Unauthorized actors masquerading as Trezor employees are contacting several users in an attempt to steal money from unsuspecting investors. During the attack, customers got an email directing them to download an app from the “trezor.us” domain, distinct from the official Trezor domain name, ‘trezor.io.”
“We are investigating a potential data breach of an opt-in newsletter hosted on MailChimp. A scam email warning of a data breach is circulating. Do not open any email originating from [email protected], it is a phishing domain.”
Trezor first thought that the hacked email addresses belonged to a list of subscribers to Mailchimp, an American email marketing service company. Meanwhile, Trezor advises users not to click on links from unauthorized sources, as Trezor is still investigating the overall number of stolen email addresses. In addition, BlockFi, a New Jersey-based crypto financial institution, issued a public warning on March 19 regarding the risk of phishing attempts after a data breach.
In a statement, personal data, like passwords, government-issued identification, and social security numbers “were never stored on Hubspot,” BlockFi said. However, the company has yet to explain the nature of the incident.
