Phishing site reported - postupper

in steemit •  7 months ago

Never give your password and double check on which website you really are!

I already warned you about several (potential) scam attempts (see bottom of this post for a list of them). Here is a new one. Thanks to @ace108 for catching my attention and notifying about this new scam.

Scam Description

The scammer publish the following comment on user’s post

If you click on the link in the comment, you will be redirected to the following site:


Lower on the page, there is a description of the “services” provided and an “Join Now” button.

If you click on the “Join Now” button, the following page will be displayed:

The site is a fake SteemConnect login page!

The goal of the creator of this website is clearly to steal your credentials to hack your account!

Preventive action activated

I will add any account sending phishing links to the black list of my Warning-Bot and it will issue warnings with a link to this post, notifying users of the malicious activity of those accounts.

If you find similiar pishing attemps, contact me on steem.chat

To protect yourself, you can:

  • always double check before clicking on a link, especially if this links take you away from steemit.com.
  • verify the reputation of people writing comments on your posts. A user with a low reputation shoud trigger you attention.

Previous threat alerts

If you missed them, please find here the previous alerts I published:

reminder

A bit of paranoia is the basis of security.
There are a few simple rules to follow in order to avoid having your account hacked:

Rule 1: NEVER, I repeat, NEVER use or give your owner key or password!

Rule 2: Use your posting key to login, post and vote on trusted websites like steemit.com or busy.org.

Rule 3: NEVER give your active key as this key allows to control your funds! Only use your active key for special operation like money transfer or account update on trusted websites like steemit.com.

Rule 4: Anywhere else, if you are requested to provide any of the above key: RUN AWAY!!!

4 simple rules. It's not much to remember. Follow them scrupulously, and you will only have to laugh at unsuccessful attempts from scammers.

Spread the words, resteem this post to your friends, and you will make the platform safer.

Thanks for reading!

Great work @arcange, although can I ask why your 'vote for my witness' link goes through to (the real) Steem connect; why not just link directly to the witness page?

Thanks again, we need people like you :-)

Because I'm not in the top 50. A link to the "witness page" would require people to scroll down, type my name, put your active key ... so boring ;)

Get new account keys NOW

click on your avatar on the upper right and change password

I am not sure how this works in detail, but you might need, after you got new master password, on the other keys to show the new ones.

Safe them in a safe place and be very careful to whom you give any key, and never give away master key.

Thank you for information @arcange

Thanks for this information and nice vlog

Good ..
Thanks @arcange

OMG! i already did...what can i do now?

·

Change password immediately! Especially owner key, master password, then it will generate a set of new keys for you.

Your account is low value, so this person is probably lying in wait until you make more, so change now!

Your work is excellent.
Thank you for updating this information and for worrying about safety at Steemit

Great list. Thank you sir @arcange

Nice post @arcange, but I don't see anything about upvotes sellers...
Anyway, We must fight againts scammers in steemit!

Hola gracias , estoy tratando de unirme a tu chat pero no me toma la contraseña , asi que me enviaron un enlace para cambiarla lo segui y tarda en iniciar la pagina ¿esta bien que tarde?.

Great to hear there is a list.. it stinks to be surrounded by scammers. So what is the solution if you gave away any of these keys? Is it the end of yout Steemit account? What I miss is a solution.

·

what is the solution if you gave away any of these keys?

Quite simple: if you are still in control of your account, change your password. Doing this, all your keys will be updated.

Is it the end of yout Steemit account?

It might be if you gave you owner key.

Thanks. I have muted the offending comment/blog.

Hay! Just wanted to thank you for doing all this work to try and clean up the fucking mess that the BOTS have made. Unreal hey? BOTS sure are StuPid eh? If they did something FUNNY from time to time, I wouldn't mind so much. But as it is -- they aren't really any more harm than a typical useful "idiot" - running around posting #commie claptrap or other such nonsense. #DoDolphinsScreamAtElectricSheep ? #BladeRunner #h2g2 #DOUGLASADAMS #VOGONPOETRY #OSC www.hatrack.com #endersgame #bean

Do you also get your info from the steemcleaners?

Because I reported that one from @ronald93 - albeit just for comment spam, since I didn't even thought about doing what he wanted from me ;)

·

I'm working with @steemcleaners. Glad to read you didn't felt in the trap.

Good job, thanks to you (and others like you) Steemit can be a better-safer place.
