MAJOR ALERT for anyone using the Parity wallet to store your Ethereum.  Hackers are stealing ethereum as we speak!  

Important information below to help you avoid being ...

What Happened?

A critical vulnerability in Parity's multi-signature wallet was announced today. Parity released this advisory:

What Was Stolen?

Suspected transactions on the ethereum blockchain already showing signs of hacker activity.  This address was showing 153,000 ether collected or about $32 million @ $208/ether.

Are You At Risk?

If you use the multi-signature feature in the Parity wallet, then you are at risk.  To be safe, update your Parity wallet! Most installations of Parity have the auto-update feature enabled (unless your wallet starts with the --no-download flag). 

Start your Parity wallet ASAP and make sure it auto-updates! You can also build or download a new version (but that can take a while to sync).

Have Other Accounts Been Hacked?
