Aliens TLDR

Messaging platform Discord servers of multiple large NFT collections and crypto projects, including play-to-earn game Axie Infinity , have been compromised, with attackers publishing phishing links that appear to be NFT mints.

"There was a compromise of the MEE6 bot which was installed on the main Axie server," Axie Infinity said .

"The attackers used that bot to add permissions to a fake Jiho [Jeff Zirlin, co-founder of Axie] account, which then posted a fake announcement about a mint." The team noted that they have removed the fake announcements, adding that they would "never do a surprise mint." Some other projects have also confirmed the attack, speculating that the widely-used MEE6 Discord bot might have been compromised.
