The well-known American actor, director, writer, and producer announced on Twitter yesterday that he had been the target of a phishing assault and had four NFTs stolen, which were later identified by OpenSea.
With its recent rise, the NFT sector has attracted a slew of superstars, like Eminem, Neymar, Madonna, Serena Williams, Snoop Dogg, and a slew of others who have purchased digital collections.
Seth Green, a 48-year-old Hollywood actor who has appeared in films. Such as The Italian Job, Robot Chicken, and Party Monsters, is one of those well-known names.
On Tuesday, the Pennsylvania native said that four of his NFTs were taken as a result of a phishing attack.
Such attacks occur when a bad actor sends a fake message to the victim in order to deceive him into providing important information – usually in order to access his computer or phone.
The attacker can then steal data or install harmful software such as ransomware after getting access.
The four stolen NFTs came from some of the most popular NFT collections. So, according to Green, including Doodles, Mutant Ape Yacht Club, and Bored Ape Yacht Club.
His original tweets highlighted the prices they were trading for at the time. Then, and he begged the community not to buy or trade them while he worked to remedy the problem.
All four stolen digital collectibles are now marked as “reported for suspicious behaviour” on OpenSea.
