Loss of Privacy
Binance, the world's largest cryptocurrency exchange by trading volume, said it's investigating the alleged leak of its customers' verification information. The leak could affect up to 60,000 individual users who sent KYC information to the company in 2018 and 2019. This data leak is said to be directly related to a hack that nabbed 7,000 bitcoin last May. A Telegram group created by an admin under the pseudonym "Guardian M" distributed hundreds of images of individuals holding their IDs and pieces of paper written with "Binance, 02/24/18," alleging that the data presented was hacked from the exchange. The hacker supplied CoinDesk with hundreds of photographs and we have identified a number of users who recognize the photos of their faces and personal IDs that they sent into Binance for know-your-customer purposes.
