The official Binance Jersey Twitter account was hacked by an anonymous user @LightningNetwo9. According to a hacker`s tweet on Binance Jersey, he is a security researcher with altruistic motives.
The hacker claims that he could use this to scam Binance Jersey users, especially with fishing.
Binance Jersey is one of the four independent branches of Binance, the largest cryptocurrency exchange in the world. Binance also operates exchanges in Malta, Singapore, and Uganda, and a new US office will open soon.
The hacker asked Binance CEO Changpeng Zhao to contact him directly.
The hacking on Binance’s Twitter account occurred almost three months after the successful hacking of the exchange, recall that at that time about 7000 BTC was stolen.
Binance has deleted these posts at the time of publication.
