BlockThreat - Week 27, 2020

RavenCoin | Tendermint | Ledger | TrustWalletApp

Stand-alone blockchain vulnerabilities are rare but they still happen. Ravencoin was exploited with an inflation bug to mint 31M RVN while Tendermint patched up a DoS vulnerability. Another DeFi project was exploited to steal $900k. On the happier side of the week, our hero Harry hacked a phishing campaign C2 to save $5k worth of crypto for users who downloaded a fake wallet software.
