Coupled with the cryptocurrency debacle and the NFT crash, the Crypto Bros can rest for a second. A group of Hackers used a Discord bot to trick users into malicious links within the servers of several popular NFT projects. Hackers compromised several NFT servers last Tuesday, with the aim of scamming their members to buy fake NFTs.
As reported by Vice, the cybersecurity firm specializing in the blockchain “PeckShield” made known what was happening through a tweet, warning that the Discord servers of the NFT Memeland, PROOF/Moonbirds, RTFKT projects, and the company CyberConnect, they were being attacked.
CyberConnect confirmed the hack on Twittercalling on its users not to click on any link that was shared on their Discord.
Another one affected by the hackers’ attack was the game Axie Infinity, which announced that the MEE6 bot on its Discord server was affected with the fake message. The MEE6 bot is quite popular on Discord, and many servers use it to automate messages and other functions.
The team behind the bot came out to clarify on Twitter the problem the NFT servers had: “Some servers reported that MEE6 is used to post spam. There is no technical gap in our systems. This was because the account of one of our employees was compromised.”
According to information from Vice, one of the hackers is someone who calls himself Kareem Bribez, and who confirmed to be part of the attack on the Discord of the different NFTs, assured that focusing on the MEE6 bot made sense because “it is a important bot, so it’s a good way to get access to large servers.”
