Crypto firms warn customers after Hubspot employee account compromise

Several crypto firms warned their customers over the weekend following a data breach at marketing software maker Hubspot.

BlockFi, Swan Bitcoin and Pantera Capital issued messages to their clients and warned that their information may have been accessed — specifically, names and contact information collected for customer relationship purposes and stored on Hubspot. In all instances, the companies stressed that no client funds were impacted.

In a statement posted to its website, Hubspot said that "[o]n March 18, a bad actor compromised a HubSpot employee account and used it to access data within fewer than 30 HubSpot accounts."

"At this time, we believe this to be a targeted incident focused on customers in the cryptocurrency industry," the firm continued. "We have terminated access for the compromised HubSpot employee account and removed the ability for other employees to take certain actions in customer accounts."
