Week 22, 2020

Github, AT&T, ECDSA, DeFi

This week let’s take a breather from the usual survey of hacks, leaks, vulnerabilities and enjoy the much needed break with a number of interesting white papers. You will learn about the current state of privacy coins, ECDSA attacks, model consensus mechanism threats, and think about DeFi risk. For some lighter reading, you can enjoy the play by play of SIM swappers using AT&T as their playground to target cryptocurrency owners.
