    New NFT private auction scam threatens OpenSea users

    As nonfungible tokens (NFTs) became more popular, bad actors who constantly try to exploit users within the space have become more active.
    In an announcement, anti-theft project Harpie warned NFT users of a new hack involving gasless sales on the OpenSea platform.
    According to Harpie, hackers were able to steal millions in digital assets by exploiting the feature.
    When users want to conduct gasless sales within the OpenSea platform, they are required to approve a signature request with an unreadable message.
    It's the newest hack, and multiple millions of Apes have been lost to it already.
    This was followed by the victim’s wallet being drained.
