BNB Exploit: Buying and Selling stopped


Why didn't Ankr simply change the contract to prevent buying and selling?

Answers 1

Because the contract was already compromised and any changes we made could be undone or altered by the malicious actor.

To take a more secure approach to prevent any further damage that could cover several leakage points we did a one shot replace with the original contract and took preventive measures so it wouldn’t be reverted again.
