According to the development team supporting EOS, the recent finding of what have been known as “epic vulnerabilities” in the blockchain project’s source code will not delay developers from shipping the software on time.
The EOS developers writing on Twitter condemned media outlets who reported that the recently-discovered vulnerability will prevent developers from releasing the EOS mainnet on time.
“Media has incorrectly reported a potential delay in the release of EOSIO V1 due to software vulnerabilities,” the team said. “Our team has already fixed most and is hard at work with the remaining ones. EOSIO V1 is on schedule; please stay tuned to our EOSIO channels for official information.”
Reports from Qihoo 360 states that according to the Chinese cybersecurity company that initially discovered the vulnerability, the bug that would have made it possible for a hacker to take control of the network’s nodes by uploading a malicious smart contract to the EOS network.
Yet, EOS lead developer Daniel Larimer swiftly handled the vulnerability once Qihoo 360 made him recognize it, so the development team claimed there is nothing stopping the software’s production release.
