Crypto currency investors have been promoting the friend.tech platform on social media for the past few days. Today, it was revealed that the platform has been hacked. The crypto platform, which was exploited through API, could not prevent the leakage of data of 101 thousand users. The data was published on GitHub.
Banteg, who contributed to Yearn Finance, published a leaked database containing critical user data on the friend.tech platform as a GitHub repository. This database includes the Ethereum addresses of more than 101,000 users and their corresponding Twitter usernames.
Banteg’s actions went beyond the data pool. Banteg also emphasized a problematic situation regarding the permissions of friend.tech, claiming that these users gave permission to friend.tech to share posts on their behalf.
