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.

Since acquiring Poloniex five months ago, we’ve primarily focused on improving the core product experience and stabilizing the performance of the exchange. We improved deposit and withdrawal reliability, updated our customer onboarding process and cleared over 175,000 legacy support tickets. We are now also investing in new ways to grow Poloniex into a premiere destination for crypto asset trading — the addition of EOS is just the first step. [...] At this time, we are only planning to support EOS mainnet tokens and will not be accepting deposits of the ERC-20 variant or providing conversion to mainnet tokens. In addition, we will not be supporting EOS airdrops for the time being.
