Coinbase bug allowed users to acquire an unlimited amount of ether

Coinbase bug

A bug was discovered on the American Coinbase crypto-bureau, which helped users steal any number of Ethereum tokens.

The research company Vicompany, which managed to find a vulnerability in the code, commented on the situation:

“If Ethereum transactions fail, the payments going before it are also canceled. At Coinbase, this did not happen, which is what allowed the users to add as much Ethereum to their account as they wished. ”

Because of bugs and hackers, not only Coinbase, but also the other stock exchanges suffered.
