Blockchain Security Firm Spots Vulnerability and Averts Potential $1.9 Billion Loss for ZkSync Era
ChainLight, a blockchain security audit firm, discovered a vulnerability in the zkSync Era protocol that could have resulted in a potential loss of $1.9 billion. The bug allowed for the manipulation of transactions within a block, potentially leading to layer-1 smart contracts accepting manipulated transaction values. However, exploiting the bug would have required the highest level of security privileges across zkSync Era’s infrastructure.
