It appears that the Solana ecosystem was hacked on Tuesday night. This wiped out Solana tokens (SOL) from a handful of hot wallets. As of today, the details regarding the hacker are not known. According to Blockchain auditor Otter Sec, the hack took place on Trust, Slope and Phantom wallets, wiping out close to 8000 accounts. Users pointed out that the hack occurred on Phantom wallets. However, the company denied this claim and stated “We are working closely alongside other teams to get the bottom of a vulnerability in the Solana environment.” The team stated via Twitter that they don’t believe this is a Phantom-specific problem.
Slope stated that they are working with Solana Labs to resolve this issue and find the root cause via a tweet.
Reports suggest that the hack may have been caused by the disclosure of private keys via a browser extension, which could have led to a compromise.
Otter Sec posted images to Twitter showing hot wallets being compromised. Hot wallets are Crypto wallets that are connected to the internet at any time. These are not exchange wallets. Users were able to initiate and sign transfers for the attacker, suggesting a private key compromise.
Solana currently ranks 9th in Crypto assets with a market cap of $ 13 billion. According to Coinmarket Cap, Solana’s value has fallen by 3.85% in 24 hours.
