[Informative] Proactive Security Measures: Temporarily Disabling XDCx Feature for Enhanced Chain Security

Important Security Update and Verification Process

As part of our ongoing commitment to security and transparency, we recently conducted a thorough audit of our network features. During this audit, we identified certain vulnerabilities within the XDCx feature. We want to clarify that this feature has not been released to our community and there are no immediate plans for its release.

In light of these findings, we have decided to temporarily disable the XDCx feature. This proactive measure is to ensure the continued security and integrity of our blockchain network. Our team is dedicated to resolving these vulnerabilities and will provide updates as we progress.

Verification Process

In response to these findings, we employed a detailed verification process to assess the impact on the current Mainnet. Utilizing a specialized script, we scrutinized all transactions for any interaction with the following addresses associated with the XDCx feature:

  • xdc0000000000000000000000000000000000000091
  • xdc0000000000000000000000000000000000000093
  • xdc0000000000000000000000000000000000000094
  • xdc0000000000000000000000000000000000000028
  • xdc000000000000000000000000000000000000001e
  • xdc0000000000000000000000000000000000000029
  • xdc000000000000000000000000000000000000002a

We are pleased to report that our investigation revealed no transactions related to the XDCx feature on the Mainnet.

Moving Forward

Our team is dedicated to ensuring the safety and reliability of our blockchain. We understand the importance of these features to our community and are working diligently to address these issues. Once we are confident in the security and functionality of the XDCx feature, we will consider its future release.

We appreciate your understanding and support as we continue to improve and secure our network. Your trust and security are our top priorities.
