Japanese cryptocurrency exchange Coincheck announced on Tuesday that it suffered a data breach, which may have leaked users’ emails and personal information.
The information includes name, registered address, birth date, phone number and selfie ID, said Coincheck. The breach affected around 200 customers who made email inquiries from May 31 to June 1, the exchange added.
Giving details of the breach, Coincheck said a third party unauthorizedly accessed its domain registration service and “fraudulently” accessed customer emails. The domain registration information has since been amended and there is “no impact on customers’ assets at this time,” said Coincheck.
