Kaspersky Lab’s Cybersecurity Solution for Crypto-Exchanges

part of Kaspersky BlockChain Security Solutions.

A crypto-exchange is an online platform where users buy and sell cryptocurrencies, and, like in many cases, keep crypto-funds there. The combined monthly trading volume of the largest crypto-exchanges exceeds hundreds of billions US dollars. That is something cybercriminals simply cannot ignore. In fact, they regularly target cyber-exchanges and many of their attacks are successful. Hackers usually don’t try to exploit vulnerabilities in cryptocurrencies because of how difficult the they are to hack. They also rarely attack wallets directly. In most cases, they are interested in crypto-exchanges themselves since these are mostly centralized applications. Typical threats for such applications include backdoors, embedded at the development stage, web vulnerabilities such as cross-site scripting (XSS), and social engineering attacks such as phishing. Learn how you can mitigate the risks related to the trading engine as an application and to the web aspect of crypto-exchanges.
