Gordon Goner, the co-founder of Yuga Labs and the Bored Ape Yacht Club (BAYC), has issued a warning on Twitter to users about a potential attack on the BAYC social media accounts. The warning was issued yesterday after Gordon claimed that the BAYC got credible information that a Twitter insider would be assisting a team of hackers that is carrying out the attack on their social media accounts.
Following that, Yuga Labs contacted Twitter to monitor the accounts and Twitter confirmed that they had reinforced the security.
Gorner warned the BAYC community twice that there wouldn’t be any surprise mints. Scammers and hackers are always trying to cash in on every possible opportunity. The fake mint news and the phishing links embedded in the fake news are one of the common ways how scammers loot the wallets of the users.
It is because of this that BAYC has been prone to several attacks recently. For example, attackers exploited the discord group of the Otherside and looted over 145 ETH a week ago.
This warning acts as a caution for the BAYC community to stay vigilant so that they are not blindsided by the hackers.
