Australian crypto exchange BTC Markets accidentally exposed all clients' names and email addresses

Australian crypto exchange BTC Markets yesterday sent a mass email to its users, which has affected their privacy.

The exchange accidentally put users' names and email addresses in the "To" field of the email. The incident has affected all 270,000 users of BTC Markets, said CEO Caroline Bowler.

BTC Markets said its trading platform remains unaffected by the email issue. "Our external communication process has no interaction with our internal system and no password data was exposed."
