MyEtherWallet Hacked at DNS Level
MyEtherWallet hacked! Claims 'Blue', "the only secure ERC20 token" (in their own words).
From Blue's official twitter handle a series of tweets were posted, reporting a security breach on the MyEtherWallet.
Be very careful on all MEW transfers, we have reason to believe MEW has been hacked.— BLUE - Trade BLUE on CoinExchange (@EthereumBlue) January 9, 2018
The Blue team while stating how safe their wallet is, claimed that "the official MyEtherWallet website is compromised on the DNS level in some regions."

Blue's twitter account kept spitting fine on MyEtherWallet and suggested users to stay safe my sending their funds to other hardware wallets or to the Blue wallet. Unsurprisingly Blue made sure to make people know how secure their wallet it, over MyEtherWallet. Just hope, this revelation is not part of some professional vendetta.
To our friends: the safest route now his to send any MEW based wallet tokens to a secure hardware wallet, or the BLUE wallet. Please stay safe.— BLUE - Trade BLUE on CoinExchange (@EthereumBlue) January 9, 2018
The Blue team kept churning out tweets after tweets, which seemed like a promotion campaign for themselves than anything!
The FUD against MEW can only work in the favor of Blue.
MyEtherWallet responded to the charges through their official twitter account.
They were definitely not amused with the whole situation and the way 'Blue' has painted the picture, can we blame them?
Trust is the most important thing in this community. Any team who spreads fear, creates chaos, and lies to people for their own selfish benefit can kiss my ass.— MyEtherWallet.com (@myetherwallet) January 9, 2018
