Crypto Industry Targeted Attack

🚨Malicious hackers are coming up with more complex ways to steal, and they are targeting the cryptocurrency industry! A weaponized Excel file was found to contain an advanced 4-step process to allow the attacker to remotely take control of your device, but first, the actor goes through elaborate means to gain trust in hopes that once this infected file is shared, it is opened.

The threat actor posed as representatives of another cryptocurrency investment company, and in October 2022 invited the target to a different chat group and pretended to ask for feedback on the fee structure used by cryptocurrency exchange platforms. The threat actor had a broader knowledge of this specific part of the industry, indicating that they were well prepared and aware of the current challenge the targeted companies may have. - Microsoft Security Threat Intelligence

SafeMoon CEO John Karony and the SafeMoon Discord community teased about the recent misinformation around SafeMoon Orbital Shield.

"So the person logged into their account…But did it with extra steps? I mean do they not like the UI? There are easier ways to log into your own account…like just using the login screen." "If they don't like the UI, please submit the feedback to zendesk 🙂"

"I was given keys to a hotel room I booked and just like that, I was able to walk to the room. Serious security hole"
"I was able to get into my car using the key. Hax."

Food For Thought

If you do not spend time getting to know yourself, you will end up absorbing everyone else's conflicting ideas about you. Knowing who you are on a very deep & intimate level is the best way to protect yourself from internalizing disempowering opinions from others.


Go after your dream, no matter how unattainable others think it is.

Blockchain Origin - Merkle Trees

The Merkle tree, which was conceptualized by Ralph Merkle of Stanford University in 1980, is frequently used in peer-to-peer (P2P) networks to address computing and memory space needs. It would not be an exaggeration to argue that Merkle trees contributed significantly to the success of blockchain technology.

Why are Merkle Tress Important?

Merkle Tress play a huge role in the efficiency of Blockchain Technology, Without Merkle Trees the Blockchain verification & integral process of transactions would take up too much space and take far too long.

What is a Merkle Tree?

The Merkle tree is a type of binary hash tree with 3 different nodes: leaf nodes, non-leaf nodes, and root nodes. Merkle trees are helpful for maintaining and verifying transaction integrity in any decentralized ledger and are can be found in both the Bitcoin and Ethereum chains.

To read more about Merkle trees take a look at this article or view the video below.
