Over the past few years more than 600,000 people have had their personally identifying information leaked. This information was provided to companies for KYC/AML purposes, but was retained and mishandled leading to the KYC documents being exposed.
KYC documents may include the user’s full names, home addresses, phone number, passport, photo, driving license, DOB, wallet addresses, balances, transactions, and IP address.
These leaks put the users in danger and could face the threat of violence and robbery following these “doxing” events. Some victims have reported being threatened via phone and email.
