Phishing Scheme Compromises Cryptocurrency Exchange Users

ByJohn Lomicky


Updated onJanuary 11, 2022

This case involves a company that runs a cryptocurrency exchange. A large number of the site’s users fell victim to a phishing scheme and alleged that the site administrators failed to implement proper security protocols that would have prevented such a scheme. The company in question claimed to use 2FA (two-factor authentication), amongst other cutting-edge security measures, to prevent such events from occurring. An expert in cyber security was sought to confirm that there was nothing more the exchange company could have done to prevent the phishing scheme.
