OpenSea discloses email data breach
Warns users of phishing attacks
OpenSea, the largest NFT marketplace, is warning users of phishing attacks after a recent data breach.
In a blog post published last night, OpenSea said that an employee of its email delivery partner, Customer.io, had misused their access to download and share email addresses provided by OpenSea users and newsletter subscribers with an unauthorized external party.
The security breach seems to be large. “If you have shared your email with OpenSea in the past, you should assume you were impacted,” the company said, adding that it is working with Customer.io in an ongoing investigation, and has reported this incident to law enforcement.
OpenSea said that malicious actors might try to contact users via emails from domains that look similar to OpenSea.io, such as OpensSae.io or OpenSea.xyz, so make sure to be careful from here on out.
