My Ether Wallet DNS compromised AGAIN!

Adoption starts here

My Ether Wallet DNS compromised AGAIN!

MEW (MyEtherWallet) Just underwent such a beautiful facelift, making it easier than ever to access and use. Unfortunately, that did not stop them from being the target of a DNS poisoning scam again affecting multiple users over the past hour. DNS stands for Domain Naming System and is the reason you are able to type in BitsAndTokens.com instead of a string of numbers that make up our IP address. DNS poisoning occurs when the DNS registry is altered so that when you type in a website name, you are taken to a fake website that looks exactly the same. For users of MEW, you might accidentally expose your private keys to an attacker monitoring the fake site, so for now, we recommend NOT visiting MEW until this is handled. We were alerted to this issue by the Blue Protocol twitter account.
