Overview

github.com/tharsis/ethermint is a scalable and interoperable Ethereum library, built on Proof-of-Stake with fast-finality using the Cosmos SDK.

Affected versions of this package are vulnerable to Always-Incorrect Control Flow Implementation as it is possible to take transaction fees from Cosmos SDK's FeeCollector for the current block by sending a custom crafted MsgEthereumTx.

User funds and balances are safe.
