How it happened, and what can be learned By Cointelegraph1 min read
The March 13 flash loan attack against Euler Finance resulted in over $195 million in losses. It caused a contagion to spread through multiple decentralized finance (DeFi) protocols, and at least 11 protocols other than Euler suffered losses due to the attack.
Over the next 23 days, and to the great relief of many Euler users, the attacker returned all of the exploited funds.
