Hacker exploits $361,000 worth of NFTs from Yuga Labs Discord, is it really a safe platform?
Yuga Labs’ Discord servers were recently exploited resulting in a 200 ETH, around $361,000 worth of NFT loss. Yuga Labs confirmed this exploit 11 hours later by saying it recovered the hacked account but failed to recover the NFTs. With so many exploits on Discord servers, is it really the best platform to form communities for NFT projects?
For the past few weeks, phishing attacks have become quite frequent on Discord servers. Just recently, the Solana WOS Discord server was hacked which caused a huge loss to the members. Furthermore Seth Green was also a victim of a phishing attack that sabotaged his upcoming NFT-based animated show.
Yuga Labs’ Discord servers members also couldn’t escape this wave of phishing attacks.
Yuga Labs Discord suffers from a 200 ETH NFT exploit
On Saturday, someone hacked into the project’s Community Manager, Boris Vagner’s Discord account, which gave them access to the private Discord servers for BAYC, MAYC, and Otherside. Since Vagner was a manager, no one would really suspect if he shared a link in the chats, and that’s exactly what happened.
