Zerocoin’s bug that allows hackers to burn honest users’ coins is still not fixed

Private financial transactions, enabled by the Zerocoin Protocol. With Zcoin’s Zerocoin Technology, you can “mint” a coin found on the public ledger into a private coin. When it is time to spend your minted coin, the owner of the minted coin does not need to be revealed. The process of minting and spending a coin can be completed as many times as you want, ensuring complete privacy.

Zerocoin’s bug that allows hackers to burn honest users’ coins is still not fixed

Fri Apr 13, 2018 3:11 pm

Zerocoin has a ‘denial of service’ bug that allows for attackers to burn honest users’ coins. This fact has been known for almost two months now, but remains unfixed.

The problem was highlighted by Tim Ruffing in his presentation ‘A Tale of Zero Coins‘ at the Genesis Conference in London in February.
