The NFT community has been hacked on Twitter again

The NFT community has been hacked on Twitter again

Non-fungible token (NFT) influencer Zeneca was the latest person to fall for a phishing scheme that targeted the NFT ecosystem.
Twitter and Discord took over accounts related to a fake “Zen Academy Founders Pass” airdrop, tricking people into linking their wallets with the influencer. It’s still not clear how much damage the attack will do.

” 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 (1/2)— – (@Zeneca_33) July 19, 2022.”

The founder of the Bored Ape Yacht Club, Yuga Labs, tweeted on Monday about a “widespread threat” to the NFT community.

” Our security team has been tracking a persistent threat group that targets the NFT community. We believe that they may soon be launching a coordinated attack targeting multiple communities via compromised social media accounts. Please be vigilant and stay safe.— Yuga Labs (@yugalabs) July 18, 2022″

As soon as the tweet went out, Zeneca’s account was reported as being hacked. Justin Tayler, who is in charge of marketing for consumer products at Twitter, took action 40 minutes after the hacking happened. Neither Twitter nor CoinDesk could say anything about how bad the attack was.

Impersonations and scams on Discord are becoming more common in the NFT community, so this hack is nothing new. The most recent major breach happened in early June when a Bored Ape Yacht Club Discord moderator’s account was taken over in a similar way.
