Decentralized wallet application MetaMask has warned its users not to give their keywords to anyone. The reason why the platform, which made similar warnings from time to time from official accounts, shared such a message was the phishing attacks in the last days.
Word request saying “your wallet is about to be suspended”…
This time, hackers targeted Namecheap, the e-mail service provider, and accessed customer information and sent “phishing mails” to these people. In the e-mails sent, it was stated that the user’s MetaMask wallet was about to be suspended and KYC verification was required to prevent this from happening. However, keywords were requested from users.
In the announcement made by MetaMask, it was stated that the platform did not receive KYC information and no information was requested from users by sending e-mails.
MetaMask, which warns in this way from time to time, has recently implemented the phishing detection alarm feature. Users who activate this application receive a “phishing” warning from MetaMask when they enter a fake website in this way and try to connect a wallet.
In a warning to Metamask users in January, he also stated that they should be careful about “address poisoning” and recommended that they definitely check the sent addresses more than once or use the address book route.
