An attacker successfully compromised the Twitter account belonging to the popular Gutter Cat Gang NFT project, as well as the one belonging to the project co-founder, and used them to post links to phishing sites claiming to be a new NFT airdrop. Instead of receiving the tokens they were promised, those who authorized the contract had their wallets drained.
One victim lost 36 NFTs, among them a Bored Ape NFT they’d purchased for around $130,000. Altogether, the attackers successfully stole NFTs worth between $750,000 and $900,000, depending on how resale value is estimated.
The following day, Gutter Cat Gang announced that they’d regained control over the Twitter accounts and taken down the malicious tweets. They stated that they were working with law enforcement to investigate the theft, but to the dismay of some victims, did not describe any plans to compensate those who lost assets.
