Bitcoin and the crypto market cap are recovering towards key resistances. Almost all cryptocurrencies are trading in a major downtrend.
But our attention is on hacking the cryptocurrency exchange Binance.
The crypto hacker behind personal user data supposedly stolen from crypto exchange Binance is planning to publish additional material. So, we can expect a new wave of leaking data.
Crypto hacker was playing his abnormal game in a series of tweets today, on August 16. A Twitter profile is known as Bnatov Platon tweeted an outline of Binance Know-Your-Customer (KYC) data supposedly he or she holds.
This was followed by other tweets.
Crypto hacker is making jokes
You will notice there is no timeframe for these screenshots but hacker or someone in his beneath showed Telegram chats with the person named as a member of Binance’s customer service team. There is no evidence that KYC images are collected from Binance.
The tone and arrogance in crypto hacker’s tweets are impressive. Bnatov Platon with handle @BnatovP joined the Twitter this month. With one purpose, obviously. To show how vulnerable private data is in some crypto exchange. Or on the internet overall.
But speaking about this particular case, as Cointelegraph reported at the beginning of August, Binance rejected any agreement to its user data. They were arguing the person behind the alleged robbery was a scam.
The Binance had one statement at that time:
“At the present time, no evidence has been supplied that indicates any KYC images have been obtained from Binance, as these images do not contain the digital watermark imprinted by our system.”
The Binance also noticed that the images all seem to be dated from February of 2018. Why is this important? At that time Binance had engaged a third-party KYC service provider to handle requests at that time.
Among other problems with hackers and scammers, this one is especially rude. Well, guys, someday, someone will catch you! As always do.
