Hackers infringe on Exodus
Oddly enough, digital scammers are some of the most productive users of the crypto industry. Fraudsters working to create criminal schemes constantly come up with new ways to deceive. The latest “trend” in this dark business is phishing. In fact, this is a fairly old approach, which, however, has taken on new meaning when combined with digital platforms. We saw something similar earlier with Ledger digital storage. And today it became known that criminals are trying to compromise the Exodus platform. We will tell you how to distinguish scammers and not become their next victim. So let’s get started.
What exactly is going on
First of all, you should understand the context of current events. First, let’s recall that Exodus is a well-known digital vault. The functionality of this service is used by a huge number of various cryptocurrency fans. Traders, miners and ordinary users began to receive a notification that the used functionality was allegedly out of date. In fact, this is the work of scammers. According to the invented legend, the owners of the wallet were infected with a new digital virus. Fictional spyware threatens the security of digital savings, and account holders are therefore required to update their algorithms. But of course this is just a gimmick.
After clicking on the link to the copied site, your system becomes infected with a real virus. It is not yet known how and with what exactly the system is infected. However, nothing good will come from using criminal software. Users note that the letters are absolutely similar to the messages that came in the mail from Ledger. This allows us to conclude that the same scammers are behind the fraud.
How to avoid becoming a victim of Exodus hackers?
It’s pretty simple. Follow the crypto industry news carefully. If information appears in the digital field that such a popular storage is infected with a new threat, we will be the first to tell you about what happened. Understanding the context of what is happening in the area of the products used will allow you to easily identify such scammers. Also, we do not recommend clicking on links from emails without careful analysis of the sender. Believe me, modern hackers can completely compromise even the most famous resource. So vigilance is the only way to protect your funds.
Remember that dealing with large capital is inextricably linked to risks that can and should be prevented. Nevertheless, even with the most vigilant users, anything happens. In the event that the system is already infected, you will have to thoroughly clean the entire computer. After all, hackers can even use a program that remembers keystrokes, and then allows you to remotely connect to your storages. If you notice the smallest change in the operation of your device, be sure to contact the specialists or diagnose yourself and then remove the problem. Before it’s too late.
The security of digital savings is not a right to choose, but the responsibility of every user of the cryptoindustry. After all, with a negligent attitude to your own funds, you practically give the scammers the key to the source of capital to create new criminal schemes. The latter directly harm each of the users.
