Hack3d: The Web3 Security Quarterly Report - Q1 2024
  • A total of $502,522,934 was lost across 223 onchain security incidents in Q1 2024.

  • January was the most costly month of the quarter, with $193,132,537 lost in 78 onchain security incidents.
  • Private key compromises were once again the most costly attack vector, with $239,037,879 lost in just 26 incidents. This again represents nearly half of all financial losses, though key compromises accounted for just 11.7% of all security incidents.

  • $77,970,073 of value was ultimately returned, with the majority of this figure coming from the Munchables incident.
  • Hack3d investigates the ongoing prevalence of private key compromises, as well as Solidity rounding error exploits, the unprecedented inflows to the recently-approved Bitcoin ETFs, major financial institutions’ forays into onchain finance, and the effects of Ethereum’s successful Dencun upgrade on scaling L2s.
