BU now apparently has a bugfix release out-- though it is closed source, binary only, and they haven't updated their source code for six days.
Considering reports on Reddit that their website was hacked, my initial thought was that their github was hacked and the binaries were malicious. But Ver's staff, Magma Hindenburg, confirms they are real, and that BU has actually gone a closed source route now.
I ... just ... don't event ... wtf.
Even more amusing is the sheer trust offered them already in the thread by the idiots following them.
They are ripe for sheer ownage at some point in the future, absolutely not the team to entrust a $20B market cap service and economy to.
"Let them feel their way around it, it'll all come good in the end, what's a few short-cuts or missteps?, I mean what could possibly go wrong?, everyone has to learn somewhere!"
I wish that was hyperbole.
PSA: I've been able to recover the changes in this binary, and they're massive.
Among other things, they've removed all the runtime state corruption protection... so cases where nodes would cleanly and safely shut down in the event of things going wrong, turn into potential consensus splits or even remote code execution.
