OpenSea, the leading platform for non-fungible tokens (NFTs), has reported a leak of user data.
The reason was the misuse of information by an employee of Customer.io, an email delivery service used by OpenSea.
The said employee had passed the email addresses of NFT-marketplace customers to a third party. OpenSea warned of possible consequences in the form of phishing attempts.
The site team noted that attackers could try to contact potential victims using an email address similar to the official domain of opensea.io.
Portal customers are asked not to click on suspicious links and warned against using the same password to access the account and confirmation of transactions by email.
Since the beginning of the year, OpenSea has repeatedly encountered difficulties. Recently it was reported that a former manager of the platform was being sued for insider trading. And before that, in February, the marketplace was forced to suspend its work due to a phishing attack.
