BlockThreat - Week 11, 2022
Hubspot | Unchained | Deus DAO | Hundred Finance | Agave | Discord
Not the best week in blockchain security. More than $16M were stolen this week across DeFi projects on Ethereum, Fantom, Gnosis, and BSC chains. Price oracle manipulation, reentrancy, unsafe math, and other vulnerabilities in these hacks are nothing new making these losses unnecessary. Hubspot and Unchained PII compromises will likely result in another spike of spear phishing attacks targeting cryptocurrency users.
Scammers are also having a feast compromising more than a dozen NFT Discord channels and spamming them with fake airdrops while coming up with ever more elaborate schemes such as using spoofed transaction event logs. Romance scam artists have also picked up their pace with fake iOS crypto apps installed through Apple TestFlight and TF Signature vectors.
Be careful out there!
