"Shitcoin Wallet, which launched late last year, is downloadable as an extension for Google Chrome. It invites users to create wallets, which they can then unlock with private keys or an authentication certificate. Shitcoin Wallet claims that these keys are encrypted, meaning the service shouldn’t be able to read them."

"Just two days ago, Cointelegraph reported on an Ethereum (ETH) wallet Chrome browser extension known as “Shitcoin Wallet” that has reportedly been injecting malicious javascript code from open browser windows to steal data from its users."


"A browser crypto wallet is injecting malicious JS to steal secrets from @myetherwallet, @idexio, @binance, @neotrackerio, @SwitcheoNetwork. Extension-native wallet create also sends secrets to their backend!"


"Hackedzec’s story surfaced just a few days after Harry Denley, the director of security at MyCrypto, discovered that “Shitcoin Wallet”, a browser based Ethereum wallet that is listed on Google Chrome’s Web Store, was also malicious. Denley found that Shitcoin Wallet stole users private keys, as well as login information for sites such as Binance."


"Denley wrote on Twitter that it is injecting malicious javascript code to steal information. This, according to Denley, occurs in two ways. First, the extension snoops for credentials of any wallet created within the extension. Second, when users access Myetherwallet, Idex, Switcheo or NeoTracker, the extension steals log-in credentials and private keys."


"Shitcoin Wallet has since been listed on the domain warning list for the popular in-browser Ethereum dapp interface, MetaMask. “MetaMask believes this domain could currently compromise your security and, as an added safety feature, MetaMask has restricted access to the site,” states the message by MetaMask that pops up when entering the website for Shitcoin Wallet."


"Luckily, Shitcoin Wallet only has 625 users, according to the extension’s listing on the Chrome Web Store. One of them is already upset: “It steals your login data and your tokens do not download it is a scam,” commented Tony Nicklow today in a one-star review."

The Shitcoin Wallet extension was created as a supposed wallet for storing ethereum and handling ERC20 smart contracts. Multiple locations on the site advertised it as safe and secure, and the privacy policy even specifically states the private key is kept secure. However, the wallet is malicious and instead captures user data on multiple crypto-related websites, enabling the creator to steal people's fund. There were over 650 downloads before the application was removed rom the Google Play store. It's unknown what funds were lost, if any.
