Coingecko’s X Accounts Compromised to Announce Fake Token Airdrop

Hackers briefly took over the official X accounts of major crypto data aggregator Coingecko to promote a fake token launch and airdrop. The Coingecko incident became the second X hack within 24 hours after the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission’s account was also compromised. Coingecko announced the news of the hack in an X post on Jan. 10, warning users not to click or engage any suspicious links. The platform further said it would carry out investigations and secure its X accounts. The latest incident comes on the heels of a recent hack involving the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC).
