Unknown person stole three NFTs from son of Animoca Brands co-founder

An unknown attacker used a phishing link to steal three non-transferable tokens (NFTs). His victim was the underage son of Animoca Brands co-founder and chairman of NFT game developer Yata Siu.

2/ He contacted my son via discord via buy/sell channel for @RTFKTstudios on discord for his Clone-X and then suggested to use Sudoswap and phished his account via a fake link that looked legit but for a tiny detail (the .id) https://t.co/zFwXrt4L39 & ; Yat Siu (@ysiu) January 25, 2022

According to Siu, the attacker contacted his son via Discord regarding NFT avatar CloneX #2385 from RTFKT studio. He refused to conduct the transaction through the OpenSea marketplace and offered to use Sudoswap, dropping a phishing link.

The co-founder of Animoca Brands remarked that it looked real, "if not for one tiny detail (.id)."

As a result, an unknown person managed to steal three NFTs from Sioux's son's cold wallet. We are talking about two tokens from the Mutant Ape Yacht Club collection (#2568 and #24112) as well as CloneX #2385. At the time of writing, their combined value exceeds $67,000.

Siu explained that he shared the story for the safety of others in the community.

"More knowledge and awareness will make our ecosystem safer and stronger," he wrote.

To recap, a vulnerability in OpenSea that allows high-value tokens to be redeemed at an undervalued price became known on Jan. 24. Its exploitation brought the user 347 ETH.
