The Bored Ape Yacht Club Discord server, which has the largest NFT collection by market cap, was hacked today, according to a tweet from the team. Unknown hackers obtained access to the official Discord server used by members of Yuga Labs' Bored Ape Yacht Club, Mutant Ape Yacht Club, and Mutant Ape Kennel Club.

A phishing link was successfully uploaded in the Mutant Ape Kennel Club channel by the hacker. According to security firm PeckShield, it was disguised as a'stealth NFT mint' and was used to steal Mutant Ape Yacht Club #8662 from one user.

In a tweet, the BAYC team claimed to have ‘found’ the problem right away. Despite this, the team warned users not to mint any NFT via a link posted on its Discord and informed observers that no April Fools stealth mints were planned.

“STAY SAFE. Do not mint anything from any Discord right now. A webhook in our Discord was briefly compromised,” BAYC tweeted. “We caught it immediately but please know: we are not doing any April Fools stealth mints / airdrops etc. Other Discords are also being attacked right now.”

According to reports, the hacker may have carried out the attack using Ticket Tool, a famous Discord bot that generates support tickets automatically.

A similar attack has been reported on the Doodles Discord server, another popular NFT collection, but the Doodles team has yet to respond.

Hackers frequently use Discord accounts to carry out phishing attacks against NFTs collectors. A new NFT collection, Rare Bears, announced just a few weeks ago that its members had been victims of a similar crime and had lost almost $790,000.
