In response to these concerns, Ethereum co founder Vitalik Buterin stated, during a developers meeting on February 15, that the scheduled codebase modifications will not create vulnerabilities on the Ethereum blockchain . According to statements from other Ethereum developers, the Skinny CREATE2 feature, which is part of the ethereum improvement proposal (EIP) 1014, could potentially introduce a security threat to the Ethereum network.As CryptoGlobe covered, Skinny CREATE2 allows users to interact with a smart contract that has not yet been issued on the Ethereum blockchain. As explained by Ethereum s developers, Skinny CREATE2 enables interactions with addresses that do not exist yet on chain but can be relied on to only possibly eventually contain code. This feature may be exploited because smart contracts could be programmed to alter their address after they ve been issued, according to several Ethereum developers.

Bill gates started investing in the development of mosquitoes mutants.Every year thousands of Americans suffer from malaria. To once and forever put an end to this epidemic, bill gates decided to create a sort of male mosquitoes, which when destroyed would be mating females, which are known as vectors of the disease, reports the Chronicle.info with reference to the news of the world.
The Register, which broke the story, claims that the code is from Microsoft 's Shared Source Kit and includes "the source to the base Windows 10 hardware drivers plus Redmond 's PnP code, its USB and Wi Fi stacks, its storage drivers, and ARM specific OneCore kernel code. " The site goes on to note that this information can be scoured for security vulnerabilities, which could then be used to attack Windows from new vectors that weren 't previously known. That 's true, as far as it goes, and it 's one reason why security audits on source code are so important (and also extremely time consuming and difficult).
The blog post states that the information related to payments was stored separately from this stolen data in what Zomato claimed to be a highly secure PCI data Security Standard compliant vault. It assured the users that none of their payment information or credit card data had been leaked or stolen. However, the passwords have been reset for all the affected users and these users have been logged out of the app and the website, Zomato added. Zomato said that its security teams were scanning all the possible vectors of the breach and trying to close any such gaps in the environment. The company said, ; So far, it looks like an internal (human) security breach some employee s development account got compromised.;But since the passwords have been reset for all affected users, they would not be affected, Zomato assured. It said that these users have been logged out and their accounts were secure. It said, "Your credit card information on Zomato is fully secure, so there s nothing to worry about there. " The company said that it would be working over the next couple of days and weeks to plug any more security gaps that could be found in the system.
In fact, the number of records compromised last year spiked 566 percent from 600 million to more than four billion (with Yahoo comprising 1.5 billion of that total), found the 30 page report, which examined data breaches, attack vectors, targeted industries and perpetrators in 2016. But beyond the enormity of the records stolen, the IBM researchers also detected a shift in the strategies used by cyberthieves. That is, the traditional prize for bad actors has traditionally been structured data, such as credit cards, passwords and personal health information. But, as the competition for such booty heated up and the supply began to exceed the demand, the study noted a shift by cybercriminals to go after what it termed unstructured data email archives, business documents, intellectual property and source code. This shift, the researchers said, resulted in the exposure of the "complete digital footprints" of a number of companies.
