Myetherwallet Users Report Missing Funds.
On April 24, scores of Myetherwallet users began to report suspicious activity when trying to access the web-based ethereum interface. As the web’s most popular client-side ethereum wallet, MEW is widely used for sending money to crowdsales, buying Cryptokitties, and conducting many more day-to-day transactions that involve sending ether or ERC20 tokens. The platform does not hold user funds, but like all websites it is still at risk of being hacked by having its DNS servers taken over, exposing the data of anyone who interacts with the service. Shortly after rumors began to circulate, MEW issued a tweet to confirm their veracity:

MEW is vulnerable to phishing and should be protected to be even more stringent
if the autentucator can be used in MEW must be very secure

MyEtherwallet might be hacked but hackers cannot modify or sabotage the ETH blockchain. This news might be fake, or a part of whale price manipulation. Whales are getting richer by rebuying the dumps by weak hands.

People should just all get Ledger wallets. Then a hacker needs to press the button as well to send funds from your account which is more difficult than just to get a userid and password.
