Etana security breach involved user information leak
In its official memo, the company stated that an unauthorized third-party had gained access to the Etana Custody client user interface. The possibility of some information leak during the breach cannot be ruled out. However, user assets and securities have not been affected in any way. There have been no technical damages to the platform.
Most importantly, the attacker was not able to make any unauthorized transactions from any user account. The internal security system identified the attack and triggered the alarm. The attack was neutralized, and further investigation into the incident is underway by Etana officials.

Etana security breach may have led to the leak of personal user information, including ID data like name, contact number, address, etc. Adding more details, the firm said that no information relating to a user’s government ID card, driving license and passport information was leaked.
