A crypto space once again suffered a phishing attack, in which the perpetrator duplicated the Ethereum Denver website and stole nearly $300,000 worth of Ethereum.
Luckily, Blockfence traced the phishing attack first and highlighted it on Twitter. According to it, over 2800 wallets got affected through this website in the last six months.
Hackers had gone as far as paying for a Google advertisement to promote the malicious website’s URL, banking on search trends being high, with ETHDenver taking place on Feb. 24 and 25. The fake website appeared second on a Google search, above the actual ETHDenver website.
