The hackers had the exact similar modus operandi as the BAYC Discord hacks. Firstly, the hackers take the account of one of the Discord moderators and then spam malicious links on servers disguised as announcements. Once a user clicks on the links, their wallets are compromised and they lose their NFTs.

The NFT communities have officially addressed the matter and warned its members not to click links at the risk of losing their NFTs. Apocalyptic Apes lost 21 NFTs, meanwhile, Bubbleworld lost 160 NFTs. Among the NFTs stolen were Beanz, Goblintown, Otherdeed, CoolCats, Mindblowon, and Boki.

Hi everyone our Discord has been compromised please don’t click any links while we are in the midst of securing the discord. Please only follow links instructions we post on BOTH Twitter AND Discord!

Official statement from the official Bubbleworld Twitter account. The other three communities similarly address the hacks.  

On June 4, hackers breached the official BAYC Discord and took 200ETH worth of NFTs (over $350,000 at the time of writing). Hackers have targeted BAYC several times in 2022, notably, an Instagram breach in April siphoned users of over 130NFTs costing several million at the time.
