How to fix?
A fix was pushed into the
master branch but not yet published.
Affected versions of this package are vulnerable to Improper Input Validation. In
pallet-ethereum, a part of the transaction validation logic was called in the transaction pool validation, but not in block execution. Malicious actors can abuse this to put invalid transactions into a block.
The attack is limited such that the signature is always validated, and the majority of the validation is done again in the subsequent
pallet-evm execution logic. However, a chain ID replay attack is possible. Moreover, spamming attacks are of main concern, while they are limited by substrate block size limits and other factors.
