Cybersecurity firm Halborn raises alarm over new MetaMask phishing campaign

Halborn, a cybersecurity firm has issued warnings over a new phishing campaign targeting users of MetaMask, a popular crypto wallet.

Halborn’s technical education specialist Luis Lubeck claims that the active phishing campaign used emails to target MetaMask users and trick them into giving out their passphrase.

The firm analyzed scam emails it received in late July to warn users of the new scam.

Halborn also noted that spelling errors, a fake sender’s email address, and a fake domain called metamaks.auction used to send the phishing emails sold the phishing campaign out.

Phishing is an attack using targeted emails to lure victims into revealing more personal data or clicking links to malicious websites that attempt to steal crypto.

There was also no personalization in the message, Halborn noted, which is another warning sign.

Halborn was founded in 2019 by ethical hackers offering blockchain and cyber security services.

Halborn had raised $90 million in a Series A round in July.
