Whitehat Kadabra from $SLAM Token team discovered a web content injection vulnerability that would have allowed a malicious user to inject any arbitrary text on PancakeSwap’s website. Kadabra reported this vulnerability to Immunefi on May 21, and we rated it as critical. PancakeSwap has paid the whitehat a bounty of $7,500 and patched the vulnerability. The vulnerability does not appear to have been exploited by any malicious users.

PancakeSwap uses Crowdin, a localization management platform. Localization describes the process of translating a site’s text into the various languages of users. However, the API key that was being used to create localizations was not a read-only API key, but rather had full write access to the whole system.
