Solana co-founder Anatoly Yakovenko says that the hack that compromised over 8,000 SOL holders’ wallets may be due to issues with mobile platforms.
Early on Wednesday morning, blockchain security firm PeckShield reported that an attack on Solana wallets stemmed from a supply chain hack, which is when an outside party or provider with access to the victim’s data is compromised.
“The widespread hack on Solana wallets is likely due to the supply chain issue exploited to steal/uncover user private keys behind affected wallets. So far, the loss is estimated to be $8,000,000, excluding one illiquid sh**coin (only has 30 holds & maybe misvalued $570M)”
Near the same time, Solana’s Yakovenko speculated that the attack came from a vulnerability in Apple’s iOS.
