Waves platform reported in the Medium blog that WAVES holders have been targeted by a phishing scam on Facebook several times, and that Waves team stated that it was a scam. In order to solve this issue and prevent further problems, Waves decided to partner with cybersecurity firm Group-IB, a global leader in combating high-tech crime and online fraud.

Decentralising value requires a new paradigm, and it’s important for users to remember that the flipside of being in control of their own funds is that there is no authority to reverse a fraudulent transaction. We would therefore urge our community to be vigilant of such phishing attempts and report and malicious sites and links immediately.

Alexander Ivanov

CEO, Waves Platform

Group-IB is a company which is protecting banks,insurance and financial institutions from a various threats like phishing attacks, online fraud, malicious programs, unauthorized remote connection to clients devices in order to conduct transactions. Waves decided to partner with the company to prevent its users from being cyber attacked.

Does it make sense to wait for the risk to turn into a real problem? WAVES and its community have already answered this question: protection of the business and its assets is a priority for any industry regardless of its age. And we are glad that the companies of the crypto insdustry are gradually coming to this understanding: WAVES and its community serve as an example of this.
