BAYC Instagram Hacked

Over $10M worth of NFTs were hacked due to a fake Instagram post on the official BAYC instagram account today, including 4 Bored Apes, 7 Mutant Apes, and much more. It’s another vulnerability in social media that has costed users their tokens – one that is typically reserved for sites like Twitter and Discord thus far. However, no social media is safe – and today is no exception. In this case, the scammer used the social media channel to offer a fake airdrop that utilized a contract signature on user wallets enabling the scammer to seize wallet assets from the unsuspecting non-fungible token owners.

Zachxbt has traced the funds to accounts on KuCoin and Binance, but as he notes, they are likely accounts that are utilizing stolen identities.
