NFT marketplace OpenSea yesterday shared new details of the theft of millions of dollars in Ether of users’ NFTs. The company has clarified 17 users were affected, and not 32, as it was previously reported. Initially, everyone who interacted with the address of the attacker was counted, and not just the actual victims of the phishing attack.

The hacker attack is currently inactive. OpenSea has said there has not been any activity in relation to the malicious contract for more than 15 hours. The project has reported via Twitter it is currently conducting an investigation. Those users who may have any information about the incident have been asked to share it with company’s technical support team.

Remember that last February 19 it was known that some NFTs had been stolen from OpenSea users. It was reported the damage from the hack could reach 200 million, however, the company co-founder Devin Finzer denied this information. He said the address of the attacker had $1.7 million in Ethereum, which were received from part of the stolen NFTs.
