Hackers attack CyberKongz, one of the popular NFT collections, Twitter and Discord accounts. Suspicions rise after the accounts posted a malicious minting giveaway link to lure NFT collectors into the trap by tweeting a surprise mint announcement.
Launched in 2021, CyberKongz is a collection of pixelated 3D avatars in an alternate reality of apes. Each NFT has a unique set of rarities that makes it valuable from others.
The project has many sub-collections that have recorded successful sales over the years with the main collection accumulating 27,787 ETH, around $35M trading volume on OpenSea.
Having so many users, it’s easy to fool people into fake mints and drops. The hackers decided to attack Cyberkongz’s Twitter/Discord account to post fake links ending with .html, which means a malicious file is attached to it that can possibly drain out NFTs from wallets once the owner signs approval to their wallet.
Security analysis firm, CertiK has also warned users to not access any link posted on the project’s official Discord account and Tweets.
Stay alert and do not click on any malicious links!
