Feathercoin daemon and wallet production version 0.17.0.2

Zeromq security bug fix


  • Moderators | Tip Wellenreiter

    Feathercoin release 0.17.0.1 has a vulnerable version of the dependency to the zeromq library and puts the users which have this feature enabled at risk for a remote-code-execution bug related to CVE-2019-6250 .

    Feathercoin release 0.17.0.2 fixed this bug by using zeromq version 4.3.1

    • Users compiling their own version of Feathercoin-wallet or daemon and are using the depends folder of the code to compile the dependencies should update to version 0.17.0.2

    • Users using the pre-compiled binaries for Linux Windows and MAC should also update to 0.17.0.2

    • Users using the Linux PPA should have received a patch for zeromq through their Linux packet manager and therefore don’t need to take any actions.

    • Users not using the zeromq features don’t need to take any actions.

    The pre-compiled binaries for version 0.17.0.2 are under compilation and will be available within the next days.
