EOS vulnerabilities have already been fixed: 360 report 'sensational'

EOS has already fixed the bugs revealed by Chinese security giant 360, according to reports of the Chinese media outlet Jinse.

Earlier today news broke that it was possible for attackers to take full control of the nodes because the platform code would allow arbitrary code to be executed remotely on EOS. According to Chinese reports, these vulnerabilities were called 'epic' by 360. 

Jinse now states that the vulnerabilities pointed out by 360 now have been repaired. The person in charge of the 360 technology department told Jinse: "This is a serious problem in itself, but it is not difficult to fix it. It should not have a major impact."

There were doubts about the launch of the EOS mainnet on the 2nd of June because of the vulnerabilities, but now that the bugs have reportedly been fixed, there should be no problems ahead of the launch.

Jinse states that 'the description of 360 on the EOS loopholes is rather sensational', speculating that the security giant may have used this opportunity to get publicity. On the other hand, Jinse notes that there is a real danger in the rapid developing blockchain industry that loopholes in the code exist.

EOS is still over 6% down in the last 24 hours, with a market cap of around $10 billion.
