Trouble at OpenSea as Email Vendor Employee Goes Rogue

Share This Post

NFT trading goliath, OpenSea, has once again found itself erring on the wrong side of controversy. This time around, seeing their mailing list compromised through a third-party security breach.

Despite its recent 13-billion-dollar valuation and raft of high-profile errors, security on the OpenSea platform continues to disappoint. The latest scandal saw an employee at its email delivery vendor, Customer.io, share its entire mailing list with an unauthorized external party, resulting in the details of everyone trusting this personal information with OpenSea being exposed.

Following the alarming development, OpenSea has advised its users to be on high alert for phishing activity. Therefore, it has reiterated that all its emailed correspondence will only originate from its official domain, opensea.io. In addition, the team advised its customers that it will never initiate a wallet transaction from an email, nor will it prompt users to download software or share passwords and keys. The purveying message then, to remain vigilant and always err on the side of caution.

Going forwards, OpenSea intends to conduct a thorough investigation into the incident, while additionally liaising with the relevant law enforcement authorities in order to escalate further. As of now, OpenSea has not commented on its future with the email vendor in question, Customer.io.
