blockchain fork – Was the “sideloaded” knowledge verified by bitcoind throughout the worth overflow bug?


As a response to the overflow bug 2010, Satoshi wrote this put up asking individuals to obtain the blockchain (blk****.dat and blkindex.dat) from a particular person.

Patch is uploaded to SVN rev 132!

For now, beneficial steps:

  1. Shut down.
  2. Obtain knightmb’s blk
    information. (exchange your blk0001.dat and blkindex.dat information)
  3. Improve.
  4. It ought to begin out with lower than 74000 blocks. Let it redownload
    the remaining.

For those who do not wish to use knightmb’s information, you might simply delete your
blk*.dat information, however it’ll be lots of load on the community if
everyone seems to be downloading the entire block index without delay.

I will construct releases shortly.

I am making an attempt to know from the code whether or not knightmb’s blockchain knowledge can be verified on startup or not, however could not simply decide that.

Was the blockchain knowledge that individuals downloaded verified by the code in subversion revision r132 (imported to git commit d4c6b90ca3f9b47adb1b2724a0c3514f80635c84)?
