Five Critical Vulnerabilities Discovered in EOS in 2019

EOS.io, the company behind the fourth-largest cryptocurrency by market cap EOS, handed out five bounties for critical vulnerabilities found in their software in 2019.

Breach disclosure platform HackerOne revealed that  $40,750 was awarded to five white hat hackers on the platform by EOS.io on January 10. Another researcher reportedly received a $10,000 bounty on January 11.

As the details on the vulnerability reports that have been awarded a bounty were not disclosed with the public, EOS managed to keep its price stable throughout January. The coin lost less than a half of a percent of its value in the past 24 hours at press time, CoinMarketCap showed.

And while multiple vulnerabilities have also been discovered in other crypto companies this year, namely Cobinhood and Coinbase, EOS has been leading the way since 2018. Out of the $878,000 awarded in 2018, EOS.io was responsible for over 60 percent of the bounties.
