On July 2, 2018, TREZOR announced on its blog that its wallet service was being attacked. According to the blog, the TREZOR support team was discovered when a customer inquired about a fraudulent SSL certificate. The image when accessing the fake phishing site published by TREZOR is as follows, and the domain displayed in the URL is the same as the correct site '', but for https communication You can see that the SSL certificate you are using is incorrect and you see 'Not secure' in your browser's address bar.

The method used for the attack is not yet known, but it is said that

DNS cache poisoning and BGP hijacking can be considered because the fake site was accessed even if the correct URL was entered. BGP hijacking is an attack used to hijack Internet traffic and was used in 2017 and 2018 in the following incidents:

Not only can you check if the URL of the website you are visiting is correct, but you can also check if the site you visited is really the site with that URL by using https (SSL) for communication. TREZOR has commented on twitter, 'Be sure to make sure that you are communicating with legitimate https.'

If you connect to the fake site via https, you will get a certificate error, but if you connect to http, you will not be able to notice that you have connected to the fake site. Google has announced a policy to make the Chrome browser display 'insecure' when connecting via http.
