A critical vulnerability in EOS blockchain can allow attackers to remotely execute arbitrary code on network nodes and establish control over them. This is reported by the cnLedger.
An attacker can deploy a smart contract with malicious code on the supernode of EOS, which will execute the contract and activate the bug. Once such a contract is included in the block, all full nodes can be attacked, cnLedger says.
The Chinese company also called on cybersecurity experts to study blockchain projects more thoroughly, since in the future vulnerabilities could be found in other cryptocurrencies.
Just yesterday, the massive sale of Ethereum tokens on the Bitfinex exchange was linked to the EOS project team. As a result, the rate of the second on the capitalization of the crypto currency decreased significantly.
