Anonymous No More? Monero Exploit Reveals User Identities to Hackers

The researcher, Anthony Russell, says that he can actually locate Monero users through transaction broadcasts.

When users open up their Monero wallets, they connect to the peer-to-peer network, which allows users to then connect to individual wallets.

According to Russell, If the users of those wallets aren’t using TOR or I2P, you can easily determine their IPs.

One potential problem with this method is that it doesn’t necessarily differentiate between server nodes and peers. However, Russell says that this can be overcome by doing a simple whois search............

Bad news tbh.
It's not even news. Anthony Russell is not the sharpest knife in the drawer. No shit you need to connect on nodes to get your chain in sync and transmit transactions. But you can't pin identities or wallet addresses based on IPs you've collected from your own node. Use your head people. How do you think we got this https://monerohash.com/nodes-distribution.html

Anthony needs to work a lot harder if he wants his 5 minutes internet fame, reminding us of the bare basic of p2p cryptocurrencies wont do.

Yay the trolls are back!!! Looks like the bottom is here. Cheesy I grabbed another long at 0.01446773, couldn't get any lower with those fucking Bots. Funny the bots were at a stalemate at 0.01448000   for 0.10077572   Xmr and I grabbed that and they started buying but then backed off. I'm all in now.

DevMeeting 2017-10-22

Highlights[ ]

Recent code merges
Lightweight Wallet API support
Sub-addresses
Bugfix release(0.11.0.1) may be as early as October 23, 2017 (Monday). (This will *not* enable the features above.)
Discussions involving dotnetrussel's (Verge) twitter bot.
It's really not worth rebuttal as there's no vulnerability.
It's just watching for connections on a port via "netstat". Not indicative of a Monero user or transaction.
dEBRUYNE may write something official up.
Discussions of the Monero Hardware wallet will likely migrate to the Monero Community meetings.
redfish and hyc are working through some database sync and corruption issues.

This is decentralized exchange.
nvo.io

The wallet will available at the beginning of the November and exhanchange at Q1 2018.

Project is completely open source and each coins devs can make their own plugin for the wallet. I do not know does the nvo team do the plug in for monero, but anyway monero devs can do it. Monero logo is anyway at nvo demo video in youtube.

Are monero devs aware of this project?

nvo.io

The wallet will available at the beginning of the November and exhanchange at Q1 2018.

Project is completely open source and each coins devs can make their own plugin for the wallet. I do not know does the nvo team do the plug in for monero, but anyway monero devs can do it. Monero logo is anyway at nvo demo video in youtube.

Are monero devs aware of this project?

I hope our devs will vett the code for this.

Transactions
are
processed
simultaneously
through
an
order
matching
engine
from
one
wallet
to
another.
The
validator
on
the
Safenetwork
will
check
if
the
transactions
are
valid
prior
to
being
exchanged.
The
orders
are
then
matched
and
transactions
broadcasted
in
their
respective
networks.
The
validator
process
raw
transactions
and
doesn’t
hold
any
private

or
assets
nor
can
it
sign
transactions resulting in a trustless decentralized exchange using the Safenetwork to validate orders

Nice formatting in the white paper (that quote was a copy paste from it) lol

I'm wondering if the "Validator" can be tricked on one side of the transaction with a modified wallet to just not send the agreed upon amount or use some other workaround like a hard codded wallet balance that doesn't really exist to trick the validator into thinking it sent funds.

This looks like it has the potential to get hacked pretty quickly.

Anonymous No More? Monero Exploit Reveals User Identities to Hackers

The researcher, Anthony Russell, says that he can actually locate Monero users through transaction broadcasts.

When users open up their Monero wallets, they connect to the peer-to-peer network, which allows users to then connect to individual wallets.

According to Russell, If the users of those wallets aren’t using TOR or I2P, you can easily determine their IPs.

One potential problem with this method is that it doesn’t necessarily differentiate between server nodes and peers. However, Russell says that this can be overcome by doing a simple whois search............

No shit. This is why kovi is under development... Until kovi development is complete, if you really care about privacy, than you need to broadcast your transactions from behind a vpn or tor. This shouldn't be "news" to anyone who knows anything about this project.  Something that everyone always knew or should have known spun as news. Smells like someone with an agenda spreading fud. Wankalone should take notes I guess. This is how it is done.

If one can not confer upon another a right which he does not himself first possess, by what means does the state derive the right to engage in behaviors from which the public is prohibited?

Considering the fact that there have been guides around forever to alleviate this it is certainly a non issue and nothing but FUD. Just drop a link to a tutorial on how to get around this wherever you see the fucktard posting this fud. Not to mention using a light wallet or mymonero mitigates this, albeit adding vulnerabilitys in the process.

No shit. This is why kovi is under development... Until kovi development is complete, if you really care about privacy, than you need to broadcast your transactions from behind a vpn or tor.

Wankalone should take notes I guess. This is how it is done.

Kovri isn't needed to address what is being reported as an alleged 'vulnerability' (and mostly doesn't). The IP addresses of nodes on a p2p network are public and you can get them explicitly using print_cn or print_pl in the daemon or netstat (or even see geolocated addresses on a node map). These addresses by themselves tell you nothing about users or transactions.

Even if not transmitting your txs over Tor, VPN, i2p, etc. it is still very difficult for anyone other than your ISP or someone spying directly on your network connection to determine that a transaction originated at a particular node. It could possibly be done with a massive sybil attack on the network, and even then would be unreliable.
