"The solution is to transfer assets into a wallet which has never exposed a private key to potentially vulnerable browser extensions," wrote DeFi auditor "foobar" on Twitter.

For less experienced users, transferring assets from an SOL wallet to a reliable central exchange would also be an approachable strategy, he noted.

At the time of writing, the root cause of the exploit was unknown and the Solana team had not issued an update on social media.

On-chain data showed that over $580 worth of user funds had been drained from private wallets so far with the list of victims exceeding 8,000.

Price Action: At press time, SOL was trading at $38.04, down 6.4% over 24 hours.
