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

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.

TIL: "Although best known as the bankers lamp today, it was originally called the Emeralite, a combination of emerald and light.

... green was and still is, thought to be psychologically soothing, enhancing concentration and focus.

This belief was prominent in detailed-oriented occupations such as accounting, auditing, and budgeting, all of which are banking activities. Actually, this is the same reason why bankers and accountants often wore those green eyeshades/visors back in the days."
