PeckShield cybersecurity experts discovered that from July to November, hackers carried out 27 attacks on decentralized applications (DApps) in the EOS ecosystem. Losses from attacks are estimated at 400,000 EOS coins, which is equivalent to $ 760,000 at the time of writing. This is the Chinese edition of Blockchain Truth.

According to the PeckShield report, in one month, hackers took over 170,503 EOS, attacking eight DApps: EOSBet, EOSCast, FFgame, EOSDice, EOSWin, MyEosVegas, LuckyGo and EOSLelego. Experts point out that while vulnerabilities are rooted in DApps, these attacks are a threat to the security of an EOS ecosystem.

They also concluded that such attacks began to take place more often, and their success rates are only improving.

According to PeckShield, the EOS network has 500,000 accounts, 200,000 of which are inactive. The report also states that 120,000 accounts are collectively managed.
