OpenSea Probes NFT Phishing Attack, Co-Founder Says

  • Attack is likely not connected to the OpenSea website
  • No ‘malicious’ activity seen from attacker account recently

The co-founder of OpenSea said the non-fungible token marketplace is investigating a “phishing attack,” which doesn’t appear to be active.

“We don’t believe it’s connected to the OpenSea website,” Devin Finzer, who is also its chief executive officer, said on Twitter. “It appears 32 users thus far have signed a malicious payload from an attacker, and some of their NFTs were stolen.”
