Update: Mogelijke 51% aanval op Verge (XVG)

Er is mogelijk een poging gedaan tot een 51% aanval op Verge (XVG). Een fout in de code van XVG werd misbruikt, dit meldt een genormeerde gebruiker op Bitcointalk. Feit is in ieder geval dat de hacker een flinke hoeveelheid Verge heeft weten te bemachtigen door het misbruiken van de fout.

Kort nadat deze post op Bitcointalk verscheen is de hacker gestopt met mijnen. De aanvaller heeft dertien uur (!) lang beloningen in de vorm van XVG gekregen, elke seconde opnieuw.

Door de fout in de code was het mogelijk vals te spelen tijdens het minen van de coin. De exploit zorgde ervoor dat je door een trucje Verge kon laten ‘denken’ dat je blocks hebt gemijnd terwijl dat niet zo is.  De hacker was door deze fout in staat om één block per seconde te mijnen. Normaal gesproken doe je veel langer over een block én is het nooit zo vaak achter elkaar dezelfde partij die de beloning krijgt.

Update: Verge heeft inmiddels officieel gereageerd en zegt het probleem al te hebben opgelost. 

Update 2: De aanval lijkt toch niet afgewend door Verge. Op de blockchain is duidelijk te zien dat er enorm veel beloningen worden uitgedeeld, bijna elke seconde. Dat hoort niet te kunnen. 

De originele post op Bitcointalk:
Posted here for reference as the other Topic is self-moderated and this will probably get deleted:

There’s currently a >51% attack going on on XVG which exploits a bug in retargeting in the XVG code.

Usually to successfully mine XVG blocks, every “next” block must be of a different algo.. so for example scrypt,then x17, then lyra etc.

Due to several bugs in the XVG code, you can exploit this feature by mining blocks with a spoofed timestamp. When you submit a mined block (as a malicious miner or pool) you simply
set a false timestamp to this block one hour ago and XVG will then “think” the last block mined on that algo was one hour ago.. Your next block, the subsequent block
will then have the correct time.. And since it’s already an hour ago (at least that is what the network thinks) it will allow this block to be added to the main chain as well.

This is what is going on since about 06:00 UTC of 04.04.2018:

As you can see in the text above, those blocks are all subsequent, so one miner gets them all and you see there’s 90 min difference between all the blocks, thats one bug the miner is
exploiting. You also see the correct time is the latter time.. so the last block ended on 13:51:06 and the block before was 12:17:47 and the block with the correct time before that one
was at 13:51:05 .. That means the hacker is mining one block per second !

The vergeDEV @ Discord says “everything is okay – there’s nothing to fix”..

Since about 99% blocks by legit pools are rejected – and the dev team is not able to understand this problem, i’m closing and removing all VERGE pools from suprnova.

Here’s a incomplete list of the malicious addresses:
