The iGaming market, including online poker, is one of the most attractive for cybercrime. Fraud incidents happen almost every day, which is why the industry does not stop improving security systems.
Some occur due to interconnected transactions on the Internet, while others occur due to imperfections or lack of required security measures. Evenbet Gaming experts spoke about three main types of online crimes.
Account hijacking: one of the most common types of crimes, which can be divided into two goals. The first is the collection of sensitive user data for later use for personal purposes. The second is a seizure in order to steal money from a user’s account or a game from his account. Regardless of the target, such attacks cause great damage.
Ransomware and DDoS attacks: Both options are used to capture users’ personal data and break the stability of the platform. Most often, this is followed by an offer of monetary compensation, after which the hackers stop the DDoS attacks and deactivate the ransomware. Despite the high level of protection, many poker rooms still suffer from such crimes today.
Money laundering: this type of offense can also be divided into several options. Some criminals thus “whitewash” money obtained by illegal methods. Others can steal users’ payment details and make deposits from their cards and wallets, then withdraw in cryptocurrency without being noticed.
Such crimes cause great harm to operators, as they may lose reputation, suffer monetary losses in the form of fines from the licensee, and in some countries, paying a ransomware ransom can be regarded as support for the crime.
EvenBet Gaming pays great attention to security and is ISO 27001 certified, which guarantees high standards of process security and software testing by independent laboratories for vulnerabilities.
