Gaming DAO warns users of fake airdrops amid social media hacks

A decentralized autonomous organization (DAO) focusing on gaming has recently warned its users that some of its X accounts were compromised. The company reminded its community that it doesn’t have airdrops, new mints or anything else planned. 

After working to regain access to the accounts, the crypto game publisher tweeted on July 25 that it was able to bring back the X accounts to their “rightful hands” and finally contain the issue. 

The firm did not provide additional information about how the hack happened or if any victims were affected by the recent security breach. However, the company warned its users to exercise an abundance of caution and to be safe, highlighting that its team has witnessed a significant rise in phishing attempts within the Treasure community and the broader Arbitrum ecosystem.

On July 21, Changpeng Zhao, the CEO of Binance, warned the crypto space about the increasing number of phishing hacks. Zhao urged exchange users to use hardware-based two-factor authentication (2FA) systems instead of mobile carrier-based 2FA.
