RE: Stay frosty on security

in LeoFinance2 months ago

That sucks. Did the person say how they were able to get hacked like that? It would be good to be able to avoid that. I was just thinking the other day that I need to go through my account and revoke all of the stuff that I am no longer using. I think a lot of people left their Hive keys the same as their STEEM keys and it is a good idea to switch those up. It was one of the first things I did.

No, but I suspect phishing. Also, some people have authorities from years back that are not even on Hive, but never changed their keys when coming to Hive. The early authorities often asked for active, not just posting. Some even asked for owner and got it. The first thing I did also, was change my keys here.

Oh dang, that really sucks for them. Did that new Hive keyprotector service not catch it?
