Poloniex Urges Users To Reset Password After Data Leak-techcryption

As many of us were busy with Christmas holiday and preparing for the new year, a cyberpunk took the opportunity to leak a list of email addresses and passwords of Poloniex users on Twitter. With regards to this matter, the US-based digital asset exchange sent an email to all the affected users, forcing them to reset their password. 

In fact, many of them thought it could be phishing and one of the users who received the email actually tweeted about it to warn others to be careful with this scam email through the twitter account @charlysatoshi. But, a few hours later Poloniex Customer Support replied to the tweet saying “This is a real email! Please reset your password for account security”.

“A couple of hours ago we discovered that someone leaked a list of email addresses and passwords on Twitter, claiming the information could be used to log in to Poloniex accounts. While almost all of the email addresses listed do not belong to Poloniex accounts, we are forcing a password reset on any email addresses that do have an account with us, including yours.”
