MODS: since Bitmain account holders are most probably miners, I thought this was the best place to post this. Feel free to move it to another forum if you think it belongs there. Thanks.

This is a warning to everyone with an account with Bitmain to change your passwords and enable 2FA for logging in and withdrawals (separate settings). Use Google Authenticator and NOT SMS 2FA. With your phone number being among the data released, someone could convince your phone carrier to switch your SIM to their phone and then use it for SMS 2FA. See https://www.digitaltrends.com/mobile/sim-swap-fraud-explained/

This wont change the fact that your email, name, address, phone number (and who knows what else) is out there, but at least it will secure your account, especially if you use the same credentials for your Hashnest or AntPool account (Bitmain uses the same "passport" credentials to log into all their websites).

Also, make sure your password for the email address used with your Bitmain account is a strong one.

I received the email below to an email address I use with my Bitmain account. It seems somebody hacked their customer database and is attempting to sell it.
I have emailed this information to Bitmain support, and will report back if/when they respond to me.

Nice to see that someone is honest and share that information because fraud in the crypto world is enormous growing every day.

Received a warming 2-3 months ago from Bitmain to change our passwords because something was hacked. Hopefully this is a fake email/offer. Otherwise it would it would be a big hassle. I'm starting to regret buying 2 D3s, now this!
