I guess this is the fix here?

Can anyone explain the technical details of this bug/fix? I'll give a 100% upvote for good answers. ;-)


the significance is $31m


Yes, of course, but I am asking for a technical explanation of the patch I linked to. How was the previous version vulnerable, and how does the patch fix it? (Edited my comment to reflect this)

Wow, the hits just keep on coming for Ethereum. Not good.


where are your coins really safe?

Resteeming - that's awful news for those with holdings.

This is why you use your own hardware wallets


it's also why wallets clearly need to be improved - and more hardware wallets need to be available - lots of opportunity for whoever cracks that nut!

I believe MyEtherWallet already stopped allowing Parity as an option to access wallets a month ago.


Yep, MEW is fine


Still absolutely crazy though that millions got stolen like that LOL

Buy more ERC-20 and then cry later.

the rest of the other crypto except that 31 million worth as take by a black hat during this situation has been drained by white hats.

Lol.. rekt

Covering eyes...
