Developers Fix Parity Ethereum Node Vulnerability, Urge All Node Operators to Update

A bug found in the Parity node/wallet software threatened a considerable proportion of the Ethereum infrastructure. Fortunately, the company has already issued a patch to fix the vulnerability. The issue was discovered on February 3rd when Parity received several reports that attackers were able to send a specially-crafted RPC request to public Parity Ethereum nodes. “On February 3rd, we received several reports that an attacker can send a specially-crafted RPC request to a public Parity Ethereum node (any version pre 2.2.9-stable and pre 2.3.2-beta) and that node will crash,” the announcement read. The bug had opened up an attack vector to allow nodes to be forced offline by potential attackers. If undiscovered, the attack could have threatened a sizeable portion of the Ethereum infrastructure. It would appear that the only affected nodes were the ones synced up to the JSON-RPC public services like Infura, MyEtherWallet, and MyCrypto, however, all Parity node operators are encouraged

Bitcoin Investors Are Turning to Gold, Says CEO of Van Eck

Jan Van Eck, CEO of Van Eck Associates, suggested that investors are now turning their attention to gold, leaving Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies behind. In recent interview with CNBC, Jan Van Eck noted that Bitcoin managed to pull “a little bit of demand away from gold” in 2017, but added that data showed things are changing: “Interestingly, we just polled 4,000 Bitcoin investors and their number one investment for 2019 is actually gold. So gold lost to Bitcoin and now it’s going the other way,” he said. During the same interview while talking about Bitcoin exchange-traded funds (ETFs), Tim Seymour, founder and chief investment officer of Seymour Asset Management, declared that Bitcoin’s function as a store of value is questionable: “Not only have we lost all liquidity on the underlying but truly outside of the existential blockchain argument, it’s been very difficult to argue store of value which is really what we started hearing about. Gold is a store of value and there’s no

Ethereum Constantinople Upgrade Delayed Over Security Vulnerability

The long-awaited Constantinople fork of the Ethereum network has been delayed earlier this week due to potential security issues identified by security audit company ChainSecurity on January 15. The security bug could potentially make some smart contracts on Ethereum vulnerable to a so-called “re-entrancy attack,” enabling an attacker to steal other people’s ETH. Following ChainSecurity’s findings, key stakeholders within the Ethereum community decided to postpone the Constantinople fork, initially scheduled to activate on block 7,080,000 on January 16. #Constantinople upgrade is temporarily postponed out of caution following a consensus decision by #Ethereum developers, security professionals and other community members. More information and instructions are below. — Ethereum (@ethereum) January 15, 2019 The bug is explained in detail in a blog post by ChainSecurity.

Ethereum Classic Developers Hope to Get a Full Picture of a Potential 51% Attack Soon

Ethereum Classic’s (ETC) development team admitted a malicious attack on the network had taken place and hopes the full extent of the incident will be known rather soon than later. According to at least two different block explorers, Bitfly and Blockscout, Ethereum Classic saw more than 100 blocks “reorganized” during a potential 51 percent attack late Sunday. At the same time, it was reported on Monday that an abnormal hash rate going into a single mining pool had been detected, potentially causing mass reorganizations (reorgs) of mined blocks. Ethereum Classic developers initially refuted such claims, however had to admit a cause for concerns at a later stage, urging exchanges and mining pools to increase the number of transaction confirmations. To all exchanges and mining pools please allow a significantly higher confirmation time on withdrawals and deposits (+400) cc @OKEx @ExchangeXGroup @HuobiGroup @digifinex @binance @bitfinex — Ethereum Classic (@eth
