Hackers broke into Azuki’s official Twitter account earlier today and stole more than $750,000. Emily Rose, who is in charge of the NFT project’s community, confirmed the incident on Twitter and told people not to click on any links because they were fake.

Azuki is the victim of a cyberattack in 2023
Recent news shows that hackers got into Azuki’s official Twitter account and posted a fake link. Some users lost money because of this phishing attack. Unaware users were sent to a site to buy land that was supposed to be The Garden, Azuki’s first metaverse.
1/ The @AzukiOfficial Twitter was compromised today. A series of malicious tweets were posted during the morning of Friday, Jan 27th (Pacific Time).— Azuki (@AzukiOfficial) January 27, 2023
The team has regained control of the @AzukiOfficial Twitter.
Details below 👇
After people signed transactions through the link, the thieves took their money. Investors lost more than $750,000 worth of USDC, 122 NFTs, and more than 3.9 ETH in just 30 minutes.
Etherscan says that most of the stolen money comes from a single wallet. The user fell for the scam and sent $750,000 to the hacker’s wallet.
Still trying to figure out how many NFTs were taken, but two Mutant Ape Yacht Club NFTs were among the 122 handled.
Since then, Azuki’s official Twitter account has been found. The platform has also taken down fake tweets.
As a safety precaution, Azuki tells its users not to click on any phishing links on the platform. Azuki plans to make future announcements on all of its media channels simultaneously to ensure they are true.
