According to a customer email, Gemini revealed events ascribed to a third party that resulted in a phishing operation targeting users in the United Kingdom and Europe.

Scammers have used emails and websites imitating Gemini’s logo, and the company thinks the campaigns are the product of two instances involving third-party vendors. No account information or networks were compromised, and the security of all client accounts remains unaffected.

“We are aware of two instances in which bad actors acquired the names, email addresses, and phone numbers of certain Gemini clients from two of our third-party suppliers,” the email stated, adding that the company had previously warned of one of these schemes. The exchange recently heard of a second incident that occurred last autumn.

The second instance involved “evildoers” who “phished and duped” workers of a third-party vendor into divulging their login credentials. Using the login passwords, the bad players gained access to the names, email addresses, and in some instances, partial phone numbers of Gemini clients.
