Tron had a bug that could have made the entire network unusable

Tron recently resolved a bug that could have made the entire network unusable, according to a report by hackerone. A single agent could have consumed CPU by carrying out Distributed Denial-of-Service (DDoS) attacks. The agent could have submitted smart contracts with “several megabytes of bytecode,” and with enough of them sent—fill up the memory.

According to the report, “Using a single machine an attacker could send DDOS attack to all or 51 per cent of the SR node and render Tron network unusable or make it unavailable.”
