After hackers infiltrated one of crypto data company Nansen’s third-party vendors, they were able to steal a large portion of customer information from the company.
Nansen Admitted Social media platform X said in an announcement Friday about the attack that a vendor breach allowed hackers to gain access to administrative privileges on accounts used to provide customer access on its platform.
Nansen said a preliminary investigation found that hackers had compromised the personal information of 6.8% of users.
“These users had their email addresses published, some of them also had their password hashes published, and the last smallest group also had their blockchain addresses published. We emailed our users to ask if they were affected. , and notified how they were affected.”
Nansen claims that the third-party vendor is an “established company” used by multiple Fortune 500 companies and others in the cryptocurrency industry. He said the data company had asked the vendor to disclose the breach, but it was unclear at the time of writing which company that was.
Nansen says users’ wallet funds are not affected because they do not request their private keys, but the company is encouraging affected customers to change their passwords and warning them to be wary of phishing attacks. ing.
