Trezor Is Looking Into A Possible Data Breach After Users Reported Phishing Attacks.
Several Twitter users alerted Trezor to an ongoing email phishing effort aimed at Trezor customers using their registered email addresses.
Trezor, a cryptocurrency hardware wallet company, has initiated an investigation into a probable data breach in which customers’ email addresses and other personal information may have been exposed.
On April 3, numerous members of the Crypto Twitter community warned of an ongoing email phishing effort targeting the company users via their registered email accounts.
Several users have been approached by unauthorized actors acting as the firm in the continuous operation, with the ultimate goal of stealing money by deceiving naive investors. Users were sent an email about installing an app from the ‘trezor.us’ domain, which is different from the official domain name, ‘trezor.io,’ as part of the assault.
Trezor first assumed the hacked email addresses belonged to a list of users who had opted-in for newsletters hosted by Mailchimp, an American email marketing service provider.
The firm announced the following after additional investigation:
“MailChimp have confirmed that their service has been compromised by an insider targeting crypto companies.”
While the company conducts an official investigation to determine the overall number of stolen email addresses, users should refrain from clicking on links from unauthorised sources until further notice.
BlockFi, a crypto financial institution situated in New Jersey, proactively verified a data breach on March 19 to alert investors about the risk of phishing attempts.
BlockFi’s client data, which was housed on Hubspot, a client relationship management platform, was hacked. BlockFi claims that:
“Hubspot has confirmed that an unauthorized third-party gained access to certain BlockFi client data housed on their platform.”
While the specifics of the data breach have yet to be uncovered, BlockFi reassured consumers by stating that sensitive information such as passwords, government-issued IDs, and social security numbers “were never stored on Hubspot.”
