Pre-release

For this release Mist undergone an Audit by Cure53, which was a very needed endeavour and we are thankful for the great expertise of the Cure53 team.

Security

This audit led to a lot of useful findings that strengthen the security of the Mist browser when interacting with external DApps.

Though we also found certain vulnerabilities in electron, which is what Mist (and others like: Brave, Slack and Gitter) uses that we can't fix fully at the current point in time, without changes on the electron side, which we communicated to them. Luckily their team is very responsive and right on track to fix those as i write.

_For now don't visit untrusted DApps with your Mist browser to reduce risk!!_

We will hopefully in the next release be able to secure the electron vulnerabilities and provide a safe browser experience.

Some of the security issues allowed:

  • Execution of simple code in the Mist interface context
  • Popping up spoofed alert windows
  • Changing the interface by dragging files into it
  • Directing to file paths (which is disabled for now, on some occasions)
  • File path attacks using HTTP redirects
  • UI breaks

We also fixed all issues on the Mist side that allowed to break the interface. We added a new 400 error page for disallowed URLs. We also improved the security of scripts running inside the DApps context and improved overall webview security. We might publish the full list of vulnerabilities at a later point in time.

Big thanks goes to @cure53 and their great team for disassembling Mist and especially its integration of third party content. We will very likely have follow up audits of more aspects of the Mist browser.

Bug fixes

This release has major stability improvements on the node connection between tabs and the stability of the sockets, which were freezing Mist at times.

The wallet was also updated and should now have the problem with the confirmation windows solved.

Additionally we fixed the following issues:

  • prompts users when there are geth updates and allows them to opt-in to update it
  • fixed flickering of icons
  • fixed directing of URLs into the browser tab
  • fixed removal of wallet tab title

Pre-release

Ethereum Wallet and Mist Beta 0.8.7

@evertonfraga evertonfraga released this Oct 26, 2016 · 94 commits to master since this release

This is a security fix.

Mist users are highly recommended to update in order to keep account integrity when browsing through untrusted Dapps. Ethereum Wallet is not affected. See below.

Some Mist API methods were exposed, making it possible that malicious webpages get access to a privileged interface that could delete files on the local filesystem or launch registered protocol handlers and obtain sensitive information, such as the user directory or the user's coinbase.

Previously vulnerable exposed Mist APIs:

  • mist.shell
  • mist.dirname
  • mist.syncMinimongo
  • web3.eth.coinbase is now null, if the account is not allowed for the dapp

Upgrade to this version of the Mist Browser. Do not use any previous Mist version to navigate to any untrusted webpage, or local webpages from unknown origins. Ethereum Wallet is not affected as it doesn't allow navigation to external pages.

This is a good reminder that currently Mist is considered only for Ethereum App Development and should not be used for end users to navigate on the open web until it is reached at least version 1.0. An external audit of Mist is scheduled.

We'd like to thank the vulnerability discoverer Tintinweb for his responsible disclosure and remind everyone that we have a bounty program at bounty@ethereum.org

Ethereum Wallet and Mist Beta 0.8.5 + Geth 1.4.17

@evertonfraga evertonfraga released this Oct 11, 2016 · 139 commits to develop since this release

Hi, here's Ethereum Wallet + Mist Beta update. It bundles the Geth version 1.4.17 "PoolAid". Our colleagues at the Go-ethereum worked hard to give us this version.

This update is highly recommended and fixes most of "stuck syncing…", or "high memory usage".

From Geth repository:

Geth 1.4.17 is a hotfix release to address two DoS attack vectors abused on the mainnet:
This release limits the number of transactions per-user and globally so as to limit maximum memory consumption and egress network traffic.

Changes

Also here are some changes to keep your Mist shining.

  • Update geth to 1.4.17 #1274
  • Update Solidity Compiler (Solc) to release 0.4.2 #1239
  • Disable resizability for all popup windows #1206
  • Update github's issue-template's node.log upload instructions #1232
  • Added Russian translation #1247 - thanks @A888R!
  • New way to reach logs from application #1227
  • Menus more OS-friendly #1192

Ethereum Wallet and Mist Beta 0.8.4 + Geth 1.4.14

@evertonfraga evertonfraga released this Sep 28, 2016 · 167 commits to develop since this release

This is a bugfix-release to mitigate the sync-related issues on the main-net caused by the recent transaction spam attack. Furthermore this release will fix the faulty installer introduced with pre-release 0.8.3.

Finally the new installer split the config-folder into separate ones for Ethereum Wallet and Mist. As a result Ethereum Wallet won't display any previous watched custom contracts and token as well as contract wallets and wallet names. Although they are still available in Mist and Ethereum Wallet < 0.8.3 you will need to re-added them manually to Ethereum Wallet >= 0.8.3.

Changes

  • updated bundled geth to 1.4.14 "What else should we rewrite?" pre-release.

Fixes

  • adds desktop-shortcut, startmenu-entry and uninstaller (windows) (#1211)
  • allow simultaneous installation of Mist and Ethereum Wallet (windows, linux) (#1213)
  • fix and update npm dependency graph (#1194)

Ethereum Wallet and Mist Beta 0.8.3 + Geth 1.4.12

@evertonfraga evertonfraga released this Sep 27, 2016 · 169 commits to develop since this release

Mist 0.8.3

This is a special release live from Devcon. It contains a few updates that will be presented live onstage, and the new security release for Geth.

New Features

New confirmation pane (#1141)

All ethereum transactions only contain very few pieces of information, mostly who it comes from, who it goes to, the amount of ether and the byte code data. This last one is where all the contract magic does, yet all you could see until now was a bunch of hexadecimal numbers. In this version, we try to decode the byte code into human friendly parameters, so you can understand more what the contract is trying to do. Mist comes with almost 3000 contract signatures (thanks to @pipermerriam for creating a service that collects them ) and if you still don't have it you can still query the internet to try to decode it. With some upcoming Swarm and Solidity features we intend to make this request via Swarm, not HTTP, but right now if you click decode, you are sending a request to the site http://4byte.directory/ which doesn't keep any logs.

Don't forget that this is just what the transaction list it does. Ultimately what the contract does is up to the code, so clicking the recipient address will take you to a page containing the contract source code that you can verify yourself.

Security fix

This Mist & Wallet 0.8.3 release contains the updated 1.4.12 Geth version. If you were experiencing issues with Mist crashing after block 2283416, then that's the likely culprit.

PGP-verified releases (#546)

This is long-awaited, and probably more useful than checksums itself. Look for the Verified badge in releases and commits.

Other fixes

  • New windows installers and Mac DMGs
  • Changed Fullscreen shortcut (#1151)
  • Updated to the latest version of Solidity (#1138)
  • Fixed a security issue that could reveal your public key without authorisation (#1114)
  • Integrating electron-builder for better distributables building (#1159)

Known issues

  • Mist Menu still lists geth as 1.4.10 but it has been updated
  • Windows installers are not adding the icons on the menu. To find your mist install, open windows explorer and go to %localappdata%\Mist\app-0.8.3\
  • Installation of Ethereum Wallet will wipe out Mist and vice versa on Windows and Linux (#1178; only 0.8.3 versions affected)

Coinbase integration

Another long time coming release, but this one is packed with goodies. First of all, we are very happy with to announce a Coinbase integration: if you are in the United States, now you can buy up to $5 with a credit or debit card and transfer it to any ethereum account instantly. You'll be prompted to create a Coinbase account if you don't have one already, and then log in.

As Coinbase adds more markets, they will be added to the wallet, and we are looking into how we can use their bank transfers integration to allow unlimited daily amounts. We are not getting any fees or compensation for this (unlike our ShapeShift affiliate program which sends about 0.25-0.4% to the Ethereum Tip Jar) but we are very excited to see another adoption barrier being taken down. We thank the Coinbase team for their help making this a reality.


auth

New Mist accounts panel

We are changing the way accounts are made visible to a Dapp in Mist. By default, an app isn't shown any more information on the user than what it would get from browsing a normal web (which, admittedly, already leaks tons of information) so we wanted to simplify the process of revealing your accounts to the app. The new process is similar to the authentication in the Chrome browser or connecting via Facebook oauth.

To reveal your account to an app, click on the anonymous person icon, and then choose one or more accounts that will be made visible. An app can and should change it's UI to reflect the changes (but never reveal any private information as, until the user properly signs a message, they haven't proven ownership of these accounts yet).

Replay prevention

We added an advanced feature to prevent your transactions on being replayed on other chains, like ethereum classic. This allows you either to prevent that transfer on happening on classic at all, or use that transaction to send the same amount to a different contract, like a newly created account or an exchange. If you want to fully separate all your transactions we recommend you create two new accounts, one for Ethereum proper and the other for Classic, and then move all your funds into them (remember that you need ether to move tokens), making sure that each account has 0 ether on the other chain - doing this once would prevent any future transaction from being replayed. To use this, use the "more options" button on the send page.

This feature also supports splitting tokens, but it's very experimental and will not work on all tokens. Since all of this is done using a contract then first you need to allow that contract to move tokens in your behalf by clicking "Approve token transfer".

As always, these features are experimental and should be tested with small amounts first. Although most transactions are replayed on both chains, some may not for multiple reasons. Also, some exchanges have issues receiving ether from a contract address - if that's your case, contact the exchange.

We've also removed all Fork code from the Mist app, so if you want to use it Ether Classic you'll have to either download Classic Mist directly from their repository or use your own node as the backend for your wallet (both Ethereum Wallet and Mist can connect to any node) as you would do for a private network.


Other changes

  • Fixes blank screen at startup #1110 - This nasty bug was one of the culprits of the long delay, as it was an erratic behaviour that would only affect installs on a clean system
  • Adds a links to the contract source code on the confirmation window
  • Added contrast on dark themes #1001
  • Enabled HTTP RPC sockets (#871)
  • Fixed Tabs permissions update (#1061)
  • Fixed node download logic (#1048)
  • New wallet favicon and 404 page (ethereum/meteor-dapp-wallet/263)

Pre-release

Wallet and Mist Beta with Hard Fork choice 0.8.1

@frozeman frozeman released this Jul 17, 2016 · 275 commits to master since this release

This release contains geth 1.4.10 with the Hard Fork choice!

You will be asked at start which chain you want to be on. After selecting your choice, you will run either the Hard Fork chain, or stay on the old one.

screen shot 2016-07-17 at 12 21 09

Until block 1 920 000 you can simply switch to the other chain, by selecting the main in Menu "Develop" -> "The DAO fork" -> "support/don't support DAO fork".

screen shot 2016-07-17 at 11 50 55

If you want to switch chains after block 1920000 you need to resync Mist!
You can do this by following these instructions:

  • Click on "Accounts" -> "Backup" -> "Accounts". This will open the file explorer with the "Ethereum" folder opened.
  • Click on "Accounts" -> "Backup" -> "Application Data". This will open a system folder, go there into the "Mist" folder.
  • Close Mist.
  • Delete the "chaindata" folder inside the "Ethereum" folder.
  • Change the content of the file called "daoFork" to true or false ("true" means going with the dao fork, "false" means against). Optionally you can also simply delete that file and Mist will ask you again to choose on the next start.
  • After you done that restart Mist and it will ask you to select the chain again and you can sync

Other additions in this release:

  • Fixes the bug, where estimateGas was not working anymore.
  • Fixes an issue in the transaction confirmation window in which it would show “wrong password” error, for unrelated node errors
  • Disables eth node until it releases a version with fork support

NOTE C++ eth has no hard fork ready version build yet, so you need to use geth for now, and wait until we can bundle eth in the next release!

Pre-release

Wallet and first Mist Beta 0.8.0

@alexvandesande alexvandesande released this Jul 9, 2016 · 278 commits to develop since this release

screen shot 2016-07-07 at 6 17 21 pm

This is a small release of the Ethereum Wallet, but a big step for Mist development as it's our first* public release of the Mist browser. This is the same software we've been shipping for some time now (in fact you can launch mist from the wallet using a command line flag) but we believed this would be a good time to make it available in an easier form for the general public to test and developers to start tinkering with it's possibilities.

* You can say we started at zero

Why?

The Ethereum Foundation believes in a more decentralised internet, one where users keep their private information and where applications can run without any centralised server, using smart contracts as their logic. The Ethereum Wallet has some basic contract functionality, but we believe that in order for smart contracts to reach their full potential, they should be as easy to use as website.

So the "Mist Navigator" is not meant to be a better general browser, but a starting point to access future Ethereum Applications, and this is where we will be building more functionality that goes beyond the blockchain, like decentralised file storage and p2p communication layers.

The Wallet

We are making both the traditional wallet app and the Mist Navigator. The former option includes the the wallet as a default app and you can use it in the exact same way as before. Unlike the Ethereum Wallet application which hosts all the files locally, this version is hosted at wallet.ethereum.org, a mirror of this github repository which is derived directly from the linked source code on github. These files contain only the interface files and no information is stored at any server. The only external connection is made to a price information server. All your private information is stored locally on your own computer and the connection to the blockchain is done via Mist. As soon as Swarm is deployed on the main net we will start distributing it this way so it will become again a local file.

How to use the Browser

We built an example application for you to interact with (we will cover more about how it works behind the scenes on a future blog post). Use Mist to navigate to that page - it will not work on a normal browser as it keeps all information on the blockchain and not in any one server.

Click Browse, paste the address https://ethereum.github.io/stake-voice/ on it and press enter.

Stake Voice is a generic polling app, intended to be able to give Ether Stake holders an opinion on any controversial topic. It doesn't keep any ether, and all it does is verifies that a key holder indeed agrees or disagrees with that statement. The votes and balances are then tallied by the app itself and the tally is updated if any of the currently voting accounts change their balance.

The first thing you need to do is allow the app to see one of your accounts. Instead of each site having to create separate login procedures and keeping your private information, you start all mist apps anonymously and then you reveal your credentials with a few clicks. Click on the "no accounts set" to connect to the app, and optionally click the plus button to add it to your sidebar (we are in the process of streamlining these steps).

captura de tela 2016-07-07 as 10 56 10 am

Now type a statement on the text box, anything you want to know either people agree or disagree with.

captura de tela 2016-07-07 as 10 58 13 am

If you just typed the question, chances are that nobody answered it yet. So click one of the buttons, agree or disagree and a window will pop up and ask your password.

Don't type your password blindly. This window means that you are about to execute a transaction on the Ethereum blockchain. Check if it's sending any ether and before you confirm it and use an online tool to verify the contract source.

You can verify the source of the contracts you are interacting here and here. Also notice the icons on that page and check if they are identical to the ones you are seeing on the confirmation page. The icons of the latest version of the contract should look like this:

icons

We are working on making all these steps more user friendly in the future. Meanwhile we recommend you create a new account with no tokens to interact with unknown contracts and refuse to interact with any contract whose source code is unknown.

screen shot 2016-07-08 at 8 57 37 am

Contract icon looks the same? Check. Ether sent is set at 0? Check.

After you confirmed your password, wait for the next block to be picked up and in a few seconds the app will calculate everyone's current opinion on the matter. Share the link with friends to get them to answer the issues too.

captura de tela 2016-07-07 as 11 07 59 am

The app stores no information on servers, so all information is saved on the blockchain and the statement is kept at the url, but since all information is public anyone can extend the app, by adding comments, lists of most voted statements and create their own interface for it. We will cover how the app works and how you can build similar apps like these in a future blog post.

Some random statements you can try: Game of Thrones vs Star Wars and Nutella

This is a proof of concept code and is not intended to scale. While it can accurately depict stake holders opinions, since all calculation is done on the frontend, some very popular or controversial questions could be attacked by spammers that create thousands of dust votes. If you want to check other projects doing similar things but with the specific purpose of Fork Voting, you should check ethersignal (same basic code, but with added spam protection) and carbonvote.

Known Issues

Mist Browser is in early stages and we decided to release it earlier than expected in the hopes that it can help build better discussion and governance tools for Ethereum. Some known bugs:

  • Sometimes tabs will lose their titles or the main page won't load. Pressing the regresh button (command+r or control+r) on the tab will solve the issue
  • A white rectangle sometimes appear at the bottom of apps. Resizing the app forces a redraw and the rectangle disappears
  • Tabs are occasionally forgotten by the application

Full Changelog

  • adding setting to change UI language (fixes #813) (#896)
  • update-popup-window: prevent maximize (#885)
  • fixed webview tagd and updated electrong to 1.2.5 (#905)
  • Fixes the node start IPC connection (#841)
  • Cleanup of i18n files (#910)
  • Fixing wallet tab insertion (#911)
  • Fully automated UI testing (#788)

Changes to Wallet

Saves contract code in memory when getting out of tab: This is particularly useful when you need the address of a contract as one of the parameters for another contract (creating a dao that uses a token for example) and you want to go to another tab to copy it (Add caching to contract ethereum/meteor-dapp-wallet#139)

  • Fixes an issue that would prevent you from sending tokens out of a contract without ether
  • Fixes an issue that would select an account you don’t own when sending tokens from a wallet contract
  • Doesn’t allow you to deploy contracts from wallet contracts
