Enhance cybersecurity awareness and survivability for DoD, industry partners, and academia in the face of the ever-increasing threat of cyber attacks. Cybersecurity (CS) includes managing risks related to the use, processing, storage, and transmission of information and the systems and processes used for those purposes, including analog and physical form. CS includes information availability, identification and authentication, confidentiality, integrity, and non-repudiation as well as the economic considerations with respect to selection of CS techniques, CS processes, and industry trends.
How will cyber criminals exploit the RCE vulnerability in EOS Blockchain using S
Colleagues, Chinese researchers at Qihoo 360 have discovered an RCE (remote code execution) vulnerability in Blockchain EOS when using smart contracts. This bug potentially allows hackers to take complete control over node servers. Commonly referred to as Blockchain 3.0, EOS is an open source platform smart contracts. The RCE flaw is considered by some to be a 51% attack. Bottom line question: How vulnerable are node servers on a Blockchain to the RCE bug? Specific mitigation methods are rather illusive. However, CSD recommends your review of “Bug Characteristics in Blockchain Systems: A Large Scale Empirical Study” published by the Singapore Management University.
