A Socket protocol vulnerability affected 219 users and resulted in a net loss of roughly $3.3 million.

The official Socket account announced the successful retrieval of 1032 ETH, worth $2.3 million, and plans to release a recovery and distribution strategy for the affected users.

The protocol has extended its gratitude to various on-chain analytics accounts for their assistance in recovering the funds.

The exploit was orchestrated on January 16 when the attacker utilised a token approval from an Ethereum address ending in 97a5.
