Several MEV Bots were exploited by Sandwich the Ripper. The backrun txs, which are supposed to do the reverse swap and take profits, were reverted by possibly a rogue validator. The attack focuses on 8 sandwich bundles with transactions replaced with the exploiter. The exploiter created a token pair which was used to trigger the attacks. The funding source for token pair came from Ku Coin.

This attack is well-planned as the exploiter became a validator 18 days ago. The initial funds for the setup were sourced from Aztec.

Interestingly, since a validator is randomly chosen, is this just pure luck that the rogue validator was awaiting for this opportunity or it is something more sinister to send a message to MEV Bots as a whole?
