How to Keep Hackers Out of Your Initial Coin Offering (ICO)

How to Keep Hackers Out of Your Initial Coin Offering (ICO)

A week without hearing about an ICO being hacked is unusual. Given the obvious and ongoing issues, it is surprising that there is so little information available on how to protect your ICO for teams starting or running a blockchain firm.
When your project announces its ICO to the world, it essentially guarantees that it will collect hundreds, if not millions, of dollars in bitcoin. You're setting yourself up as a target.

3D Modeling Services creates a magnificent and impressive visual experience for Information Transformation Services' clients. We are absolutely committed to providing our customers with a variety of appealing 3D designs that have been meticulously designed to fulfil all types of requirements.



It's the equivalent of openly declaring that you've amassed and are hoarding millions of dollars in your apartment. Criminals will take notice and exploit any weakness. Your ICO or blockchain project will almost probably be hacked unless you take action.



Why is there such a plethora of hacks?



The prevalence of breaches is most likely due to a combination of factors, including record amounts of money entering the industry, the absence of security concerns in new initiatives, and the security vulnerabilities inherent in this developing ecosystem.



A quick disclaimer



This paper is not meant to be a comprehensive cybersecurity manual or a comprehensive list of attack vectors. It is intended to increase your understanding of the numerous types of security threats out there, to provide you with practical recommendations on how to secure your ICO or blockchain project, and to push you to take action.



Information Transformation Service offers web scraping services to improve business outcomes and facilitate intelligent decision making. Their web scraping service allows you to scrape data from any website and transfer web pages into an easy-to-use format such as Excel, CSV, JSON, and many more.



To that end, this post will look at six well-known crypto breaches and discuss the security implications. It will also offer ten essential security recommendations to help ICO teams and blockchain companies avoid becoming the next hacking statistic.



The DAO Scheme



What happened?



The DAO, a company that is building a Decentralized Autonomous Organization (DAO) on the Ethereum blockchain, has been hacked. The DAO project was started in late April 2016, with a 28-day financing period.



The project was funded through a token sale, which was a big success, raising around $150 million from approximately 11,000 people worldwide. 'The DAO' was hacked by an unknown attacker who stole $55 million in Ether shortly after the funds were raised.



Despite reports detailing security issues and advising people not to support the DAO, it was the largest crowdfunding project in history at the time. Finally, the hacker stopped draining The DAO's assets, and the Ethereum community seized control of the situation. The money, fortunately, was subject to a 28-day hold period, which stopped the hacker from spending the stolen Ether.



The postmortem investigation



The attack was ultimately enabled by a weakness in The DAO code rather than the Ethereum network itself. Many developers warned that the DAO project was vulnerable to a programming hazard or bug known as “recursive calls” — “where an attacker called the “split” function, and then called the split function recursively inside of the split, thereby collecting ether many times over in a single transaction.” [1]



This allowed the attacker to drain more than $50 million in ether into a "child DAO" with the same structure as The DAO, and the attacker was able to continuously request the ether from the smart contract (DAO) before the smart contract could update its balance. The DAO's programming was flawed because it sent the ETH funds first and then changed the balance.



Key recommendations for protecting your ICO from hackers



The process of creating Ethereum smart contracts is notoriously error-prone, with the repercussions of even a single mistake or loophole being severe.



At the very least, use programming manuals that offer best-practice recommendations to avoid frequent errors.



Take security concerns seriously and pay attention to what your community has to say.



Consider putting a doomsday clause in your smart contracts that prevents any Ether from being converted into fiat money after a certain number of days.



It is critical to monitor ICO activities and be able to act quickly.



Coindash



What happened?



CoinDash is a cryptocurrency-based portfolio management tool. The Coindash Initial Coin Offering (ICO) was hacked almost soon after it launched in July 2017. As a result, several potential clients transferred money to a fictitious address. The sale was cancelled following a $7 million loss.



When the Coindash team discovered that hackers had changed the official wallet address to a wallet owned by the hackers, they issued an emergency alert. It was, however, too late.



“This is an emergency message issued to you to prevent you from sending money to an unapproved ETH address. Our Token Sale website appears to have been tampered with, and the sending address appears to have been changed. Please do not send any funds to any of the addresses unless we specifically instruct you to do so. We are actively researching the issue and will provide additional instructions as soon as possible.”



The postmortem investigation



Coindash, like many other ICOs, featured a page on its website that received thousands of unique visitors, with text indicating an Ethereum address to which buyers could send money.



Purchasers were misled into sending money to the wrong address during the Coindash Initial Coin Offering. In about 7 minutes, 43 thousand ETH were redirected to a malware address. The hacker achieved this by getting control of the official Coindash website immediately after the ICO began and simply changing the text on the site to reflect their ether wallet address rather than Coindash's address.



The exploit methods, according to cyber security experts, imply that it was most likely carried out by a highly adept group of people rather than a single person.



An investigation into the hack of the CoinDash WordPress site has begun and is still ongoing. The Coindash blog has some preliminary findings -

After School is One of The Hardest Working Groups Out There
I was revisiting some older Kpop tracks and came across the magic that is After School. And it struck me just how hard these girls work for each comeback. Check it out below! Their first three songs were instant hits and blasted them to stardom. 1. Ah! 2. Diva 3. Because of You** ** You hear remixes and covers of this song on Korean TV all the time. Before their debut, Pledis said that their concepts would be heavily influenced by the Pussycat Dolls. The Pussycat Dolls must have loved their style because when they had their Asian leg of their world tour, they had After School open for them! They were already known for their amazing performance skills (((did you see the choreography in the When I Grow Up performance?!?!?!??))) They then began to commit heavily to concepts, starting with BANG. The girls learned how to play the drums to fit into the marching band concept of Bang! And they basically killed it. The next few years were spent making Orange Caramel a HUGE success and becoming mega-famous in Japan. Then they came back with Flashback which is still such an iconic Kpop song today. Every Korean probably could sing this chorus :) Like with Bang! the girls decided to commit to an entirely new concept: They all learned how to pole dance. Nana even showed off the ridiculous bruises she got from training for 6 months. Various members have "graduated" or been added, including Kahi who went solo after her long stint with After School. (She actually founded the group^^) I hope that these girls get the attention they deserve! I love how much they put into their work :)
Female Idols in School Uniforms Before & After Debut

Kpop Relatables for every Kpop fan. You do this too, don't lie.
Hey everyone! In honor of today being my birthday starting.. 3 hours ago, I have decided to post these relatable and fun kpop pictures I have found and wanted to share with you all. I wanted to make sure you all got a couple laughs and know that you are absolutely not alone in this community. I just found some of these while I was looking up kpop things( like I always do) and stumbled upon them. Thank you all for always being there and tagging me in things i may like. It always makes me feel wanted and like I'm part of something which is something I have always wanted. If any of you ever want to talk or let me know what you want me to post about, you can always message me or comment, my inbox is always open!! Enjoy guys!!! I'm pretty sure most, if not all of us have done this at one point or another. Even I did it yesterday when I watched the end of the dance for EOEO by Uniq when they are grinding on the floor- yes I literally said "I wish I could be that floor." This is true in a lot of ways. Having a bias sometimes does seem better than having a boyfriend. Having a bias as a boyfriend would be AMAZING!! But also I've set my boyfriend bar so high to match my bias, so that's one reason I will never have a relationship. ㅋㅋㅋㅋ! Am I the only one that does this? Ah eye smiles. They hit you right in the feels! The eye smile isn't iconic just because our idols are so adorable when they do it (although it is a big part of it) but it's that they happiness that shows on their face that makes their smiles huge and their eyes sink away to tiny adorable slits. Haha. I think we can all agree eye smiles are dangerous, heart melting things. Who do you think has the best eye smiles in kpop? ^ㅅ^ This couldn't be more true to me. What people who aren't kpop fans don't understand is, we have all joined together and not just became friends and fellow fans, but we have also become a family who support each other and each other's fandoms. Yet another statement that couldn't be more true. Before kpop, I wouldn't have met so many people both here and outside of the Vingle kpop community. Before someone mentions they like kpop i find it hard to take a lot of interest in them but once the word kpop comes up, I break into my kpop loving self. And a lot of the time, we become friends and continue to stretch kpop love across the world. These quotes just make me smile and are over all inspirational to me. I really enjoy how wise and knowledgable our idols are. They are more than people may think. I've heard people say, "yeah they are good at singing and dancing, but that's all they are good for." But we all know that's not true. Our idols rank high in sports, school, languages, performing and so much more, which makes me happy when I read these amazing words they say in their music and in real life. Being a kpop fan takes a special kind of person. We are able to look past the language barriers, the distance, the age differences, the unnecessary and sometimes hurtful remarks from others and still support and love continue to love Kpop and idols with all our hearts. No matter how hard it may be to be a kpop fan, international or not, we still stick it out and support that Hallyu wave all the way!!! As I said before, we have some of the most wise people as idols. This quote from CL makes me incredibly happy and I couldn't have said this better myself. I get bashed all the time by people I don't know, non-kpop friends and even my family always saying there is no point to listening to music that you can't understand, but what they don't understand is music truly IS universal. You don't have to know the words to a song to be able to jam to it. Honestly, since I'm so used to kpop, even though I can't understand what they are saying, it doesn't seem like a foreign language to me. So there is no point to the hating on kpop music and it's fans, because to us, we can enjoy the music just fine without knowing the words. And we are proud of it!! And yes, I have thought about this a lot before. My parents don't really get why I like kpop, but I even said to them, "it could be worse, I could be drinking, doing drugs, partying and hooking up with guys like most kids my age." But I don't really do that. My social life is just a relationship between me and my cell phone. And all of you of course. I really gotta get out more, but I like staying in and doing nothing. Who else has had this problem where your family just really doesn't get that this is a good thing and you could be doing MUCH worse things? This is just a relatable kpop thing that I thought many of you would know about and have also done. There are so so so many pictures of my biases on my phone of the EXACT SAME PICTURE!! I just never know if I had saved it or not. There are times where I'm like "I know for a fact that I have seen this picture," so I screenshot it and when I go through all of my pictures later on, It turns out I have seen it before (a few times apparently) and thought the same thing back then too, so I have multiples of the same pics. These are just things I feel that I want to happen just because I am a fangirl and I do honestly think I can end up with my bias someday. It's true. There have been times where I needed to focus on my studies so I tried to leave the kpop world and I couldn't even do it for a day, let alone forever. Kpop is just to Fantastic to even try to leave. Once we got you, you ain't ever gonna be able to leave. You're in for life. I've done it. I bet some of you have too. Kpop does take over your world, but it's actually a good thing. Since I became a kpop fan, my life has become better and I've met some really good and dependable people who can relate to me as well. Fangirling is my job though, besides my actual job... Yeah, international fans can relate. Being an international fan, you learn to make it work. One of the things we must make work is the distance and knowing we won't be able to see concerts unless we watch the fancams. And even though it's hard sometimes, fancams are fun to watch because there are so many from so many different angles and shows that it makes being an international fan easier. Find your bias idols and groups! Let me know who is your favorite!! The light stick oceans. "Only in kpop can you see the different colors of the ocean" I love kpop oceans; they are a life goal of mine, and I really hope to get to be in one one day. What about you guys? Have you been in a light stick ocean before? Which ones if so, and if not whose would you want to be in most? And lastly, the things that connect us are not only how crazy we are, but that we are all crazy together. Kpop has the ability to bring different people together and give them something in common that most people can never relate to. It makes me really happy when I randomly think about the people I have met from being into kpop and the thing I have learned. Since I started listening to kpop and learning about korea in general I've learned to be more considerate of people and to try and understand people more for what they like and not judge them for it. Kpop has absolutely changed my life for the better and I can't and don't want to imagine what my life would be like without it.
Things To Say To Our Idols On Twitter, Instagram, etc.
안녕하세요! So, I've been on Twitter and for the past few days, I've been seeing fans replying to idols' tweets, saying, "F*** me." or "Daddy." I think this is extremely disrespectful to our lovely, hard-working idols. Here are some nice things to say to our idols on Twitter and Instagram. ^^ (This ___ means someone's name goes there! ^^) ___ 사랑해. (I love you, ___.) 화이팅! (Fighting!) ___ 힘내. (“___, I support you." or "___, feel better.”) ___ 힘내고 사랑해. (___, feel better. I love you.) 항상 응원해. (I support you always.) ___, 생일축하해요. (Happy birthday, ___.) 건강하고 행복하세요. 좋은날을지내요. 사랑해요. (Always stay happy and healthy. Have a good day. I love you.) 이런 소문에 휩쓸려 맘아파하지말아요.사실이 아닌걸알아요.우리가 항상 뒤에있을께요. 힘내요, 알았지요? (Please don't let rumors get to you. We know they're fake. We're always here to support you guys. Keep your heads up, okay?) 본인을잘챙겨주세요. 힘들게노력하는것을알고있으니까 많이 걱정하기도하지만 뿌듯해요. 당신이 건강하고 행복할때 우리팬들도 가장행복해요. (Please take care of yourselves, we know you work very hard and this makes us both very proud and worried. Your fans are happiest when you are happy and healthy.) 기쁨가득한날을 보냈으면 좋겠어요. 많이사랑해요. 건강하고 많이쉬세요. (I hope you have a wonderful day full of joy. I love you very much. Stay healthy and rest lots!)
