Sophisticated Phishing Attack Compromises Trezor's X Account

The culmination of the attack in Trezor occurred during an alleged scheduled interview with the company’s CEO

During this call, the attackers shared a malicious link disguised as a Calendly invitation.

When a team member clicked the link, they were prompted to enter X’s login credentials, which raised immediate suspicion and led to the cessation of the interaction.

Despite the attackers attempts to restart the call and gain access to SatoshiLabs X account, the company detected the unauthorized activity and quickly removed the fraudulent messages.

Moreover, in an effort to bolster security measures, all active sessions, including those initiated by third-party applications, were promptly revoked as a precautionary step against further unauthorized access.

SatoshiLabs emphasizes that the security of its products, including Trezor and Trezor Suite hardware wallets, was not compromised in this incident.

The company has launched a thorough investigation to identify the methods used by attackers and further strengthen its security measures.

The attack on X’s account highlights the importance of constant vigilance and taking proactive security measures in the digital environment, even for companies with established reputations in the crypto space.
