Solana: Exploit Appears to Be Software Related

Solana engineers are investigating an exploit that allowed hackers to steal more than $5.7 million in funds from more than 8,000 Solana wallets Tuesday. 

"This does not appear to be a bug with Solana core code, but in software used by several software wallets popular among users of the network," the network tweeted Wednesday morning.

Several users with Phantom, Trust Wallet, and Slope wallets were reportedly affected. There were four wallets involved in the hack, according to reports. Here are the wallets and how much they stole:

*Does not include the more than 1.8 billion Exist coins, which is valued at $570 million on the Solscan site, but is listed at 5 cents on some exchanges, as well as lacking the liquidity to swap.

Some Solana-based projects and the marketplace Magic Eden suggested users revoke permissions on their wallets to be safe, though later, developers on Twitter urged Solana users to send their funds to trusted exchanges or an offline wallet.
