The source also confirmed that the vulnerability is related to the NFT Marketplace Magic Eden platform and the Phantom Wallet, but there is no proof.

The official Magic Eden Twitter page acknowledges Solana is experiencing security issues across the ecosystem and advises users to deauthorize the Phantom wallet to protect themselves, indirectly acknowledging Phantom as a faulty platform.

Meanwhile, Phantom is working with other projects in Solana to find vulnerabilities and claims to not believe its wallet product is the platform that is having issues.

ā€œAt this time, the team does not believe this is a Phantom-specific issue. As soon as we gather more information, we will release an update.ā€

After the above information appeared, the SOL price continuously dropped sharply by nearly 8% to $37 before recovering.
