Some guy on 4chan claims he has access to ~22k private keys from his wallet generating website. Could be BS but worth sharing:

Wow. Pretty lucky for him and pretty happy i did not use such a thing. I think over time we will see a lot more services that have forgotten about their coins.

We still don't know if these is legit man, but whoever seen these neither replied or quoted your post are searching now. And either way, the are still no reports about hacked bitcoin wallet or someone getting their bitcoins sent. This is fake man, There are many people who actually claimed these, many people that creates a code to generate private keys, but no one is still successful.

What ever you are telling is that you have created the wallet but now you have got 22k users wallet details with private keys. Now you are in confusion that whether to scam all the wallet and collect all btc left in this exchanges. If i was in that situation i will not try to steal and better delete this log and inform this users to move their coins to other secure wallet.

This being true or not, it's a lesson for anyone looking to address any of those websites take more care while doing this.

For anyone wanting to use a address generator online: always use a known and trusted site (preferably https://www.bitaddress.org/) and always TURN OFF YOUR INTERNET before generating any address. That way you won't be in the danger zone.

And even if this guy is lying, I do not doubt that there are sites like this who has some option to log all address generated, especially those that generate the address on a server (eg: bitcoinvanitygen.com) and not on the user's browser.

The OP sid not created a bitcoin wallet nor holding 22K wallets with their private key, he posted someone on 4chan who is claiming that he made an bitcoin generator, sadly it didn't work out on it's year but in 2014 it started to downloaded and making a traffic to it's server. The op is just giving us a warning, though we don't know if these is true, hope it is not.

It's just a hoax, and nothing more. Other than that, now it's likely fake, but the scenario of this to happen is realistic. It just points out that people should never ever use an online service to generate wallet addresses for whatever purpose. If you aren't the sole entity that creates the keys, then consider them compromised.

It's hard to generate priv keys without using any service. Key thing is to make sure that generation is truly random and not rigged + do it off line.

Hopefully the story is fake, but if in near future people start to report missing btc, it will be easier to connect the dots and possibly trace the thief.

It's hard to generate priv keys without using any service. Key thing is to make sure that generation is truly random and not rigged + do it off line.

In easy terms, you need Bitcoin Core to start up, from which it directly creates a fresh wallet.dat file, where after that you can generate an address that you want to be your cold wallet address, or just a temporary address -- that easy it is, no service needed. If you want to extract the private keys from your wallet.dat file, you head over to the console and fill in the right commands.

1. Launch your bitcoin client
2. Click on 'help' in the menu bar (top right)
3. Click on 'debug window'
4. Select the 'console' tab
5. If your wallet is protected by a passphrase (i.e you have to enter a passphrase before you can send) unlock it by typing: walletpassphrase "your walletpassphrase here" 600
dumpprivkey [your Bitcoin address here]

* This will return the private key which will start with the number 5
* Once you have your private key if you had to unlock your wallet you can relock it by exiting or typing: walletlock

He might be using a power computer which is not yet known to humans to crack everything,it is just a prank or someone boosting his trash find somewhere,i bet the user is a newbie and i would not care anything about these fake stories as i have seen many during my stay here. Smiley

If true, than the decision is easy, go with what makes you and anyone else in that position sleep well at night. If the site is still used, it might be easy to contact with all the users and tell them to move their coins asap, no?

Anyways, seems unlikely. Such a site unattended? people using it without seeing it being updated?

I think he is pointing like a website to generate bitcoin address i saw this site before that you can generate bitcoin wallet instantly without any private keys. .
Its really not good idea to save your bitcoin in those service because you cant save the private keys so its not safe.. if the site gone your bitcoin will gone too..

one thing that i always find stupid about these posts like the screenshot OP shared is that why are they even telling the public about it! if they were to scam and really had private keys and ability to steal the coins of those who used that website, then he wouldn't have shared it in public, he would have just emptied the wallets and then shared and laughed about it!

Well, this sounds a little bit interesting but if he really got those data and access as well as the desire to scam all of those in that list then he won't be sharing that info anywhere. He can just be bluffing or joking though just to generate some interest to his post.

Whatever it is, this is a red flag for all of us to be always careful with the wallet we are creating so we will not be victimized by people whose reputation can be so low and is boosted by the fact that he can be doing things just online and can be hard to tracked by ordinary guys like us.

I think it is just a hoax because right now there are no reports saying that many people lost btc because if this is true I'm sure by now there will be some cases of lost btc. If something where to happen though and if this is real, then the man who posted the post in the picture might be the culprit. Thanks for the warning though OP.

I think this is just another made up story and bullshit. He just needs some attention and he might want to increase traffic to his website. There are some websites which displays bitcoin address & private key pairs but none of those address contain any bitcoin or none of them have ever received any single bitcoin in past.

Totally going to be a ton of bullshit, if someone had access to this and it was someone who was reputable and actually had some sort of backing then the entire bitcoin community would be in shambles right now, so this threat isn't anything to be worried about and I'd just simply ignore it.

Thanks for trying though I suppose. It's better to be safe than sorry.

This is a very good example of human nature: "If I have the opportunity, I will scam."
It's never "If I have the opportunity, I will help."

Human race is worse than animals.

It's human greed, if you had the same opportunity you would do it as well.
