Celsius Confirms Client Emails Leaked

On July 29, Celsius sent a notice informing customers that their email lists were leaked by an employee of one of their business data management and messaging service providers.

According to Celsius, the breach came from an engineer of the Customer.io messaging platform who leaked data to a third-party bad guy. In addition, the company revealed the event was part of a large-scale leak of OpenSea user data that occurred in June 2022.

“We were recently informed by our vendor Customer.io that one of their employees accessed a list of Celsius client email addresses.”

Celsius claims the incident does not pose any high risk to corporate customers and insists it just wants users to be aware of what is happening. Neither the number of leaked emails nor the platforms involved were disclosed.

On July 7, Customer.io wrote in a blog post:

“We know this was a result of the deliberate actions of a senior engineer who had an appropriate level of access to perform their duties and provided these email addresses to the bad actor. The employee has since been terminated.”

However, the crypto community has started to warn users of phishing attacks which usually follow an email data breach.

A similar data breach in April 2021 targeted Celsius subscribers through a bogus website pretending to be a legitimate platform. Some received SMS and emails requesting personal information and seed phrases.
