Hackers Infiltrate Popular Web3 Lifestyle App, Stepn
Blockchain security firm alerts crypto users about Stepn phishing sites.
Popular blockchain security firm, Peckshield, has revealed that there are now several phishing sites for the Web3 lifestyle app (Stepn). According to Peckshield, hackers insert a fake metamask browser extension through which they can steal seed phrases of unsuspecting Stepn users.
Once these hackers steal the seed phrase, they have full access to the Stepn user’s dashboard, where they can link the hacked wallets to their wallets or “claim” a giveaway.

The popular China-based crypto journalist, Wu Blockchain, also tweeted about it to give the news wider publicity. He is the first person in the media to break the news about this incident.
