Bug causes Google to list malicious websites in searches for ‘Coinmarketcap’

Binance‘s CEO Changpeng Zhao tweeted to warn that Google displays phishing websites when users search for CoinMarket Cap. Zhao said users who try to add smart contract addresses to their MetaMask wallets are the ones that get most affected by this error.

According to Zhao, the Binance security team detected the problem and is trying to reach out to Google to fix the issue. At the time of writing, Google hasn’t returned or made any changes. A total of 39 incidents were included in the report, which didn’t include phishing attacks. But they have been growing in number, effect, and sophistication. The community also noticed their spread as they became the newest form of high-tech fraud.
