According to PeckShield, OpenSea users reported a phishing assault that resulted in the theft of numerous non-fungible tokens.


The NFT marketplace, on the other hand, stated it was looking into the "rumors" and that any attack was unrelated to its website.


Users of OpenSea began reporting strange behavior in their accounts early this week.


PeckShield, a blockchain security firm, warned clients to a continuous phishing attack, requiring that they authorize a migration to another OpenSea website that promised to be gas-free.



The marketplace's staff said it was "currently examining rumors of an exploit," and that the event was a phishing attack "originating outside of OpenSea's website."


Later, company co-founder Devin Finzer chimed in, claiming that 32 users had "signed a malicious payload from an attacker, and part of their NFTs were stolen."


Finzer went on to say that the team believes the attack is over because no additional phishing emails have been reported.


He also shot down allegations that the platform had been robbed of $200 million. According to their own calculations, the culprit sold some NFTs worth $1.7 million in ETH for the time being.


PeckShield released a list of the allegedly stolen NFTs, claiming that hundreds of ERC721 and dozens of ERC1155 digital artworks were taken from users.


Bored Ape Yacht Club (BAYC), Azuki, Farm Land by Pixels, and others are among them.
