An issue has been found in the latest release of Daedalus 0.13.0 (Cardano 1.5.0) which is affecting a small number of users.
The issue is with the spending password not being recognized, even though it is has been set for a wallet. It is preventing users from spending ada because Daedalus is not asking for a spending password when a transaction is created.
The issue is affecting only users who have skipped the previous major release of Cardano and who have upgraded directly from Daedalus 0.11.x (Cardano 1.3.x) to Dedalus 0.13.0 (Cardano 1.5.0). It is not affecting users who have upgraded from Daedalus 0.12.x (Cardano 1.4.x) to Daedalus 0.13.0 (Cardano 1.5.0).
The issue has been confirmed and the fix is in development. Users who are affected by this issue will be able to upgrade to Daedalus 0.13.1 (Cardano 1.5.1) shortly and are kindly asked to look out for updates soon.This issue is just a temporary inconvenience and is not posing any additional security concerns. This thread will be updated with new developments.
