A Bitcoin vulnerability discovered in September (CVE-2018-17144) also affected Bitcoin Gold. It was patched in Bitcoin Core version 0.16.3 and the fixes were merged into Bitcoin Gold v0.15.2, also available as v0.15.2 source code on our Master branch in GitHub. Critical providers and pool operators immediately updated their code in September; all others are advised to update to v0.15.2 as soon as possible.
Is your node stuck? If it appears stuck at July 4th, 2018, it’s because you’re running an older v0.15.0 version (like v0.15.0.1 or v0.15.0.2) instead of the current v0.15.2. Simply upgrade to the latest version to fix this. Those older versions are from before our successful network upgrade this past July. Go to Help – Debug window – Information to check.
