[Warning] Please remove your Post Auth from Steemdb.online (Autovoting Service)

in #steem4 months ago (edited)

A lot of users using Steem are also using auto voting services like steemdb.online. The problem with this kind of services is that you are giving these apps officially your posting authority. This means that the app is able to to vote, unvote, downvote, comment and post on your behalf.

We have to remember that even when the blockchain Steem itself is decentralized, that when using 3rd party services like steemdb.online users still have to rely on trust of the operating party. This posting is an official warning of using steemdb.online and a recommendation to remove any posting authorities related to this app. Please resteem as often as possible to spread this information.

1. History

The current service steemdb.online is a forked version from steemauto and was operated from a now former witness @steem.supporter. It had been checked with other witnesses that the database for this autovoting service was manipulated to vote his own posts without informing the users.

@steem.supporter has closed his witness server a few hours ago and it is recommend to revoke any votings for this witness account.

2. Remove Posting Authorities

  • Current service address : steemdb.online

To remove the posting authority given to this auto voting service you don't need to access steemdb.online. There is a service from one of the main witnesses @steemchiller where you can easily remove any authorities in combination with Keychain. Please use this opportunity to remove also any unnecessary authorities for apps that are not anymore running or you forgot that you have given the rights.

steemdb.online is using the account @steemauto.app. Please look at posting authorities and press the X button on the right. Don't forget to press "SAVE CHANGES" and confirm it with Keychain. Refresh the page to see if the authority has been removed. If you don't see @steemauto.app anymore under posting authorities, you are good to go.

2. Remove Witness vote

The witness server from @steem.supporter has been closed a few hours ago. If you are voting for this witness, you can now move your vote to another witness if needed or remove it.

3. Autovoting replacement service

@italygame is running as witness from the Italian community and is running a service named steem-fanbase.com. The service is offering similar functions.

  • Schedule posts
  • Autoclaim
  • Trail
  • Fanbase Upvotes

But please remember that these kind of services will also need to have your posting authorization and that the service is used based on the trust of the operator.

Thanks @steemchiller for ezpz authority removal

Hello @jayplayco
Can you please share this information.
thanks, May Your Health Be With YOU.

Thanks for the helpful article.

Speriamo che la questione si risolva presto

Thanks very much this article is realy helpful.

Thank you for information

Nada mejor que hacer sus cosas de manera manual Y no darle autoridad a otro para hacer algo sencillo como votar por tus testigos. Cuando estuve revisando por quién votar me di cuenta que algunos testigos que están bien posicionados entre los veinte tienen una reputación negativa, eso me llamo mucho la atención y debe ser que votamos a ojos cerrados Sin revisar quien es y mucho menos desde cuándo no ingresa a la plataforma Steemit.

Cuando ví que hay testigo que tienen hasta un año o seis meses sin ingresar a esta plataforma que se supone deben estar pendientes.

Por eso hice mi propia lista de testigos para votar, además pienso que todos debemos hacerlo, es más debería estar en los logros que propone @cryptokannon porque si su rol es tan importante en esta cadenas de bloques, debemos mostrar nuestro apoyo porque esto beneficia a esta plataforma.

Nothing better than doing your things manually AND not giving another authority to do something simple like vote for your witnesses. When I was reviewing who to vote for, I realized that some witnesses who are well positioned among the twenty have a negative reputation, that caught my attention and it must be that we vote with closed eyes Without checking who they are, much less since when they have not entered the Steemit platform.

When I saw that there are witnesses who have up to a year or six months without entering this platform that are supposed to be pending.

That is why I made my own list of witnesses to vote, I also think that we should all do it, it should be more in the achievements that @cryptokannon proposes because if their role is so important in this blockchain, we must show our support because this benefits this platform.

very good post my friend has upvoted your post and also shared it 🙏👋😁

Wow I am new here

This is a crucial security warning, thank you. I appreciate that you linked to a similar auto voting service, for the benefit of those who still want that functionality, even if you don’t personally recommend such a a service.

Thank you for information...

Thanks for the advice and reminder @jayplayco," appreciate it. Thankfully, I went through my authorizations some months back, and currently Actifit is the only one allowed.

thanks for letting us know

Omg thanks for this, been looking for a way to do this and I just did it for a bunch of services.. thanks

Yo lo hice de manera manual, es muy sencillo y no es necesario usar una servidor para eso, yo publique en la comunidad de Nursery una guía de PRINCIPIANTES para Que hagan su voto propio voto de testigos

Very good post

I just came back to Steem and saw that all witness I had voted for were inactive, removed my vote from all of them, now begins a journey to find new witnesses to vote for

can this be dangerous for the security of our Steemit account?

As long as the Posting Auth is given, it is possible that upvoting, downvoting and posting is possible. Additionally any 3rd party service that would allow sending value with posting keys could be compromised also.

This information is very useful, thank you for reminding.

Not revoking Auth but changing password is the function the same as revoking Auth?

Nope, if you change only your password, the auth is still given.

Never used...and nobody must use 3rd party apps like this...everything must be organic in traffic

🏃‍♀️🏃‍♀️🏃‍♀️ A correr se ha dicho

Thanks for this .

What happened? Do we need to change password or anything else?

Just remove your auth from the account.

jayplayco, what is the automation service web address, can you help me? Thanks,

Thanks, I will keep in mind!

Thanks😊
