Discord Channels of Major NFT Projects Hacked

Captcha Bot, Arcane and Ticket Tool, the main Discord server bots have been hacked on April 1st. 

4 hours ago the hackers managed to enter the moderators’ accounts and posted on several Discord serves. The major NFT projects harmed by the incident list BAYC, Doodles, Nyoki and Shamanz, Zooverse and Kaijukingz.

For instance, BAYC Discord ‘support’ page put a scam announcement ‘Holders of MAYC + BAYC will be able to claim exclusive rewards just by simply minting and holding our mutant dogs!’, with a mint link below.

Doodles Discord page also offers fake ‘Genesis Mint’ with 500-pieces supply, as wells as Nyokie NFTs ‘rolls out public minting for 1,000 Nyokie’.

Fake administrators have also sent private messages to users, offering exclusive NFTs and the possibility to mint the whole collection. 

Bored Ape Yacht Club official Twitter page tells the collectors not to mint anything from Discord right now, as the web hook in their Discord server was briefly compromised. Therefore, the accident has nothing to do with April fools, the admins say. 

Our advice is to change the passwords, set up 2-Factor Authentication and turn off the authorisation of bots in case you are the mod of a channel. 

Always beware and don’t click on suspicious links. More servers might be hacked in the next days.
