On August 16, 2019 at 15:00 UTC, a white hat hacker was able to gain access to the @BinanceJE (Binance Jersey) Twitter account by social engineering the email domain name service provider used by Binance Jersey. The white hat hacker posted a few tweets from the Twitter handle @BinanceJE, then deleted them.
The white hat hacker was cooperative and open in his communications with our security team, and we were able to restore the domain name within a few minutes and the Twitter handle a couple of hours later. We will issue a security bug bounty to the white hat hacker, as well as investigate the incident further with our service provider.
All funds on Binance.JE are safe. No data was compromised.
If you are a white hat hacker and wish to report a security vulnerability with any of the products within the Binance ecosystem, we invite you to review the Binance Bug Bounty program. You may be rewarded up to $100,000 depending on the severity of the issue reported.
Thank you for your understanding and we are grateful for your continued trust and support.
