$200K Bug Bounty Payout

Dear Farmers,

Earlier this year Harvest joined the Armor Alliance Big Bug Bounty Challenge with Immunefi. The mission of this venture was to boost the bug bounty reward for the most critical vulnerability to $200,000.

Such a big bounty incentivizes super shadowy coders to stress test Harvest’s smart contracts while not causing any real harm to our platform.

This month, an uninitialized proxy implementation vulnerability has been found by a whitehat hacker, reported through Immunefi, and has already been fixed by the Harvest team.

This issue didn’t provide attackers with the opportunity to steal funds. They were able to harm, but not profit. Harvest decided to pay the highest bounty to set an example for our dedication to depositors’ security.


Harvest handled the payout of $100,000 in USDC with Armor.fi matching that amount in $ARMOR tokens.


Harvest is thankful for the hacker taking the white hat route and allowing us to strengthen the security of our platform.

Security remains the main priority of Harvest and welcomes other talented hackers to challenge our security measures in a white hat manner.
