Proposal Long Description :
We have identified multiple vulnerabilities in NavCoin Core. In this proposal we offer help to NavCoin developers to understand vulnerability #1 and implement a proper fix. This vulnerability allows an attacker to crash any node the attacker can connect to at very low cost.
We propose two milestones:
- 50% when the developers confirm the vulnerability.
- 50% when the fix is merged to the master branch.
We have a proven track record, which you can verify on our blog: https://www.publish0x.com/art-of-bug . For example, recently we have helped Emercoin developers to fix multiple bugs in their core wallet. One of the bugs allowed an attacker to perform 51% attack with very low cost and was in their code base for more than 2 years. You can find more details about this bug in our blog post.
If this proposal is successful, we will create more proposals in the future for other issues we discovered.
