Ethereum Hard Fork   Fanfare Diminished as Vulnerability is Discovered Ethereum Hard Fork Fanfare Diminished as Vulnerability is Discovered
The upcoming hard fork on the Ethereum network has been delayed after a vulnerability in the code was discovered which would make it possible for malicious actor to steal funds through manipulation of smart contract architecture. The upcoming Ethereum hard fork, which was supposed to happen today (January 16th) has been postponed at the eleventh hour, after a vulnerability in the code was discovered. This vulnerability, if exploited, would allow malicious actors to repeatedly siphon ETH out of a smart contract through a bug similar to that which led to the DAO hack. As Ethereum, eventually through the implementation of the Constantinople upgrade, will transition from a proof-of-work to proof-of-stake consensus model, a number of updates need to be implemented which will slowly bring about this transition. The update scheduled for this month was a step in this process, reducing the mining reward for Ethereum miners. This article was discovered by us on 2019-01-16 21:10:45.
