KYC documents (passports, licenses, selfies) are being leaked en masse in a public Telegram group. They're purported to be from the #Binance hack.— LocalEthereum (@LocalEthereum) August 7, 2019

Binance KYC documents from a hack last year seem to be doing the rounds, nothings confirmed but makes sense to step out of any BNB postions whilst this unravels.
*Edit I've just seen the TG group and it looks legit. The FUD is going to be unreal with this, I imagine it will hit msm later today.
That's shit. CZ calling it fud at the moment. But then Binance said there are 'inconsistencies' with the reported leak which doesn't sound particularly good.
Yes I saw that he's calling it fud but also at the same time calling it old news, he should rest his Twitter fingers before making statements.
From the old days I remember seeing gox and btc-e pastebins but never a data leak like this.
Wouldn't Binance be liable for a huge fine for data breach in a regulated world? I remember reading (although much larger scale) something similar happening with Equifax in the US that got them a $500 million fine
