Yesterday, on the 5th of June, the Komodo team were made aware of an issue with the Agama wallet that potentially put some user's funds at risk.
After discovering the vulnerability, their Cyber Security Team used the same exploit to gain control of a lot of affected seeds and secure the funds at risk. They were able to sweep around 8 million KMD and 96 BTC from the vulnerable wallets, which otherwise would have been easy pickings for the attacker. The safe wallets RSgD2cmm3niFRu2kwwtrEHoHMywJdkbkeF (KMD) and 1GsdquSqABxP2i7ghUjAXdtdujHjVYLgqk (BTC) are under the control of the Komodo Team, and assets can be reclaimed by their owners.
If you have used Agama, it is strongly recommended moving all funds to a new address as soon as possible.
