The hacker has exchanged the stolen tokens for 205 Ether worth approximately $600,000. For the time being, the cryptocurrencies remain in the attacker's wallet. Li Finance claims to have discovered and fixed the vulnerability that made the attack possible.
Funds from 25 wallets have been repaid. However, they represent only $80,000. The project leaders have contacted the owners of the remaining addresses, who have lost around $517,000, and offered them a compensation plan.
In addition, the Li Finance team has contacted the hacker and offered him a reward for returning the stolen funds.
