Trezor users become victims of phishing

Messages have appeared online about phishing emails among users of Trezor hardware crypto wallets.

The problem was brought to the attention of on-chain detective ZachXBT, who issued a warning in his Telegram channel.

According to him, one of the users received an “infected” letter to an email that he specially created to order a Trezor device.

The account was registered about six months ago, so the expert suggested a data leak on the part of the wallet manufacturer or the British delivery company Evri.

Similar assumption expressed Reddit user Avid28193:

“Obviously, someone has taken over the Trezor customer database. I have been receiving several emails and messages about “firmware update” for a month or so now.”

Trezor responded to the situation; the company is currently “studying this issue.”

“We would like to remind all our users that Trezor never asks users for a recovery code, PIN or seed phrase,” the company emphasized, attaching a link to the security guide.

Previously, cybersecurity startup Unciphered posted a video on YouTube with the hacking of the seed phrase of the Trezor T wallet.

In September, Pocket Univers analysts warned about phishing through Discord servers – attackers embed malicious links in messages.

That same month, journalists reported that criminals began using the URLs of government websites in several countries to defraud users of the non-custodial crypto wallet MetaMask and steal their assets.
