According to a number of sources in social networks, cybercriminals hacked the servers of the popular MyEtherWallet, replacing DNS.

For now unconfirmed information, at the moment the wallet is compromised in a number of regions, but the exact scale of the problem is still not defined.

As the representatives of the Ethereum Blue project note, when you visit the purse site, the user is unnecessarily redirected to a resource similar in design, but created by scammers. When entering a login and password, the site steals funds from user accounts.

Soon at Reddit there was a message from the representative of MyEtherWallet, where it says that the team of the popular wallet knows nothing about the problem.

I'm Wietze from MyEtherWallet. We are currently not aware of any compromises regarding MyEtherWallet and are investigating the claims by EthereumBlue.

You can (and should!) always run MyEtherWallet offline, locally.

The developers of the MetaMask Ethereum wallet wallet have opened the way for everyone to test the beta version of a mobile application available for Android and iOS.

According to the developers, the application is synchronized with the cryptowallet in the initial browser extension. It also allows you to manage crypto-assets, send ETH users and ERC-20 and ERC-721 standard tokens using ENS names (Ethereum Name Service), and interact with decentralized applications (dApps).

In addition, the application supports InstaPay payment channels for instant and free transactions. It also implements Web3 functionality, support for IPFS and various solutions to ensure a high level of security.

The launch of the mobile application MetaMask was announced 9 months ago during the Devcon4 conference in Prague.
