Malta Crypto Exchange Hacked ?

Malta-based cryptocurrency exchange Binance has become a victim of a ransom demand from a scammer who claimed to have hacked the KYC (Know Your Customer) data of thousands of its customers. The unknown attacker threatened the world's largest cryptocurrency exchange by volume to release KYC information of 10,000 users if the company did not pay 300 Bitcoins—that's equivalent to almost $3.5 million at today's exchange value.

 

Binance is disputing the hack and is offering a 25 BTC reward to anyone who provides information related to the identity of the blackmailer.
