Hackers are targeting the Discord Inc. group, which was discussing non-fungible tokens in an attempt to get users to click on malicious links.
Cryptocurrencies have been hit hard at one time, but not even close to NFTs, blockchain security companies Peck Shield Co., Ltd. “Some NFT discords have been jeopardized,” he warned. NFTs are assets built on blockchain technology to represent artwork, video games and other digital artifacts.
According to Vice’s articleTargeted NFT projects for hackers such as, Memeland, PROOF / Moonbirds, RTFKT, and Web3 infrastructure company CyberConnect. The report claims that they “compromise”, but that’s a big deal. In reality, it’s not as sexy as the sub-article, but the “compromise” was just a bot posting malicious links.
There are some suggestions and claims that the Discord NFT group has been hacked and hijacked, but that has not been confirmed. A person called Alien Frens on Twitter Claim On Tuesday, they were “hacked” with “many other people,” but there is no evidence that this happened. A bot that floods a Discord channel with fake links is not the same as a hack.
Among the victims is the popular game “Axie Affinity”. Given that $ 615 million was stolen from Ronin March, There is not much room to hack from “Axie”. In the worst case, the bot was hacked, but the so-called victim wasn’t actually hacked.
Vice said the co-founder of blockchain security company Zellic said: Because, just post an announcement like “Oh, somehow, somehow, somehow, please visit this link” and people will believe it because it’s a weird bot.And you will be able to fish [sic] Like the people of Basilion. “
People trust billions of dollars with someone who speaks that way. Literacy may be an old-fashioned idea, but those who are investing money will not sound like the characters in “Bill and Ted’s Great Adventure” or “Idiocracy.”
Roger Grimes, a data-driven defense evangelist at a security awareness training company KnowBe4 Inc.An important point for SiliconANGLE is that cryptocurrencies or potential NFT attack chains need to be protected as if they were high security government agencies.
“Cryptocurrencies and NFTs are different and very attractive to attackers,” says Grimes. “Even if an attacker discovers a vulnerability in a regular financial service or website, many steps must be taken to turn that vulnerability into stolen value. Blockchain immutability is both ways. And sometimes it’s not on the side of a good actor. “
