Coinbase had announced in late September that it is looking to quickly add new cryptocurrencies that meet its standards and meet local law compliance. The exchange recently started supporting Ethereum Classic, and now there’s talk that it could list Ripple as well. The exchange has justannounced that Coinbase Custody, its branch providing custodian service for institutional investors, is now adding support for Ripple (XRP).

In August 2019, Coinbase announced that it was targeted by a sophisticated hacking attack attempt in mid-June. This reported attack used spear-phishing and social engineering tactics (including sending fake e-mails from compromised email accounts and created a landing page at the University of Cambridge) and two Firefox browser zero-day vulnerabilities. One of the Firefox vulnerabilities could allow an attacker to escalate privileges from JavaScript on a browser page (CVE-2019–11707) and the second one could allow the attacker to escape the browser sandbox and execute code on the host computer (CVE-2019–11708). Coinbase's security team detected and blocked the attack, the network was not compromised, and no cryptocurrency was stolen.[39][40][41]


On February 16, 2018, Coinbase admitted that some customers were overcharged in error for credit and debit purchases of cryptocurrencies. The problem was initiated when banks and card issuers changed the merchant category code (MCC) for cryptocurrency purchases earlier this month. This meant that cryptocurrency payments would now be processed as "cash advances", meaning that banks and credit card issuers could begin charging customers cash-advance fees for cryptocurrency purchases. Any customers who purchased cryptocurrency on their exchange between January 22 and February 11, 2018 could have been affected. At first, Visa blamed Coinbase, telling the Financial Times on February 16 that it had "not made any systems changes that would result in the duplicate transactions cardholders are reporting." However, the latest statement from Visa and Worldpay on the Coinbase blog clarifies: "This issue was not caused by Coinbase."[45]


Coinbase recently announced that its customers in supported jurisdictions can send, receive, buy, and sell the USD Coin stablecoin (USDC) on its website and mobile applications. This marks Coinbase first entry into stablecoins, which have a fundamental difference as compared to other cryptocurrencies. A USDC is pegged to the price of a single US dollar (USD). Coinbase explains that one USDC is represented by one USD on the Ethereum blockchain.


如果目的IP地址显示不是同一网段的,那么A要实现和B的通讯,在流缓存条目中没有对应MAC地址条目,就将第一个正常数据包发送向一个缺省网关,这个缺省网关一般在操作系统中已经设好,这个缺省网关的IP对应第三层路由模块,所以对于不是同一子网的数据,最先在MAC表中放的是缺省网关的MAC地址(由源主机A完成);然后就由三层模块接收到此数据包,查询路由表以确定到达B的路由,将构造一个新的帧头,其中以缺省网关的MAC地址为源MAC地址,以主机B的MAC地址为目的MAC地址。通过一定的识别触发机制,确立主机A与B的MAC地址及转发端口的对应关系,并记录进流缓存条目表,以后的A到B的数据(三层交换机要确认是由A到B而不是到C的数据,还要读取帧中的IP地址。),就直接交由二层交换模块完成。这就通常所说的一次路由多次转发。 [3]
