Hacker claimed to have private data of Binance and Coinbase users

An anonymous hacker claimed to have access to private user data on various exchange services

An anonymous hacker claimed to have access to private user data on various services, including exchanges such as Coinbase and Binance.

According to one report, this claim appears to be true. The hacker in question has access to an account associated with the “KodexGlobal” platform, which has the power to request user information from companies.

The report details that the hacker is trading access to this account for $5,000. In addition, it offers the possibility to request emergency data from the Service of Interest (EDR) for $300.

With this access, interested parties can get information from people on LinkedIn, Discord, Tinder, SendGrid, and other services. Crypto platforms such as Binance, Coinbase and Chainlink stand out in particular.

Unlike other types of attacks, this modality does not directly compromise the security of the sites and services identified. However, the use of fake or stolen credentials allows access to customers’ private information, making them possible targets for attacks and phishing campaigns.

The KodexGlobal account is used for communications and requests related to regulators and legal agencies.

Those who have control over this account can write to any service and request information about users, citing legal justification. It is believed that access to this session was obtained through a vulnerability in the file transfer software known as MOVEit.
