terrible review for Solidity as a programming environment in HN
"Solidity/EVM is by far the worst programming environment I have ever encountered. It would be impossible to write even toy programs correctly in this language, yet it is literally called "Solidity" and used to program a financial system that manages hundreds of millions of dollars."

SECURITY ALERT - Critical bug in Parity's MultiSig-Wallet
'Together, we were able to determine that malicious actors had exploited a flaw in the Parity Multisig code, which allowed a known party to steal over 153,000 ETH from several projects including Edgeless Casino, Aeternity, and Swarm City.'

by leaving "internal" (a visibility restricting keyword) off of the wallet contract, it was possible for attackers to steal millions from a "secure" multi-sig wallet in Ethereum: https://press.swarm.city/parity-multisig-wallet-exploit-hits-swarm-city-funds-statement-by-the-swarm-city-core-team-d1f3929b4e4e
