Many popular blockchain platforms are supporting smart contracts for building decentralized applications. However, the vulnerabilities within smart contracts have led to serious financial loss to their end users. For the EOSIO blockchain platform, effective vulnerability detectors are still limited. Furthermore, existing vulnerability detection tools can only support one blockchain platform. In this work, we present WANA, a cross-platform smart contract vulnerability detection tool based on the

Furthermore, WANA proposes a set of test oracles to detect the vulnerabilities in EOSIO and Ethereum smart contracts based on WebAssembly bytecode analysis. Our experimental analysis shows that WANA can effectively detect vulnerabilities in both EOSIO and Ethereum smart contracts with high efficiency.
