[ad_1]

Decentralized finance protocol Zunami Protocol has confirmed it has encountered an attack on its “zStables” stablecoin pools.

Blockchain security firm PeckShield estimates over $2.1 million was stolen from Zumani’s Curve Pool on Aug. 13, pegging the exploit to a price manipulation issue. Fellow blockchain security firm Ironblocks arrived at a similar figure.

PeckShield detected the exploit on Curve on Aug. 13 at 10:47 UTC, which was confirmed by Zunami about 20 minutes later.

Zunami said that collateral in the pools remain secure and that the issue is now under investigation.

It is currently believed a flash loan price manipulation attack has taken place, with Zunami USD and Zunami ETH pools impacted

Zunami is a decentralized revenue aggregator protocol that allows users to stake stablecoins for yield, with its largest stable pools situated on Curve.

Cointelegraph reached out to Zunami for comment but did not receive an immediate response.

This is a developing story, and further information will be added as it becomes available.
