The slope wallet behind the Solana (SOL) hack.

the purse Fauna has recently been identified as a source hockey having endangered nearly 8000 purse of Solana (SOL).

sloppy job

The Solana developers discovered that the addresses involved with the hockey have one thing in common: interaction with the purse slope

“It appears that the affected addresses were created, imported or used at some point through the Slope mobile wallet”can we read Solana’s twitter account.

This is what the description of the Slope app on the Google Store says:

“Fan wallet allows you to import an ethereum wallet. ETH can be stored there or ETH can be cloned on Solana to benefit from instant transactions on ETH at 1000 times lower cost! »

There is a slope that wallet not kept (but not open source) specific to the Solana ecosystem. “ Unreserved it means that their users have their private keys.

However, the purse offers services related to DeFi, NFTs and ETH cross chain. So many potential loopholes since these gas works may need to be imported temporarily seed sentences on their servers.

Here’s what @0xfoobar suggests:

“Correction – Fana Wallet did not send seed phrases to external partners, but may have saved them to its own servers. […] Wait for a notification from the team to confirm. »

for now, “Details of exactly how this happened are still being investigated” Solana pointed out. The firm still suspects that the private keys would have been transmitted “inadvertently to a monitoring app”…

This type of application usually measures the performance of smartphone applications to improve performance. We don’t know which one it is yet. To be continued in the next episode.

In other words, we have two versions. @0xfoobar points out that a inside job at Fana, although Solana’s team is leaning towards disrupting the purse through a monitoring app.

On the other hand, it is confirmed that the purse synchronized with Fana and having been in danger indeed are Phantom and Trust.

According to Dune Analytics, the hockey completed and involves 41,880 SOL. That’s $1.6 million, not $8 million as we reported yesterday.

Chris Terry, Vice President of SmartFi said:

“We’ve said ‘You’re not the key, not your coins’, but this new hack shows the risk of tying up your money. purse to deFi platforms. We recommend not using one purse for everything. Don’t be lazy. Create a wallet for each specific task so you don’t risk losing everything in the event of a bug. »
