Bug Fixed in Tezos (XTZ) Mainnet

A bug was discovered in the Tezos mainnet a week after its official launch. According to tzscan.io, on September 24, the block release time increased from 1 to 20 minutes due to the vulnerability.

The project’s developers fixed the problem in a short period of time, and on September 25, morning, the Tezos mainnet started working normally.

Bug between the baker and the node. The two communicate over json but the json serializer incorrectly handled some control characters. Immediate fix was to patch the serializer. Medium term fix is that the baker and node really should communicate using the binary RPCs instead.

Tezos (XTZ), a new decentralized blockchain that governs itself by establishing a true digital commonwealth, had its mainnet launched on September 17.
