Python / Security Audit

Contract contains Reentrancy vulnerabilities

Additional information: This combination increases risk of malicious intent. While it may be justified by some complex mechanics (e.g. rebase, reflections, buyback).

					function _transfer(
        address from,
        address to,
        uint256 amount
    ) private {
        require(from != address(0), "ERC20: transfer from the zero address");
        require(amount > 0, "Transfer amount must be greater than zero");
        
        uint256 senderBalance = _balances[from];
        require(senderBalance >= amount, "ERC20: transfer amount exceeds balance");

        // transfer amount
        // is the token balance of this contract address over the min number of
        // tokens that we need to initiate a swap + liquidity lock?
        // also, don't get caught in a circular liquidity event.
        // also, don't swap & liquify if sender is uniswap pair.
        uint256 contractTokenBalance = balanceOf(address(this));        
        bool overMinTokenBalance = contractTokenBalance >= _minTokenBalance;

        if (
            !currentlySwapping &&
            overMinTokenBalance &&
            from != uniswapV2Pair &&
            _swapTokenEnabled &&
            balanceOf(uniswapV2Pair) > 0 &&
            !(from==address(uniswapV2Router) || to==address(uniswapV2Router)) &&
            !(from == address(this) && to == address(uniswapV2Pair)) // swap 1 time
        ) {
            _tokenTransferWithFee(contractTokenBalance);
        }

        bool takeFee = true;
        if (_isExcludedFromFee[from] || _isExcludedFromFee[to]) {
            takeFee = false;
        }else if (from==owner() || to==owner()) {
            takeFee = false;
        }else if (!_isExcludedFromPair[from] && !_isExcludedFromPair[to]) {
            takeFee = false;
        }

        if(!takeFee){
            _tokenTransfer(from, to, amount);
        }else{
            _tokenTransferWithFeeCoin(from, to, amount);
        }
    }
				
			

Recommendation

Apply the check-effects-interactions pattern.

Exploit scenario

				
					    function withdrawBalance(){
        // send userBalance[msg.sender] Ether to msg.sender
        // if mgs.sender is a contract, it will call its fallback function
        if( ! (msg.sender.call.value(userBalance[msg.sender])() ) ){
            throw;
        }
        userBalance[msg.sender] = 0;
    }
				
			
Bob uses the re-entrancy bug to call withdrawBalance two times, and withdraw more than its initial deposit to the contract.

Python / Security Audit

Too many digits

Literals with many digits are difficult to read and review.

				
					uint256 private _totalSupply = 10 * 100000000 * 10**9;
				
			

Recommendation

Exploit scenario

				
					contract MyContract{
    uint 1_ether = 10000000000000000000; 
}
				
			

While 1_ether looks like 1 ether, it is 10 ether. As a result, it’s likely to be used incorrectly.

Python / Security Audit

Conformance to Solidity naming conventions

Allow _ at the beginning of the mixed_case match for private variables and unused parameters.

				
					uint256 public _MarketFee = 3;
				
			

Recommendation

Follow the Solidity naming convention.

Rule exceptions

  • Allow constant variable name/symbol/decimals to be lowercase (ERC20).
  • Allow _ at the beginning of the mixed_case match for private variables and unused parameters.

Python / Security Audit

Redundant Statements

Detect the usage of redundant statements that have no effect.

				
					function _msgData() internal view virtual returns (bytes memory) {
        this; // silence state mutability warning without generating bytecode - see https://github.com/ethereum/solidity/issues/2691
        return msg.data;
    }
				
			

Recommendation

Remove redundant statements if they congest code but offer no value.

Exploit scenario

				
					contract RedundantStatementsContract {

    constructor() public {
        uint; // Elementary Type Name
        bool; // Elementary Type Name
        RedundantStatementsContract; // Identifier
    }

    function test() public returns (uint) {
        uint; // Elementary Type Name
        assert; // Identifier
        test; // Identifier
        return 777;
    }
}
				
			

Each commented line references types/identifiers, but performs no action with them, so no code will be generated for such statements and they can be removed.

Python / Security Audit

Contract Privileges

Maximum Fee Limit Check

Coinsult tests if the owner of the smart contract can set the transfer, buy or sell fee to 25% or more. It is bad practice to set the fees to 25% or more, because owners can prevent healthy trading or even stop trading when the fees are set too high. 

Type of fee

Description

Transfer fee

Buy fee

Sell fee

Type of fee

Description

Max transfer fee

Python / Security Audit

Contract Pausability Check

Coinsult tests if the owner of the smart contract has the ability to pause the contract. If this is the case, users can no longer interact with the smart contract; users can no longer trade the token.

Privilege Check

Description

Can owner pause the contract?

Python / Security Audit

Max Transaction Amount Check

Coinsult tests if the owner of the smart contract can set the maximum amount of a transaction. If the transaction exceeds this limit, the transaction will revert. Owners could prevent normal transactions to take place if they abuse this function.

Privilege Check

Description

Can owner set max tx amount?

Python / Security Audit

Exclude From Fees Check

Coinsult tests if the owner of the smart contract can exclude addresses from paying tax fees. If the owner of the smart contract can exclude from fees, they could set high tax fees and exclude themselves from fees and benefit from 0% trading fees. However, some smart contracts require this function to exclude routers, dex, cex or other contracts / wallets from fees.

Privilege Check

Description

Can owner exclude from fees?

Python / Security Audit

Ability To Mint Check

Coinsult tests if the owner of the smart contract can mint new tokens. If the contract contains a mint function, we refer to the token’s total supply as non-fixed, allowing the token owner to “mint” more tokens whenever they want.

A mint function in the smart contract allows minting tokens at a later stage. A method to disable minting can also be added to stop the minting process irreversibly.

Minting tokens is done by sending a transaction that creates new tokens inside of the token smart contract. With the help of the smart contract function, an unlimited number of tokens can be created without spending additional energy or money.

Privilege Check

Description

Can owner mint?

Python / Security Audit

Ability To Blacklist Check

Coinsult tests if the owner of the smart contract can blacklist accounts from interacting with the smart contract. Blacklisting methods allow the contract owner to enter wallet addresses which are not allowed to interact with the smart contract. 

This method can be abused by token owners to prevent certain / all holders from trading the token. However, blacklists might be good for tokens that want to rule out certain addresses from interacting with a smart contract.

Privilege Check

Description

Can owner blacklist?

Python / Security Audit

Other Owner Privileges Check

Coinsult lists all important contract methods which the owner can interact with.

✅ No other important owner privileges to mention.

Contract Snapshot

This is how the constructor of the contract looked at the time of auditing the smart contract.

				
					contract PYTHON is Context, IERC20, Ownable {
    using SafeMath for uint256;
    using Address for address;

    mapping (address => uint256) private _balances;
    mapping (address => mapping (address => uint256)) private _allowances;
    mapping (address => bool) private _isExcludedFromFee;
    mapping (address => bool) private _isExcludedFromPair;

    uint256 private _totalSupply = 10 * 100000000 * 10**9;

    string private _name = "PYTHON";
    string private _symbol = "PYH";
    uint8 private _decimals = 9;
    
    uint256 public _burnFee = 2;
    uint256 public _MarketFee = 3;

Website Review

Coinsult checks the website completely manually and looks for visual, technical and textual errors. We also look at the security, speed and accessibility of the website. In short, a complete check to see if the website meets the current standard of the web development industry. 

Type of check

Description

Mobile friendly?

Contains jQuery errors?

Is SSL secured?

Contains spelling errors?
