My wallet private key has been conpromised and anytime I receive any eth transaction it automatically redirect to the Hacker wallet address almost immediately I'm so confused right now I need all the help I can get cause that's my business wallet address please

1 Answer 1


Usually that behavior indicates the private key has been compromised. Unfortunately there is nothing that can be done about the leaked address, create a new account, perhaps use a hardware wallet.

  • Hey @Ismael, sorry for off-topic but I wanted to ask you a followup on a deleted thread from 2 days ago. You mentioned that this contract has deployed the Address library. How can you tell? I thought the constructors would be called when the contract is deployed.

  • @dvdblk Because Address is the name of the verified contract, Address is a library and the very short bytecode make it unlikely it to be a contract, so it fits with being a library. If you are the developer make sure you keep a reference where each contracts was deployed, truffle print addresses where each contract was deployed, other tools should have similar output. If you have more doubts it is better to create a new question.
