Just two days ago, many users reported having their funds (an estimated $4 million) in their IOTA wallets stolen from an unknown source. The cause? Online seed generators. Online seed generators for IOTA are websites that provide users with a quick solution to generate a new seed for their IOTA wallet. When creating a new IOTA wallet, users are tasked with creating an 81-character seed rather than generation being baked-in. There are workarounds as outlined by the HelloIOTA website, which includes using an IPFS seed generator, or creating a key using either the Mac or Linux terminal. However, neither of which is as user-friendly as other wallets – possibly leaving new users turning toward these online generators.
