According to “on-chain detective” ZachXBT, the attacker stole roughly $238,000 in assets from Balancer end users who had been unfortunate sufficient to entry the protocol’s consumer interface for the duration of the assault.
The price tag of Balancer’s BAL token not only had no damaging reactions, but even improved somewhat immediately after the details that the frontend had been attacked.

This is the 2nd assault towards Balancer in just a month. In late August, just days immediately after finding a significant vulnerability, Balancer had much more than $two million in assets stolen by an unknown hacker.
