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?

    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.

  • @nokodemion

    Those victims are all dead accounts... got fished 1-2 years ago... interesting that the last 3 months they are getting sucked dry... as if their fishingbowl got hacked...

  • @djlethalskillz

    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.

    Why do you keep flagging my posts?

  • @daniella619

    A hardware wallet is a nice idea. People can keep their tokens safe

  • @crypto.piotr

    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?
