Fantom/Polygon RPC hijack

Share:

There currently is an attack happening on an RPC that is used on the Fantom and Polygon network. The domain of one commonly used RPC seems to be hijacked.

RPCs are basically your communication interface to the blockchain. You have to configure one in order to use your wallet e.g. Metamask.

If you configured one of the hijacked RPCs, instead of forwarding your transactions to the network, you get a failed transaction currently. The error message on the transaction asks you to go to a website and enter your seed phrase to fix this error. This obviously is a scam.

DO NOT ENTER YOUR SEEDPHRASE ANYWHERE.

More info from this twitter user. You can either use another RPC or wait until the issue is fixed.
