A critical vulnerability in a widely used file-transfer program has resulted in a widespread fallout, with new victims emerging. The hacking spree has breached 122 organizations and compromised the data of approximately 15 million individuals.
The crucial question is - are you one of them?!
The recent attacks exploited a zero-day vulnerability in the MOVEit file-transfer service, which was patched by provider Progress after the initial signs of exploitation. Despite the patch, some users who hadn't installed the fix on their networks continued to be hacked.
The affected organizations range from payroll services to government entities and educational institutions, with data breaches and theft reported. The hackers also targeted another file-transfer service, GoAnywhere, exploiting a critical vulnerability and impacting numerous organizations, including a major hospital chain.
Because Artificial Intelligence (AI) is evolving at a rapid pace, perpetrators are using its potential to develop new, harrowing ways to attack and exploit weak security systems in centralized entities.
To combat these attacks, SelfKey proposes the following decentralized solutions:
SelfKey iD - An innovative method of online identity verification which utilizes the power of AI to combat identity theft.
POI Staking - Used to increase the credibility and authenticity of an individual, and thus prevent malicious bots or identity thieves from accessing personal accounts or private systems.
Ideally, a decentralized environment could prevent these attacks, as long as they implement strong security measures. Even though decentralized systems aren’t flawless, they may considerably reduce the risks associated with data breaches and identity theft.
Additionally, individuals must take caution when operating in these digital spaces, web2 and web3, and take every available step to enhance their digital identity security.
Prevention is key!

Sybil Attack Threats and SelfKey’s Decentralized Defense
Decentralized systems, although considerably more secure than centralized entities, are not flawless. And, their weaknesses are being exploited by malicious individuals who seek to disrupt the security and balance of the protocol.
How can we secure these systems? SelfKey may have the answer!
Tokenization - Could it Protect Your Digital Identity?
With the past-paced evolution of modern technology, it’s crucial that we become familiar with the innovative concepts that will shape our digital future.
For this purpose, SelfKey aims to provide a comprehensive guide on tokenization, its benefits, its challenges, and how it may enhance digital privacy and security.
Can ‘good’ AI defeat ‘bad’ AI?
The rise of generative AI and deepfake technology has sparked both excitement and concern. While generative AI applications have become prevalent, deepfakes have taken things a step further by creating realistic images, videos, and voices, which can be used to create “evil twins” in the metaverse as well as Web2.
However, while concerns persist about the rapid advancement of bad AI, investing in continuously adaptive machine learning-based approaches for human verification and authentication can be a viable defense strategy. By prioritizing security measures, businesses not only mitigate fraud risks but also enhance customer experience and satisfaction.
