Over 40 bugs detected in top cryptos in last month, says HackerOne report

The last month has seen a number of security vulnerabilities detected in some of the top crypto networks. Researchers reported a total of 43 bugs to security team HackerOne, as reported by CryptoGlobe.

The bugs were reported between February 13 and March 13. Hackers found six software glitches in the OmiseGO (OMG) network, which is the 31st-largest crypto by market cap. There were also five significant flaws found in EOS, which has been the source of more bug bounties than any other network since its launch in early 2018.

Bugs were also found in the Augur, Tezos, Monero, and ICON platforms. A number of security flaws were detected in the Brave / BAT eco-system, but many of these may have been linked to wallets or third-party dApps, as the Brave browser software isn't fully decentralized.

In total, $23,675 was paid out in bug bounties, with $5,500 of this going to hackers who found EOS bugs.
