Major cryptocurrency exchange Coinsquare has confirmed the data leak of users conducting cryptocurrency exchanges before November 19.
The Canadian cryptocurrency exchange Coinsquare was hacked, but the service team claims that the tangible assets of users were not affected.
In an email to Coinsquare customers, they were informed of a personal data leak, in which the attackers became aware of the full name, email, address, date of birth, phone number, and the entire history of transactions and account balances.
On November 19, the company found this vulnerability, after which the service suspended the entire exchange of cryptocurrencies and disabled the withdrawal of funds.
They also assured all affected users that 100% of the assets are stored in cold wallets and are not affected by the attack.
The normal operation of the exchange was restored only by November 26, however, some of the functionality is still not available to users
As practice shows, recently many exchanges have been attacked. Therefore, if you need a simple cryptocurrency exchange, it will be safest to use small online exchangers, such as Paynote.ru.
