The tweets and their security alert posted to their blog imply that all owners of Parity multi-sig wallets are currently unable to move their funds. There is no suggestion of if and when a fix will be made available.

This is not the first time Parity has had issues with its multi-sig wallet. On 19th July 2017, a malicious user successfully exploited the multi-sig contract that was in place at the time and stole  $32 million worth of Ether, mainly from ICO multi-sig wallets.

The news will leave users hesitant to use Parity in the future, being the second serious vulnerability exploited during the last few months.
