About the Details of the newly discovered vulnerability, the developers are silent so far. You will probably want to present to hackers, no attack vectors.information policy upset Wallet-owner
users of the very young Wallet are now encouraged to remove the Wallet application from their devices and replace it with the latest Version. Also on Twitter, the Beam describes the Team, what should the Users do that.Stop your current Beam Wallets immediately.Uninstall your Beam Wallet application and executable files from all the computers.Make sure that the application has been deleted. After read the documentation, where the Wallet App files are located.Download the Beam Wallet again only from this site (http://beam.mw/downloads). It will have THE SAME version numbers as previously published archives.
Make sure that the SHA256 of the archive published on the Website is consistent.Install the new App.
The message triggered a wave of indignation. For example, some Twitteratis don't see any reason to install the Wallet.
"giant Fail. App and CLI deleted. Not going to install BEAM for a while, and wait until it is safe and more information about the vulnerability is available.“
major fail. deleted app and cli. won't install BEAM for a while, better wait until it's safe and have more info regarding the vulnerability

Similar to the angle of the mouth of the Wallet owner is also the course of the BEAM Token on descent. The on 4. January 2019 born Altcoin has already seen bitter losses. Of his "all-time high" (10,03 US dollars) the share price dropped by almost 90 percent. Alone in the last 24 hours, the BEAM rate fell by almost 16 percent and is therefore only of 1.28 US dollars.
2019 can be used for BEAM anyway, only better.
