Wow what’s happening here? Suddenly it dropped very heavy and my order got filled and it even dropped much under that despite the BTC price not dropping that much. Any news?
Fluctuations in price are the charisma of digital currency, cheers for your successful buy-in, and I keep it in the car

Is the reclaiming process still ongoin? I have reclaimed my IOTA coins 1,5 months ago and my balance is still zero.
Could you please contact me? Are my IOTAs lost now?!?? Sad

The reclaim update thread on https://forum.helloiota.com/1242/Reclaim-Status says:

Quote
Status: All reclaims that were filed before December 24th have been processed. For those who didn't receive their reclaim, it's likely that you accidentally didn't get the final step confirmed. Please re-do the reclaim process and standby for an official announcement from the IOTA Foundation.

I'm so happy I've reloaded IOTA at $2.40! I Expect $4.50- $5.00 in February! I might sell half at $5 and keep the rest for a few months.

IOTA Attacked On January 19th, 2018 / IOTA Technology Is Secure

https://iota-news.com/iota-attack/

On January 19th, 2018, some IOTA users lost their funds to an unknown attacker. The good news: The IOTA technology is secure. The attacker did not leverage any vulnerability.

The root cause so this could happen was for users to rely on online generators to create their seeds. If you take only one thing away from this: Never, ever use online tools to generate your seeds.

The IOTA Foundation has been emphasising the importance of keeping your seed ultra secure from the very beginning.

But still, users apparently got tricked into using shady online generators.

From what I’ve heard, many users who lost their funds created their seeds at iotaseed.io (not linked here for obvious reasons). Chances are, the folks behind this and potentially other seed generators have sat tight for a while, collecting piles of seeds, though the actual numbers of users affected are not known to me. The fact, that iotaseed.io is still online at the time of this writing might suggest that the site got compromised itself, and its not the folks behind the service who ran the attack.

Yesterday night, the thieves started moving funds from the stolen seeds to their own.

In parallel, they orchestrated a distributed denial of service (DDoS) attack against many of the publicly known and popular IOTA fullnodes. In doing so, they prevented the victims from rescuing their funds. At times, you couldn’t find a single public node, to successfully log into and move your funds before the attackers could do so.

Over at IOTA.FM we run six of the most popular fullnodes. We openly publish their addresses on sites like iota.dance for users to connect with their light wallets. All of our nodes got attacked. The attackers seem to have scraped node addresses from many sources and ran a concentrated effort.

While I won’t go into the exact details of how the nodes were taken down, let me make a few remarks: The attackers did not leverage anything IOTA specific! This is super important. Because people who lost their funds might tell their friends, that IOTA is not secure, which couldn’t be more wrong......

Some good news from David Sønstebø on Discord Chanel:

''We can confirm that Johann Jungwirth, the Chief Digital Officer of Volkswagen AG is joining the IOTA Foundation. He will serve both as advisor, but also on the supervisory board where his experience and expertise will assist us in growing the IOTA Foundation into its full potential. More details to come about this relationship and other plans we have with VW to come shortly.''

the tutorials from iota used to reference a site to generate the seed (I think it was exactly that one - i don't remember for sure though). I know because it was a very big red flag for me a while back when i first bought into iota. Two way were listed to generate your seed: if you are on windows though that site, or if you are on linux you could use /dev/random. Luckily I'm running bash on windows so I did it the right way. Most people probably didn't. Not very user friendly. The wallet should have generated these. So I would put the hack on the mistakes of IOTA foundation, not the users.

Also, while there was no particular vulnerability in the protocol of fault here, it does show the architecture it's self that relies on light wallets is vulnerable. And it's a huge problem. A lone hacker was able to bring the network down easily. In other coins this doesn't happen because wallets either connect peer to peer or there is a big incentive to run a full node. The protocol will need to be upgraded to combat this problem or else iota will fail.

I've screwed up a little buying too soon. I mostly switched some of other coins to IOTA and also bought some with FIAT...100MIOTAs to be exact for around 4$

For the ones I bought with other coins I don't bother much, since all currencies went down since correction. Bot the other few I bought with FIAT I'm quite sat to lose the money. I hope IOTA will go up soon.

It depends on what software you were using. Some scamming software only can generate seeds From a set of limited seeds which the scammers know. In that case you are not safe.

I would rather just randomly hit the key board like a monkey to generate 81 random letters  and I may randomly replace 3 to 5 letters with 9 if I like.

Guys, not sure where to post this. But I have a transaction that has been attached 40 times already. I sent from coinfalcon to Binance.
This is the latest retry:
https://thetangle.org/transaction/NAFYTTOTKQIJVEOSZPXZRQBO9ZBGGGPBLDTPDMUAHQOQ9DVENB9JDXEOTRZEIPVPMPZLDRTCTWFZ99999

it has already more than 2 children - from my understanding that should be the number of confirmations. So I don't understand what is happening and what I should do to solve this. I already tried reattaching, promoting, nothing seems to work. It's been 10 days now that I sent those 7000 Miota. Not a small amount.

Does anybody know what I should do or what is happening ?

(I tried posting in iota reddit support forum, but my posts keep being automatically deleted.)

No, you have to find a working node or set one up.

I have question regarding the reclaim process: I have completed all steps, but balances are still 0.

What can I do? I read about that I can create many addresses. Will that help?

I have also submitted an old and a new seed during the reclaim process. The balance should appear in my wallet after I log in with the new seed, right?

Okay Thanks, i saw a transaction for 0 that was not authorized by me and also seen the same issue with 3 other seeds i created with mouse they also sent 0 iota one account sent 0 3 times.  i thought 0 was defualt for all or something.  my wallet is locked due to
ERROR: PRIVATE KEY REUSE DETECTED!

You are attempting to sign a transaction with input that have an already been used. IOTA uses Winternitz one-time signature (W-OTS) scheme, due to it's `one-time` nature, the security of funds in an address decreases rapidly if you re-sign new transactions using the same key. Please wait for previous transaction to confirm, e.g. by promoting/reattaching, before sending another transaction

But my funds should still be safe right Huh
