Chinese company Qihoo 360, engaged in cybersecurity, has discovered a number of vulnerabilities in the EOS network. When this news reached the EOS team, the problem was solved within a few hours.
EOS is safe
A representative of the EOS development team said that the launch of the main cryptocurrency network will not happen until the problem is fully resolved. Initially, a vulnerability could allow potential hackers to execute arbitrary code on the EOS network.
Vulnerabilities, before being corrected, could allow cyber attacks to take place, as well as lead to data leakage. Moreover, a possible attack could have far-reaching consequences if we take into account the nature of the detachment. The appearance of one infected node could endanger all other nodes.
Fortunately, the problem was identified in time, and the EOS team was able to quickly prove their professionalism and efficiency.
