In late October two of the most popular Telegram trading bots were exploited, leading to a total loss of $1.1 million. The two exploits happened within a week of each other starting with the Maestro incident on 24 October, followed by the Unibot incident on 31 October.
On 7 October, 2023 SocialFi project Stars Arena was exploited via a reentrancy vulnerability for 266,103 AVAX, approximately $2.88 million. The incident was the largest reentrancy exploit to occur on the Avalanche chain in 2023. Stars Arena was also exploited two days prior on 5 October for roughly $2k by the same exploiter. This earlier incident likely drew increased scrutiny over the Stars Arena contract.
