Jimbos Protocol, an Arbitrum-based protocol, has sought assistance from security researchers and on-chain analysts following a hack. The protocol was targeted by an exploiter who used a loophole in the code to carry out a flash loan. The hack resulted in the loss of funds worth some ETH 4,048, or about $7.5 million, which were later bridged to Ethereum.

PeckShield, a blockchain security company, raised the alarm after discovering the stolen funds had been transferred to Ethereum. The protocol has since cooperated with security experts, bridges, and exchanges to identify leads on the attacker.

The protocol has extended an offer to the suspected hacker, offering to reach a mutually satisfactory understanding. The offer includes a carrot and a stick. Jimbos Protocol has promised not to pursue the attacker if they return 90% of the stolen funds, but if they don’t, the protocol will not stop until the attacker is behind bars.
