How did hackers steal NFTs listed on Blur?
Apparently, the hackers phished unsuspecting NFT holders for their assets. Phishing is described as, “the fraudulent practice of sending emails or other messages purporting to be from reputable companies in order to induce individuals to reveal personal information, such as passwords and credit card numbers.” Unfortunately, crypto provides an excellent hunting ground for this type of activity.
The problem with the principle of self-custody is that people actually need to self-custody their assets. This means that crypto holders need to practice excellent operation security– they can’t click links, interact with malicious contracts, or do any of other dangerous activities online. Hackers know that crypto users hold massively valuable digital assets, oftentimes on the same devices they use to browse the internet. Therefore, bad actors target them at an enormous scale.
This situation is an example of this sad reality. NFT holders clicked a link or approved a contract that gave hackers access to their wallets. After that, the hackers can easily and quickly drain the victims’ wallets of anything of value.
