OpenSea Turmoil

OpenSea encountered a phishing scam this weekend, as a hacker stole 254 NFT tokens ranging from Bored Apes to Decentraland Assets. The hacker allegedly compiled a list of the addresses before the contact migration was scheduled and then targeted these consumers through a phishing attack to migrate listings. After appearing to be OpenSea and gaining signature access to the wallets, the hacker then transferred out the valuable assets subverting any payment verifications. This is on the heels of a lawsuit filed against OpenSea for the listing issue that was causing high-valued assets to be sold off low, inactive listings. The loss of a Bored Ape created the case of McKimmy v. OpenSea.
