[Warning] Please remove your Post Auth from Steemdb.online (Autovoting Service)


A lot of users using Steem are also using auto voting services like steemdb.online. The problem with this kind of services is that you are giving these apps officially your posting authority. This means that the app is able to to vote, unvote, downvote, comment and post on your behalf.

We have to remember that even when the blockchain Steem itself is decentralized, that when using 3rd party services like steemdb.online users still have to rely on trust of the operating party. This posting is an official warning of using steemdb.online and a recommendation to remove any posting authorities related to this app. Please resteem as often as possible to spread this information.

1. History

The current service steemdb.online is a forked version from steemauto and was operated from a now former witness @steem.supporter. It had been checked with other witnesses that the database for this autovoting service was manipulated to vote his own posts without informing the users.

@steem.supporter has closed his witness server a few hours ago and it is recommend to revoke any votings for this witness account.

2. Remove Posting Authorities

  • Current service address : steemdb.online

To remove the posting authority given to this auto voting service you don't need to access steemdb.online. There is a service from one of the main witnesses @steemchiller where you can easily remove any authorities in combination with Keychain. Please use this opportunity to remove also any unnecessary authorities for apps that are not anymore running or you forgot that you have given the rights.

steemdb.online is using the account @steemauto.app. Please look at posting authorities and press the X button on the right. Don't forget to press "SAVE CHANGES" and confirm it with Keychain. Refresh the page to see if the authority has been removed. If you don't see @steemauto.app anymore under posting authorities, you are good to go.

2. Remove Witness vote

The witness server from @steem.supporter has been closed a few hours ago. If you are voting for this witness, you can now move your vote to another witness if needed or remove it.

3. Autovoting replacement service

@italygame is running as witness from the Italian community and is running a service named steem-fanbase.com. The service is offering similar functions.

  • Schedule posts
  • Autoclaim
  • Trail
  • Fanbase Upvotes

But please remember that these kind of services will also need to have your posting authorization and that the service is used based on the trust of the operator.

This information is very useful, thank you for reminding.

Not revoking Auth but changing password is the function the same as revoking Auth?

03.06.2021 04:39
0

Nope, if you change only your password, the auth is still given.

03.06.2021 05:31

can this be dangerous for the security of our Steemit account?

03.06.2021 07:57

As long as the Posting Auth is given, it is possible that upvoting, downvoting and posting is possible. Additionally any 3rd party service that would allow sending value with posting keys could be compromised also.

Nothing better than doing your things manually AND not giving another authority to do something simple like vote for your witnesses. When I was reviewing who to vote for, I realized that some witnesses who are well positioned among the twenty have a negative reputation, that caught my attention and it must be that we vote with closed eyes Without checking who they are, much less since when they have not entered the Steemit platform.

When I saw that there are witnesses who have up to a year or six months without entering this platform that are supposed to be pending.

That is why I made my own list of witnesses to vote, I also think that we should all do it, it should be more in the achievements that @cryptokannon proposes because if their role is so important in this blockchain, we must show our support because this benefits this platform.

Nada mejor que hacer sus cosas de manera manual Y no darle autoridad a otro para hacer algo sencillo como votar por tus testigos. Cuando estuve revisando por quién votar me di cuenta que algunos testigos que están bien posicionados entre los veinte tienen una reputación negativa, eso me llamo mucho la atención y debe ser que votamos a ojos cerrados Sin revisar quien es y mucho menos desde cuándo no ingresa a la plataforma Steemit.

Cuando ví que hay testigo que tienen hasta un año o seis meses sin ingresar a esta plataforma que se supone deben estar pendientes.

Por eso hice mi propia lista de testigos para votar, además pienso que todos debemos hacerlo, es más debería estar en los logros que propone @cryptokannon porque si su rol es tan importante en esta cadenas de bloques, debemos mostrar nuestro apoyo porque esto beneficia a esta plataforma.
