According to the information, hackers tricked him into signing fake transactions in order to gain access to Lawlit’s NFT.
Initially, the attackers took control of the Discord server of the Moschi Mochi NFT collection and advertised the release of a thousand additional tokens.
🚨Earlier today, our discord was compromised. This caused our community to take a loss of roughly 35E. If you are a project owner, please read to avoid any potential issues!
Here’s a thread of how it happened 🧵

Accordingly, Lawlit sent 0.49 ETH in exchange for 14 NFTs. Among the transactions for confirmation, the hackers sent a fraudulent one to gain full access to the wallet.
The discord of Moshi Mochi @MoshiMochiNFT was hacked, they issued an announcement a few hours ago to mint at the final round, I clicked the mint link because it was released by official.
I mint about 40 or 50+ Moshi NFTs, and then was hacked!!

Among the stolen tokens are seven Bored Ape tokens, five Mutant Apes and one Doodle.
To avoid such situations, it is necessary to check the details and use wallets containing a small amount of funds during such transactions.
