ARE YOU TRADING STOCKS SECURELY EXPOSING SECURITY FLAWS IN TRADING TECHNOLOGIES
The advent of electronic trading platforms and networks has made exchanging financial securities easier and faster than ever; but this comes with inherent risks.

Among them are unencrypted authentication, communications, passwords, and trading data; remote DoS that leaves applications useless; trading programming languages that allow DLL imports; insecurely implemented chatbots; weak password policies; hardcoded secrets; and poor session management.
