UK Bitcoin Exchange CoinCut Investigates Breach

CoinCutBitcoin exchange CoinCut is investigating a possible data breach which exposed sensitive information including passport and card data to the public.

The CoinCut website was back up and running at the time of writing, although performance is slow.

Visitors last week were apparently able to access directories including images of passports, personal ID and credit and debit cards.

“Information leaks of people who want to use a pseudo-anonymous currency is probably some of the most valuable data on earth to spooks, competitors, as well as the security research community,” says Robert Hansen, vice president at WhiteHat Security.
