Hackers Claim to Have Stolen User Data from Defunct Crypto ATM Firm Coin Cloud

An anonymous group of hackers has reportedly claimed to have stolen personal information from approximately 300,000 customers of the now-defunct Bitcoin ATM company Coin Cloud. The hackers allege that they have acquired a range of sensitive information, including customer selfie verification data for around 70,000 users. The compromised details reportedly include occupations, physical addresses, and social security numbers, with affected users located in the United States and Brazil.

Vx-underground, a pseudonymous cybersecurity account, shared this information on X (formerly Twitter). In addition to personal data, the hacker group asserts that it has accessed the source code for Coin Cloud’s back end. As of the time of reporting, Coin Cloud has not issued an official statement regarding the alleged hack.

Earlier in the year, Coin Cloud filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy. The company announced its decision to undergo reorganization on February 8, with the intention of addressing debt concerns and protecting creditor interests. The bankruptcy filing revealed that Coin Cloud had liabilities ranging from $100 million to $500 million, while its assets were estimated to be between $50 million and $100 million.
