A reminder to STOP RUNNING versions of bitcoin affected by CVE-2018-17144 A.S.A.P.: these are:
- 0.14.0 to 0.16.2
- 0.17.0rc1 to 3
Upgrade to 0.16.3 if possible!
A patched 0.14 version is underway, v0.17.0rc4 and v0.15.2 have been tagged, binaries are coming—for now use the branch or apply one-line patch https://github.com/bitcoin/bitcoin/commit/4b8a3f5d235f40be8102506ab26caad005cc40d6
Any altcoins/forks based on this code should also apply the above patch ASAP and do a release! The importance of this cannot be overstated.
