According to @0xngmi, developer of the DefiLlama platform, only users who have interacted with some SushiSwap smart contracts in the last 2 weeks may be affected. The latter has also developed a website allowing you to check if your address or addresses are potentially at risk.
If one of your addresses was indeed in danger, we recommend that you withdraw the authorizations concerned as soon as possible. To do this, you can use Revoke or do it manually from some digital wallets that support this tool natively like Rabby Wallet.
According to Kevin Peng, analyst at The Block Research, only 190 Ethereum addresses approved the problematic smart contract. However, more than 200 addresses would be affected on layer 2 Arbitrum, and other addresses are also affected on other blockchains. If you want to manually check the contracts for each blockchain, you can find their respective address here.
The price of the SUSHI token found itself slightly impacted, with a drop of just over 5% over 24 hours.

The blockchain security and auditing firm BlockSec revealed that it successfully intercepted 100 ETH on block 17007839. Moreover, the first attacker, who therefore seems to be a “white hat”, would have already returned 90 of the 100 ETH.
At the time of writing these lines, neither SushiSwap nor its director Jared Gray gave further news regarding the flaw..
