CLI & GUI v0.17.1.9 ‘Oxygen Orion’ released (includes patch for memory exhaustion attack)!
This is the CLI & GUI v0.17.1.9 ‘Oxygen Orion’ point release. This release predominantly features bug fixes and performance improvements. Users, however, are recommended to upgrade, as it includes further mitigations for the issue, caused by the recently observed misbehaving (malicious) nodes, where the daemon (monerod) reports that the sync has 1-2 blocks left (whilst actually being fully synced). Additionally, a patch for the
monerod OOM (out of memory) issue is included.
