Sydney Sweeney, a prominent Hollywood actress, fell victim to a cybersecurity breach when her X (formerly Twitter) account was compromised to endorse a fraudulent Solana-based (CRYPTO:SOL) meme coin called "SWEENEY."

The attackers exploited Sweeney's fame to deceive her followers into investing in the fake cryptocurrency through misleading posts promising exclusive benefits.

Despite a surge in trading activity, the coin's value plummeted by 90% shortly after the scam was detected and removed.

This incident underscores the growing trend of cybercriminals targeting celebrity social media accounts to promote cryptocurrency scams, highlighting the importance of cautious investment practices in the digital asset space.
