Hackers claim to have stolen user data from defunct cryptocurrency company Coin Cloud.

An anonymous group of hackers claims to have stolen the personal information of around 300,000 customers of the Bitcoin (BTC) ATM company called Coin Cloud, the pseudonymous Vx-underground cybersecurity account published on X (formerly Twitter).

In addition to personal information, the hacker group also claims to have gotten their hands on 70,000 customer selfie verification data. According to Vx-underground, the hackers claim to have obtained details such as occupations, physical addresses, social security numbers and other data from the company. The hackers would also have access to the data of residents of the United States and users of Brazil.

In addition, the hacker group allegedly claimed to have accessed the source code of the Coin Cloud back-end. At the time of writing, the company has yet to release an official statement regarding the hack.

Cointelegraph reached out to Coin Cloud and Vx-underground for additional comment but did not receive an immediate response.

A Feb. 7 filing showed the company had liabilities of between $100 million and $500 million while it only had assets of between $50 million and $100 million.
