imToken announcement | MGC wallet users please pay attention to security risks

Today, the imToken security team received a user email report and the ETH in the wallet was maliciously stolen.

We first analyzed the stolen wallet address and found the stolen commonality – all stolen addresses were wallet addresses created using the MGC wallet.

In order to further determine the stolen money, we searched for information about the MGC wallet and also contacted the stolen user as follows:

  1. User downloads use MGC wallet to generate mnemonics
  2. The mnemonic generated by the MGC wallet is stored in plain text on the MGC wallet server, ie MGC is a centralized wallet
  3. The user imports the wallet generated by the MGC into the imToken wallet or other decentralized wallet, but the mnemonic exists in the server of the MGC project party, and there is a high risk of theft.
  4. All MGC stolen assets are regularly transferred to two stolen currency addresses.

 

The imToken security team is here to remind the MGC wallet users, please stop using the wallet generated in the MGC, generate a new wallet address in the imToken, and transfer the assets. If the MGC victim of the stolen coin is injured, please go to the local public security organ for an alarm as soon as possible.
