8 月 3 日,Solana 网络遭遇了价值数百万美元的黑客攻击,原因未知。该攻击导致Solana的网络的原生代币SOL在过去 24 小时内下跌3.76% ,跌至 38 美元,有超过 8000 个钱包受到影响。

Solana的官方Twitter账户公布消息说,大约有7767个钱包受到攻击的影响,包括由第三方Phantom和Slope运营的钱包。该公司没有解释攻击的原因,但指出没有证据表明硬件钱包(没有连接到互联网的钱包)受到了影响。黑客已经能够窃取Solana自己铸造的加密货币(SOL)和一些与Solana区块链兼容的加密货币,如稳定币USD Coin(USDC)。

攻击的潜在因素?一些用户怀疑此次黑客攻击可能与基于Solana的NFT交易市场 Magic Eden 上的交易有关,但该猜测目前尚未得到证实。Magic Eden 方面则未予以置评。康奈尔教授、AVA Labs Ep的创始人Emin Gün Sirer认为,此次Solana的攻击是“供应链攻击”,意味着攻击者获得私钥的访问权限而入侵JavaScript库(JS Library)窃取用户的私钥。

当有人通过直接访问系统或是通过外部合作的伙伴或供应商渗透到系统时,便会发生供应链攻击(Supply Chain Attack;也称价值链攻击、第三方攻击或是后门邪路),一种通过各种手段非法访问企业系统。供应链的攻击很难追踪,通常通过传播病毒或是其他恶意软件来达成目的。整体而言,供应链攻击包括软件、硬件和固件攻击:

  1. 软件供应链攻击:通过一个受损的应用/软件在整个供应链上传播恶意软件,通过针对应用的源代码,将恶意程序嵌入至受信任的应用或是软件系统内。通常,在软件或是应用更新时最常见。
  2. 硬件供应链攻击:依赖于物理设备盗取信息,例如USB键盘记录器,通过记录击键的顺序来确定特定账户的密码,网络犯罪分子则通过如此访问公司的敏感信息、客户记录和付款信息。因此,攻击目标常为一个能够贯穿整个供应链的设备。
  3. 固体供应链攻击:通过恶意软件插入电脑的引导代码对系统展开攻击,电脑一旦开启便会危及整个系统,往往无法检测。
