RE: Important Security Announcement: Steemit CEO Ned Scott

in #steemit6 years ago

This article should mention that the Steem protocol (the "coin") was not hacked, nor was any smart contract running on top of the Steem protocol. This hack is a website hack where a hacker stole funds and account credentials, and not a hack on the coin itself, at least according to the best information available when this article was written.


The Steem protocol (the "coin") was not hacked this time . I own steem coins and would like to move them off line to a wallet to store safely but alas I cannot find a wallet if someone knows where , I would appreciate a link .Thanks in advance

Have you looked at Bitshares Openledger? They let you buy and sell OPEN.STEEM that you can then turn into anything of your choice via a service called Blocktrades. You own your own wallet in form of a "brainkey". The Openledger network run on a MIT designed blockchain dubbed Bitshares and is backed by BTS (underlying currency is Bitshares) i am coindup-hasho on OL

Which also means that a hard fork can't fix it.

I'm glad to see that too. Platform should develop no matter what happens.

Do people with big holding should consider changing their owner's/active keys?

My guess would be whatever key you login with may be compromised, but I have no clue as to the hack details.

The lesson (re)learned is to use a secure password that is difficult to guess. Also, I am hopeful that two factor authentication makes its way here soon.
