Blowfish exposes new ‘aqua, vanish’ bit-flip drainers on Solana

 Web3 security company Blowfish recently detected a pair of sophisticated Solana (SOL) transaction drainers capable of executing elusive bit-flip attacks.

The firm’s Feb. 9 analysis details how these drainers — dubbed aqua and vanish — can alter a condition in on-chain data post-transaction signature by the user’s private key. 

These dangerous scripts lurking under the transactional radar are being peddled on the dark web, offering scammers a scam-as-a-service toolkit.

The Blowfish examination highlights the drainers’ adept use of the on-chain authority provided to decentralized apps (dapps), enabling them to switch from transaction facilitators to malicious account-draining entities.

The data acquisition and analysis firm reports that Solana saw a 71% decrease in TVL month-on-month from October to November, crashing to $366 million.
