Title: Phishing myetherwallet site
Post by: D3m1r4wanti on April 14, 2019, 06:53:35 AM
some time ago I opened the Myetherwallet site to make a transaction, but I was directed to another tab in the browser that I used with a slightly different address but with the exact same appearance.

https://myetherwallet.com-eth.network/index.php?

https://i.imgur.com/xz2MsVr.jpg

exactly the same as the original website,

https://www.myetherwallet.com/

https://i.imgur.com/vBqkM4H.jpg

I hope this can be our shared awareness,
because not only were they new sites that were phishing, but the Vintage website from MEW also experienced the same incident.

https://myetherwallet.com-eth.network/vintage/index.php?key=9090

https://i.imgur.com/7SfTIKT.jpg

and exactly the same as the original website.

https://vintage.myetherwallet.com/#send-transaction

https://i.imgur.com/81hJQcI.jpg

always bookmark some important websites and ignore pop ups when you surf the internet. because it might be one of the phishing attempts.

Thank you for sharing this. Scammers are everywhere. I just created a thread people trying to scam money with the name of binance dex testnet launch and giveaway. There's a lot of phishing sites. Don't use any site from google search, better you bookmark the sites you used to use regularly.

Can you give more details? In particular what I would like to know is how and why were you redirected? Did you visit any insecure site? These redirectons should not happen unless your computer is infected with viruses or you visit some scam websites. Were you using the latest version of the browser and what browser you were using?

Generally when you search in google, you will get the official linm byt in some case, those scams sites however manage to rank in number 1 in google rank and people generally don't notice the url and get redirected to the scam sites.

OK, I understand now. That could explain it. The OP was not typing the Myetherwallet URL directly in the address bar. He was using Google to open the site, which is a very very bad practice. The scam sites do not need to rank in number 1 organically. They can buy Google ads to get on top of the search results. The moral of the story: never go to Myetherwallet via Google and always double check the URL!

ok I tell you more about my experience,
at first I was opening the Etherscan site (https://etherscan.io/) then when I entered my wallet address and I pressed the search button, I was directed to the phishing address.
there seems to be an invisible pop up blocking the search button so that when I press the button I am directed to enter the phishing address they made.
for information, I use the latest version of Google Chrome.

You sure you have used that etherscan website? Or you just end up with another fake etherscan? Tried to search there are no other fake sites with etherscan so this incident is
really weird.If theres a hidden pop-up when you do press out search then most likely your pc do have some sort of malware.Try to have some pc scan on your AV.

I haven't heard of a phishing site for ethereum wallets for a long time, but it seems they always pop up and try to snatch all the coins we have. Indeed, it is very difficult to distinguish between the original and not because it is very similar. But if you remain cautious and also always be vigilant if there is an acceptability.

Then it's a malware in your browser or device. I think you better re set up your device and use any reputed anti virus. Otherwise, the chances of being scammed is high for you. Do it ASAP.

yes it seems like that, I also began to feel uncomfortable with the browser that I am currently using, I will try to update the anti-virus on my laptop. to prevent the spread of malware.

There are warning posted in the real site. Like what should the address look like and the appearance of the original hasn't changed since I started joining there. P.S I don't know if the site developed or changed. Those phishing sites are not new. There are a lot of them where if you put your wallet information in order to log in to your account, it's already over.

Post by: The Seller on April 15, 2019, 07:55:28 PM
I think it's really very worrying when many people make phishing sites that aim only to steal what others have. Honestly, I have found a number of sites like that, but I am always vigilant by researching and doing the correct entry method. And for beginners, I recommend that you keep cautious because phishing sites are almost identical to the original site.

It has been a problem of most beginners ever since but with the simplest solution for it, this will reduce the possibility of landing to a phishing site.

Because you are aware of what's the exact URL address and you have bookmarked it.

Both of you have missed his point. He was in right website for checking the balance, etherscan. When he pasted his address and clicked for search, he was redirected to the phishing site. Bookmarking site can't do anything here although we must ensure the url. His device is infected with some kind of malware.

People dont really have that time to read up and just posting replies which isnt really connected at all.It is indeed OP is on the right url of etherscan but clicking out that
search bar do redirects him on a phishing site.

This is why i dont really get paying attention when it comes to pop-out yet im not really expecting for etherscan to have it on the very first place.Always verify things out before
logging in any wallet.This is really have connection with malware problem because on typical etherscan search it wont really give you such phishing attempts.

Scam site why you have accessed without checking the URL. There are plenty of site available with the similar of wallet and exchange sites.

Please be careful while you access towards it.

If there is any thread to find the scam site link on this forum means that will be more useful for the forum users to stay safe.

yes, I have experienced being a victim of a phishing website, I lost some ethereum assets, therefore I remind others as much as possible not to experience the events that I experienced in the past.

instead I accidentally accessed the website, it looks like I have been exposed to malware that gave me a pop up when I clicked on another website and directed to the phishing website.
and actually I can find out this is a phishing website because I checked the url address of the website. and after I compare it is proven like what I posted first.

Sometimes danger of stealing your account information comes from applications in your browser app store. Beware of unknown opened Wi-Fi networks, because there may be also phishing trap, especially if you are using smartphone or tablet..you can just not see whole adress of MEW. Just remember, to be always reading all the reviews about the app you want to install.

Post by: cryptoangel on April 20, 2019, 03:57:42 PM
Many phishing sites copying the template of the wallets site and using the same kind of URL to scam the users of those wallets.

When you see the interface it will be exactly similar to the original site but you check the URL while you invest your time on accessing the wallet. Read the security measures you can see at the sign up and do it.

MEW wallet is completely safe to store the Ethereum and ERC20 tokens. If you are accessed any shit site then possibilities to loose the money is high and the image shown also seems you have accessed fake site.
Please see your URL and confirm while you are accessing your wallet with Json or private key at anytime.

yeah, that one a good solution,
because if you use MyCrypto (https://www.mycrypto.com/) it's just like you use the MEW
and in mycrypto, it has an app that you download so there is no way that people can phising you

but don't forget that you need to download the app from the official website

Phishing myetherwallet site always appears on my search page if I search for MEW keywords. Phishers are talented when you search for keywords related to Myetherwallet, fake sites will appear first, and they have fooled you. Please pay attention to the website address and remember the exact address of MEW is https://www.myetherwallet.com/ (https://www.myetherwallet.com/)

Please change the subject line says Phishing site similar to MEW. If any newbie see this they might think that MEW is the phishing and that is what you are referring here.
This is the best wallet in my experience on for having eth or tokens.
Be careful while accessing your wallet and check the url and seeing the address whether right or wrong.

Never got to the phishing myetherwallet site. Whoever knows the correct address will never get caught, but newcomers in this case can also get caught. In principle, you can report this site to MEW official twitter page or email them. They think they will do everything to clean this site.

same here buddy i also bookmarked the official mew site and i can say that this was safe because ive been doing this for more than two years now  just before the phishing news about mew went viral   .

btw what method do you use to open your mew wallet ? i currently use private keys and i know that it isnt the safest way to open a mew wallet  . if your like me that also use private keys , then i sugest you use some kind of browser extension like meta mask  for extra protection from hackers and phishers  .

I was about to say this one, bookmark everything so that the likelihood of you getting to a phishing site is minimised. Been practicing this and so far I was able to get away from those sites, everyone should give it a try.

Private key is dangerous as well, but I was say that I used it before again, never experience hacks but I'm still very careful though.

Well, online wallet is the worst wallet to use. It might be easy and simple to use, but very low security. I suggest you all to get at least desktop wallet to store you assets, if possible you can buy a hardware wallet for better security. Better safe than sorry.

they still do this when they can just guess the privatekeys like the kids who stole 45,000 ETH just by guessing privatekeys. phishing will leave more trail thru that hosting companies they use. these hackers seem to have more skills, than just guessing so they should just use their skills to earn not steal.

What a thing that often happens. Phishing sites are circulating everywhere and always looking for our guardian side. It's really the thing that makes MEW users think twice about using it. Keep your friends' hearts because evil always targets our blind spots.

Bookmark and always check it first before putting your private keys is very important securing your wallets online, a lots of hackers who's waiting to penetrate with your accounts so do a routine check before dealing with your online wallet, always take a closer look with the site and double check
everything as OP already shared some information.

Firstly I check the Alexa rank of the site, even though I bookmark them. Most of the phising sites don't have good Alexa rank. If you compare real site with the phising site you can see the difference in Alexa rank.

Secondly using Metamask, it shows the warning message on the screen when we visit any scam or phishing sites.

Third, read the URL twice before entering into them.

Fourth, Always use Two devices one for work and one for the wallet.

MEW is mostly attacked Ether Wallet till now.

LOL you are asking to check the alexa rank before use it? Really funny I hope you don't do like that too.

While you accessing the wallet just confirm the URL is correct or not that is enough else you bookmark the page and access the legacy wallet. Because of new UI many people confuse themselves whether it is correct or wrong wallet.

Fourth, Always use Two devices one for work and one for the wallet.

MEW is mostly attacked Ether Wallet till now.

LOL you are asking to check the alexa rank before use it? Really funny I hope you don't do like that too.

While you accessing the wallet just confirm the URL is correct or not that is enough else you bookmark the page and access the legacy wallet. Because of new UI many people confuse themselves whether it is correct or wrong wallet.
Yes Checking Alexa ranks helps me in 2018 to avoid fake MEW URL's  If you don't understand what I want to say then you should read again. Mostly phishing site doesn't have good Alexa rank if you check in case of MEW, the Alexa rank for MEW is 12,877 and if you open the phising site you can see their Alexa rank. Much different

I haven't heard of a phishing site for ethereum wallets for a long time, but it seems they always pop up and try to snatch all the coins we have. Indeed, it is very difficult to distinguish between the original and not because it is very similar. But if you remain cautious and also always be vigilant if there is an acceptability.

As far as I know there are more than two thousand such sites in Russia. I am more interested in what resources will advertise such phishing sites. Of course, in order to avoid any problems, always use only previously made bookmarks.

Search engines should redirect to official sites for queries like well known wallets, banks, etc...
Search Engines doesn't work like that. Search engines work bases of a website's ranks. inbound and outbound links. and other factors. which we call Search Engine Optimization. if a phishing website have stronger SEO than an original website then that phishing site will win in the search engine. that's how it works. search engines are made of bots and codes. they don't check which website is original and which one is phishing. Stronger Optimization you have stronger the chance of your website to come on top of search engines.

Make sure once you search to myetherwallet you can check it if the site is really legit because we know now a lot of pishing site are copying the name of the website and they change only some letters or add some so the user will not notice that website is fake or trying to hack your account. We need to be careful every we want to login our account to make sure our account is safe.

It's easy now to detect MyEtherWallet site phising or not
First, if you mobile user use MyEtherWallet apk on playstore, it's easy to use
Second, for pc user install MetaMask to protect you from phising site, it always close when you open phising site. Very helpful.

This has been the first time this year that I am hearing about the MEW phishing site, so I got the impression the scammers gave up on this particular type of phishing as it is the most obvious one and most people are already familiar with it, but I guess it is still effective enough to keep trying. Bookmarking the real MEW site is indeed an easy and crucial ordeal to avoid stepping on this phishing mine.

I think no one will refuse. After all, inexperienced investors always come to the market. Iím sure hundreds of people make this mistake every day. In a hurry or unknowingly. But this is not the end of phishing. You also need to be careful and do not use Google to search your exchange. Unfortunately there are enough fakes too.

The scammers know how to manage the whole manner without raising any questions on the victim's mind. MEW has changed its user interface and wallet access methods, scammers did the same thing too. Now scammers use Google advertising tools for promoting their phishing site and new users have gravitated to this magnet.

These scammers are buying ads to promote their phishing sites.  They are going under google's radar.

This is one of the reasons that you never just copy and paste your private key into a web browser.  Always connect with a safe option like a hardware wallet.

It can create an experience for all of us, now that there are many phishing websites, be careful to keep your data safe.
My advice is to avoid phishing web pages, by bookmarking pages, don't often use searches,
If you open https://www.myetherwallet.com/ use the metamask installed on your PC

It's always a better idea to bookmark all the websites where you are entering data which may be compromised. I use Binance and MyEtherWallet and I have bookmarked both of these.


Title: Re: Phishing myetherwallet site
Post by: RyhaniFoyej on May 14, 2019, 08:09:58 AM
some time ago I opened the Myetherwallet site to make a transaction, but I was directed to another tab in the browser that I used with a slightly different address but with the exact same appearance.

https://myetherwallet.com-eth.network/index.php?

https://i.imgur.com/xz2MsVr.jpg

exactly the same as the original website,

https://www.myetherwallet.com/

https://i.imgur.com/vBqkM4H.jpg

I hope this can be our shared awareness,
because not only were they new sites that were phishing, but the Vintage website from MEW also experienced the same incident.

https://myetherwallet.com-eth.network/vintage/index.php?key=9090

https://i.imgur.com/7SfTIKT.jpg

and exactly the same as the original website.

https://vintage.myetherwallet.com/#send-transaction

https://i.imgur.com/81hJQcI.jpg

always bookmark some important websites and ignore pop ups when you surf the internet. because it might be one of the phishing attempts.
I am confused.  Can you tell me which is original and which is fake?

While using any of the wallets it is a must to be very careful, a small mistake will cause a big loss. What we have seen here is an example. I have come across such a phising site of coinbase. One day got an email stating confirm to withdraw funds. On clicking the link it took to a page which resembles same as coinbase. Somehow out of luck saw the url and got out of the page.

And a few moments ago one of our friends also hacked into his MEW account. Whether it's from phishing or whatever it is, but we have to be more careful in keeping our private key not to go to an inappropriate place because when we have lost it will be very difficult to return.

The original website posted some warnings about what the link above should look like. But anyways, this is a good reminder especially for the beginners out there.

If someone redirect on phishing site from google or any other sitez there's nothing to do. Bookmarking is the best solution because once you sync all the data with your mail, I guess will not face any knid of phishing in future.

True . Not all people are careful on what they do but most people in this world are careless enough not because they are dumb or whatsoever but because they are too busy  . You know most of us are working and rushing  .  They may mislook the url and after the insert thier private keys boom,they will notice that they lost all their funds afterwards   . This issue can be avoided if all are going to take time to read and check everything ( not just check but double check ) for more safety  .

Thats right , adblock can help block sites that pops out automaticaly but i think ad block cant block malware that is already infected the devices . You still need a good antivirus and you must always update its database  .  Bookmarking the original site url is also the last but but not the least that everyone should do  just to make sure that we are only accesing the correct website and not the phished ones    .

because scammers do everything to get money fraudulently.

Bookmarks are also one of the best ways to prevent scammers who are getting smarter at making crime traps.

No,it doesnt work that way.Your email might have been exposed where you might able to register or input it into other services/websites.

And then.. Myetherwallet official team tweeted on their account to change DNS , Server , Appearance or something I dont know which hopefully all can easily access "the real one" myetherwallet site.
Maybe next time.. you must bookmark "the real one" myetherwallet site because until now , phising sites still exist. And thanks for this thread explain about myetherwallet phising sites

MyEtherWallet wallet is mostly being attacked by many users with creating fake added link with it.
When there is huge amount in any wallet and that user incorrectly accessed the fake site means they may face heavy loss. Only thing users has to realize the problems and be careful while accessing any sites.
