An announcement on the channel announced the platform’s collaboration with video hosting site YouTube as part of a limited edition NFT release. Users were invited to follow a link that visually resembled the service’s actual domain.

The OpenSea team confirmed the hack and reached out to users:

“We are currently investigating a potential vulnerability in our Discord, please do not click on any links”.

As of this writing, experts are still investigating the incident. No details or possible damage have been reported.
Do not click links in our Discord.
