Bitmex exposes users’ email addresses to other users

posted 18 days ago
Cryptocurrency derivatives exchange BitMEX sent a mass email today to its users with their email addresses in the "To" field. BitMEX says its internal processes “failed” subsequently exposing thousands of the exchange’s clients to privacy risks.

A Twitter user with the handle @sakuraricebird shared screenshots of the email, which shows several email IDs of BitMEX’s customers. The exchange said the exchange’s email systems API was changed at the last minute, but did not undergo the typical checking process.
