Celsius Informs Users about The Leak of Their Email Addresses to Third Party

It seems that Celsius cannot find its way out of the swamp of problems. 

Celsius, a New Jersey-based cryptocurrency lending platform established in 2017, has recently informed its users about the leak of their email addresses

According to the email Celsius sent on July 26th to its customers, the leak was performed by one of the employees working in Customer.io, the automated messaging platform that Celsius has been using.

Celsius claims that this leak was a part of the same attack performed on NFTs marketplace OpeaSea, in late June. Customer.io in their post stated that five other companies have also been affected by this attack. 

As a response to these malicious actions, on July 7th Customer.io shared a detailed blog post about the actions of their senior engineer, stating: 

Despite the numerous security measures in place to safeguard our customer’s information, the employee’s position gave them unique access to these email addresses. All access has been withdrawn for this employee, who has also been fired, and reported to law enforcement.

Celsius didn’t disclose the number of emails leaked, nor the platforms to which it was given away. However, Celsius reassured the investors that the leak doesn’t pose any harm to their safety and that the company simply wanted its users to “be aware”.

However, the leak doesn’t look as innocent to the crypto community around the world. Crypto investors are using Twitter to warn Celsius customers about possible phishing attacks

This is not the first time Celsius users were targeted by malicious services. Back in April of 2021, a website pretending to be Celsius asked its users to provide personal information. Celsius explained that it happened because hackers accessed a third-party distribution system. 

In other news, Celsius has been going downhill since June when finally on July 13th they declared bankruptcy
