The Discord API does not require a kind of confirmation or approval and can be used by anyone. Due to these freedoms of the Discord API, there is the only way to prevent discord malware, in deactivating all discord bots. However, this can not happen without damaging the discord community sustainably. Consequently, it is on the users themselves to protect their devices. "

steps to protect themselves from discord-based malware and how to detect whether they are infected:

avoid visiting uncertain and unknown websites - suspicious links are always A warning signal Download only files from trusted sources - Do not download a file if you are not sure that it is safe to monitor traffic on your network - if Discord traffic is available, although discord does not install on the system is, they may have been infected with a discord-based malware.
