The project team Guarda Wallet warned the holders of the cryptocurrency that the creators arising from the forks of altcoins Ethereum Nowa (ETN) and Ethereum Classic Vision (ETCV) arrogate to themselves the private keys of the users involved in the distribution of their coins.

For example, to the account of the holders of Ethereum Nowa was credited with additional coins, they had to send ETN to the address of the project to the private key, and then using another online tool that follows the design style MyEtherWallet (MEW), and ETN themselves. As it turned out, the only function of the clone of MEW to collect and send to the remote server user data, if they have activated the original browser extension MyEtherWallet, a tool they will not start and will be blocked as potentially dangerous.

The creators of the other fork, Ethereum Classic Vision, according to Guarda Wallet, under the form of API-token also used the code to transmit private keys on their own servers.

Recall that in the last two years, the Commission on securities and stock exchanges of the USA (SEC) has opened more than 90 cases against scriptcombine. In this case, the regulators managed to return to investors $36 million of the estimated $3 billion lost as a result of implementation of fraudulent schemes.
