A well-known Non-Fungible Tokens (NFTs) marketplace has alerted its API users to a possible security issue. The organisation acknowledged that one of its vendors had a security problem that might have disclosed details about users’ OpenSea API keys in an email that was sent publicly by a user going by the name of MatriXBT.
Users were reassured by OpenSea in the email that they shouldn’t anticipate any immediate effects on the platform integration. They did, however, highly warn API users to act right now to reduce any potential hazards. It is advised that users stop using their current API keys and create new ones in their stead.
The transition for users will be seamless while security is increased because the new API keys will have the same permissions and rate restrictions as the old keys. Although OpenSea has not made a public remark regarding this event, its prompt action shows its dedication to safeguarding customer assets and data.
