Recent thefts on Coinbase and an ongoing case where a large sum of cryptocurrency was stolen highlights how easy it is to steal cryptocurrency.
Individuals are reporting having anywhere from US$168,000 to US$1 million in cryptocurrency being stolen. The Better Business Bureau has received over 1,100 complaints against Coinbase regarding stolen cryptocurrency.
Cybercriminals have found multiple avenues for stealing money from crypto wallets, the easiest is with malware that swaps payment addresses when copying and pasting.
Acronis Cyber Protect recognizes when sensitive data is being accessed and manipulated maliciously and already detects the latest clipboard swapping malware, with its included Active Protection.
