Developer Urges Upgrade Following Fix of Critical Security Flaw in Dogecoin Network Last Year

Blockchain security firm Holborn has discovered multiple exploitable vulnerabilities affecting the Dogecoin DOGE/USD network. One critical vulnerability related to peer-to-peer (p2p) communications could result in malicious actors crafting consensus messages and taking individual nodes offline. This could lead to ‘51% attacks’, which are blockchain restructurings by bad actors who own 51% of a cryptocurrency’s hashing or validating power. Holborn has identified a zero-day RPC vulnerability in Dogecoin that could impact individual miners. Dogecoin Core developer Patril Lodder said that Holborn has already fixed the vulnerabilities in version 1.14.6, which was released last year. Holborn researchers warned that the Rab13s vulnerability could put over $25 billion of digital assets at risk. Variants of these zero-days have been found in other networks, including Litecoin and Zcash. At the time of writing, Dogecoin was up 3.79% in the last 24 hours, trading at $0.075.
