Komodo was mentioned by Huobi as a coin to keep an eye on.

BIP-143 Vulnerability for Ledger and Tezos hardware wallets

Security researcher Saleem Rashid discovered the vulnerability that allowed an attacker to have compromised the client software of a user to increase transaction fees without confirmation on the device. The user should be tricked into signing a transaction at least twice, which isn’t an unrealistic scenario because the first transaction can be aborted pretending there was an error. A successful exploitation results in the loss of funds for the user. The attacker can also collude with a miner to profit from the transaction fees.

We thank Komodo developer pbca26 who already patched the KMD claiming tool so that users can continue to claim their rewards securely.
