Hackers Access Client Data on Bitcoin (BTC) Investing Platforms Following Third-Party Breach

Two notable players in the crypto investing space are responding after a malicious actor gained access to customer data through internet marketing company HubSpot.

Among the over two dozen HubSpot clients affected was the crypto lending platform BlockFi, which took to Twitter to inform customers about the extent of the data breach and what users can do to protect their data.

“HubSpot has confirmed that an unauthorized third-party gained access to certain BlockFi client data housed on their platform.

BlockFi’s internal systems and client funds are safeguarded and were not impacted. We can also confirm that BlockFi account passwords, government-issued ID numbers and social security numbers were never stored on HubSpot.”

BlockFi encourages strong passwords and enabling two-factor authorization to protect against phishing and hacks.

Also impacted by the HubSpot data breach was Bitcoin (BTC) investing and savings platform Swan Bitcoin.

CEO Cory Klippsten also shared details about the situation via Twitter, saying,

“A bad actor gained access to HubSpot data after a HubSpot employee account was compromised.

We use HubSpot for limited client communication and marketing data. We do not use HubSpot to store financial information, transactions, or other sensitive personal or financial information.

Your funds are safe. Your Bitcoin is not at risk. Swan’s systems were not compromised.”

Customer information that was possibly exposed includes personal names, email addresses and phone numbers.

Klippsten also encourages customers to practice vigilance to safeguard their accounts and passwords from potential malicious interference.
