Aptos Network compromised by airdrop scam; users warned not to engage with suspicious tweets
Users have been advised to avoid engaging with any communications referencing APT airdrops.
Aptos Labs announced on Twitter today that the Aptos Network had been compromised. The news was confirmed through an official communication from the Aptos Foundation, as reported on Aptos Labs’ Twitter account.
The breach has led to a fraudulent tweet concerning an APT airdrop. Aptos Labs has urgently warned its followers and the wider community not to engage with any suspicious tweets or click any links provided therein.
According to Aptos Labs, the blockchain itself remains uncompromised.
