MARCH 2022




"Doodles are a collection of 10,000 NFTs (non-fungible tokens) that are made up of hundreds of exciting visual traits designed by Burnt Toast." "Doodles are a colorful NFT collection of cartoonish figures with unique features and colorful backgrounds. Doodles NFTs were created by Scott Martin (aka Burnt Toast), an established Canadian artist and illustrator. Doodles are made from random combinations of 256 traits. The collection also features 62 hand-drawn Custom Doodles."


"Hand-drawn Doodles include skellys, cats, aliens, apes and mascots. The Doodles collection also includes dozens of rare heads, costumes, and colorways of the artist's palette." "Doodles NFTs are enjoyed for their droll expressions, colorful palettes and the vibrant online community that shares a passion for this project. Doodles are often used as PFPs (profile pictures) on social media platforms."


"The Doodles universe is ever-expanding and new experiences like Space Doodles are only available to collectors. While the universe expands, our brand grows, and collectors can expect exclusive access to the latest products, merchandise and events through ownership."


"Owning a Doodle allows you to vote on community-driven features, products and events. This makes our roadmap collaborative to be decided by the project founders and Doodle holders via the Doodlebank. The Doodlebank is our community treasury which boasts over $5m USD and is used to fund these experiences."


"Lift off has completed, and we are now ready to land! Mint your Doodle Planet Now! Supply 500 Limited amount! Mint 0.05 ETH. Genesis has a limited supply, be quick! Be sure to approve when minting to ensure the transaction goes through!"


"Security breaches and data attacks on crypto firms have seen a drastic rise in the last few months. A couple of days ago, the BAYC team confirmed that their Discord servers were compromised, and the hackers even managed to steal a valuable Mutant ApeYacht Club (MAYC) NFT."


"[T]he Discord of another NFT collection, Doodle, was also attacked." "Both of the phishing sites are very similar. It has to be the same group behind Doodles & BAYC."


"According to Serpent, the Ticket Tool was the real source of the hack."


"The user also stated that according to the inside information received from the hackers, the official Captcha Bot was also hacked and that the source code had been stolen."


"I have received inside information from one of the hackers. THE OFFICIAL CAPTCHA BOT IS HACKED, REMOVE IT FROM YOUR SERVER. BAYC & Doodles have already been hacked within the last 30 minutes but MANY MORE SERVERS WILL BE HACKED."


"This is not 100% confirmed to be the root cause of these hacks but remove it from your servers to stay safe and use a different verification bot."


"I was told that the owner of Captcha Bot (ImDarkDiamond) was compromised and the source code was stolen (This part is 100% confirmed)" "Last I was told, owner of captcha bot was hacked, the source code was stolen and they were going to extort him. The bot doesn't seem compromised currently but I would still stay far away from it. REAL source of the hack is 100% confirmed to be Ticket Tool." "Security researchers said a ticketing tool that checks users and sends out notifications across the channel has been compromised."

The Doodles NFT are a collection of 10,000 hand-drawn NFT images made by a Canadian artist with the handle "Burnt Toast". The Discord server of the project was hacked on March 31st/April 1st using an exploit in the webhooks for a ticketing system in common use. Viewers of the Discord were promised a great deal on a limited edition mint, however the site they were taken to would authorize the full withdrawal of any remaining assets in their wallets. It is unknown how much was taken, and doesn't appear any was recovered.


The lesson here is about providing an account/tool with more privileges than necessary. Using a full-permissioned account when not necessary increases the breach window.


Ideally, performing key actions such as banning moderators or posting global announcements would be set up such that multiple people's approval is required. In this way, it would be nearly impossible to breach.


In our framework, we advocate for training platform operators about incidents such as these, and require the approval of two separate security sign-offs for a project to launch, which would likely catch any weak security practices. A discretionary treasury fund is available to cover losses, in addition to whatever treasury is available with projects directly.
