Binji (All In One Card) Attacked By Criminals – Funds Loads Disabled

Last month we posted about all in one card Binji, a few days ago they sent out an e-mail to existing users that Binji has been attacked by criminals and that loading funds has been disabled. Binji went on to say that personal information was not stolen as this is all encrypted. Full e-mail below:

Dear Valued Users,
 
Some of you have may have already contacted Customer Service or social media inquiring about the inability to load funds.  Please accept our apologies for the inconvenience.
 
We would like to share with you that Binji’s system has been compromised and attacked by criminals.  For your protection, we have disabled the fund loading feature while we investigate further and put additional preventions in place.  This does not affect your ability to spend or use the funds previously loaded into your Binji account. 
 
Please be rest assured criminals did not access your personal information as they are fully encrypted and stored. 
 
We will reinstate the fund loading function soon once we have completed our system enhancements. 
 
Thank you for your support.

Still crazy that people signed up for this after the founder’s track record.

The criminals who accessed the info were the founders.

Let’s be real though: if you knew his track record you only signed up for the (long) shot at MS. If you didn’t sign up for MS then you didn’t know his track record

That’s… That’s not how that works.

We have no idea the level of encryption used, or if it was properly salted, etc. Based on the information given I would assume any information Binji had is now in the hands of the criminals.

Yeah my thoughts exactly. I love the wording though. Not only is it “fully encrypted” (whatever that means). It’s also “stored”. I feel so much better that they made sure to store our personal information.

Maybe they were hit by ransonware — if it wasn’t encrypted well before, it sure is now!

This company is such a dumpster fire. I hear some folks had their funds locked up or went missing during their repeated outages and maintenance.

Bought one of these to do some MS research (and it was fully covered via Amex Plat return protection so I paid nothing).

Complete trash. Neither the card nor the app work properly. I had some pretty low expectations for it but I did not think about getting hacked.

That sucks.

That’s awesome you were doing “some MS research ” and take the MS hobby so seriously!

The only way to find out if something works is to try. And people get bent when successes aren’t broadcast, yet they’re not willing to explore on their own.

I had a bad feeling about this one, just based on the guy’s track record. Seems like quite the cluster.
