Darknet vendor attempts to sell 100,000 hacked KYC documents from major cryptocurrency exchanges
A darknet vendor is attempting to sell 100,000 know-your-customer (KYC) documents supposedly stolen from major exchanges including Binance, Bitfinex, Bittrex, and Poloniex.
The vendor, who posts on the darknet forum ‘Dread’ under the ‘ExploitDot’ moniker, claims to have obtained details from a security breach of a third-party KYC solution provider.
Among the data available for sale is “selfies of customers,” along with “scanned documents” and “proof of address.”
The documents were listed for $10 per 100 documents, which means the entire catalogue of illicitly sourced data would sell for $10,000.
The user later added a new post stating that they would be willing to delete all of the documents if the community raised funds via a crowdfunding exchange.
