Hmmm it's possible to instead of upgrading to 0.13.1 just directly to 0.13.2 which would be better.
It's just a little extra effort.

Thank you.

well, the best time was a year ago Grin
just like the best time to invest in bitcoin was like 6 years ago :p

you will have to decide for yourself, do some research,
take a look at roadmap, whats already done, whats being worked on
and what will be worked on in the near future, planned features are very real.
developer team is pretty active and open about the plans for viacoin

  tips will be spent on ale and ladies of questionable character Grin

Well wish me luck. This will be a long Friday night... Or weekend.
Keep an eye on the github repo.

If anyone see a mistake or possible improvement, send a private message or pull request.

I'm really looking forward for the day someone will help me with a pull request  Smiley

* I already started with 0.13.2, see the commits

It's just a little extra effort.


Easy !
Almost at 0.13.2
Solving conflicts can be some effort but so many updates !
... Missing that "verified" symbol because I was working in another branch to experiment.. didn't take my GPG key with the rebase.
I will try from now on to have my GPG key with the next rebases to have that verified logo. (Not that it matters much, call it professional or just autism)

Glad this upgrade from 0.13.1 to 0.13.2 is relatively easy with some git/github skills.

I look forward to the release!
It's going well, soon Viacoin will be on 0.13.2.
That should make auxpow a bit more easier.

I might have to hire a dev specialized in auxpow

Most of you know I am working on 0.13.2 but maybe some sharp people have seen I pushed like 35 commits in the past 3. days to the official Viacoin master branch. (4 commits 2 days ago, 28 commits yesterday and 1 commit today)
Before releasing 0.13.2 There are some bugs that needs to be fixed in the current version. I will contact Poloniex, Bittrex & other mining pools later.
Right now I am compiling the windows and Linux binaries for the new version that fixes some bugs and also some package updates that should make a more stable version.

I will let the windows version be tested by some people.
I also hope to gain a bit more trust by the people who are just watching from the side line  Smiley
The new version will be Viacoin Core 0.10.10
Viacoin Core 0.13.2 will be released after Merge mining is completed.

Been really busy with Viacoin !
But just pushed a few updates to the master branch for a new Viacoin version 0.10.11

This is not 0.13.2 (in development) but 0.10.11 contains a lot of security fixes. I also updated the Viacoin seeder with a security fix.

I will write about all of it later. It just has been a busy week.
Getting the old Viacoin to compile the window binaries was a pain since the source code was so old. So yeah I also updates Viacoin with newer versions of dependencies. (new Qt, Boost, Cache etc)

Viacoin is good, long term it will be trading on poloniex if you keep the decent volume, therefore we will have profits in long term

Fixes have been made to the Viacoin-Seeder


What is the Viacoin-seeder ?
============================

Viacoin-seeder is a crawler for the Viacoin network, which exposes a list
of reliable nodes via a built-in DNS server.

Features:
* regularly revisits known nodes to check their availability
* bans nodes after enough failures, or bad behaviour
* keeps statistics over (exponential) windows of 2 hours, 8 hours,
  1 day and 1 week, to base decisions on.
* very low memory (a few tens of megabytes) and cpu requirements.
* crawlers run in parallel (by default 24 threads simultaneously).

Fixes & Optimization
============================

1. The DNS parser of the Viacoin seeder was vulnerable to a dos attack.
A crafted DNS req could trigger infinite recursive function calls.
This exploit could lead to a stack overflow.

The vulnerability is fixed.
However I noticed a lot of Altcoins if not the majority that have seeders are vulnerabile.
Most altcoins use a seeder. Bad altcoins don't have seeders & you usually have to add nodes.

2. The protocol timeouts have adjusted to improve the seeder.
A commit has been made to avoid connecting to non valid ipv4 ranges.

3. a bug fix to fix negative responses.
Previously if the resolver was asked for a record it didn't have, it would return a response with a NS-record in the authority section.

4. Increase the TTL

5. Wait for more than 1 single address to respond

6. DNS will listen on ipv6 instead of ipv4


Seeder dos exploit that could have been used.



* exploit example by jonasnick
