Right this moment, we’ve disclosed the second set of vulnerabilities from the Ethereum Basis Bug Bounty Program! 🥳 These vulnerabilities had been beforehand found and reported on to the Ethereum Basis.
When bugs are reported and validated, the Ethereum Basis coordinates disclosures to affected groups and helps cross-check vulnerabilities throughout all shoppers. The Bug Bounty Program at present accepts stories for the next consumer software program:
- Go Ethereum
Along with consumer software program, the Bug Bounty Program additionally covers the Deposit Contract, Execution Layer & Consensus Layer Specs and Solidity. 🙏
