Account theft from cryptocurrency exchanges for manipulating market prices

As cryptocurrency prices soared, hacking attacks aimed at them also surged. The hacking organization used personal information distributed on the dark web to steal cryptocurrency exchange accounts and even manipulated the market price.

According to the industry on the 5th, the security of the exchange turned red as hacking attacks targeting cryptocurrency exchanges increased recently. Cryptocurrency exchanges have a double whammy of responding to hacking attacks as they go through procedures such as reporting virtual assets under the Act on Reporting and Use of Specific Financial Transaction Information (Specialty Act), which took effect in March.

Account management is becoming more crucial to prevent attacks that happen by logging in with stolen accounts as cryptocurrency transactions and popularity increase.
