On 26 June, Harmony Protocol took to Twitter to inform the users that its Horizon bridge faced an attack. Team also confirmed that they are working against this hack to catch the bad actors behind this incident.
“Horizon bridge was exploited by one or more individuals, draining the bridge of approximately $100MM worth of Ethereum tokens…(..)…Our investigation team is working 24×7 to assist with identifying the culprits responsible, and the methods they used.”
