Executive Vote: Mitigating Flash Loan Risk


The Governance Facilitator and the Smart Contracts Domain Team have placed an Executive Vote into the voting system which will enable the community to approve the following alterations to the protocol.

These changes have been created as an urgent response to the increased risk from flash loans, which are summarized in this forum thread.

Increase the GSM Pause Delay

As per this forum thread, the GSM Pause Delay will be increased from 12 hours to 72 hours if this proposal passes. This change is being proposed in order to allow governance sufficient time to react to a governance attack on the Maker Protocol.

Deauthorize the Oracle Freeze Module

As per this forum thread, the Oracle Freeze Module (also known as OsmMom) will be deauthorized if this proposal passes. This change is being proposed in order to prevent the freezing of the Oracle price feed by an attacker using flash loans. This change will also prevent Maker Governance from freezing the oracle price feed without waiting for the GSM Pause Delay of 72 hours.

Deauthorize the Liquidations Circuit Breaker

As per this forum thread, the Liquidations Circuit Breaker (also known as the and FlipperMom) will be deauthorized if this proposal passes. This change is being proposed in order to prevent the freezing or unfreezing of vault liquidations by an attacker using flash loans. This change will also prevent Maker Governance from freezing or unfreezing liquidations without waiting for the GSM Pause Delay of 72 hours.

Summary

Therefore, if this Executive proposal passes the following will occur:

  • The GSM Pause Delay will be increased from 12 hours to 72 hours.
  • The Oracle Freeze Module will be deauthorized.
  • The Liquidations Circuit Breaker will be deauthorized.
