MetaMask Discovers Security Vulnerability in Older Versions of Its Crypto Wallet

On Wednesday, MetaMask said that it uncovered a critical security vulnerability in older versions of its crypto wallet with the help of security researchers at Halborn. The security firm was awarded a bounty of $50,000 for the discovery.

Apparently, the exploit affects all browser versions of MetaMask wallet versions prior to the 10.11.3 update, and all operating systems if all three circumstances were met, but not mobile versions.
