ZCash Bug: team releases software fix

A ZCash bug has been discovered a few days ago and now the development team has released a new software update to fix this denial of service (DoS) vulnerability.

In fact, in a new blog post, Zooko Wilcox and Paige Peterson – both developers at ZCash – explained how the bug could allow an hacker to crash a zcash node remotely by sending a specific kind of transaction.

ZCash bug found on Wednesday

The bug was found in an update included in the ZCash’s 1.0.4 release, related to how transactions are given priority in a node’s mempool.

This vulnerability was discovered back on Wednesday (April 12nd, 2017).

The blog explains:

“ZcashCo, and several exchanges, wallet vendors, and miners have already deployed a mitigation as well as detectors for this attack vector. No attacks have been detected.”

Zcash published a software update to address this bug, asking users to upgrade their platforms in order to delete the denial of service risk.

The Zcash team  also commented that, should signs emerge that an attack attempt is being made, it would issue alerts and coordinate with related services on a response.

If you don’t know what I’m talking about, Zcash is a digital currency with the special feature of total anonymity thanks to its zero knowledge proof of work called zk-snarks.

Zcash Market Cap: top 10 cryptocurrencies

Zcash Market Cap climbed as much as $64.7m on April 4th, becoming one of the top 10 digital currencies by market capitalization.

This completely anonymous cryptocurrency was launched back in 2016 and it uses the so-called zero-knowledge proofs “zs-SNARKS” to help users hide their information during the transaction process.

In fact, the Zcash blockchain hides any information related to users and transaction amount, becoming one of the first completely anonymous digital currency together with Monero.

The major reason that helped to push zcash market cap is the rising supply of the protocol’s ZEC tokens, with the supply recently passing 1m ZEC.

While its token price rose to almost $6,000 after going live, the Zcash market cap grown only of about $1.9m.

Even if the current Zcash market cap fell back to twelfth place at press time, we expect it to rise again soon.

Best ZCash Wallet: store 20 digital currencies in 1 place

Are you looking for the best Zcash Wallet? Read here the ultimate guide about Zcash and find out how to store your coins in a safe place.

Zcash is one of the latest digital currencies appeared on the market. It is completely anonymous, as Zcash is based on a cryptographic tool called “zk-SNARK” that doesn’t require that the parties involved in a transaction exchange any information.

This means that on the blockchain you cannot read sender, receiver and amount-related information.

Also, another important feature of ZCash is that transactions clear in a fraction of the time, compared with bitcoin, for example.

New features for Zcash

Recently, the Zcash team published a new blog post in which they explained their plans to upgrade functionality of the digital currency that focuses on integrating new innovations into the protocol.

These changes include:

  •  A Payment disclosure feature that allow only people involved in the transaction to read the information embedded into the blockchain;
  •  inter-blockchain transactions with popular public blockchains such as bitcoin and ethereum will be available through a tool called XCAT (Cross-Chain Atomic Transactions).

Once implemented, these new protocol features will allow to issue Zcash tokens – similar to Ethereum-related ones.
