August 27, 2020 Code bug causes 13% of Ethereum nodes to go offline.

An update in the OpenEthereum client caused 13% of all Ethereum nodes to go offline. Version 2.7.2 of OpenEthereum, which contained the bug, was released in June and has since caused nodes to freeze and require a manual reset up to three times per month, on average. OpenEthereum is working on a conversion mechanism to remove the need for expensive resynchronization by nodes.
