Self-Proclaimed Binance Hacker Warns: New Wave of Data Leaks Is Coming
The hacker behind private user data allegedly stolen from cryptocurrency exchange Binance is preparing to release further material.
Hacker “warming up” for leak
In a series of tweets on Aug. 16, the Twitter account known as Bnatov Platon published an outline of Binance Know-Your-Customer (KYC) records allegedly in his or her possession.
“Warming up,” an accompanying commentary reads.
While no timeframe was given for the potential release, the hacker included records of Telegram chats, including with a user described as a member of Binance’s customer service team.
Another appeared to show an attempt to trick the hacker into visiting a dangerous website address, under the guise of the address containing fresh KYC data.
No evidence that KYC images obtained from Binance
The events lead on from the original hack scare which occurred earlier this month. As Cointelegraph reported at the time, Binance denied any compromise to its user data, arguing the entity behind the alleged theft was a fraud.
While investigations are ongoing, no official representative from the exchange has formally acknowledged any issue.
“At the present time, no evidence has been supplied that indicates any KYC images have been obtained from Binance, as these images do not contain the digital watermark imprinted by our system,” a statement released on Aug. 7 reads.
The exchange also noted that the images all appear to be dated from February of 2018 when Binance had contracted a third-party KYC service provider to handle the high volume of requests at that time.
Cointelegraph has reached out to Binance for comment, but did not receive a response as of press time Friday.

Superstar Player, Japanese Language Group - July 2019
2. Increase number of community members
3. Implementation of campaign
4. Translation of articles
Implementation of campaign, translation and management. Everything is being done by one person. However, recently community members have been voluntarily helping out by translating and writing articles. The community appears to be warm and magnificent.
Below is a brief report on the activities for July 2019.
2. Increase in number of community members: (monthly transition from April)
FullNode total number: 2→13→28→159
3. Implementation of campaign
7/15~7/30 Budget of 400,000VCP divided equally between full node operators
・Operation of full node
・Entry to be made by July 25th
・Entry can be made by sending PM to the admin (Display VCP address and name of node)
・Operation of node when there is confirmation of irregularity of implementation on numerous occasions
・Show screenshot for this month’s compensation history by the 27th
Result of implementation:
Number of new participants for full node has increased by five. Compared to the previous measurement, it has been confirmed that the number of full nodes has increased greatly.
It was possible to converse with all the eco system contributors by having a PM sent using a telegram when making an entry. (This also means to confirm that the participants are Japanese.)
Among the contributors, there were also people who showed interest in ViteX operator and super node and it was possible to check each identity.
Implementation when necessary: Giving VCP to community members that have shown contribution through active conduct. For example, taking part in this month’s ViteX simulation trade competition, give VCP to each respective member that reached 6th place for the trade section and 5th place for the VX section.
Since August is just prior to the launch of mainnet, implementation of large scale marketing is planned using specialist crypto media within Japan.
The Japanese community places more importance on visible contribution rather than the number of people.
Announcements and official Medium and Forum articles published by Vite or ViteX are all translated by one person.
Each introduction is omitted since it includes everything.
Donation to the superstar program will be made in the 3rd month.
More so than receiving compensation, the monthly community report is considered a duty.
ViteX launches in July and mining also commences in August.
After this, the countdown of mainnet should perhaps start.
Let’s all work together more than ever before as team members of Vite and lead project Vite to success.
