Researchers have observed a huge increase in the number of Discord malware detections in comparison to last year. A recent report claims that malware incidents have increased 140 times from the last year due to CDN and API abuse. According to Sophos researchers, Discord’s CDN is often exploited by attackers for hosting malware, and the API is abused to exfiltrate stolen data.

Discord’s CDN and API provide a flexible architecture that is frequently abused by cybercriminals. Further, attacks are not just limited to gamers anymore as the messaging app is being used by other groups and online communities as well. Therefore, all users are recommended to take caution and not follow any suspicious links or download any file shared on Discord servers or chats.
