Mango Markets, a cryptocurrency trading platform, has been the center of controversy recently when it was discovered that an exploiter had taken advantage of a security vulnerability to take control of user funds. The exploiter has now sought to keep the disputed funds, which were paid to him as a “bug bounty” for reporting the vulnerability.
The issue began when the exploiter was able to gain access to user funds on the Mango Markets platform. The exploiter then contacted Mango Markets and reported the vulnerability, offering to return the funds in exchange for a “bug bounty”. Mango Markets agreed and paid the exploiter a sum of money as a reward for his efforts.
However, Mango Markets later discovered that the exploiter had taken more funds than he reported, and that he was attempting to keep the disputed funds. Mango Markets has since filed a lawsuit against the exploiter, claiming that he should not be allowed to keep the funds.
The case has sparked a debate over whether or not the exploiter should be allowed to keep the funds. On one hand, some argue that the exploiter should be rewarded for his efforts in discovering and reporting the vulnerability. On the other hand, some argue that the exploiter should not be allowed to keep the funds, as he took advantage of a security vulnerability and attempted to keep the disputed funds.
At this point, it is unclear how the case will be resolved. However, it is clear that Mango Markets is taking a stand against exploitative behavior, and that the company is committed to protecting its users’ funds. It will be interesting to see how this case is resolved, and what the outcome will be for the exploiter.
