This cyberattack resulted in the liquidity of the AURY-USDC pool plummeting from a robust $1.5 million to a mere $312,000.

Interestingly, in October 2022, Aurory's team confidently declared that a cross-SyncSpace hack was virtually impossible due to the technology's reliance on signatures for Syncing and DeSyncing assets.

The SyncSpace bridge serves as a crucial component of Aurory's ecosystem, allowing users to seamlessly transfer assets between on-chain and off-chain environments with a single transaction.

It essentially empowers gamers to move in-game assets from the off-chain realm to the blockchain whenever they choose to DeSync them.

Aurory's team member Tim provided insights on the situation in a discussion on X (previously Twitter). He revealed that the attacker had stolen tokens belonging to the team, which were subsequently liquidated.

Tim further stated that the team was actively repurchasing the stolen tokens while conducting a thorough investigation. A post-mortem report is expected to be released following a comprehensive audit.

As of writing, the AURY token is trading at $0.95, marking a 33.37% decrease in the past 24 hours.
