Nasdaq Powered DX.Exchange Patches and Shuts Down Security Vulnerability 1

Just yesterday, January 10th, news reached the crypto-verse that the newly launched DX.Exchange– that is powered by Nasdaq technology – had serious security vulnerabilities that could be exploited by malicious users and/or hackers. The security bugs were discovered by an online trader who requested that his identity be kept secret. The anonymous trader managed to collect over 100 JSON Web Tokens that could have resulted in the access of their corresponding user accounts.

The trader went on to explain the following to Ars Technica:

I have about 100 collected tokens over 30 minutes. If you wanted to criminalize this, it would be super easy.

I got tokens from the exchange itself. You can see from the account’s email address it’s @coins.exchange. I have pretty good confidence I could do this for a day and get an administrative token and have everything
