Aurora is an Ethereum Virtual Machine created by the team at the NEAR Protocol, delivering a turn-key solution for developers to operate their apps on an Ethereum-compatible, high-throughput, scalable and future-safe platform, with low transaction costs for their users.

Aurora announced it had paid out a $6 million bounty to ethical security hacker pwning.eth, who discovered a critical vulnerability in the Aurora Engine. The exploit allegedly placed over $200 million worth of capital at risk. The sum was paid in collaboration with Immunefi, a leading platform for Web 3.0 bug bounties, with more than $145 million bounties available and over $45 million bounties paid out.

Critical flaw in the Aurora Engine that would have enabled the infinite minting of ETH in the Aurora Ethereum Virtual Machine to drain and siphon the corresponding nested ETH (nETH) pool on NEAR
