Number of BSC DeFi Projects Under a DNS Hijack Attack, CZ Binance Warns

A number of DeFi-related projects on the Binance Smart Chain including PancakeSwap and Cream Finance are under a DNS hijack attack, CZ warns.

PancakeSwap, the largest and most popular decentralized cryptocurrency exchange and automated market maker (AMM) on Binance Smart Chain, might have had its DNS hijacked. Cream Finance is also under attack.

  • In a tweet shared minutes ago, PancakeSwap’s official account revealed that the platform might have had its DNS (Domain Name System) hijacked.

Until we are able to confirm this is not the case, do not use the site. We will confirm ASAP. In the meantime, better safe than sorry. – The team said.

  • No further details were revealed as of the time of this writing and so far, the price for the platform’s native token CAKE doesn’t seem to have reacted.
  • Just about an hour ago, another popular DeFi-related project, Cream Finance, shared similar news.

  • Apparently, a malicious third party is sending requests for seed phrases.
  • CZ, Binance’s CEO, has also warned of the issue.

A number of DeFi projects are under DNS hijack attack. Pancake, Cream, etc. Please be VERY VERY careful and not use them until they recover the situation… – he said.

  • As the DeFi space continues to boom, it’s important to remember that there are bad actors in the space trying to exploit protocols into scamming people out of their money.
  • With this said, you should never reveal your seed phrase to anyone. In addition, employing appropriate security measures will help safeguard your cryptocurrencies.
