The Ethereum Foundation warned Mist browser users about a "critical vulnerability" in all existing versions that threatens private keys.

The statement says that the Ethereum Wallet is not effected. Developers urge users not to use "untested" websites for transactions.

According to the representative of the team Mist Everton Fraga, the update of the basic software of the Electron browser is constantly postponed. In this regard, the browser can go to Muon software, which is updated much more often. 

dOrg to Become The First DAO With Legal Status in US

DAO is a company in which the centralized leadership and hierarchy is replaced by a smart contract

The decentralized autonomous organization (DAO) dOrg based on the DAOstack framework registered dOrg LLC in Vermont, USA. This was the first precedent in the United States, according to law firm Gravel & Shea.

According to the company, the blockchain-based limited liability company (BBLLC) has a legal status, which allows it to enter into agreements and protect the interests of participants in accordance with applicable law.

Note that a DAO is a company in which the centralized leadership and hierarchy is replaced by a smart contract. Decisions in such organizations are made by voting by the participants, which provides consensus.

dOrg asked us to help design a DAO legal wrapper after discovering the potential of BBLLCs. We believe that dOrg is now the first legal entity that directly references blockchain code as its source of governance. Its material operations and ownership interests are managed entirely on-chain.

dOrg believes that they have made the first step in integrating the DAO format into the existing economy.

Some time ago, Moloch DAO attracted 1000 ETH from Vitalik Buterin, Joseph Lubin, start-up ConsenSys and non-profit organization Ethereum Foundation.
