Nansen warned of user data leakage


Emails, password hashes and some wallet addresses of 6.8% of users of the Nansen analytics platform were leaked to the public.

According to the statement, the leak occurred as a result of a compromise of a third-party data provider. The attacker took over the administrator panel, through which rights for accounts were configured, company representatives said.

Nansen did not name the third party, but called on the culprit to publicly disclose the problem. At the same time, the company clarified that many Fortune 500 companies use the services of this supplier.

Platform users were advised to change their passwords and beware of phishing emails.

The Nansen team is currently investigating. Unauthorized access to the service has been suspended for some time.

Earlier, the collapsed FTX exchange reported a leak of user data. Non-confidential information of some clients was obtained through the restructuring agent Kroll.

Let us remind you that in August the data of 100,000 X users who linked their account to the Web3 social network Friend.Tech got into the network.
