BitPay comments on the Andreas Antonopoulos BIP70/Payment Protocol video
If you don't know who Andreas Antonopoulos is, let me give you a quick introduction. Since 2012, he's been a full-time advocate for cryptocurrency. He speaks at conferences, writes books and articles about cryptocurrency. His works include content aimed at developers like Mastering Bitcoin and introductory resources like The Internet of Money. He also has a YouTube channel with hundreds of videos and millions of views. Last week, he posted a video called Bitcoin Q&A: BitPay and BIP-70 controversy: As most familiar with his work would expect, Andreas explained the issues clearly and examined the controversy in a fair and balanced way. He explained the security tradeoffs between BIP-21 and BIP-70 (or Payment Protocol). He provided excellent insight and ( even we'll admit) a valid critique of our decision to enforce BIP-70.

Bitpay Statement on NPM Package Vulnerability
We have learned from a Copay GitHub issue report that a third-party NodeJS package used by the Copay and BitPay apps had been modified to load malicious code which could be used to capture users' private keys. Currently we have only confirmed that the malicious code was deployed on versions 5.0.2 through 5.1.0 of our Copay and BitPay apps. However, the BitPay app was not vulnerable to the malicious code. We are still investigating whether this code vulnerability was ever exploited against Copay users. Our team is continuing to investigate this issue and the extent of the vulnerability. In the meantime, if you are using any Copay version from 5.0.2 to 5.1.0, you should not run or open the app. A security update version (5.2.0) has been released and will be available for all Copay and BitPay wallet users in the app stores momentarily.
