Got hacked on my metamask account. Call me a n00b, stupid, whatever.
But I want to understand how that is even possible. I need to understand what has been compromised. I am even worried now to use my Trezor (which was not involved with the metamask account).
What happend: I had a couple of SAIs and DAIs on my account sitting there for like 3 months. I got a last transaction 2 weeks ago.
Then someone sent me some ETH and then moved everything out.
It's not my life savings but it always hurts, especially if one believes to not be the dumbest dumbfuck.
So - please help me understand, how is that even possible? I usually use Trezor for all crypto stuff, but for a specific app they suggested to use metamask to be paid. These guys are absolutely trustworthy.
The metamask interface even shows "History: You have no transactions" for that account. So I can exclude to have made a transaction 3am totally drunk. I should conclude that someone has access to the private key?
So AFAIK, "Metamask stores your private keys using your browser's data store. " "Metamask is a Chrome extension (or is directly integrated with Brave), and it stores its private keys in the browser -- not on a remote server" Does metamask store private key on server or anywhere else?
This means that someone must have got access to my browser. 19th April I had my cache completely wiped. My metamask is secured via password which is very complex and stored in
I can't imagine any other way someone may have got access to my private keys...?
