The well-known cryptocurrency exchange service Gemini reported a leak of customer data.
Crypto exchange Gemini announced the theft of user data as a result of a multi-day series of phishing attacks. Gemini themselves claim that their users’ deposits are safe.
“Some Gemin customers have been targeted by phishing campaigns that we believe are the result of an incident at a third-party vendor,” the exchange said in a statement.
According to the company, the hackers obtained the email addresses and incomplete phone numbers of the exchange’s clients.
Personal information about accounts, customer balances, etc. were not stolen.
Exchange users were advised to enable two-factor authentication or use other account security methods.
The exchange did not disclose the extent of the leak. More than 5.7 million users were affected by the incident, according to Cointelegraph. A database dump with a similar number of records has already been posted on specialized forums.
