DeFi Recap-the Focus of Hacking 2022 Q2

How time flies! 2022 is over halfway. In this article, DeHacker and TrustFi, a community-driven incubator for crypto startups, will jointly review the hacker attack data in the second quarter of 2022.

In the second quarter of 2022, the total losses in Web 3 due to hacking attacks were approximately $718.34 million, a decrease of approximately 40% from the $1.2 billion in the first quarter, and 2.42 times the loss in the second quarter of 2021.

From January to June 2022, the total amount of losses due to attacks in the Web 3 field reached approximately $1.91287 billion. DeFi is still the most attacked project type, with about 79.2% of the attacks occurring in the DeFi field. The total loss amount is about 454.74 million US dollars, accounting for 63.3% of the total loss amount in Q2.

Two cross-chain bridge attacks continued to occur during the quarter, with cumulative losses of approximately $100 million. In the first quarter of 2022, the total losses from the four cross-chain bridge attacks amounted to US$950 million. This brings the amount of losses due to cross-link bridge attacks to US$1,050 million in the first half of 2022.

Approximately 45.8% of attacks this quarter exploited smart contract vulnerabilities, the vast majority of which could be found and fixed during the audit phase.

However, only half of the projects attacked were audited!

We recommend that all projects should seek out a professional auditing firm before going on the chain!
