Bored Ape Yacht Club’s Instagram account and Discord server were both hacked on Monday, with an unofficial “mint” link being sent out to followers. Yuga Labs and Instagram are still investigating how the account was compromised, the spokesperson said.
“There is no mint going on today. It looks like BAYC Instagram was hacked. Do not mint anything, click links or link your wallet to anything,” the NFT project wrote on Twitter.The wallets of those who clicked the link have now been compromised, with a series of Bored Apes and Mutant Apes being transferred to new wallets by the hackers.The value of the 54 NFTs calculated by floor price is $13.7 million.Yuga Labs says the scope of the attack is far smaller.
