CertiK Identifies Critical Vulnerability in Solana's Saga Phone
Recently, CertiK alleged a 'critical vulnerability' in Solana's Saga phone, referring to it as a 'bootloader unlock' attack
This attack enables a malicious actor to install a hidden backdoor
However, Solana Labs' spokesperson promptly asserted that CertiK's claims were baseless
Solana Labs responded to CertiK's recent video by refuting the 'inaccurate' claims about a potential security vulnerability in the Saga phone
According to CertiK's report, this attack can compromise sensitive data, including cryptocurrency private keys
In response, Solana Labs clarified that unlocking the bootloader and installing custom firmware requires multiple steps, and it is only possible after the user unlocks the device with a passcode or fingerprint
The Solana Saga phone, released in April 2022, aimed to integrate crypto apps into tech hardware.
