THE PLATFORM FACED A BREACH THAT INVOLVED USERS WALLETS!
The NFT platform PREMINT was vulnerable on July 17. On July 17, early in the morning, hackers allegedly hacked PREMINT’s website, resulting in a loss of $375,000 for PREMINT.
According to reports, the hackers took both the non-fungible tokens (NFTs) and the remaining funds from the affected individuals’ wallets.
“The hackers modified a file on PREMINT’s website by an unknown third party which persuaded users to sign into a malicious wallet connection,” PREMINT wrote on Twitter about how the hackers obtained access to the systems.
The PREMINT team warned all its users and instructed them to revoke any permission to the wallet if they believed their wallet had been compromised and not to sign any transaction that reads “set approvals to all.”
The breach has been effectively closed, and PREMINT has updated its website as of this writing.
Users can now log back into the platform using their Twitter or Discord accounts instead of wallets, according to an update pinned to the website by PREMINT. This is secure and far more convenient, especially on mobile devices.
Furthermore, they tweeted:
Logging into PREMINT is secure. When you connect your wallet, you will receive a confirmation page for gas-free signing. In addition, you will never be charged for connecting to PREMINT, and we never request access to any transactions.
