Vessel 0.2.7 - Windows Vulnerability Fix

in #vessel4 years ago

This release is an update to address a security vulnerability within Electron/Windows and all Windows users are encouraged to update to 0.2.7 as soon as possible. Linux and macOS users are unaffected.

What is Vessel?

Vessel is a desktop wallet for the Steem blockchain, which can be downloaded and run on your computer. Vessel is free to use and open source, and is designed to be a way to help secure your account on the Steem blockchain. While using Vessel, your keys/password never leave the app, transactions are signed locally, and then broadcast to the network much like any other downloadable cryptocurrency wallet.

Here's a few of the other most recent updates, as well as the original announcement:

Download Vessel

Vessel is still beta software and it's recommended that you treat it as such. Before committing irreversible actions on your account (such as large outgoing transfers), please test with smaller amounts to ensure it's working properly on your computer.

Download available on github for macOS (.dmg file), Windows (.exe file) and Linux (.snap and .deb files).

What's new in 0.2.7

The only change in 0.2.7 is an upgrade to electron to patch a security vulnerability disclosed on Monday the 22nd. More information can be found here:

A special thanks out to @sneak for notifying me of this issue.


Love the work you doing, thanks for helping the community.

Yes thanks from me too :-)

sire this new fix is really great and Lovely, as i read here and now every thing becomes more secure and trusted,, pls i do like to make my own suggestions, is it possible the vessel compatible only for Windows, get a version for the Android users also, it do be awesome sire, vessel is easier and can be use to delegate sp and its very easy if it has an android app i think many steemians will use it as its a whole lot simpler in delegating and securing account.

Thank you bug This update release is intended to address a security vulnerability within Windows and all Windows users are encouraged.

Nice. Really did not know this!

@jesta It seems that users in China can't use your wallet. What a pity!
In fact, I want to use.

Why not? Unable to connect to servers or unable to downoad?

The software that disconnects to the internet so often(too frequently).
Maybe disconnects to the servers, I didn't really know, I'm not good at coding(programming)
And I was a little afraid of putting my key in the box of that software.

The public RPC servers have been going through some growing pains lately, which is likely the source of the disconnects.

Thanks for your answers and your contributions to steemit, I 'll keep focusing on you. Many thanks.

Could this be what is preventing me from delegating at the moment? I get an error when I try delegating Steem.

Btw, Thanks for the awesome wallet.

The most common error I see happening with delegations is related to power downs. If you're powering down your balance, you can't delegate. But the connection issues could also be playing a part in it, if that's not the case.

Yes, that was it. I forgot I had a small power down going. Thanks for taking the time to reply.

How can we determine this in an rpc call? Hmm... I just canot help you test. I need to upgrade my machines first.

Great job, it's wonderful how you're helping this platform grow.. Keep it up.

dear my friends, please please please Look At My Post and So that everyone can see...


everyday i find something new on steemit.. @jesta please will need to know about vessel

If only I knew where to check the version. Do I have to download it again or is there anyway how to upgrade it manually?

It's in the title of the window, and if it doesn't show a version, it's pretty old :)

To upgrade you've just gotta download it again and rerun the installer.

Thanks a lot!

i like the post

It's a big help and thanks for posting such a informative blog. So this wallet does it do on Android apps too?

No mobile support at this time

Thask ingormation

Thank you jesta! Professional is professional, great!

Love the work you doing, thanks for helping

thanks for the update @jesta
i seems the vessel is really simple to use

nice post contains useful information so voted and resteemed and voted as witness in list also @jesta

Now if they can patch spectre everything will be fine :P

Great work you are doing, 👍

Your description is complete and perfect!

My interpretation is that:

Vessel is a desktop wallet that provides adequate control, security and access based on specific requirements while "your keys/password never leaves the app".

They told me that if u want to achieve something you have to describe it with sources and your article has it all.

Thank you for addressing the security vulnerability.


Nice and very informatic post

Thank you for all you've done for the steemit community! :)

And continue to do!

Great read!

Anything for Mac/Apple?

Hi. Not sure if you willsee this. I installed vessel and it says connection error. Trying another server just does nothing.

@jesta Good, good. A question; There is no Vessel program but for 32 bits, I've been searching but I can not find any. Could you please support me with that?

Really?? It is only for 64 bits as I recall. If you mean you cannot find a 32 bit version. You may be able to compile it yourself. It was a long time ago I wrote something about that. Probably was not necessary al the steps I did but it was enough.

So have you kept with your original design for the steem urls or have decided to remove the need for the leading slash, or have you settled on something else?

finds this a nice post that helps people thank you

New to this, and trying it! Thanks!
