What's the potential impact from Spectre and Meltdown vulnerabilities to Masternodes running on VPS or Cloud platforms?

https://aws.amazon.com/security/security-bulletins/AWS-2018-013/


tldr; if you had coins in a Masternode hosted on shared VPS they're probably already gone (should have used a Dedicated Instance)

I still have coins in a masternode that's hosted on shared vps. i'll let u know when are gone. stay tuned!

For your info ICEBREAKER, DASH doesn't use hot wallet masternodes that are always online! stop spreading FUD around! Even if a "remote masternode" gets hacked (its a cold wallet) no actual funds are within the wallet, there elsewhere remote probably on the otherside of the world or even on a hardware device like trezor. Stop chatting crap! First learn how Dash's tech works before you start commenting:

To those that are worried about the latest processor vulnerabilities:

1. Ignore ICEBREAKER, his just a troll spreading mischeif and does not know how tech works!
2. Even if its a dedicated / shared vps and it running either linux or windows you will eventually have to update your system to recieve the latest CVE patches.
3. On Linux you would run something like (when the patches are released)

 > If you are running Centos / Redhat

 Run these commands as the root user or sudo:

 "yum update --disableexcludes=all update - y" (without quotes) this will ensure all packages including the kernel are updated even if they are packages defined as exclusions in /etc/yum.conf

 > If you are running ubunutu:

 "apt-get update"  -  To get updates
 "apt-get upgrade"  - To install them

 4. For Windows, just go ahead and manually patch it, i am sure Microsoft will be dishing the updates out soon automatically, if you have automated patching runing, you wont see a difference to other updates that you would normally get, but if you patch manually, its best to go ahead and just search for updates ones there released from Microsoft and update.

Doing the above however will mean you have to restart your servers at some point as these are considered kernel patches and only take effect when the devices have been rebooted. Don't worry you wont lose your place on the masternodes so long as your server advertises its a masternode within an hour and you wont need to do a remote restart or anything from the masternode, just start up "dashd" again and you'll be in the payment queue within no time.

Providers such as AWS, Microsoft, Google, Rackspace and other hosting providers etc will all send out communication to those that are effected and give you guidance on how to mitigate and patch anyway so nothing to be worried about.

As mentioned earlier, ignore ICEBREAKER, his a troll! It clearly says it on the left hand side of all my posts just under my profile name Smiley

Poor Icey, after all these years he is still trying to break the ice with us with all his cute (although somewhat lenghty  Undecided) copy and paste posts.

Just hang in there Icey, one day you will succeed and you will finally be part of our growing Dash community and actually feel the Dash feeling
that we all feel in here.....

Learn from the past, set detailed and vivid goals for the future and live in the only moment of time over which you have any control : now

Support and resistance forming a symmetrical triangle may be a positive sign of a breakout. Seems to agree with a lot of the TA analysis done over the past few days.

You know that you are holding something special if it's the only thing green in a sea of red. Dash has been my best investment to date. Just kicking myself for not buying more when it jumped to $150.

Icebreaker do you have nothing better to do than troll this page everyday ? Your FUD just add's to the pages of our thread. You actually make it look like there is much more discussion and a much more active thread.

Thank You  !!

I don't think you thoroughly comprehend the issue. The vulnerability exists with the hardware, and cannot be fully remediated without hardware replacement. If you believe service providers such as AWS, Azure, etc. can complete the necessary hardware replacement within the next 6 to 12 months, that's naive at best. The replacement is a significant undertaking with extraneous costs, and past the cost factor, hardware vendors cannot even supply at the necessary levels to meet that type of demand. Software vendors will attempt to remediate within their realm/capabilities but each fix will be shortlived as new vulnerabilities are identified within the code identified. Believe me, in the short term, a significant amount effort will be invested in identifying new attack vectors to exploit this persistent vulnerability, by governments and other entities.
This means your coins as the masternode owner may be safe on the VPS or Cloud instance they are hosted on, but the transactions passing through will not be until the underlying hardware is replaced.

For Windows, just go ahead and manually patch it, i am sure Microsoft will be dishing the updates out soon automatically, if you have automated patching runing, you wont see a difference to other updates that you would normally get, but if you patch manually, its best to go ahead and just search for updates ones there released from Microsoft and update.

Doing the above however will mean you have to restart your servers at some point as these are considered kernel patches and only take effect when the devices have been rebooted. Don't worry you wont lose your place on the masternodes so long as your server advertises its a masternode within an hour and you wont need to do a remote restart or anything from the masternode, just start up "dashd" again and you'll be in the payment queue within no time.

Providers such as AWS, Microsoft, Google, Rackspace and other hosting providers etc will all send out communication to those that are effected and give you guidance on how to mitigate and patch anyway so nothing to be worried about.

As mentioned earlier, ignore ICEBREAKER, his a troll! It clearly says it on the left hand side of all my posts just under my profile name Smiley

I don't think you thoroughly comprehend the issue. The vulnerability exists with the hardware, and cannot be fully remediated without hardware replacement. If you believe service providers such as AWS, Azure, etc. can complete the necessary hardware replacement within the next 6 to 12 months, that's naive at best. The replacement is a significant undertaking with extraneous costs, and past the cost factor, hardware vendors cannot even supply at the necessary levels to meet that type of demand. Software vendors will attempt to remediate within their realm/capabilities but each fix will be shortlived as new vulnerabilities are identified within the code identified. Believe me, in the short term, a significant amount effort will be invested in identifying new attack vectors to exploit this persistent vulnerability, by governments and other entities.
This means your coins as the masternode owner may be safe on the VPS or Cloud instance they are hosted on, but the transactions passing through will not be until the underlying hardware is replaced.

On the phone right now writing this, but I fully comprehend the issue and am aware it's hardware related, yes in the short term they can " mitigate " this with software patches which will thus slow down performance, however masternodes are being compensated so they should be able to spec up a beefier server if need be. In the long term yes hardware will need to be replaced, but with digital solutions whether it be on a silicon chip or even software based there will always be flaws, bugs etc discovered, that's just a apart of life, after all its humans who are behind the tech and we all make mistakes Smiley unless ur ICEBREAKER of course.. Hehe his perfect! Sykes.

What Is True Crypto? Two Criteria That Disqualify Most of the Top Ten


The cryptocurrency field’s combined market capitalization is fast approaching the $1 trillion mark as the emergent field surges forward. However, how accurate is the term “cryptocurrency” when referring to many of these new stars?

Let’s remember that the reason we’re all here, the reason there’s a whole separate category for cryptocurrency instead of being lumped into existing fields like simple tech and finance is because it’s inherently different. Bitcoin paved the way, not simply by pioneering blockchain technology, but by including a certain collection of attributes that made it, at least at the start, perfect money. Its present value, along with the value of all current blockchain-derived assets, comes from that winning combination, and while in my opinion Dash presently encompasses all these the best, several other top coins can qualify as well.

How many of the top ten coins right now still hold up? Use this handy list of attributes to see what is and isn’t “true crypto.”

What's the potential impact from Spectre and Meltdown vulnerabilities to Masternodes running on VPS or Cloud platforms?

https://aws.amazon.com/security/security-bulletins/AWS-2018-013/


tldr; if you had coins in a Masternode hosted on shared VPS they're probably already gone (should have used a Dedicated Instance)

Its not the Node owners fault.  How could they have forseen this making Shared VPS vulnerable, did you forsee this?

Usual salty FUD


FU Icebreaker, you and other trolls were one of the reasons why I sold some of the DASH prematurely.

Sorry to hear that. I wonder how many more were driven away from wealth by Dash trollers like Icey, very sad indeed...

Cheers. I still kept a few BTCs but iCE and 2-3 others (possibly the same person) pushing the premine story on all the time made me to decommission the MNs and sell the coins :-/

I'm glad I'm ignoring that asshole Icebitcher...

Just to repeat incase everyone didn't hear.   Don't get sucked into FUD.   Masternodes do not have any access to the coins they use to operate.
