Recovering from the exploit 
Curve Finance suffered a security breach on July 30 due to a programming bug that put around $100 million worth of cryptocurrency at risk. 

A number of stablepools (alETH/msETH/pETH) using Vyper 0.2.15 have been exploited as a result of a malfunctioning reentrancy lock. We are assessing the situation and will update the community as things develop.Other pools are safe.— Curve Finance (@CurveFinance) July 30, 2023

This forced CRV prices lower, and it was highly likely that Curve’s founder, Michael Egorov, who holds significant outstanding debts, would have been liquidated. He held several large positions; one of the most notable was his $70 million borrowing position on Aave and $12 million on Abracadabra.
