FTX Reports Cybersecurity Breach Involving Claims Agent Kroll
Defunct cryptocurrency exchange FTX has reported that its bankruptcy case claims agency, Kroll, had a cybersecurity breach that resulted in the exposure of limited, non-sensitive customer data of specific claimants. According to FTX, the situation is being actively monitored to ensure that funds, systems, and account passwords are not impacted.
Kroll Working With Affected Individuals
Kroll is currently educating those affected by the cybersecurity incident about the precautions they may take to ensure their security. However, FTX made it clear that their systems and account passwords are safe. Additionally, debtors have opened a line of communication with Kroll and are closely monitoring the situation as it develops.
Data Breach Impacting Bankruptcy Case
Consumers of FTX have already received bogus emails and their personal data has been hacked according to blockchain researcher ZachXBT. Celsius Network also experienced a similar data breach which resulted in the exposure of customers’ email records and has had a significant impact on its bankruptcy restructuring process.
FTX Recommends Prevention Measures
FTX recommends vigilance against fake or scam emails pretending to be from companies going through bankruptcy proceedings. Consumers should take appropriate measures such as keeping track of system activity or changing their accounts‘ passwords for extra protection.
FTX’s recent cybersecurity breach involving its claims agent Kroll affects businesses both internally as well as externally resulting in potential financial losses due to exposed customer data as well as decreased trust between customers and creditors alike. To avoid future similar incidents, companies must prioritize cyber security practices while also providing proper support measures for customers who have been affected by cyber attacks or fraudulent activities related to them.
