Security Advisory

This security advisory describes one high risk vulnerability.

1) Integer overflow

Risk: High

CVSSv3.1: 9.4 [CVSS:3.1/AV:N/AC:L/PR:N/UI:N/S:U/C:H/I:H/A:L/E:H/RL:U/RC:C] [PCI]

CVE-ID: CVE-2018-10468

CWE-ID: CWE-190 - Integer Overflow or Wraparound

Exploit availability: No


The vulnerability allows a remote attacker to steal digital assets.

The vulnerability exists due to integer overflow within the transferFrom() function of a smart contract implementation for Useless Ethereum Token (UET). A remote attacker can steal assets (e.g., transfer all victims' balances into their account) because certain computations involving _value are incorrect.

The vulnerability was dubbed "transferFlaw" and has been exploited in the wild in December 2017.


Cybersecurity Help is currently unaware of any official solution to address this vulnerability.
