Compromised Oracles refer to instances where data or information provided by external oracles within a blockchain network has been tampered with or manipulated by malicious actors. Oracles are trusted sources of off-chain data used to inform smart contracts and decentralized applications. When an oracle is compromised, it can provide inaccurate or malicious data, potentially leading to incorrect smart contract executions or undesirable outcomes within the Web3 ecosystem. Ensuring the security and reliability of oracles is crucial for maintaining the trust and functionality of decentralized systems.
