After obtaining “reliable information” that an insider from Twitter would assist in breaching the accounts’ security, Gordon Goner, a completely anonymous co-founder of Yuga Labs, gave notice about a possible forthcoming attack on their social media pages under the Yuga Labs umbrella. Owners of NFTs from the Bored Ape Yacht Club (BAYC) should use extreme caution at this time. The parent firm of BAYC, Yuga Labs, is concerned about an imminent attack on its social media accounts.
Yuga Labs’ Founder Warns Users About A Possible Attack
Gordon Goner recently sent a warning to his followers about the impending attack. The co-founder also claimed that there is a Twitter insider involved, citing “reliable evidence.” They have delivered millions of dollars of BAYC NFTs over the last year and a half, which have always been on the hackers’ radar. In the past, the platform’s other social networks, such as Discord channels, have been hacked.
Hackers broke into BAYC and OtherSide Discord communities earlier this month. During the phishing attempt, they allegedly took over 145 ETH. The attacker hijacked Boris Vagner, Yuga Labs’ community and social manager’s Discord account, according to blockchain detective OKHotshot. They claimed last week that they had fixed the algorithm, allowing hackers to construct an endless number of Bored Ape NFTs. In fact, by addressing this vulnerability, the team was able to completely remove this code fragment. Attacks on NFT markets have grown increasingly regular, particularly on well-known projects like Bored Ape and Mutant Ape. OpenSea, one of the largest NFT markets, has also had problems coping with similar assaults.
Hopefully, NFT purchasers and minters will be watchful and avoid falling for offers that appear to be too good to be true.
