Notes
Open markets are susceptible to manipulation and attacks. From our survey of the security and default settings of online brokerages, we make the startling discovery that strong protections like twofactor authentication (2FA) are discretionary for users across the industry, making phishing straightforward. Trade notifications are by default delivered via email only, where malware with access can silently delete them before the user receives notification on any device. Dark web marketplaces sell stolen brokerage accounts containing thousands in cash for mere tens of dollars, demonstrating a low difficulty for the hackers.
