Mimecast: How to Protect One’s Crypto From Phishing

Mimecast: How to Protect One’s Crypto From Phishing

NEW YORK - August 31, 2022 - (Newswire.com)

Cybercriminals have targeted the cryptocurrency community since bitcoin's inception, and many crypto owners are falling prey to schemes like phishing

What is phishing? 

Phishing is a digital crime where cybercriminals aim to steal a user's private information. Scammers deploy their attack by disguising themselves as trusted organizations or entities to trick a user into mindlessly handing over details like their Social Security number, credit card information, bank credentials, and in this case, crypto wallet details. 

Use Multi-factor authentication 

There is no surefire way to keep cybercriminals from attempting to breach an organization's system. However, it is possible to make it harder for attackers to succeed in obtaining sensitive information. Multi-factor authentication (MFA) is an easy passive approach for users to secure their crypto wallets. 

MFA adds an extra layer of protection on top of passwords for both an organization and an employee. So, a password will not be enough even if a user falls victim to a phishing scam. 

Avoid fraudulent emails 

Remember, if something looks too good, it probably is. Over 270,000 Ledger wallet users had their emails extracted in 2020. Phishing attacks, like the breach against Ledger users, promise free wallets that are secretly compromised. 

Messages that are urgent or prompt a speedy response may also be phishing scams. Other phishing messages may state that if a user does not act now, their account with whatever legitimate organization the attackers are impersonating will be suspended. 

Most reliable companies will offer ample time for customers to get their affairs in order. However, it is best to ignore such messages as this is a favorite method for cybercriminals. When in doubt, contact the source directly to clarify the matter instead of interacting with the potentially fraudulent message. 

Also, users should scrutinize emails with a sharp eye — especially ones with such grand requests and promises. Keeping an eye on the email's domain and checking for spelling mistakes could be the telltale signs a user needs to identify the phishing scam. 

Keep the private keys secure 

Users must keep their private keys, the line of letters and numbers used to access their cryptocurrency that resembles a password, private. 

A user's private key is something that they should never disclose. 

Use an email filter 

To protect against spam messages, users and organizations can use a spam filter that can effectively assess the message's origin and the software used to send the message. In addition, a spam filter may determine whether a message is spam or not based on its appearance. 

Email filters are the first line of defense against phishing scams of all sorts and will actively scan any emails going through a user's server for spam, malware, and malicious attachments and links. 

Prepare! Prepare! Prepare! 

The success of phishing attacks hangs on the preparedness and education of the target. Security awareness training on how phishing scams work can go a long way in keeping a company's and a user's crypto safe.

LOS ANGELES - August 30, 2022 - (Newswire.com)

Sun West Mortgage Company, Inc. (www.swmc.com) CEO Pavan Agarwal is set to attend and speak at this year's The Science of Blockchain Conference 2022 (SBC '22). Co-organized by the Stanford Center for Blockchain Research (CBR) and IC3, the conference will be held at Stanford University, Aug. 29-31, 2022. 

Since their founding in 1980, Sun West Mortgage Company, Inc. ("Sun West"), a national leader in Mortgage Originations and Serving, has been committed to core values of people, experience, technology, and product. Now, after years of development, Sun West has recently launched the newest iteration of their proprietary AI platform, MORGAN™, which is redefining blockchain technology, banking tech and the mortgage industry. 

Powered by Sun West's sister technology company Celligence (www.celligence.com) and the mass adoption and introduction of blockchain innovation, MORGAN™ reverses what we know of the traditional home buying processes. Sun West's novel application of open ledger technology is ground-breaking and truly advances how real estate sales are transacted and completed.

Pavan Agarwal, founder and CEO of Sun West & Celligence, will attend this year's SBC'22 conference and take to the stage to detail just how Sun West's MORGAN™ employs blockchain technology to convert mortgages into NFTs, thereby removing traditional home buying hurdles, especially for underserved communities.

Marking how the company's latest advanced technology loan product seeks to reach independent, truthful lending and larger equality in the real estate market with built-in blockchain technology, Agarwal will showcase how MORGAN™ is truly one-of-its-kind, and nothing like you've seen before - you will not want to miss it! 

Now in its fifth year, The Science of Blockchain Conference focuses on technical innovations in the blockchain ecosystem and brings together researchers and practitioners working in the space. The event will showcase the application of cryptography, decentralized protocols, formal methods and empirical analysis to improve the security and scalability of blockchain deployments.  

The conference hosts affiliated workshops related to cryptography, distributed systems and secure computing by fostering collaboration among practitioners and researchers working on blockchain technology. It welcomes the very best in the world of blockchain and crypto space to be program speakers. The full speaker program can be found here.

Mr Agarwal explained "The Framers of the US Constitution understood that land ownership is the path to true political and economic freedom. Although much work is still to be done to achieve universal fair housing & lending, the American system has intentionally distributed property ownership across a broad section of the population. My implementation of the blockchain in Morgan™ is a decentralized platform that increases the accessibility, agility, and transparency of trading real estate amongst Americans and strengthens our Republic. Real estate ownership is deliberately distributed, and I have created Morgan™ so that control of property rights can never fall into the hands of the few."

The conference is free to attend in-person and remotely via live-stream. For full event information visit https://cbr.stanford.edu/sbc22.

Planet Mojo Metaverse Begins Private Playtests for Launch Title Mojo Melee

Players will battle in multiplayer pre-alpha testing of the autochess title's PvP gameplay.

BOSTON - August 17, 2022 - (Newswire.com)

Planet Mojo, the hotly anticipated Web3 gaming metaverse developed by Mystic Moose, will kick off pre-alpha playtests for their first title, Mojo Melee. Early supporters will be able to participate in scheduled live playtests throughout the rest of August. Mojo Melee is Planet Mojo's first game in its mythical metaverse, in which players control teams consisting of magical creatures called Mojos and a range of Champions with diverse abilities to go head-to-head in a new autochess title, a type of chess-like strategy game.

  • Initial Mojo Melee playtests will be open to Planet Mojo NFT holders.
  • Feedback from the playtests will help Planet Mojo's developers refine all facets of Mojo Melee's player experience.
  • A Premint campaign begins today for a free "VIP Playtest Pass" NFT that will grant additional gamers access to playtests in September.

The pre-alpha playtests for Mojo Melee will be organized in an 8-player, PvP format and introduce the game's core mechanics. Playtesters will be able to select from pre-configured teams that each include a Mojo, 4 Champions, and 2 SpellStones that enable Mojos to channel offensive or defensive magical abilities.

Two to three sessions per week will be organized for Mojo Melee's pre-alpha playtesters pitting players head-to-head in fast-paced matches. Each session will last for 45 to 60 minutes and involve multiple matches. The pre-alpha playtesting will be conducted in Mojo Melee's WebGL build, meaning it will only be available through web browsers, on desktops. Mobile and downloadable versions are in the works.

Planet Mojo is recruiting a cohort of playtesters from existing Mojo NFT holders. In addition, a Premint campaign to distribute "VIP Playtest Pass" NFTs is launching today. Passholders will be able to participate in live playtest sessions in the upcoming weeks.

As a project that is always open to hearing from our supporters, we can't wait to receive feedback from our players so that Mojo Melee can be fine-tuned for the best possible experience," said Mike Levine, CEO and Founder of Mystic Moose.
