As a result of the attack, users’ email addresses and other personal information were recorded in the network
Japanese cryptocurrency exchange Coincheck announced a data leak as a result of a hacker attack – the network obtained email addresses and other personal information of users, including names, registered addresses, dates of birth, phone numbers, and user-identifying selfies . In total, hacking affected about 200 customers who contacted via email from 31 May to 1 June.
According to exchange representatives, the attackers managed to gain access to the domain registration service and seized the customers’ email addresses with “fraud”. Shortly thereafter, domain registration information was changed and there is currently no threat to user assets.
After the hack, Coincheck suspended all transfers, while other services, such as trade, deposits and withdrawals, remained active.
