The same staker can restake in a different set of AVS. Accordingly, if a set of stakers matches in different AVS, this leads to the fact that the profit from corruption in this group of stakers is summed up as the profit from corruption of each AVS, while the total amount of stake that validators risk remains the same. This makes the system cryptoeconomically in-secure. Even in the more general case, when the set of stakers in different AVS is only partially the same, there is a possible risk of cascading failure, where an attack on one AVS can lead to slashing of a group of validators, which reduces the security of other AVS in which this group of stakers were also validators and makes the attack possible on them.
