Velodrome and Aerodrome, decentralized exchanges probably built by the same team, have been attacked by hackers taking over website front-ends.
Both Velodrome and Aerodrome shared a post confirming the incident and urging users to avoid interacting with front-ends. In the meantime, they assured users that all the funds are safe and contracts are unaffected.
The incident seems to be a DNS attack, in which the attacker has taken over the domains, and now it is leading to a phishing link to drain users’ assets.
Velodrome is one of the largest decentralized exchanges (DEX) on Optimism, whereas Aerodrome is deployed on Coinbase’s Layer 2 network Base.
While the attack does not disclose much financial details, on-chain analyst ZachXBT pointed out two addresses and found that currently approximately $40k had been stolen.
