Bored Ape Yacht Club, Otherside NFTs stolen in Discord server hack

Early in the morning of June 4, 2022 local time, the Discord account of Boris Vagner , community manager of Yuga Labs, the developer of BAYC, was hacked. The hacked Vagner's Discord account posted the URL to the phishing site on BAYC's Discord server and Otherside Metaverse's Discord server managed by Yuga Labs, and multiple people who clicked this link were damaged. It is reported that it is.

If you click the link, all Ethereum and NFTs held in the cryptocurrency wallet linked to your user account may be stolen. Analyst OK Hotshot, who reported this issue, tweeted that 145 ETH (about 35 million yen) was already stolen.

According to blockchain cybersecurity firm PeckShield, 32 NFTs have been stolen via this phishing site, and the list is below.

In response, BAYC's official Twitter account said, 'Our Discord server was compromised today. The team responded quickly to the compromise, but it seems that about 200 ETH worth of NFTs were affected. We are still investigating, but if you are affected, please contact [email protected]. '

It's unclear how Vagner's Discord account, which was the source of the turmoil, was compromised and whether two-step verification was enabled. Technology media Bleeping Computer is asking Yuga Labs for comment, but hasn't received a response at the time of writing.
