Data hackers

Personal data of more than 200 thousand users of crypto exchanges, applications, and wallets are put up for sale. Perhaps this is due to a hacker who hacked the database of the official Ethereum forum in 2016. According to the vulnerability monitoring service Under the Breach, an attacker offers to buy user data from Ledger and Trezor. The companies deny the leak.

The list contains data from users of the KeepKey hardware wallet, as well as BnktotheFuture, LoanBase platforms. According to other sources, the hacker advertises databases of 18 cryptocurrency exchanges and forums, including Korean Korbit and Mexican Bitso.

The hacker claims that the database contains names, physical and email addresses, as well as phone numbers. According to him, information about users Ledger, Trezor, and KeepKey was obtained due to a vulnerability in the Shopify platform through which they are sold. Trezor emphasized that they did not use Shopify to sell their products. 

How the data of users of other platforms were obtained, if his statements are correct, remains unclear.

Representatives of Ledger meanwhile declare that the database offered for sale does not correspond to the real one. Nevertheless, the French company emphasizes that it continues to investigate the incident and treats it with complete seriousness.

ShapeShift, the parent company of KeepKey, has not yet commented on the situation. Also, representatives of BnkToTheFuture and Bitso did not react to this news.

Early Data Theft

Earlier, a group of hacker-extortionists REvil promised to publish 756 GB of data, including the “dirty secrets” of US President Donald Trump. Attackers demand a payout of $ 42 million in Bitcoin or Monero. Information was obtained as a result of the hacking of the New York law firm Grubman Shire Meiselas & Sacks.
