Fun Fact: Did you know that Wealth is People, and, the quality of a man's wealth is the abundance of credible people he has around him? - me

I WAS HACKED.png

Happy Prosperous New Year to you😊
It's another great week with awesome questions. There has never been a more appropriate or ideal time for me to answer to the LOH #64 question than today. It's a factual occurrence with excellent timing, and it's the reason I'll be addressing the question

1️⃣ What are you most grateful for right now?

LadiesOfHive-Divider.png

I'm trying to be calm while I type, but it can't wait. It has to be done because what should have been a night of weeping has transformed into a night of joy and laughing.
This occurred just hours ago, yesterday on January 4th 2022. I'd just ended a nice talk with pals on the @theterminal discord channel. I got interested in an excellent project called HIVELIVE owned by @bambukah, so I thought to register and also donate because of just how well developed it is.
I did not have enough Hive in my wallet (barely 0.78hive) and I wanted donating 2hive. So i carried on to My wallet at Roqqu, exchanged my local naira currency to hive and transferred to my hive-engine wallet.

I planned to go talk to my brother in his room and then continue with my agenda, but a sense came over me to remain and finish what I started. So I signed into my hive keychain app and, lo and behold, all of my accounts were reading ZERO (0). I assumed there was a network issue, so I went to my PeakD, Ecency, and Roqqu wallets to see whether the transfer was successful, and it was, indeed, "successful." I then looked through my "transfer history" on the Hive-keychain app and spotted a transfer to HACKER-XNITRO.

My heart fell_This is where my Hive Life took a bad-turn.

TheTerminal-2.png

I quickly opened discord and alerted the @theterminal Admin Ms @thekittygirl to please check her DM, narrated the story to her and before anything first, she directed me to quickly change my passwords.

Screenshot_20220105-004454_Discord.jpg

I was so disoriented that I couldn't think straight, and I was weeping and freaking out. This Hacker-Xnitro was already on the move clearing my accounts.

Ms @thekittygirl then questioned me about what I had done before to that. She was doing everything she could to find the cause of the problem.

I couldn't remember anything about the Memo or Roqqu to Hive engine, so I told her I was attempting to register with HiveLive, and she contacted the developer though she was certain it had nothing to do with that cause the developer is well respected, friendly and indeed credible.

Meanwhile, I couldn't breathe or think clearly, so I contacted my mentor, @badmusgreene, explained what was going on, and he, too, leapt into action. I gave him permission to check whatever he needed to verify for me and fix everything that needed to be changed because I just couldn't focus.

Screenshot_20220105-032537_Telegram.jpg

I immediately received a ping from HIVELIVE Developer @bambukah informing me that Ms. Kitty had contacted him and that I should provide him with more information. He was so composed. They were all calm, which I knew they needed to be since I wasn't. Mr. Bambuka successfully tracked down my wallet and solved the issue. He then provided me a screenshot of my MEMO and inquired as to what code it was. Doom! My secret active key was out in the open, available for evil doers and hackers to use. I didn't know I had copied and pasted my active keys into the MEMO area while moving from my Roqqu wallet to my Hive Engine wallet.

I hated and cursed myself, like how stupid can i be. Who would post their Active key for public Eye? I mean, I have been so careful since joining Hive 2months ago, I tried to avoid doing all that we were warned not to do so what happened? Arrghhh I was mad at myself.

😭I had Lost all my Hive-Engine Money and Tokens, my 24,000 starbits I had kept for an event on Sunday, my gifted 20 staked Pizza for !PIZZA, 12 LOH token I earned from day 1, 212 PIMP from PYPT... Everything I patiently earned and stored all gone in seconds😭

Capturffe.JPG

Just when I had given up hope, my brother came to my room to let me try his new smoothie recipe, only for him to be greeted with tears, sour eyes, and a runny nose. I told the scenario and then went on the phone with Mr. Badmusgreene, who informed me that he'd successfully secured my account and annulled the transfer of my Hive Engine savings of 3-HIVE & 17-HBD, then Pings followed and, lo and behold,
Ms @thekittygirl gifted me 10HIVE
Mr @bambukah gifted me 10HIVE
Mr @stayten gifted me 10HBD

I wasn't expecting none of that, I just broke into tears of joy as my brother joined me, we got really dramatic cause this was indeed TOTAL RESTORATION OF WHAT WAS STOLEN FROM ME_I Never had that much in my wallet before the incident. Wow! God is so Good!

⚠️Please protect your Account at all cost, there are a few rotten selfish lot whose job is only but to steal and destroy.⚠️

🚫SHAME! BIG SHAME ON YOU HACKER-XNITRO CAUSE I KNOW YOU'LL READ THIS, I FORGIVE YOU AND I AM PRAYING FOR YOU!🚫
I would start earning again and this time around, better enlightened about security on the hive-blockchain.

So, my response to the @ladiesofhive #64 Question is;

💝RIGHT NOW I AM MOST GRATEFUL FOR PEOPLE __ I WILL FOREVER BE GRATEFUL TO GOD FOR THE VALUABLE PEOPLE HE HAS PLACED IN MY LIFE AT EVERY GOOD OR BAD TURN.

I AM SO GRATEFUL FOR VALUABLE PEOPLE __ I AM GRATEFUL FOR YOU TAKING THE TIME TO READ THIS. I LOVE EVERYBODY__ I AM BLESSED WITH AWESOME FAMILY, FRIENDS, WELL-WISHERS AND YOU ALL WILL FOREVER BE MY GREATEST WEALTH!

This is my Entry to the Ladies of Hive Contest #64 and I invite @kaelci a fantastic artist whom I'm friends with to come join in the contest as I'm interested in knowing what she's most grateful for right now.

Wow @queenstartt! I am so sorry this happened to you. There are so many scams nowadays and we have to be diligent and careful. I ran into one earlier today at work (not blockchain related) and realized it for what it was. Kudos to everyone who came to your rescue! Take care my friend and be safe.💜🤗

It's easy at times to forget what's on your clipboard. I am sure you will be fine in the future. It's just scary! My husband and I one year, had our identity stolen through the IRS and they got over a $5000 refund by 'amending' our tax return. It's akin to being violated. I know how you feel. Take care my friend and have a lovely day! Love ya back!🤗💜🤗

Wow, omg. All of this happened while I was sleeping.. I'm sorry I wasn't online to be there for you, not that I could've done much other than offering my consolation and throwing in some stupid memes to try and calm you down.

I'm really glad this had a happy ending for you, but you really gotta be careful.

Mistakes happen, and we learn from them. I'm pretty sure sharing that story will benefit others too to learn from someone else's experience.

Onward and forward, talk to you on discord!

Much !LUV ❤ and !PIZZA 🍕

Copy and pasting an active key into the memo space is easily done. Your story is a good reminder to all of us to pay attention. 😍

Oh no! Hi @queenstarr. So this was what you meant in Terminal chat room. I wondered what prompted you advice, so I searched and found your profile.

I didn't know I had copied and pasted my active keys into the MEMO area while moving from my Roqqu wallet to my Hive Engine wallet.

Wow. That hacker is just mean. How do these people sleep at night? I am sorry about you experience and agree that having people support you is worth being grateful for.

I will use your experience as a lesson and guard my keys well. Thank you. You will recover back your loss in no time. 🤗

I know how You feel, it kinda happened to me. Although they did not get my money, what they did get was the ability to blast out to all my contacts that there was an "Airdrop" to sign up for, with my account.
They then started robbing them.
Well a good friend @illyan90 notified me, and yep at first you can't believe your eyes!
I changed keys, sent replays to about 200msgs to not click on the Airdrop. Bad..
I think some are still angry with me from this, a few had their account wiped out! 😳🙁😢
And I felt Horrible!
Still do a bit, though I was a victim as well.
As with You, I am very, very cautious these days - cause once you see it - this whole thing gets "shaky"...
I am glad you found help, and that your back!
Take care and have a,
"Very Blessed Day"!
