WARNING: If you voted on steemengineteam post change your keys immediately



Comments 89


Note: changing your keys might not be enough if you have authorized apps to use your account. You must revoke the app in order to keep them from using your vote.

Thanks for bringing that up. Right now it is unsure if they have keys or using a posting authority.

It doesn’t appear they have their own authority and are either using someone else’s they has access to or more likely using actual posting keys farmed via an app or accidentally leaked.

They don't use steemconnect. I signed up to check and you have to enter your posting key onto the side. It's probably saved into their own DB. So everyone who is affected by these fuckers should change his/her keys asap.

Maybe not related to this case but it's always good to review what apps are authorized to your account.

19.10.2019 18:06

This app is not listed there.


Please excuse the editing.
In this app, the private key was saved directly on the website :-(

How did you get the names on your list?

What is mytechtrail? And that is last year. My keys have changed quite a few times even for this year.

For Vienna, i downvoted it manually earlier

And for the 3rd link you gave, it was manually too

What am talking about is the Ireland post where my name is listed as voter on your list, yet am not on steemworld and steemd for that Ireland post. So thats the odd one.

20.10.2019 20:23

Then you must be in the clear :)

The list was all votes on the account, with number of votes next to each account.

Apologies for the confusion.

My name is on that list but I don't see any vote going out from my account to that post in, I just checked the last 3 days using steemworld. The only votes are the ones I just did manually (4% and then back to 0%). Why is my username on that list if no vote came out from my account? @abh12345?

20.10.2019 23:33

Yes that is the reason and you have likely changed your keys and/or removed authority so should be good.

thesteemengine is around for quite a while and I think to remember that this is a vote-for-a-vote thingy where users sign up with their private posting key. I'm not sure if there is really a leak...

19.10.2019 19:28

I saw that but it is obviously storing keys as it used votes from people who have not logged in a long time.

19.10.2019 20:43

I didn't sign up to autovote for them...

It seems the their autovote-"feature" is checked by default when you link an account there :/

20.10.2019 15:49

I'm not linked to their Steem account - just their official steem-engine.com site. I'm not autovoting them (I double checked.) It would also appear - looking at the Steem account mentioned above - that these people are trying to do a serious phishing scam.

Not trying to be argumentative, just trying to help those who are trying to figure out the leak.

Just to be sure that there is no misunderstanding: This post is about https://steemengine.net and @steemengineteam and has nothing to do with https://steem-engine.com or the tribes.

I didn't think so.
But your previous comment was very confusing to me then. I haven't linked an account with them...

20.10.2019 17:09

I agree. It isn't a leak... it's their business model of defaulted autocuration vote trading.

Seems like upvotes are mostly done with the users of this application. Regarding the app accounts, here are the most common apps authorized amongst upvoters (2810)

[('busy.app', 1199), 
('steemauto', 727),
 ('dtube.app', 688), 
('steem.app', 615),
 ('dmania.app', 552), 
('dlive.app', 530), 
('bottracker.app', 441), 
('steemhunt.com', 358), 
('partiko-steemcon', 350), 
('utopian.app', 289)]

This information itself doesn't point anything exactly, though. I was curious, here is the data for others also.

19.10.2019 20:33

okay - the only one of those I use is SteemAuto. I just checked that one too (changing keys, etc, with SteemConnect as well...) I didn't have any unauthorized autovotes.

And someone claimed that Steem is going to be boring.

19.10.2019 21:17

I think there was 2850 or so votes. They probably have a lot of their own accounts. Many are probably dead at this point. But I would say a lot are voting without permission.

Then click on "vote details" - so you can use Ctrl-F to search for your Acc.


Many thanks for the information @themarkymark. Is it already known whether https://steemengine.net is the bad guy?

I removed auths from most steemconnect apps, but one SCOTAUTO does not trig in my memory.

Hope you are able to find that leak if that is what is going on.

Luckily, my vote is not listed, but I am experiencing a similar issue related to @shadowbot website.

Even though there is no authorization on steemconnect related to them and even though I have reset my keys several times, they still have access (posting) to my account. I already tried to contact them, but got no response and the setting on their website that supposedly would allow the removal of my account is broken. Other people seem to be experiencing the same issue.

Does anyone know how I can solve this problem?

@themarkymark, thank you for heads up! Another reminder of why I voted for you as a witness. πŸ‘

Looks like I have voted for that account since my vote was on that list. I revoked all the posting keys on third party apps. But it is not good for the ecosystem. I do not use steemconnect.com anyway - prefer the Steemkeychain extension myself.

Maybe there is a chance to put an extra field on blockchain, when the third party does something on behalf of a user. That would make it easier for all of us to find the bad actors who harm the system.

steem-auths

Here is an example of what I mean. I took a real transaction and changed the data to better illustrate the idea.

What do you think abut it?

On steem?

Self proclaimed community watchdogs are actually hacking and stalking people.

This group https://goldvoice.club/steem/@fyrstikken, They are hacking people that enter this discord server https://discordapp.com/invite/sqxV63P . Once you are hacked they profile you long enough to know all of your activities. They introduce workplace gangstalking visits and bring it to your attention cleverly and discretly so only you get it. They are very covert and tricky with everthing they say and do in this server. Some claim to have worked for or are working with the FBI and the NSA. Mixed with decomisioned traders and coding criminals, Its a scary mix of creepy people and thier intent is to drive you crazy and deplete everything you have ever aquired in life, even your freedom.

My hacking started with them introducing ransomeware that has options, dump my coin or delete my system drive. They acnowledged this to me in the server as it happened.

This hacking and stalking is done so they can manipulate the target to pump and dump for them. Threating and Making victims wear head phones, so nobody in your household can hear thier dramitization towards you. In 2017 this server was sidemarked as a drama show for entertainment purposes only as en excuse to say whatever they want all the way down to killing a politician. They have a server side command called "hey asshole" making a promt come up instructing everyone to wear headphones. They want everyone wearing headphones so nobody in your vicinity can hear them mess with you. Fystikken says its because of "mic feedback" but once your a target you get exactly why they make eveyone wear headphones.

With headphones on they subliminally direct victims with very low suggestive whispers mixed into their radio shows music. Combine this with them being able to manipulate their own individual outputs sound volume, which they control on the server side, they can pick what individual people hear and what at any given time. They decide who you hear on the server and change the volume controls for them. They can make some really low or off for those trying to investigate. They control who hears what and know who is who.

This team will find absolutely everything they can about you prior to using thier sugjestive and threatning program. They Introduce pictures that mean something only to the target, inducing paranoia while they watch and listen thru all of your circumvented devices. They are very aware of what makes you tick. They know your work schedule and use it for work stalking along side of this. I received multiple threating letters to my work and home addressed to my screen name from this group.

Fyrstikken tells people to sell their houses to buy crypto then dumps it on them. He has done many pump and dump scams. Quatloo being one of the first I witnessed and was done multiple times thru 2016 and 2017 them. It should be investigated for fraud. https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=655793.0

Dude I saw this exact same thread on reddit. To be honest I'm not sure what to make of it. On the one hand @fyrstikken is a whale on here but that guy who wrote the thread, claims he is broke. I mean give me a broke guy with at least a hundred thou in his wallet and I'll show you the street where the devil spends his weekends at lol. On the other hand, because this same thread has been copied and pasted like a thousand times, it feels more like a smear campaign than a genuine complaint against an individual. If it is a smear campaign then you my friend have enabled in some part by copying and pasting it on here.

I was a victim of this. I have since changed my password and keys.
My guess is that is was some form of "Upvote Bank" or Steem Auto that got hacked because according to Steemworld.org for that account, most of the upvotes were $0.00 and 100% but some were like 77% or 10% or whatever people had set their amounts to.
