BAYC Creator Warns Of Potential Otherside Twitter Hack!
Earlier today, Yuga Labs and Bored Ape Yacht Club co-founder Greg Solano, also known as Garga online, recently warned his followers and community members about the potential of one of their official accounts being prone to an attack.
On his personal Twitter account, Garga warns that “something weird” is going on with the Otherside Metaverse’s official Twitter account. He also warns everyone to “not trust anything coming from that account” for the time being.
Something weird going on with the @OthersideMeta twitter account. Insane that I have to say this, but don't trust anything coming from that account for the time being.

Only a couple of hours since Garga’s warning tweet, the Otherside Metaverse’s Twitter account saw its profile picture and header deleted and its name changed into a single dash.
Despite this change however, there have been no posts made by the account so far, including no phishing links or any other tweets of that nature.
Attacks Against Yuga Labs
This isn’t the first time that Yuga Labs has been targeted to the attacks of malicious hackers, just earlier this year Yuga Labs saw their Bored Ape Yacht Club Instagram account hacked and a phishing link posted causing $2.8 million in NFTs to be stolen.
Aside from that, in early July, multiple members of the Yuga Labs team have also warned the community of a number of persistent group of people that have supposedly been planning to launch a coordinated attack against their accounts.
Our security team has been tracking a persistent threat group that targets the NFT community. We believe that they may soon be launching a coordinated attack targeting multiple communities via compromised social media accounts. Please be vigilant and stay safe.

Just a few days before Yuga Labs tweeted this, Garga himself also warned that someone was actively trying to compromise his account, telling the community not to trust anything from his account for the time being.
It’s currently still not known yet whether the hackers responsible for the Otherside’s odd Twitter account activity are the same ones that Yuga Labs and Garga warned about earlier this July.
