Yesterday, Poloniex cryptocurrency exchange sent an email to some of its users alerting them about a potential security breach after an alleged list containing Poloniex’s users email addresses and passwords was posted on twitter, which could be used by hackers to gain access to their Poloniex accounts.
While almost all of the email addresses listed do not belong to Poloniex accounts, we are forcing a password reset on any email addresses listed that do have an account with us, including yours.the exchange wrote in its email notification to the affected users.
It’s unclear how the email addresses and passwords were posted on Twitter in the first place and what percentage of the leaked data contained current data from Poloniex customers. That left many users bewildered whether the leak is real or not.
The daily trading volume on Poloniex exchange is $138,972,143, which makes it within the top 50 cryptocurrency exchanges.
Last November, TRON founder Justin Sun confirmed that he was one of the investors who acquired Poloniex from Circle group.
