Phishing is a type of social engineering attack; a fraudulent attempt to obtain sensitive information such as username, password, 2FA code, etc by disguising as Binance in electronic communication.

1. Phishing Email Example 1

This email below was created by hackers to steal the user’s email account, password and 2FA backup key

  • Phished email was sent from a scam  Binance <do-not-reply19@www--binance.com> addressmceclip0.png
  • If you hover over the Verify Email button, you can see the phished link which in this case was  
    https://www--binance.com/binance/login.php?id=xxxx@axxxxl.xxm.  After clicking the button one can see this page:mceclip1.png
  • Unfortunately, some victims will fill in their Binance email account and password data on the scam ‘www--binance.com’ website. After clicking the Log In button, the hacker will have prepared a special dialog window as seen below:mceclip2.png
  • It is really unfortunate that some victims will decide to disclose their ‘2FA backup keys’ without hesitation. At this point, the hacker will have successfully collected the victim’s username/password/2FA - thus gained full access to the victim’s accounts.

2.  Phishing Email Example 2

  • The phishing email below persuaded users to download a fake PDF file which was actually malware/virus/Trojan software.                                                                     mceclip3.png

3. Phishing Email Example 3

The phishing email below instructed users to click a malicious link in order to receive a nonexistent 0.129 BTC.

Please note:

When you notice such a message, it’s always best to hover over the link to see where it points.
