Unfortunately, one of the team members fell victim to this coordinated operation, which resulted in the bad guy being able to take over the account in about 30 hours.

Yesterday, Metis used the company’s prominent X (formerly Twitter) account as the launchpad for a phishing campaign. However, soon the situation came to light when one of the key executives, Elena Sinelnikova, revealed that the platform’s security had been breached.
