A Bitcoin-based phishing campaign has targeted over 400 organizations with the intention of stealing cryptocurrency wallet passwords.

California-based security company Proofpoint discussed the campaign on Wednesday. In a blog post, the security team said that due to its unregulated nature -- and there being no backing by a central financial authority -- cryptocurrency represents a "$6.8 billion" opportunity for cybercriminals, and the latest campaign underscores the popularity of this target.
