The recent incident mirrors the modus operandi of the criminal, who seems to specialize in targeting high-value NFTs. The victims of the previous heist, the original owners of the stolen CryptoPhunks and Meebits, continue to grapple with the aftermath of the theft. The rarity and uniqueness of these NFTs have only exacerbated the devastation felt by the affected individuals.

The assault, also reported by PeckShieldAlert, involves the utilization of various methods, including ERC2771, to compromise the security of NFT holdings.
