Coinbase Employees Targeted in Mozilla Firefox Zero-Day Attacks2

Coinbase security expert Philip Martin confirmed as much on Wednesday, describing in a post-mortem Twitter thread how the malicious agent used a reported and initially unreported zero-day vulnerability in an attempt to “target Coinbase employees.”
