The team ChainSecurity notify the kernel developers of Ethereum and the community about the found vulnerabilities in the network refresh Constantinople. After this statement, the key stakeholders of the community, Ethereum has decided to postpone the planned launch of the fork, which was to be held on the block under No. 7080000 16 Jan 2019.
For this reason, all holders of the complete node (including the operators, miners, wallet services, and so on) need to be updated to a new version of Geth, or Parity immediately before the detection unit 7080000. According to the plan, this network block will be approximately 32 hours since the announcement. To be exact — on January 17 at 7 a.m. GMT.
What to do for a normal user?
If you are a user of Ethereum, but it does not keep its own node, then nothing needs to be done.
What we must do miners, exchanges and operators of nod?
To upgrade the Geth and/or Parity to new versions immediately after their release.
