Hacker Warning: Victims Come Forward!


Recently a new type of hacker has been active.

The hacker account name is @test240 and what it does is steal both STEEM and SBD from it's victims. It does not change keys or do anything that isn't directly related to stealing funds.

In order to stop this hacker we need more information from the victims. We already have some leads thanks to some victims and thanks to @blocktrades. But we need more information.

Were you hacked?

Message @guiltyparties GuiltyParties [.com]#5071 on Discord right away or ...

If you're keeping a large amount of STEEM, put it into a "cold wallet" which is an account you don't use for every day posting and voting. You can attach it to "trail" your vote or you can just keep it in there in liquid and trade.

There is a proposal on the SPS about it. Take a look.

I'm working on Steem hardware wallet support for Ledger. Currently having some issues with transaction signing due to some weird issue converting serialized transaction to a digest in C

Definitely could use some SSL/TLS love but to its credit it does use SteemConnect. Any idea who owns it?

I used Grammarly extension in my chrome browser and I'm not sure I login in steemauto with steemconnet, normally i used to keep my every information in my gmail account and google drive. Hope that could be a cause.

Thanks for the heads ups, from having a quick look at the mentioned account followers it shows the same peeps behind lots of troll and fake accounts marcusmalone, sp-group are behind it or involved somehow. I have a big list that I have been putting together for all these troll fake account created for the past few month if its of any help let me know where I can submit it to and it will be my pleasure to share it.

Keep up the great works, kudos

Please what of those who lost their password? I am a victim of this. I lost my formal Steemit password and it was devastating I must tell you.

Why you downvote my Post https://goldvoice.club/steem/@honolulu/so-vor-mich-hingedacht-ueber-das-lernen to zero ?

This is no spam this was a blog post - no copy paste, a critical thinking thing...

I am really upset

If they were stolen they're gone. Thanks for reaching out via Discord, I replied.

Good outcome in the end.

I suppose with every process that is somewhat automatic there will be false positives + I by using steemit we accept that people can flag us for no reason other than they feel like it. It's a bit different when it's a massive account with a specific purpose.

Hi @spaminator

test240 wallet:

2 months ago Transfer 1400.000 STEEM to blocktrades 1f1c4d69-c0f2-49ea-a71f-e1bcc6ffb57a

That's so confusing. Is this account somehow related to blocktrades? :/ Any idea?
