Three large wallets in the Ethereum network have become the target of a hacker attack. A certain version of the MultiSig Wallets starting from Parity 1.5 or higher is affected is called in the social networks.
On Twitter the news quickly made the round. It is known that the Wallets of Edgeless Casino, Swarm City and Aeternity have met. About 153,000 ethers are missing – about 32 million US dollars.
The voltage increases. The first panic sales are likely to eradicate the growth of the last few days. From some corners even calls for a hard fork – though not seldom mockingly.
All other wallets are not affected, a solution is expected until tomorrow. Only last year, the DAO-Hack led to a hard fork, from the Ethereum Classic ETC comes out.
