It appears that the Solana ecosystem has been impacted by crypto’s latest exploit, with users reporting that their funds have been drained from Phantom, Slope, and TrustWallet, which are all internet-connected “hot” wallets.
Blockchain auditors OtterSec report that over 8,000 wallets have been compromised so far. There were several Solana addresses linked to the attack and unsuspecting users were duped into sending SOL, SPL and other Solana-based tokens to those wallets.
Throughout Tuesday evening, it remained unclear exactly what caused Tuesday evening’s attack, though mobile wallet users appear to have been most affected. A supply chain attack may have compromised a trusted third-party service by enabling the attacker to initiate and approve transactions on behalf of users.
