The developers of the crypto MyEtherWallet has warned users that their service is a phishing attack, and released a sample message with which attackers try to get recipients to reveal information about themselves and to give access to money in crypto.
The developers drew the attention of the customers, on what they themselves never initiate correspondence by email and usually respond only to requests addressed to support and never requested to inform private keys.
There’s another phishy email going around asking users to give up personal information. Don’t believe the hype!
#1. We will never email you first (only reply to support).
#2. We will never ask for your private key (or other sensitive info).
#3. Be skeptical! pic.twitter.com/654TLIt5ar

However, the users of crypto Electrum are still under the threat of phishing attacks, which became known about a month ago. During the transaction, many of them get the error message, to fix that you want to update Electrum to version 4.0.0, but in reality latest applications exist in version 3.3.
We will remind, a week ago representatives of the 2P2 platform for the exchange of bitcoins LocalBitcoins announced that its users due to a vulnerability in the security system has been a phishing attack, in which at least six people have lost their 7,95205862 BTC.
