I see some mysterious ETH withdrawals from my address. Could you please help me to understand why it happened?

I have an address 0xee5119... in my local Ethereum wallet. There are transactions 0xf86327... and 0xa668e5... that move some funds to the address 0x8f0d1d....

I do not recognize neither this address nor these transactions. Soon after that, funds are further moved to the address 0xc96d5d..., which has the current balance of 64063 ETH and a lot of activity.

Any ideas what might be going on here?

  • AFAI understood yours is not wallet contract but a plain EOA, there is no security issue with externaly owned addresses, or we would be ALL in trouble @AlexDarby – Roland Kofler Jul 4 '16 at 11:06
  • I think we need more information on this question please. What OS are you using? What wallet software? What were you trying to do? – T9b Jul 4 '16 at 11:52
  • @ RolandKofler Yes I know that but I thought the question poster might of been using a contract account from a old version of the wallet software. – Alex Darby Jul 4 '16 at 11:55
