BlockThreat - Week 11, 2021

TSD | CREAM | PancakeSwap | Nifty | Iron Finance | SIL Finance

This week we saw traditional appsec threats creep into the crypto world after a couple of DeFi projects lost control over their DNS infrastructure and NFTs getting stolen as a result of good ole’ account takeovers. On the blockchain layer we had a small scare where a block explorer reported a double spend on FileCoin only to conclude that it was just an exchange not using node API correctly. Last but not least check out news of the upcoming QuadrigaCX documentary in the Media section.
