OpenSea Notifies Customers of Potential Phishing Emails Due To Data Leak


OpenSea, a popular NFT marketplace, has cautioned its users against falling for phishing scams. According to the head of security, an employee of a third-party vendor exploited their access to OpenSea customers’ data.


Employees of collectibles platform OpenSea warned clients of a data breach after learning that email addresses had been shared with a third party.

Cory Hardman, OpenSea’s head of security, said in a blog post published on Wednesday that a Customer.io employee had abused their access by obtaining and sharing customer data outside of the organization. He stated:

β€œIf you have shared your email with OpenSea in the past, you should assume you were impacted. We are working with Customer.io in their ongoing investigation, and we have reported this incident to law enforcement.”

Customers may be subjected to phishing attempts, in which fraudsters attempt to steal personal information by impersonating reputable businesses and using domain names similar to the official “opensea.io,” such as “opensea.org” or “opensae.io,” the NFT marketplace said.


Users of the platform have begun complaining about being bombarded with spam calls, emails, and texts.

Email data breaches in crypto firms have recently increased. As a result, bitcoin businesses must use Customer Relationship Management (CRM) software with prudence.

Earlier this year data leak of another CRM system, Hubspot, resulted in an email data breach impacting users of Circle, NYDIG, BlockFi, and Swan Bitcoin. Names and phone numbers, in addition to emails, were sent to a third party following the theft.
