It looks like the hacker allegedly behind the Binance data hack is ready to unveil more leaked information soon. On a recent tweet, the criminal nicknamed only as Bnatov Platon, affirmed that he was only warming up and that there was a lot more to come yet.
The cybercriminal also published an outline of the Know Your Customer process of the company and included some Telegram records to prove that he had the information. He did not give any timeframe for the release of any other possible leaks, though.
At the moment, however, there is simply no evidence that the hacker actually has the images that he claims on his hands. The hacking of the exchange happened at the beginning of August, but Binance denies that any information was actually taken.
According to the company, the hacker was unable to access any of the data, so what was posted online was fake. The exchange is still during its investigations, though, so the issue is still not ended. The only official statement is that no evidence shows that the hacker may have invaded the KYC images, especially because the leaked images lack the Binance watermark.
The exchange also highlighted that all the images are dated from February 2018 and that this was around the time in which the company hired a third-party to handle KYC. This means that the third-party may have been hacked instead of the company.
At the moment, we can only wait before we determine if the alleged hacker will indeed have some more material or if the information of Binance’s clients is protected.
