Can MetaMask be hacked just by connecting to some sites/apps?

I saw some YouTubers claiming that their MetaMask wallet has been hacked by just connecting it to some sites/apps. It is worrying…

Can MetaMask be hacked by just connecting to some sites/apps? How is this possible?

I think the only way to lose funds to hackers is giving out the seed phrase, or am I wrong?

Can someone shed some light on this topic?
