Recent trends in emerging applications have motivated researchers to design advanced wireless systems to meet their evolving requirements. These emerging applications include digital healthcare, intelligent transportation systems, Industry 5.0, and more. To address the evolving requirements, leveraging a metaverse to empower $6$G wireless systems is a viable solution. A metaverse-empowered $6$G wireless system can offer numerous benefits, but it may also be vulnerable to a wide variety of security attacks. In this survey, we discuss potential security attacks in metaverse-empowered $6$G wireless systems. We introduce an architecture designed to enhance security within metaverse-empowered $6$G wireless systems. This architecture comprises two key spaces: the meta space and the physical space. We present physical space attacks and outline effective solutions to secure metaverse-empowered $6$G wireless systems. We provide invaluable insights and discussions on meta space attacks, along with promising solutions. Finally, we discuss open challenges and provide future recommendations.
