Personal data of 200 people
Attackers got personal information about users of the site. We are talking about email, name, date of birth, and even selfies. From the information provided by Coincheck, 200 users of the crypto platform were affected as a result of the hacking.
According to official information, the hacker fraudulently gained access to the domain registration service, thus, he got access to users` email addresses.
To avoid financial losses, Coincheck employees changed the registration information of the affected customers right after the incident.

Note, the Coincheck crypto exchange has already become a victim of major hacker attacks in the past. Recall, in 2018, about 500 million US dollars in the NEM cryptocurrency were stolen from the Japanese site.
