Saturday 27th of February, we received a threatening message stating that personal data of LiteBit users has been compromised and would be published unless LiteBit pays for the data. We will never cave in to any threats of such a nature as this is against our policy: we do not fund criminal activity and we are transparent with our users.
Based on a sample of the data that was included in the message and further analysis we conclude that this concerns relatively old data from before December 2019. Also, only Dutch users were included in the sample. However, we do want to inform all our users accordingly.
We are currently investigating this incident in-depth together with LiteBit experts and industry leading IT security experts. LiteBit also reported this incident to the relevant authorities, including the Autoriteit Persoonsgegevens (AP) and law enforcement.
Trust is one of LiteBit’s key principles and we therefore find it important to share the available information with you:
We take safety and security very seriously and we do our very best to get to the bottom of this incident and prevent such occurrences in the future. We will keep you informed about any developments which are relevant for you.
