Besides someone stealing your private key, what are other potential attack vectors on an Ethereum account?

1 Answer 1

  1. getting access to you ipc socket and have this loop running waiting for you to use Mist or anything that unlocks your account (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PNSwFy__m-8)
  2. same attack for rpc, that's more about opening the --rpc flag and exposing the port to the world
  3. keyloggers of course
  4. the websocket option seems deadly at first sight
  • how can we reduce the attack vector then?
