Hubspot Hack Leads to Data Breaches at BlockFi

A data breach at Hubspot, a tool used by many companies to manage marketing campaigns and onboard new users, has affected BlockFi and Swan Bitcoin, but both companies say that their operations have not been affected and treasuries are not at risk.

  • Hubspot is a Customer Relationship Management (CRM) tool used to store users’ names, phone numbers, and email addresses for marketing purposes, and measure the effectiveness of marketing campaigns.
  • While user information was leaked to hackers, both companies say that passwords and other internal information was not affected. As Hubspot is an external tool, hackers did not gain access to internal systems.
  • Hubspot said that this was the result of a bad actor getting access to an employee account and using it to target stakeholders in the cryptocurrency industry.
  • The company said 30 clients were affected, but has not published a list.
  • Some users have reported receiving an uptick in phishing emails from the companies over the weekend, attempting to lure them into entering their password on a fake site.
