For more details about it please refer to :
8 notable security incidents have occurred in the past week. Seven of them were attacks on smart contracts and social media and one was suspected to be a rug-pull.
A Reminder for Project Teams: Always test thoroughly. Do smart contract audits before deploying smart contracts on-chain.
A Reminder for Crypto Users: Be cautious about suspicious links, emails, websites, and projects launched by teams without established reputations. Particularly we suggest crypto investors should avoid investing in projects whose admins(owners) obtained their gases from Tornado Cash. If projects of this kind turn out to be rug-pulls, it is hard to take back/recover assets from them.
It is important for everyone in the crypto community to gain understanding and practice sufficient levels of cybersecurity.
