Data from 1.4 million GateHub crypto-wallet users has entered the network, according to Ars Technica, referring to Troy Hunt, security researcher at Have I Been Pwned. According to him, the database posted on the hacker forum includes email addresses, passwords and other personal information of the company’s customers.

The attacker who posted the archive with the stolen data claims that it also contains two-factor authentication keys, mnemonic phrases, and wallet hashes. However, this information has not received official confirmation. GateHub representatives said they were aware of a data leak, and they are currently verifying their authenticity.
