zkSync Era’s Twitter Account Hacked: Users Warned to Be Cautious

The Twitter account of zkSync Era, a layer 2 network on Ethereum, has been hacked, according to recent reports on social media. The project has advised users not to trust any information from the account until further confirmation is received.

Matter Labs, the development team behind zkSync, has confirmed the hack and stated that it is not related to their system. They are now working with Twitter support to resolve the issue.

The project team has advised users not to click on any links on the zkSync Twitter account to avoid falling victim to phishing attacks. Phishing attacks are a type of cybercrime where hackers impersonate well-known accounts and post links that trick users into granting access to their digital wallets. This allows hackers to steal their funds.

This is not the first time that a high-profile project’s Twitter account has been compromised. According to Interlock, hackers recently used the Gate.io exchange’s Twitter page to promote a fake giveaway. Users could lose their money if they followed the instructions.

Similarly, on January 25th, a group of cybercriminals hacked Robinhood’s Twitter account. The hackers then posted about fake tokens and NFTs on BNB Chain via the PancakeSwap decentralized exchange. The post has since been removed.

The security of cryptocurrency and blockchain projects is of utmost importance, and these hacks serve as a reminder that vigilance is necessary. Users should always be cautious when clicking on links and sharing personal information, even when the account is well-known.
