Trinity wallet App, may have been compromised
IOTA, a blockchain project aimed at solving integration with the Internet of Things (IOT), has been either attacked or a vulnerability has been exploited in the Trinity wallet app. The foundation has recommended that users do not open Trinity, until they have found the cause of the exploit.

About $1.6 Million USD worth of #iota have been stolen from ~10 high-value accounts. Bug is likely in the (official) desktop wallet. Network completely stopped for nearly 24 hours now.#IOTAstrong just keeps on giving.
