“If CREATE2 would exist, then the vulnerability would have never happened. Not the correct solution would be to fix the problems that arose when we did not have this tool?”, — said Steiner.
So, in April 2018 in Parity, said not seeking hard forks after the community has strongly rejected the proposal EIP-999, however, immediately after the incident at the end of 2017 in a press release the following was stated:

Now Steiner is convinced that the Parity argument are quite serious.
“This does not mean that we and other projects will immediately refund your money. This will require another hard forks”.
