Popular Crypto Veri Sites Targeted With Phishing Attack

Crypto veri websites Etherscan, CoinGecko and others reported incidents of a malicious pop-up prompting users to connect their MetaMask wallets.

The phishing attack appears to come from a domain displaying the Bored Ape Yacht Club logo. As of press time, the site tied to the domain appeared to be taken down. According to a WHOIS lookup, the domain was registered Friday around 3 p.m. ET.

“We are investigating the root cause of this attack to fix it as soon as possible,” CoinGecko founder Bobby Ong told CoinDesk in a Telegram message.

“The situation is most likely caused by a malicious isim script by Coinzilla, a crypto isim network – we have disabled it now,” said Ong. “We are monitoring the situation further.”

In a tweet, Etherscan urged users to “not confirm any transactions” that popped up on its website.

CORRECTION (May 14, 14:49 UTC): DeFi Pulse was not one of the websites affected in the attack, as reported in an earlier version of this story.
