NFT News – Axie Infinity, the popular play-to-earn NFT game. Faced another attack on its Discord server earlier Wednesday, which compromised its MEE6 bot.
The team said the hackers used the MEE6 bot to add permissions to a fake Jiho account. Making fake announcements about a mint.
MEE6 is a Discord bot that allows admins to automatically give and remove roles and send messages.
What You Need To Know
iexclusivenews Nigeria reports that MEE6 is a popular discord bot that is used by many crypto projects for automating roles and messages.
The attackers utilized the hacked bot to provide rights to a fake Jiho account, then issued a phony mint announcement.
The developers were able to eliminate the bogus messages as well as the compromised MEE6 bot from the main server.
However, the project’s official Twitter account warns that many users may continue to see the bogus message until they restart Discord.
The developers also stated that the MEE6 compromise is not a novel occurrence and that numerous projects have had similar problems.
This online news outlet understands that the official MEE6 Discord support channel, on the other hand, refuted reports of a hack.
Claiming that they had checked with their engineers and found no anomalous activity message from the MEE6 Discord Channel.
What People Are Saying
iexclusivenews reports that many believe the hackers first compromised the admin accounts. And then used MEE6 to get access to the alternate admin account.
This allowed them to send out webbook messages while concealing the administrator account that had been hijacked.
The Discord bot hack comes less than a month after one of the largest heists on Axie Infinity’s Ronin bridge. Which resulted in the loss of more than $600 million in crypto assets.
The community’s faith in the game was once regarded as a groundbreaking endeavor in the gaming world. Has been shaken by a series of security breaches.
