Ripple wallet and gateway-as-a-service provider GateHub has warned that there is a phishing scam campaign targeting its crypto wallet users

Ripple (XRPwallet and gateway-as-a-service provider GateHub has warned that there is a phishing scam campaign targeting its cryptocurrency wallet users, as per an announcement on June 13.

According to the announcement, GateHub’s wallet users are being sent malicious emails from addresses that look like they are from GateHub: “@gatehub.com” and “@gatehub.net.”

The emails instruct the users to transfer their funds to a “secure” wallet, which is owned by the attacker, because their private keys are allegedly compromised due to insufficient security precautions.

GateHub notes that, in addition to the attack being an unaffiliated phishing attempt, the service provider never issues private keys via email. GateHub also published a timeline of its correspondences to customers, so that they can verify whether emails received from GateHub are genuine.
