Hackers Breach Blur Marketplace, Stealing 13 NFTs

    A series of tweets from PeckShield Alert has revealed that hackers have successfully stolen 14 digital collectibles on the Blur marketplace. This incident occurred as the global sales of non-fungible tokens (NFTs) experienced a significant rise in the past 24 hours.

    The attacker known as Fake_Phishing156212 managed to pilfer MetaHeroCore #24, Doodles #1501, and Doodles #1504. Surprisingly, the hacker only paid for the transaction fees on the Ethereum (ETH) blockchain, leaving the collectibles themselves unpaid, with an approximate cost of $30.

    Another perpetrator, PinkDrainer, was able to acquire five MiladyMakers for an incredibly low price of 0.000000000000000005 ETH, which is virtually negligible in value. However, the transaction fees amounted to around $113.

    PeckShield’s tweet also disclosed that PinkDrainer successfully stole Doodle #6853, Bean #14446, 2 RENGAs, and Otherdeed #54541.

    Subsequently, PinkDrainer exchanged the stolen Otherdeed #54541, valued at approximately $1,900, for an Otherside #65611 along with 0.478 ETH, which is worth around $890, on the Blur Pool.

    These phishing attacks coincide with a 13.3% surge in global NFT sales within the past 24 hours. According to CryptoSlam’s data, the total volume of NFT sales has exceeded $33 million, while the number of unique buyers has decreased by 13%, resulting in 69,436 consumers.

    The security breach on the Blur marketplace highlights the ongoing challenges and risks associated with NFT transactions. It serves as a reminder for both platforms and users to prioritize robust security measures to safeguard valuable digital assets in this growing market.
