Blockstack ICO defended the potential victims of phishing by counterattack on the scam sites

Criminals' technical ineptitude allowed the team to place the warnings right on the homepage banner of the phishing sites

When the Blockstack team limited the token sales only to accredited investors, immediately several sites sprung up, promising the chance to get on one of the most anticipated ICOs of the end of 2017.

But the mask of looking exactly the same played a key role in later counterattack by the legitimate ICO team. The criminals copied all the code from the original website, including the header banner, which was connected to the Blockstack server. Its main role was to feed the header with adapted tweets from the company's Tweeter account.

When the developers suddenly found, that not only their website was requesting the info, but two others, they performed, effectively, man-in-the-middle attack on the scam sites, changing the banner feed from tweets to “THIS IS A PHISHING SITE” message.

Right now the legal action against the perpetrators is taking place, but one of the sites is still functioning, if redesigned to remove the implicating banner. So, customers, beware.

Blockstack is widely regarded as one of the most desirable ICOs this fall. Their project aims at creating decentralised app network for better privacy and security of the end-user's data. With over 75000 registered domains and more than 12000 developers in the community, it shapes to be a successful venture with quite a bright future ahead.
