Solana Labs CEO Anatoly Yakovenko said that the blockchain hack affected hot wallets using the Apple iOS operating system. Including those provided by the Phantom and Slope services.
Most likely, the hacker used malware and attacked the iOS wallet libraries. He then extracted the private keys and was able to access the wallets and empty their contents.
That this path was chosen is indicated by the fact that many hot wallets remained inactive for a long time and did not contact applications (dapps). That is, the hacker did not act through phishing links.
According to official figures, 7767 wallets were hacked. Amid previous failures in block processing, this Solana hack, according to experts, may interfere with the further plans of developers.
