Crypto financial institution BlockFi confirmed a data breach incident to one of its third-party vendors, Hubspot. BlockFi announced the breach in an attempt to deter the intentions of bad actors of repurposing the user data for fraudulent purposes.

According to the announcement, the hackers gained access to BlockFi’s client data on Friday, March 18, that were stored on Hubspot, a client relationship management platform:

“Hubspot has confirmed that an unauthorized third-party gained access to certain BlockFi client data housed on their platform.”

In its role as a third-party vendor for BlockFi, Hubspot stored users' information such as their names, emails, and phone numbers. In the past, bad actors have exploited such information by phishing and gaining access to accounts via user-provided passwords.

While the exact details of the breached data are yet to be identified and revealed, BlockFi reassured users by highlighting that personal data — including passwords, government-issued IDs and social security numbers — “were never stored on Hubspot.”
