Bored Ape Yacht Club (BAYC) Official Discord Was Hacked, NFT Was Stolen

Bored Ape’s Official Discord was Hacked

The official channel of the Bored Ape Yacht Club (BAYC) on Discord was hit by a malicious tool that intended to trick users into minting fake non-fungible tokens (NFTs) from the popular Bored Ape collection, the company said in a tweet on Friday.

Security researchers said a ticket tool that verifies users and pushes channel-wide notifications was compromised. Clicking on the malicious links that enticed users to mint a limited edition NFT would lead to an illicit script that could steal a user’s NFTs and other wallet information, researchers said.

Several other NFT-centric Discord servers, such as Doodles, Shamanzs, and Nyoki, that use the same tool saw similar phishing messages, pseudonymous blockchain research ‘zachxbt’ pointed out.

BAYC’s Discord channel is closed to new members at the time of writing.

Funds obtained from the phishing attack have reportedly been sent to a wallet address that has since been labeled fraudulent.

DAPE NFT founder “Serpent” said on Twitter that the hackers had targeted the Ticket Tool Discord bot and advised all users to remove it from their servers.
