ChainSwap, a cross-chain bridge that enables users to trade crypto assets of different chains, revealed a critical vulnerability in its protocol due to a recent attack. The attack happened on July 10 and affected 14 projects that had used ChainSwap to launch Ethereum tokens on Binance Smart Chain.
As the research of Wilder World developers shows the attacker took over BSC-contracts through a loophole in ChainSwap protocol and minted tokens directly to their address, to sell them later on PancakeSwap. WILD devs prompted users to refrain from trading on Binance Chain and PancakeSwap.
The list of affected tokens includes Wilder Worlds (token symbol: WILD), Antimatter (MATTER), Option Room (ROOM), Umbrella Network (UMB), Blank, Nord Finance (NORD), Razor Network (RAZOR), Peri, Unido (UDO), Oro, Vortex (VTX), Corra (CORA), ROCKS, Dafi, and Unifarm (UFARM). ChainSwap announced to its users it has frozen its bridge between Ethereum and Binance Smart Chain, and promised that all ASAP holders will be compensated. Last week ChainSwap suffered another attack which caused it to lose $800,000
