Only a few Web3 businesses, including Cointelegraph, were attacked on January 23. WalletConnect, Token Terminal, and De.Fi official accounts have sent emails with malicious links that include wallet-draining software. MailerLite disclosed information about how their system was breached using a social engineering assault that targeted a customer care agent, just hours after the emails had been distributed to subscribers.

The team member, responding to a customer inquiry via our support portal, clicked on an image that was deceptively linked to a fraudulent Google sign-in page,

Attackers Gained Access to 117 Accounts

The attackers then gained access to MailerLite’s internal admin panel when the employee unintentionally authenticated. By using the admin panel to reset a particular user’s password, the hackers were able to take additional control.

With this level of access, they were able to impersonate user accounts. The focus was exclusively on cryptocurrency-related accounts.

According to MailerLite, although the hackers gained access to 117 accounts, they only used a small portion of them to start phishing activities. The service provider issued a warning, stating that data belonging to its users and clients, including complete names, email addresses, and private information posted to MailerLite, was compromised.
