After spoofing an exploit, Convex Finance has launched two URLs.

In the latest spoofing attack, the Convex Finance decentralized staking platform's DNS (domain name server) was targeted.

 

  • As early as July 23, a Convex Finance smart contract address was detected by Alexintosh, an angel investor.
  • A DNS spoofing attack may have been carried out on Convex Finance's website by a hostile party.
  • Users were unwittingly agreeing to harmful contracts for specific website interactions when the staking platform's DNS was hijacked, it was confirmed following the incident
  • While the inquiry is ongoing, Convex has urged users to use two alternate domain names to access the site.
  • Five wallets were flagged by the platform as vulnerable to the attack. There was no impact on validated contracts' funds, according to the team, though.
  • The hacker used Tornado Cash, a currency mixer, to move the stolen money to a wallet marked as "Convex Phisher Deposits," which reveals a modest quantity of crypto from the victims.
  • As promised, a comprehensive post-mortem report will be released shortly by Convex Finance.
  • A DNS hijacking assault on Ribbon Finance, a decentralized structured products protocol, was also reported by MistTrack, a crypto tracking and compliance platform.
    It appears to be the same attacker as Convex, according to on-chain analysis.
