Image supplier, has been compromised

Due to an upsurge in pornographic images on its website, Magic Eden, a marketplace for nonfungible tokens (NFTs), had to reassure clients that their NFTs were "safe" on January 3.

The Solana-based NFT marketplace reminded its followers on January 3 via Twitter that it "has not been hacked" and that the "unhealthy photographs" were the consequence of a "compromised" external image hosting provider.

On January 3, Twitter users of Magic Eden reported that the NFT thumbnail was momentarily replaced by a sexual image when loading the archive's website.

Some people asserted to have spotted a picture from The Big Bang Theory.

Anyone else observe characters from The Big Bang Theory sitcom speeding up while they load goods in Magic Eden? Have I just seen it?" tweeted @yaboibeclownin.

Customers of Magic Eden were encouraged to "hard refresh" their browsers in order to fix the issue.

Clearing the browser's cache and loading the most recent version of the webpage are frequently required after a hard refresh.

Hey everyone, a third-party service we utilize to cache photos, our image supplier, has been compromised. Your NFTs are secure, and there has been no hacking of Magic Eden. Unfortunately, you could have seen some, er, offensive photos. You correct this, make sure to forcefully reload your browser.

Magic Eden, which ranks third in terms of 30-day volume after OpenSea and Blur, is the largest Solana-based NFT marketplace, according to DappRadar.
