Researchers at Flashpoint discovered a phishing site designed to steal cryptocurrency from the Jaxx wallet, a cryptocurrency storage system. The site has since been suspended.

The details: The site was meant to look like Jaxx's, and had custom-designed malware for both Mac and Windows computers.

  • The site would upload Windows malware along with the actual Jaxx software, with the malware running in the background. Custom malware stole files from a user's desktop, while bundled, widely available malware accessed other files and stole cryptocurrency account information whenever it was copied and pasted.
  • The Mac malware gave an error message in English and Russian and prompted users to provide account information that would allow the hackers to steal currency.
  • Flashpoint is aware of infections from the malware, but is not clear how users were first sent to the site.

Mitigation: Flashpoint contacted both Jaxx and the security company Cloudflare, which the site had used for users' connections. Cloudflare suspended the site.

Why it matters: This funding comes at what could be an inflection point for Instacart, as customers it acquired during coronavirus lockdowns decide whether they want to continue with the service or resume in-person grocery shopping.

Markets swell as the economy shrinks

The economy is sputtering, but the markets are thriving — a highly unusual event that shows how the coronavirus has thrown all bets off.

Why it matters: The disconnect adds to the wealth gap. The richest 10% of households — who own 84% of stocks — are getting richer, while millions of out-of-work Americans cross their fingers that pandemic unemployment benefits will be extended.
