Después de varias noticias relacionadas a los hackers que se aprovechan de las vulnerabilidades de Ethereum. El día de hoy nos indican que aparece el “El bug de los 280 millones”.

Según la compañía este error fue ocasionado accidentalmente y lo que ocasiona es que no pueden sacar fondos de las carteras multi-sigwallets, tratando de corregir el exploit de multi-sig que fue aprovechado en julio por los Hackers.

Following the fix for the original multi-sig issue that had been exploited on 19th of July (function visibility), a new version of the Parity Wallet library contract was deployed on 20th of July. However that code still contained another issue – it was possible to turn the Parity Wallet library contract into a regular multi-sig wallet and become an owner of it by calling the initWallet function. It would seem that issue was triggered accidentally 6th Nov 2017 02:33:47 PM +UTC and subsequently a user suicided the library-turned-into-wallet, wiping out the library code which in turn rendered all multi-sig contracts unusable since their logic (any state-modifying function) was inside the library.
