dMania is down for now because of a mining script attack

in dmania •  2 years ago 

Somehow dMania got infected with a crypto mining script. I don't know how it got there. Maybe some malicious library or a xss attack.  

I took down dMania to protect all users until I fix it. ( dMania-bot is also down and won't upvote anything).
All your keys are safe, because no keys are stored or entered via dMania. Everything key related is handled via SteemConnect.

I want to clarify that I had nothing to do with the mining script. Mining scripts have even infected big websites like YouTube in the past -> https://www.tomsguide.com/us/youtube-mining-malware,news-26530.html. This can potentially happen to every website.
I take this threat very seriously and try to resolve it as fast as I can.

dMania will be online again when the issue is resolved.

Hey @zombee will you tell us how the script got there when you figure it out so many of us can try and protect our sites too?

Okay! Thanks for the update! Was quite shocked when I was going to post my spicy memes and couldn't enter to dmania :( . I hope we can get it back quick and continue our daily dosis of memes.

3-4 years ago,
A virus infected my "local" pc. It has add 1 line iframe/javascript code all html files. Antivirus program could not find because that innocent. I was deleting all files from server and upload my local backup(!) to server :)
When page runing that line was loading real code.

You can control all external request in html/iframe and js.

Hope you will fix things as soon as you can and dmania goes live once again. We trust you. And I can't hold my memes in my stomach for long.... :))

I appreciate this @dmania @kid4life

Now you do, editing your comment doesn't make it right

ahahhaah. What did he wrote?

something like "@dmania needs to be down 4ever..."

I guess the bot doesn't really appreciate his stolen memes
