Exploiter moves ETH and TORN tokens amid Tornado Cash Tornado

The attacker behind the Tornado Cash DAO exploit conducts two transactions, one of 100 ETH and the other comprising 38,302.57 TORN, following the governance takeover.

The attacker who exploited mixing service Tornado Cash’s DAO has conducted a series of transactions, the 1st since the governance takeover last weekend.

Per EtherScan, two transactions were conducted approximately an hour and a half before press time. 1 transaction of 100 Ethereum (ETH) was sent to the Tornado Cash Router, which is used in the service’s funds-obfuscating process. The other transaction comprised 38,302.57 TORN, which is the governance crypto token for the DAO. 

As previously informed by The Block, the exploiter took over the DAO following the passage of a malicious governance proposition this weekend. The pseudonymous security researcher Samczsun had informed that the exploit provided the attacker governance control but that most funds held within the Tornado Cash are shielded from theft.

Tornado Cash was sanctioned by the United States Government a year ago for its use by cybercriminals, including North Korea’s Lazarus group. Over the last few years, international law enforcement officials have targeted mixing services like Tornado Cash.
