Hacker Attack Through Firefox was Directed Against Coinbase Employees

A recent hacker attack through Firefox browser was targeted to not only to users but also to Coinbase employees.

The vulnerability in the popular Mozilla Firefox browser was discovered by the Coinbase Security team and Google security researcher Samuel D. Gross on Monday. 

“On Monday, Coinbase detected and blocked an attempt by attackers to access the Firefox system and target Coinbase employees,” said Philip Martin Twitter, member of Coinbase security team.

The Mozilla company has released a patch that “fixed a bug.” Then Mozilla Firefox urged users to update the version without hesitation. 

It is still unclear how the hacking occurred. However, Coinbase security team coped well with the attack, updated the security system, and warned its users and employees in time.
