OpenSea Reports Email Data Breach

An employee at an outside contractor tasked with managing OpenSea email newsletters copied the list of customer emails and shared it with an outside party, OpenSea says.

Watch out for phishing emails, says OpenSea, after staff at the world’s largest NFT marketplace discovered that an employee of Customer.io, a platform for managing email newsletters and campaigns, leaked the list of OpenSea customers’ emails to an outside party.

  • Users of these platforms had their names, phone numbers and email addresses leaked to an outside party.
