Solana Wallet Got Destroyed
Blockchain forensics firm Scam Sniffer has identified a significant security breach in the Solana network involving two malicious actors referred to as “sophisticated Solana wallet drainers.” One of them, known as Rainbow Drainer, executed a scheme during a fake NFT airdrop, stealing a total of $2.14 million from 2,189 users.
The phishing incident involved a deceptive NFT airdrop where victims unknowingly signed a malicious contract, leading to the theft of their assets. The pilfered amounts include $464,817 in BONK, $173,382 in ZERO, $165,932 in USDT, and $93,266 in USDC.
Node Drainer’s Christmas Phishing Campaign
In a separate but related incident, Scam Sniffer uncovered the operations of another drainer, the Node Drainer. This actor initiated its activities through a Christmas phishing campaign, managing to steal over $2 million from 1,762 users within a span of two weeks. Notably, Node Drainer converted stolen USDC to ETH via AllBridge, generating over $1 million in profit.
The identified Solana wallet drainers, Rainbow Drainer and Node Drainer, highlight an ongoing threat to users within the crypto space. Their deceptive tactics, including exploiting airdrop phishing sites and using simulated failure messages, underscore the importance of heightened user vigilance.
