OpenSea Discord Server Hacked, Promoting Youtube NFT Scam
OpenSea, the leading NFT marketplace, confirmed today that it is looking into a potential vulnerability in its Discord server.
The popular marketplace for non-fungible token (NFT) projects, OpenSea, has reportedly been hacked, with attackers promoting a scam within OpenSea's Discord server.
"We are currently investigating a potential vulnerability in our Discord, please do not click on any links in the Discord," tweeted OpenSea on Friday.
Members of the server's dedicated channel for reporting frauds also uploaded screenshots of this particular scam. "YouTube is officially partnering with [OpenSea] to bring their community into the NFT space." says an OpenSea bot in the screenshot.
PeckShield, a security organization, also commented on the problem, claiming that OpenSea's Discord service had been used to advertise a fake NFT mint.
Hackers posted a notice regarding an NFT mint pass issued in cooperation with YouTube, according to screenshots obtained by another Twitter user.
The link in the announcements channel has been detected as a phishing site by PeckShield. However, It is still unclear whether any users were harmed as a result of the attack.
