Russia became the leader in the number of cryptocurrency threats

The most popular method of deception is fake investment platform websites, where potential investors are lured with aggressive advertising tools.

In Russia, a surge in the interest of fraudsters in the owners of crypto wallets was recorded, despite the fact that all over the world in the period from May to August of this year, a decrease in cryptocurrency threats by 23.6% was registered against the background of falling rates of Bitcoin, Monero and Ethereum. This was reported by the press service of the international developer of information security solutions ESET.

“Today, every tenth cryptocurrency scam occurs in Russia (10% of all detected cases), in second place is Peru (6.8% of the total), in third place is the United States (5.3%),” in the press service of the company.

It is noted that the most common way of deception is fake sites of investment sites, where potential investors in cryptocurrency are lured by aggressive advertising. In addition, the researchers found the method is growing in popularity, involving the names of celebrities who allegedly invest in digital money and urge fans to do the same.

As explained by the head of the ESET threat detection laboratory, Jiri Kropach, hackers create high-quality fakes of the pages of famous people on social networks, spend a lot of money on them, and then arrange mailings on phishing resources on their behalf. New customers are asked to make a deposit or immediately spend a large amount on the purchase of cryptocurrency, and those who already have cryptocurrency wallets are trying to persuade them to share their account credentials under the pretext of further growth in profitability.

It is noted that sites with content for adults, as well as free streaming portals, torrent sites and thematic cryptocurrency forums, remain sites for distributing software that is designed specifically to steal cryptocurrencies or hijack users’ devices in order to secretly mine currency.
