A Bug In The EOS Application Allowed The Player To Win 24 Times In A Row

A vulnerability in the decentralized EOS application DEOSBet allowed the player to win several times in a row. Due to a bug, the total payment amounted to $24 000.

Within an hour, the blockchain betting platform from the developers of DEOSGames 24 times paid the jackpot to the user under the nickname “runningsnail” in the amount of 197 EOS (about $1,000).

Likely, payments were made automatically. Each time the player transferred 10 EOS, DEOSBet paid him a win within 30 seconds.

Meanwhile, the developers of DEOSGames confirmed the vulnerability in the smart contract and said that they had made significant improvements.

It is currently unknown whether this vulnerability was present only in the DEOSBet application or it affected all smart contracts in the EOS network.
