FailSafe partners with Forta
FailSafe partners with Forta Network! FailSafe has released a new feature called ‘Smart Mode’ which enhances blockchain cybersecurity by identifying and preventing threats to compromised wallets and smart contracts.
This is achieved by integrating Forta’s real-time threat intelligence with FailSafe’s automated incident response system. Smart Mode monitors and analyzes blockchain transactions in real time, allowing FailSafe to proactively protect digital assets from malicious activity.
Understanding FailSafe’s Modes: Safe Mode and Smart Mode
FailSafe’s Safe Mode is the default mode that captures all transactions that involve FailSafe-protected assets. On the other hand, the Smart Mode is designed for users who intentionally transact or experience high-frequency activity. It includes trading desks, to ensure their protection by only intercepting transactions with high-risk counterparties. FailSafe collaborates with Forta’s Scam Detector to provide real-time threat intelligence about smart contracts and EOAs that engage in scams and other end-user attacks, allowing the system to accurately determine risk.
How Scam Detector Works
The Scam Detector is powered by an array of key Forta bots, each designed to track particular types of threats. These bots have been programmed to monitor for ice phishing, address poisoning, rake tokens, token impersonation, fraudulent NFT orders, pig butchering, gas minting, sleep minting, hard rug pulls, soft rug pulls, and wash trading.
In addition, the Detector uses brand-new predictive techniques to identify on-chain addresses that are linked to known scammers, as well as contracts that closely resemble those used by known scammers.
- The Scam Detector receives notifications from a group of basic bots, such as alerts regarding phishing attacks linked to a specific address.
- The incoming alerts are processed, and labels are created (for example label: Address 0x123 receives a scammer label).
- Labels are stored permanently on Forta Network and FailSafe’s Redis cache, providing scalability and low latency for effective action.
- FailSafe checks the threat intelligence database for potential risk when it detects a FailSafe-protected address in a transaction.
- FailSafe promptly halts and diverts specified assets to the user’s Recovery Vault if a high-risk counterparty is detected during a pending transaction.
FailSafe aims to provide a marketplace for the Forta Network contributors, offering configurable alerts and attacks to end-users.
