At present, we now have disclosed the second set of vulnerabilities from the Ethereum Basis Bug Bounty Program! 🥳 These vulnerabilities had been beforehand found and reported on to the Ethereum Basis.
When bugs are reported and validated, the Ethereum Basis coordinates disclosures to affected groups and helps cross-check vulnerabilities throughout all shoppers. The Bug Bounty Program presently accepts studies for the next shopper software program:
- Go Ethereum
Along with shopper software program, the Bug Bounty Program additionally covers the Deposit Contract, Execution Layer & Consensus Layer Specs and Solidity. 🙏

For the reason that final vulnerability disclosure has been fairly eventful with occasions such because the Merge 🐼 and the max bounty reward enhance to $250,000. 💰
The best paid reward throughout this era was $50,000. This was awarded to scio for reporting a problem wherein Lighthouse beacon nodes crashed through malicious BlocksByRange messages containing a very massive depend worth. You possibly can learn extra about this particular vulnerability here. 💥

There are additionally many unsung heroes reminiscent of shopper group builders, group members, and plenty of extra who’ve spent numerous hours triaging, cross-checking, and mitigating vulnerabilities earlier than they may very well be exploited.
Your immense efforts have been instrumental to making sure Ethereum’s safety. Thanks!
