Bitbuckette, one of the most popular social media platforms, is facing a class action lawsuit from the family of a student who was unable to use the service to purchase a product.
According to the complaint filed on Wednesday in US District Court for the Northern District of California, Bitbuckett failed to verify that the student had an account with the platform.
The company also failed to make the student aware that a new, secure, account was required for use of the Bitbucketeers’ Bitbucketing feature, according to the filing.
“The BitbuckET service fails to provide sufficient information about Bitbuckettes security to enable Bitbucketers users to verify their Bitbucketer accounts,” the complaint states.
“Bitbucket fails to take reasonable steps to ensure that its users have a secure, secure account.”
Bitbuckets account verification processBitbuckette did not respond to a request for comment.
The suit is the latest in a series of lawsuits filed in the United States and Europe alleging that Bitbucketts security practices are inadequate for its users.
In December, the European Union Court of Justice ordered BitbuckETS to implement a “zero-knowledge” verification system, in a move that has been described as “the most comprehensive security measure ever”.
The European Commission has also requested that BitBucket implement “zero knowledge” verification.
BitbuckET’s European Union spokesperson, Ewa Kiesewetter, told the BBC that “every Bitbucketter, and everyone in Bitbucketch, must comply with the EU directives”.
The company has previously stated that it had introduced “zero known risk” and “zero potential for attack”.
It also stated that “the Bitbucketting community does not require an account verification as of March 2018”, and that it would “continue to actively monitor Bitbuckits security policies”.
The suit alleges that BitKeeper was never made available as a secure option for BitBucks users.
