Timeline for the DNS Exploit
Hackers stole Curve Finance’s DNS on August 9th, resulting in a loss of $570,000. DNS spoofing enabled the Curve website to be cloned. This routed to their IP address where the cloned website was deployed. Additionally, it added approval requests for a malicious contract.
