1 million from Zunami’s Curve Pool. The exploit appears to be linked to a price manipulation issue, according to PeckShield’s analysis.
