The well-known cryptocurrency exchange Poloniex has reported the filtering of a list of email addresses and passwords that could be used to access Poloniex accounts. The exchange was forced to reset the passwords of the accounts created with any of the filtered email addresses.

The email that Poloniex sent to its users informed: "Although almost all [filtered] email addresses that appear in the list do not belong to Poloniex accounts, we are forcing the password to be reset at any email address that have an account with us, including yours."

The data was filtered on Twitter and it is not clear what percentage of that filtered data belongs to Poloniex customers.
