MyEtherWallet Confirms Some DNS Servers Have Been “Hijacked”

MyEtherWallet, one of the world’s largest Ethereum wallets, has confirmed that some of its DNS servers have been “hijacked” by unknown parties in a Twitter post published on April 24.

According to the Twitter Post, a “couple of DNS servers were hijacked to resolve myetherwallet.com users to be redirected to a phishing site. This is not on @myetherwallet side, we are in the process of verifying which servers to get it resolved asap.”

Rumors about the MyEtherWallet hack began circulating on social media around 2PM GMT and were swiftly confirmed by MyEtherWallet. The DNS servers were allegedly redirecting MyEtherWallet users to a phishing website based out of Saint Petersburg, Russia.

Coincidentally, rumors about an identical DNS server hack of MyEtherWallet also circulated on social media in early January, but were denied by the wallet company and ultimately proven to be false.

As of press time, no details have emerged regarding how much ETH the hackers have managed to redirect to their own personal wallets.
