May be someone (like blockchain.info) tried to implement online multiple-outputs-transaction constructor and it went a bit wrong :)

this does involve blockchain.info's address, I don't think it was made through the site though.

Also there are two TXes with same fee.
This may be a risky coin re-minting attempt, but looks like TX was received by blockchain.info before being confirmed, so it's not.

The inputs don't contain anything expensive.  The outputs don't have any unusual scripts.

Either someone's feeling generous or they need to test their code more.  Smiley

Haha yeah, 42.94967296 sounds an awful lot like 2 ^ 32 = 4 294 967 296... Definitely needs more testing!

Oh my goodness, you're right.  Someone's storing values as a uint32_t and they dropped a satoshi on the floor.  That's an expensive mistake.  Hopefully they noticed!  I'm surprised it wasn't a 42.94967295 fee, though.

The is possibly an issue related to My Wallet, I have disabled new transactions while I investigate. If there is an issue it seems to be isolated to one particular address.

Edit: This has now been fixed and transactions re-enabled.
