Ethereum Network Overcomes Critical Bug

Some Parity Ethereum nodes fell out of synchronization, some users reported Wednesday. Accordingly, the platform has issued an emergency fix warning to its users.

Several reports showed that nodes using Parity stopped synchronizing with the Ethereum mainnet, the blockchain firm Bitfly stated on its twitter account.

A user responded to the tweet, confirming that his nodes stopped synchronization, but restarting Parity system seems to be a temporary fix.

The organization has urged all of its users to update to the newest version as soon as possible, whether or not they are facing issues with their nodes.

The attack came shortly before the Ethereum network was set to undergo a scheduled hard fork, named “Muir Glacier.”
