Episode 7: $300M worth of bugs

Download audio

Imagine – your company’s code and data are exposed. How long will it take for malicious hackers to find vulnerabilities? To steal users’ personal information?

For developers that build on Ethereum that situation is not a distant possibility, it’s an everyday reality. All the code, the state and the calls to their programs are publicly accessible and live forever on the blockchain. Add to it the fact that their code will manipulate money. Getting rid of all the bugs and holes becomes crucial.

In this episode we’ll talk about software that finds bugs in other software. Specifically ways of verifying Ethereum smart contracts.

The story begins in the summer of 2017 when someone is able to steal $30M worth of ether.

Episode was produced by Andrey Salomatin.
