Coinbase Blocks Long-Con Hacking Attempt


After a handful of Coinbase employees received an email from Gregory Harris, the research grants administrator at the University of Cambridge, on May 30, many of them engaged in conversation with “Harris” for a few weeks. It wasn’t until June 17 that the email scammer attempted to send a message containing malware capable of taking over someone’s computer. Luckily, Coinbase’s security system was able to detect the threat before any funds were lost.
