An exploit on the Solana-based Raydium decentralized exchange project resulted in a total loss to the platform of $4.4 to $5.5 million. The attacker’s actual spoils were less — somewhere around $2–3.5 million.

Raydium claims the exploit was a trojan attack, though they’ve provided no further evidence to substantiate this. According to Raydium, a trojan allowed an attacker to compromise the private key belonging to the pool owner account. With control over the private key, the attacker was able to withdraw a mix of assets from the pools. They bridged at least $2 million to Ethereum and tumbled them through Tornado Cash; another $1.5 million remained on the Solana chain, where some projects began freezing assets.

Raydium has offered a 10% « bug bounty » to the hacker if they return the stolen funds.
