DeFi insurance agreement Nexus Mutual stated on Twitter that the personal address of its founder Hugh Karp was attacked by a platform user, stolen 370,000 NXM and lost more than 8 million US dollars. The official said that this is a targeted attack, only the official name, Karp used a hardware wallet, the attacker obtained remote access to his computer, and modified the wallet plug-in MetaMask, deceived him to sign the transaction. The attacker, also a Nexus Mutual member, completed KYC (know-your-customer) 11 days ago and switched to a new address on Dec. 3, before gaining remote access to Karp's computer and modified MetaMask wallet extension, according to the company's tweets. That tricked him into signing a different transaction that transferred funds from his hardware wallet to attacker's address.
