New Tools to Securely Manage Smart Contract Upgrades

We have partnered with Truffle, Nomic Labs (buidler) and Gnosis Safe to release two plugins and a new app to securely deploy and manage upgradeable smart contracts.

OpenZeppelin Upgrades Plugins for Buidler and Truffle

We are releasing two new packages to deploy and manage upgradeable contracts from Buidler and Truffle! With them, you can easily and securely leverage the full flexibility of contract upgrades directly from your Buidler scripts or Truffle migrations.

OpenZeppelin Upgrades App for Gnosis Safe

We are rolling out a Gnosis Safe App for managing proxy-based smart contract upgrades! This allows you to transfer ownership of a proxy or proxy-admin to a Gnosis Safe, and use the app to directly propose an upgrade.

Argent Vulnerability – Technical Report

A high-severity vulnerability in the Argent wallet would have allowed attackers to take over wallets with no guardians. User action would have been needed to prevent the takeover attack in less than 36 hours, which then would have opened an alternative Denial of Service (DoS) attack vector with potential to indefinitely freeze their funds.
