The 48-year-old Hollywood star known for movies like The Italian Job, Robot Chicken, and Party Monsters, Seth Green, had recently joined the popular NFTs wagon. He is not the only one from Hollywood who has been fascinated by the blockchain world; NFTS has managed to attract countless celebrities, including Eminem, Neymar, Serena Williams, Snoop Dogg, and countless others.

How do Phishing attacks happen?
Phishing attacks happen when a vicious individual tries and sends a deceptive message to fool a target of their choice into divulging sensitive and crucial information, generally to gain access to their computer or mobile device. Once they get access, they can steal the data or install malicious software to harm the software system.
According to blockchain records, the attack happened nine days ago. OpenSea has listed Green’s account and the stolen NFTs as suspicious and potentially compromised.
The stolen NFTs include one Bored Ape, two Mutant Apes, and one Doodles collection NFT. The Bored Ape was sold for over $200,000 by the hacker and the Mutant Ape for $42,200, and the other NFTs are worth a combined USD 70,000 based on their collections’ floor price.
These attacks have become extremely common in Digital space. Cyber thieves are always looking for new ways to steal from crypto wallets. All it takes is connecting your wallet to the wrong website, and boom, your expensive tokens are stolen.
Seth Green has become a subject for trollers on the internet because he is a popular comedian who said good things about NFTs in the past, and some people still don’t believe in the concept of Blockchain Technology.
