Bored Ape, Otherside Discords Hacked Once More

Over 145 Ethereum ($256,000) worth of tokens were allegedly stolen by the attackers. It appears that a community manager's account was hacked, giving the attackers access to the servers' admin accounts.

They then posted a link to a phishing site where users were invited to link their wallets in order to gain access to a "exclusive gift." The BAYC Discord has been disabled, and admins on the Otherside server are advising members to turn off direct communications.

This isn't the first time BAYC has hacked Discord this year. In the last three months, the project has been the target of a series of phishing assaults, which resulted in the theft of many NFTs.

32 NFTs were stolen, according to data from blockchain security firm PeckShield, including one BAYC token, two Mutant Apes, five Otherdeeds, and one Bored Ape Kennel Club token.

The hack appears to be one of the most destructive in recent memory. In previous attacks this year, one to two tokens were stolen per attack.

Yuga Labs has yet to make a public statement on the subject. BAYC's floor price has likewise declined by 2.9 per cent in the last 24 hours.

The project has been the target of various phishing and hacking efforts since its beginning, owing to its prominence as the most important NFT collection.

In April, the project's social media sites were hacked twice. Seth Green, an actor and producer, had his Bored Ape stolen recently.

It's unknown whether Yuga, the owner of Bored Ape, has implemented any security steps so far. With control of the most valuable collections, the business is by far the most powerful participant in the NFT field.
