The Velodrome protocol has released a warning to its users about a potential vulnerability and a breach in their software interface. The company has strongly advised its clients to refrain from any actions with Velodrome until further notice.

At this moment, our user interface is compromised. We ask you to refrain from interacting with Velodrome at this time. The team is conducting an investigation and will provide additional information here as soon as it becomes available,Velodrome (@VelodromeFi) on November 29, 2023.

The details of the incident have not been disclosed by the Velodrome DeFi project team. Nonetheless, according to independent crypto analyst ZachXBT, it is suspected that the attack is related to an attempt to steal the protocol's assets, which are believed to be redirected to addresses beginning with 0x02BA1 and 0xf64fC.

Analytical company L2beat has noted that second-layer solutions like Optimism for the Ethereum blockchain are becoming more popular compared to the main network. In particular, there has been a constant increase in the total volume of transactions in the sidechain since September of the previous year.
