Poloniex denies suffering a data leak after resetting some users’ passwords

posted 15 days ago
Crypto exchange Poloniex clarified that it didn’t suffer a data leak, days after resetting its users’ passwords over a leak on social media. It emailed around 1% of its users earlier this week over the leak seen via Twitter, which claimed to contain leaked email addresses and passwords of Poloniex users.

The exchange noted nearly all of the email addresses within the leak did not belong to Poloniex customers, but it was nevertheless “forcing a password reset on any email address” that has an account with it.
