These blockchain.info phishing sites are popping up like weeds.

They seem to work because I keep hearing about people who don't use 2FA getting their accounts cleared out.

People who use blockchain.info for their wallet need to be extra careful about security.

Yeah, usually see at least a few every month. I guess it's an easy scam really.

the closest attempt was the phishing twitter account that had more followers than the original one.

Wouldn't be so much of it if it wasn't so lucrative.

I've always used inspect element on random links.

One of the worst ones that happened a little while ago was the one that was a google ad. When you googled blockchain.info an ad would be the first thing listed which said it was a link to blockchain.info. And google search links are all forwarded through a google tracking url so you don't even see what url you're actually going to.

I found out about it after someone on here posted that they got their wallet cleaned out. Sad Personally I try to avoid web wallets. Lots more ways you can lose your BTC.

This is why checking the HTTPS info in your web browser before logging in is so important. Unfortunately, I'm not as good about that as I should be.
