Influencer Zeneca Become The Latest Victim Of Hackers

Non-fungible token (NFT) influencer Zeneca is the latest targets of hacking attempts against the NFT community.

Influencers become targets of hackers

Zeneca’s social media accounts were compromised on July 19 and linked to a fake airdrop for the influencer’s “Zen Academy Founders Pass,” tricking users into connecting their wallets.

“Hey everyone wanted to do something special for the community so here I go! I would like to announce the official release of the Zen Academy Founders Pass airdrop. There will be 333 of these passes to start off. The lucky few that manage to get one.”

 Zeneca’s compromised Twitter account had posted

Soon after the tweet was sent, Twitter’s head of consumer product marketing Justin Tayler confirmed that the account had been hacked and locked it down.

Zeneca, who has since gotten access to his account back, claims he has no idea of how the hack took place. In a Twitter thread, he said he had two-factor authentication (2FA) enabled using Google Authenticator, and even speculated that this could be an inside job.

The hack came shortly after the Bored Ape Yacht Club creator Yuga Labs warned the NFT community in a Monday tweet about “a persistent threat group that targets the NFT community.”
