In Poll ID: 211, “Freeze the community pool in case of a scam,” the fraudster wants to make community governance rules safer in the event of a hack.
If the hacker gets a majority of the votes, 25 million MIR tokens worth $64.2 million at the time of this writing will be sent to the address of the hacker.
As shown in the screenshot, Mirror’s proactive approach to warning the community has led to a big rise in the number of people voting “No.”
This shows that the funds are safe. According to WuBlockchain, the attacker tried to steal 25 million MIR tokens from the community fund pool with Proposal 185, which was disguised as a request for cooperation with Solana.
The poll set up by the attacker will be open to the public until Jan. 1. However, the Mirror team set up Poll 212 to warn the people who didn’t know:”Poll 211 sending 25,000,000 MIR to itself. VOTE NO to any poll sending community funds out.”
