  • The Decentralised staking platform, Convex Finance, has set up new website addresses as they witnessed an attack on the previous one. 
  • Convex Finance then asked the users to review approvals while the team analyzed a possible front-end issue.
  • The new URLs will be used to interact with the site while the team is investigating.

Convex Finance, the Decentralised staking platform, has established new website addresses (URLs) following the previous address that was involved in an attack that led the users to a malicious website. 

The developers highlighted through a Tweet that the issue was taken care of and is being investigated. Convex Finance is basically a quite popular protocol that facilitates the users to earn yields from Curve Finance, the stablecoin swap service. 

The Domain Name Service (DNS) translates the names of websites that the users type at the internet’s native numeric address coding. And by the process interception, it is possible to redirect the users to alternative websites that may have malicious intentions. 

An issue regarding a potential exploit was marked out on Twitter by alexintosh(dot)eth with approvals for contracts apparently spoofing the wallet addresses and deceiving the users to approve the false wallet actions. 

And following this, Convex Finance asked the users to review approvals while the team analyzed a possible front-end issue.

The developers signified that approximately five wallets were marked up by Convex to be affected by the exploit. Those funds that were on verified contracts on Convex Finance were not affected. 

Data highlights that a wallet address was marked as Convex Phisher Deposits on Etherscan, which seemingly obtained little amounts of digital assets from the affected users.

Crypto wallets basically work on token approvals, or permissions given to Decentralised Apps or DApps, by the users to keep track of their tokens in their crypto wallets. 

The developers have established Convexfinance(dot)fi and frax(dot)convexfinance(dot)fi as alternatives for the folks. According to them, users are encouraged to utilize these URLs to interact with the site while the investigation into the DNS attack is being carried out.
