Phishing attempts are on the rise in the TON ecosystem, causing concern among users. Exploiting the open nature of the Telegram ecosystem, phishing links and deceptive bots are spreading through message groups and airdrops. These tactics aim to steal users’ TON wallets, which may contain valuable assets like NFTs and Anonymous Telegram Numbers, used for creating accounts. Without Two-Step Verification enabled, users risk losing their corresponding Telegram account if these numbers are compromised.

A recent incident highlights the growing threat posed by phishing. According to PeckShieldAlert, the address 0xfb94…ccfa was targeted by #Fake_Phishing187019, resulting in the loss of $11.2 million in cryptocurrencies. The stolen assets included 3,657.26 $aETHMKR worth approximately $8.76 million, as well as 1.245 million PT-sUSDE-26SEP2024 and 1.3 million PT-sUSDE-25JUL2024.

The escalation of phishing activities in the TON ecosystem is concerning. Users are urged to be cautious and enable Two-Step Verification to safeguard their accounts. With phishing methods remaining consistent, it is crucial for users to remain vigilant against potential threats.
