The Alarming Vulnerabilities in Dogecoin Codebase Uncovered by Halborn’s Review

Halborn, a cybersecurity firm, conducted a review of the open-source codebase used by Dogecoin and discovered critical vulnerabilities that could be exploited by hackers to steal funds or disrupt network operations. However, after a broader review, Halborn found that over 280 other cryptocurrency networks were also affected by similar vulnerabilities, highlighting a systemic issue within many blockchain protocols where security may not have been given adequate attention during development. The vulnerabilities found in peer-to-peer (p2p) related communications are the most critical and could lead to a 51% attack where attackers can craft consensus messages and take nodes offline. Halborn has developed an exploit kit for Rab13s that includes a proof of concept aimed at demonstrating the attacks on different networks and has reached out to affected networks for responsible disclosure. The report serves as an urgent call for all crypto projects to prioritize cybersecurity measures to protect user assets and ensure the long-term sustainability of their platforms.
