The development team behind EOS said that the recent discovery of what has been described as "epic vulnerabilities" in the project source blockchain the code will not prevent developers from shipping the software on time.
Writing on Twitter, EOS developers have criticized the media who reported that the newly discovered vulnerability – which according to the researchers would allow an attacker to take control of all the nodes connected to the network – would delay the publication of the main network EOS . ]
Media incorrectly reported a potential delay in the publication of EOSIO V1 due to software vulnerabilities. Our team has already repaired the most and works hard with others. EOSIO V1 is on time; stay tuned to our EOSIO channels for official information.

"Media reported wrongly a potential delay in the publication of EOSIO V1 due to software vulnerabilities," said the team. "Our team has already repaired the most and works hard with others.EOSIO V1 is on time; please stay tuned to our EOSIO channels for official information."
According to Qihoo 360, the Chinese cybersecurity company that identified the vulnerability for the first time, the bug would have allowed an attacker to take control of the network nodes by uploading a malicious contract on the EOS network. They could then not only manipulate transactions, but also use the nodes as a de facto botnet to exploit another cryptocurrency or launch a cyber attack.
However, the main EOS developer, Daniel Larimer, quickly corrected the vulnerability once Qihoo 360 informed him, so that the development team said that "I have not been there. there was no reason to delay the release of the software.
As CCN reported, the creator of EOS Block.one is about to reap $ 4.2 billion from the initial supply of EOS parts (ICO), which has started last June and is a few days from its conclusion. But perhaps even more remarkable that this figure is that the company has managed to meet it even while maintaining that the company will not continue to develop the protocol software after its release.
It is important to note that EOS token purchasers who have purchased tokens outside the crowdsale or who have moved their chips to different ethereum addresses must register their chips on the OIC website by June 2 for make sure they can access it.
