"Discover, hunt and capture over 150+ Illuvials, deadly beasts who rule this alien world—each possessing powerful abilities and synergies. Train your Illuvials to increase their power and fuse them together to create ascended forms, as you build the perfect Illuvial team."


"Illuvium is a decentralised autonomous organisation (DAO) with a global reach, boasting over 150 dedicated contributors and thousands of empowered token holders. Driven by collaboration, our goal is to provide an unparalleled experience to players, and we’re dedicated to making it happen."


"On the 31st of December 2021, the Illuvium discord server was compromised. Hackers were able to gain access to the account of a core Illuvium contributor. Once they did, they connected a rogue Discord webhook in the #jobs channel. In that channel, were impersonating an Illuvium bot and announcing a New Year NFT stealth mind."


"In that announcement, they attached a fake website similar to the Illuvium NFT platform. Once a user authorizes the platform to gain access to their wallets, the attacker will steal their digital assets. They were able to steal $150k from 41 wallets. However, Iluuvium believes that not all these wallets are those of the hackers. It believes that some of these wallets are those of the hackers. The game is also advising Illuvians who interacted with smart contract to revoke the site immediately."


"Illuvium Community, we are seeing a rise in scams in our Discord lately. As a reminder, please DO NOT click any links in the server or in DMs that promise a reward or prize. They are always scams.


More details will be shared soon. But for now, please do not click on any links."


"Once Illuvium became aware of this happening, Illuvium banned the compromised accounts. It also sent out warnings to members of its discord server. Their response team revoked the access of these accounts from accessing Illuvium’s internal systems."


"Despite Illuvium’s swift response, the hackers were able to steal $150k from 41 wallets. Following the recovery of their server, they could not recover the stolen funds. In this regard, the game will be refunding the assets stolen during the Illuvium discord server hack."


"As mentioned previously, we will be reimbursing those who lost their funds in the Discord scam that occurred 31st December 2021 PT. All affected users need to complete this form to claim their compensation"


"As part of its “post discord hack prodecures”, Illuvians will receive the USDT equivalent of the stolen funds. This will be done directly to the accounts of the victims. To recover your funds, fill the Illuvium Discord Security Incident Compensation Application Form."

On December 31, 2021, Illuvium's Discord server experienced a breach. Hackers gained access to a core contributor's account and inserted a rogue Discord webhook in the #jobs channel. They impersonated an Illuvium bot, promoting a New Year NFT event with a fake website resembling Illuvium's NFT platform. When users authorized the platform to access their wallets, the attacker stole digital assets, resulting in losses of $150,000 from 41 wallets. Illuvium took immediate action by banning compromised accounts, issuing warnings, and revoking unauthorized access. To compensate victims, Illuvium initiated a refund process, allowing affected users to claim their reimbursement by filling out a compensation form.
