Hacker hits Discord social network of the largest NFT-marketplace OpenSea
The company reports that the incident is under investigation and urges users to avoid clicking on any links on the server.
According to PeckShield, hackers broke into the server of OpenSea’s NFT marketplace in Discord. New NFTs in collaboration with YouTube have been announced on the popular social network's server. Users were invited to navigate to a website with a domain containing the video-hosting name, but it was not the official portal. PecShield identified the link as a phishing scam.
A message from the attackers was posted in the announcement thread. Now it is hidden from users. So far, there is no information about whether there are victims and how much damage has been done.
In March, the NFT-project Rare Bears suffered a similar hacker attack. The attacker posted a phishing link on the project's Discord channel, allowing him to steal 179 non-fungible tokens from various collections. Most of the stolen NFTs were sold, and the hacker managed to get 286 ETH, which is almost $800 thousand.
