Reportedly Unlock Protocol was compromised and the hacker successfully drained 20 ETH from the platform. 

Unlock is a Defi protocol that provides the ability for creators to monetize their digital content with a few lines of code in a fully decentralized way. 

On 21 April 2023, Crypto security platform Cyvers reported that Unlock Protocol was compromised by an unknown hacker & that hacker successfully drained 20 ETH from the platform.

Investigation revealed that the hacker tricked the platform with the help of the protocol’s smart contract vulnerability in the postLockUpgrade() function, which helped the hacker to withdraw funds without user verification.

To remain anonymous, hackers used the popular Ethereum crypto mixer platform Tornado Cash, which is banned in the US since 2022. 

At present, it is unconfirmed whether the Unlock Protocol team is aware of this hacking incident or not because there is no information/notice/warning about this hack attack seen on Twitter or the official website.
