I see total of 55 accounts were hacked and I like to advice them to immediately check your wallets and take necessary security actions.
Check here : What you should do now
And check this article by @xpilar : Who has access to your account, has it been hacked?

CR's please inform this to members ASAP.

Thank you.

Hi @besticofinder

See one of my previous posts and what should also be done
Keys dont matter anything if you have given access to posting to any app
it will still continue to work as posting auth (not the keys but the access token), unless you revoke access

Thank you sir. I added it to this article. Really useful for all the users !

omg... @besticofinder Thank you so much for informing and alerting us.. I think we should not wait until this happens to us, we also must be very cautious from now onward.

Thank you for this.

Unfortunately there is little that can be done if people have given posting auth to apps in the past.

People need to check and revoke auth's that are no longer needed.

Exactly. Steemit users must consider this seriously otherwise they will loss their funds.. Is there any possibility to introduce 2FA (mobile) to steemit wallet ?

My God.. Thank u so much for the details brother..
