Popular crypto service MyEtherWallet hit by attack after Hola VPN gets hacked545.55

MyEtherWallet, one of the internet’s most popular services for managing cryptocurrencies, suffered a serious security breach for the second time this year after a widely-used VPN service was compromised for five hours.

MyEtherWallet (MEW) is used to access crypto wallets and send and receive tokens to/from other wallets. Today, it warned that users of its service who utilize the Hola, a free VPN which plugs into browsers and claims nearly 50 million users, may have been caught up in a malicious attack to steal crypto. Regulars users of MEW were not impacted by the breach.
