Reviewer wins $40,000 for identifying a vulnerability in Uniswap

Uniswap’s recently launched bug bounty program revealed a fixed vulnerability in the protocol’s universal router smart contract.

The automated market maker released two new smart contracts on its platform in November 2022. Permit2, which allows token permissions to be shared and managed between different applications. While the universal router unifies the exchange of ERC-20 and non-fungible (NFT) tokens into a single transaction router.

Uniswap also announced a lucrative bug bounty program to identify potential vulnerabilities in its smart contracts in late 2022. It has sought to ensure the security and efficiency of its protocol.

Smart contract security and audit firm Dedaub has announced it has received a bug bounty after discovering a vulnerability in the Universal Router’s smart contract that would have allowed a reentry attack to drain user funds during the transaction.
