A former employee of Huobi Wallet is being investigated by the police after setting up a Trojan virus that resulted in the leak of some user mnemonics and private keys of iToken, the wallet platform's rebranded version.
iToken, formerly known as Huobi Wallet, is a cryptocurrency wallet that allows users to store, send, and receive digital assets. The platform also offers a variety of other features, such as staking and trading.
The Trojan virus was reportedly set up by the former employee in order to steal user funds. The virus was spread through a phishing email that appeared to be from iToken. When a user clicked on the link in the email, the Trojan virus was downloaded and installed on their computer.
Once the Trojan virus was installed, it would steal the user's iToken wallet mnemonics and private keys. This would allow the attacker to access the user's wallet and steal their funds.
iToken has warned its users about the Trojan virus and has advised them to change their wallet passwords and enable two-factor authentication. The company has also said that it is working with the police to investigate the matter.
This incident is a reminder of the importance of cybersecurity. Users should be careful about what emails they open and what links they click on. They should also use strong passwords and enable two-factor authentication on all of their accounts.
