In yet another breach, 32 non-fungible tokens were stolen because the Discord servers of the Bored Ape Yacht Club and OtherSide were compromised.
Earlier today, the Discord servers of the Bored Ape Yacht Club and OtherSide were compromised.
The community manager going by the Twitter handle BorisVagner had his account hacked, which enabled scammers to execute a phishing attack, leading users to a fake website under the premise of a giveaway exclusive to BAYC, MAYC, and OtherSide holders.
The link was malicious, and those who used it reportedly saw their NFTs drained. The total value of the stolen tokens amounted to 145 ETH.
PeckShield later revealed that the scam saw 32 NFTs stolen. These included 1 BAYC, 2 MAYC, 5 Otherdeeds, and 1 BAKC.

Unfortunately, this is far from being the first time BAYC holders fall for phishing scams.
Earlier in April, CryptoPotato reported that the company’s Instagram account got hacked, which resulted in a loss of around $2.7 million worth of NFTs.
