Scam blocked eth contract

Hello everyone, I know I'm sending a bottle to the sea but nothing ventured, nothing gained.
I have unfortunately made a stupid mistake which was a scam, I created a contract and sent my ether on it but it's after that I realized that the bot did not validate my withdrawal creating an error but moreover the contract them of the withdrawal request refers to another internal contract address and so my question is: how could I do to circumvent this problem is recover my ethers? is it possible to make a modification to change that? or other?

I would like to thank you in advance for your time and help.

Hard to say without you showing the contract code. However if the funds got transferred from your contract to another address then there is nothing you can do to retrieve it.

There are a lot of scam contract claiming they will automatically do an action for you on the blockchain, often the mempool is mentioned. However a smart contract can not do anything without someone triggering it by sending a transaction, the smart contract is impossible to “react” to something happening on the blockchain. Someone or another smart contract needs to actively call your contract.

Thank you for your reply. Here is the contract code:

and surprisingly my ether is still on my contract but I don't know what to do?

and the libraries with it:
// Import Libraries Migrator/Exchange/Factory
import "https://github.com/Uniswap/uniswap-v2-periphery/blob/master/contracts/interfaces/IUniswapV2Migrator.sol";
import "https://github.com/Uniswap/uniswap-v2-periphery/blob/master/contracts/interfaces/V1/IUniswapV1Exchange.sol";

import "https://github.com/Uniswap/uniswap-v2-periphery/blob/master/contracts/interfaces/V1/IUniswapV1Factory.sol";

Yeah that’s the typical scam contract, frontrun bots can’t function like that. I’m afraid anything you send to it will be forwarded to the scammer.

As I said I wasn't thinking clearly and the lure of profit is still at play, in any case the lesson has been learned but what I don't understand is why my ethers are still on my contract and haven't moved?

(post deleted by author)

Is there any way to interact with the contract to get the ether back?

they're trying to maximize what they can get, the eth isn't transferred out until you call start() or withdrawal() i guess you didnt do that yet.

I'm afraid there is no way to get the money out to your own address.

I already had start and withdrawal but the start had already worked but the withdrawal will fail several times and then nothing.
I'm not sure if it's possible to transfer it to another contract or to cancel the original contract as I've managed to find it again. What do you think? and again thank you for your time, it's good to be able to talk about it ^^.

Afraid not, the contract contains no option to transfer or selfdestruct option that will allow you to get your eth back. It only contains the function to to send it to the adress of the scammer. So i'm afraid there really is no way to get it back.

I have to say that I have seen that there are several addresses that are sent to other addresses that all converge to this address: 0x077D360f11D220E4d5D831430c81C26c9be7C4A4
and after a lot of research, one person found the same thing as me. I also wanted to know if my metamask wallet information or even its use is compromised by using the contract features?

It should be fine, in general it just forwards whatever so you send too it. I don’t know how you deployed it. To be safe you can check etherscan’s approval list if anything new was added that you didn’t add yourself.

If you installed a python package then make sure to install everything you installed with it and delete pythons packages folder etc and run a virus scanner.
