EOS DApps Lose Almost $1 Million to Hackers Over the Last Five Months
Decentralized apps (DApps) based on the EOS blockchain have lost up to $1 million to hacks since July, Chinese crypto media Blockchain Truth reports Tuesday, Dec. 4.
The report cites data by PeckShield, a blockchain security company that monitors different ecosystems. According to the report, the DApps on EOS have seen 27 breaches from July to late November, losing up to 400,000 EOS, or 8 million yuan. As of press time, the amount hacked was worth $800,000 according to the EOS price chart on CoinMarketCap.
Nonetheless, Guo Yonggang, an expert cited by Blockchain Truth, believes that most of the attacks on EOS DApps correlate with their vulnerabilities rather than with a bug in EOS itself. Yonggang also tends to think that similar attacks will become more frequent, as hackers are intensively seeking exposures in applications.
