Representatives of the exchange assured that they took "immediate action" to fix the problem. The scale of the leak has not yet been reported.

Some Twitter users have posted screenshots of emails received.

It can be assumed that BitMEX employees forgot to put the recipients of the e-mail newsletter in a “blind copy” of the letter, which is why the privacy of users was compromised.

Other market players also reacted to the leak. So, the Binance bitcoin exchange encouraged its users to change their email addresses if they are used for accounts on several exchanges. At the same time, Binance did not directly indicate whether this is due to BitMEX problems.
