Attackers gained control over the creator’s Twitter account DEX Uniswap by Hayden Adams and left a link to a fraudulent site registered in Russia.
The suspicious post urged UniswapX users to check if they were eligible to receive “UNI gift tokens” by going to a phishing page.
One of the commentators notedthat the website was registered on the day of the hack in the Russian domain zone.
Later, the post of the developer of the decentralized exchange was deleted. However, other phishing publications appeared after that.
After about nine hours, Adams announced the restoration of access to the account.
