Security token trading platform DX.Exchange says it has patched a security vulnerability that allowed anyone to access user authentication tokens.
DX.Exchange, which went live on Monday, offers crypto tokens representing shares in a number of Nasdaq-traded firms. The company uses Nasdaq's matching engine and financial information exchange protocol to facilitate the trading of these digital securities.
However, in its first few days, the platform revealed sensitive data, including password reset links, as reported by Ars Technica. It is unclear how many user accounts were at compromised, though an anonymous trader told the news site that he collected "about 100 ... tokens over 30 minutes."
