Magic Eden becomes porno following a hosting service hack

by Jan 4, 2023CryptoNews0 comments

The NFT market, Magic Eden claimed that its third-party image hosting provider was to blame for the problem and reassured consumers that their NFTs are secure.

After a wave of pornographic photos flooded its site on January 3, the nonfungible token (NFT) exchange Magic Eden had to reassure users that their NFTs “is secure.”

The Solana-based NFT marketplace tweeted on January 3 that the “unsavory photos” were the consequence of its third-party image hosting provider being “compromised,” not that it had been “hacked.”

Magic Eden users reported that accessing a collection’s page occasionally resulted in a pornographic image flashing in place of the NSFW NFT thumbnail on January 3.

Others said they instead saw an image from the comedy television program The Big Bang Theory.

Anyone else notice how rapidly the Big Bang Theory cast members pack their equipment on Magic Eden? “WTH did I just see,” tweeted @Yaboibeclownin.

Users were encouraged by Magic Eden to “hard refresh” their browsers to resolve the problem.

Clearing the browser’s cache and making it reload the most current copy of the page are two usual steps in a hard refresh.

The reported photos have not been displayed on the platform during testing. Therefore the problem has been fixed as of this writing.
