Another day, another crypto-related fail

Tue Nov 07, 2017 10:37 pm

Tech Crunch is reporting another vulnerability affecting Etherium.

[edit: adding some context]

The same guys that enabled the recent theft of lots of valuable Etherium have now enabled the 'freezing' of Etherium in their wallets. I'm not sure of the numbers, but it sounds like at least as much value as last time has been affected.

Who cares if it's broken? We will just make another new fork while pre-mining said fork coins before release and make it out like a bandit.

This vulnerability isn't in Ethereum itself, it is in one of the wallet applications.
Nostalgia isn't what it used to be.

I'll add some fluff to the first post.
