Phishing attacks are becoming increasingly prevalent in the cryptocurrency space. The techniques employed by attackers are also becoming increasingly sophisticated. New mediums, such as private messages on Slack channels and Telegram groups, are being taken advantage of by attackers to launch phishing campaigns.
