Anonymous Security Researcher Uncovers Exploit in Bitmain’s Bitcoin Miner S15

Anonymous Security Researcher Uncovers Exploit in Bitmain’s Bitcoin Miner S15Developer James Hilliard, best known for his Bitcoin Improvement Proposal #91 (the BIP which activated SegWit and prevented SegWit2x) and the CGMiner program, discovered a vulnerability in Bitmain’s Antminer S15 firmware. The vulnerability was then turned into an exploit by an anonymous security researcher. Hilliard has publicly demonstrated the exploit in action: @BITMAINtech tried and failed to lock down the S15 firmware, I identified the vulnerability and @00whiterabbit wrote/tested the attack code. Once @BITMAINtech complies with the GPL licenses for the firmware I will disclose the vulnerability to them so that they can fix it. pic.twitter.com/zwsAaPQjRL — James Hilliard (@james_hilliard)
