MetaMask users face a phishing attack

MetaMask users face a phishing attack

Attackers send emails on behalf of cryptocurrency wallet support.

According to Halborn, links to third-party resources are distributed by email as a letter from the crypto platform's support team. The email looks like a real message from MetaMask: it uses a cryptocurrency wallet logo with a fox on it, and the message contains a link to an open call to the support team. The email contains the requirement to verify your wallet until August 30.

When the user clicks on the provided link, he is redirected to a malware website similar to the MetaMask page. The website prompts the user to enter a seed phrase of their wallet.

The Halborn team notes that the sender's name and email address contain a spelling error: Metamaks instead of MetaMask. The scammers also use a fake domain (metamaks.auction) and a server unicarpentry.onmicrosoft.com, which has no relation to the real wallet support service.

Security experts warn that missing personalization in an email, such as name or other account information, is another sign that it's a malicious phishing attack.
