Wallet vulnerability release.

This release checks if any of your wallet contracts is vulnerable and urges you to move your funds to a new wallet.

This is a recommended update!
You should NOT use wallet contracts from before homestead, OR the owner accounts of these wallet contracts until you moved the funds to a secure wallet!

Move your funds to the new wallet (this might involve multisig transactions)

Don't worry all sending is safe, until your not sending from the wallet, or any owner account to an unknown contract!

Check if funds arrived at the new wallet, and write down the wallet address!

Seriously, write down your wallet address, and also backup your keystore (Main Menu -> Accounts -> Backup)

Delete the old wallet

This will remove the warnings from your owner accounts as well.

After that you can use your wallet and your owner accounts again! But you should always be aware that interacting with unknown contracts can be dangerous!
