Already trying there. The issue I am having is the node goes missing randomly after sometime. Just posting here also so I can get update if anyone else is having same problems and has a solution.
Just to confirm I setup a masternode sent my self a transaction of 500 kore plus transaction fee (from the same local wallet to localwallet) (9f9e048698fd7d4c01e966f0d5a6178213cdf272320dd080175173ab9ed5fdeb this is the tx id) and tried to activate through this following all the steps on the master node. I had more kore so I sent myself on this address on the same wallet I hope that doesnt make a difference.?

Hey dmz241,

If you are still having trouble i would advise you to retrace your steps and see if you forgot something or made a mistake, make sure you are using latest version of the Kore wallet on the local wallet and the masternode wallet.

Come to our support channel on discord it is easier and faster to talk over there.

Hey guys how you doing?,

Coming here to share some cool pictures from this past weekend that was child's day here on Brazil and the Silvana Lima foundation that Kore supports did something really cool with the kids and teenagers and took them out for a special day of activities and they also got some gifts, Silvana Lima foundation helps kids and teenagers on the town of Parucuru in Ceara, Brazil, they give meals, surfing classes, social actions classes and some other school oriented classes too, they do a wonderfull job and is definetely a source of inspiration to us.

Here is the pictures:









If all the coins or sucessfull persons that changed their lives with Bitcoin or Alts helped with social projects we could definitely change the world for the better.

Have a great week eveyone.

I am just posting this here so it helps someone else if they have the same problem.
What I did after this problem was happening again and again.
I pretty much started of a clean install of windows (which I had the luxury of doing)
Deleted the server (using aws)
Retraced all the steps synced all on local pc and server.
Then after waiting for full 100% on both places I started node and voilla it gave Master Node Successfully started.

Very cool this project that Silvana Lima is developing with the support of Kore.

I truly believe that this project has provided an incredible day for these children.

I think a untraceble communication would be great for Kore users since everyone here is about privacy and anonymity.

Cool share, that is one of the reasons the Kore team is working on a secure and anonymous communications app.

Freedom of thought and speech is a inalienable right of every person that unfortunately is not being respected and we need this in order to protect the jornalistic sources, whistleblowers and people´s privacy above all.

All this awesome new technologies that we have should work for protecting us not the other way around.

Have a great weekend.

Hello all! I have been very busy with a myriad of things so I'd like to apologize for that.

I'd like to start off this post by asking a question. You all know KORE projects is a security/anonymity project. However, How can you be secure if you don't know what to look for?

Don't get pwned

In this series of posts, I'm going to be teaching you what hackers look for and how to deter them as simply as possible. Here's some great news, for the most part, you do not have to worry about hackers. The people you are most likely going to encounter attempting to hack you are known as skids. Skids are Script KIDdies. These people don't know how to hack and normally don't even know the fundamentals of hacking. All they are capable of doing is using another person's tool that does all the "work" for them. Because of this, you can deter 90-95% of attempts to gain access to your system by just following basic steps and using your head. In fact, the likelihood that someone has tried to "hack" you and failed is pretty high! Skids attack weak accounts with little security, or "low hanging fruit." In this series Ill teach you how to not be in that category of easy victim and how you can bump up your security!


The first attack we will look at will be very basic, as this is an introduction to the series. In this post, we will be looking at brute forcing passwords. There are normally two forms of brute forcing recognized in the hacking community. I will be discussing a third semi-subcatagory as well.

The three options I recognize are basic brute forcing, dictionary attack and custom dictionary attack.

1) basic brute forcing
This is the attack that most people think of when they think of password security and having a longer password being better. How this attack works is the attacker sends thousands of passwords to the server/file a second. They try every possible combination and then add a digit. For example, an attacker would send a, b, c, etc...etc, until they hit z, then they would add a digit and send aa, ab, ac. This is the most basic form of brute forcing and it can find a short password very very quickly. The password "Matrix" takes less than a minute to crack on a very weak system, it would take less than ten seconds on a powerful system.

DEFENSE) For this attack I recommend long passwords with lots of special characters. Instead of Matrix, use Th3m@7R/x1ol


2) dictionary attack
This is another type of attack commonly used on accounts, this is actually the most common attack to try to gain access to accounts. With this attack, we have a file with several thousand/hundreds of thousands of passwords and we try them all. This will not cover as much ground as a basic brute force but will get more accounts in a shorter time

DEFENSE) For this attack I recommend long, unique passwords or long generated passwords.


2a) custom dictionary attack
This attack is RARELY used by anyone except experienced hackers who are targetting a specific person. This attack requires the hacker to get to know the person, what are their likes, what are their dislikes, where do they live, what do they do for work. The hacker then takes all that information and guesses possible passwords based on the victim's likes/dislikes/location/data. For example, a dog lover's password might be I<3Puppies!, the list normally includes relative's information as well. If the victim's wife is named Jessica then the hacker would gather a list of passwords including Jessica and add that list to the list with dogs and puppies. This is not an advanced attack but it requires a lot of time to get to know the victim, as such this is PROBABLY not the type of attack you have to protect against (but its a good idea to make sure you aren't vulnerable to this attack Wink )

DEFENSE) Long, multiphrase, ciphered password. Instead of Matrix, you could use a cipher and make it Zlyuen then throw in special characters.


Remember, its NOT a good idea to use the same password for multiple accounts and you should change your passwords regularly.


For advanced users who want to learn more and hack YOUR OWN accounts check out this link: https://null-byte.wonderhowto.com/how-to/hack-like-pro-crack-user-passwords-linux-system-0147164/



If there is an attack you want to learn about/deter message me on discord and I might put it in this series. Also if you notice anything incorrect/needing additional info in any of these posts, feel free to message me.

Pretty interesting and informative, thanks

On the note of "hacking our own account", I could be interested.

I got ripped of a coin from a QT wallet, due to a kind of recent malware installed inside of Ducat Coin wallet update.
This same update did a lot of damages, and even a shared MN service platform got bankrupped due to it.
Luckily, just got 1 coin stolen

On the other side, I have an issue with a qt wallet which does not recognize anymore my password which I utilised at least twice
before to send coins in...
Now, unable to unlock the wallet with this password.

My question is this one, which always thinking to the fact that I got ripped of a coin from QT wallet (CLOSED), but I have no way to recover coins from a QT wallet when I have isues with the password (pretty ironic comparison)

Which tool may I use to finally get access to my stuck coins in this wallet with password not working anymore?

If you're interested in security it's also useful to understand how truly random passwords are generated and work.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Random_number_generation

This ex is 100% not a random password. Th3m@7R/x1ol

Brute forcing software is already coded to include swapping $ for the letter s, ! for i, @ for a, etc.

Obviously if someone was trying to attack "TheMatrix" they would insert what info they know about him into the list of variations in the brute force dictionary, in my case this would ONLY be his user name. Anyone who knows what they're doing would attempt any variations of ThEmAtRiX first, assuming this is the only information they know.  

What is good about this specific password is the amount of characters it contains.  

Here you can see why adding a wider variation of characters, #$%^&*"{| and adding to the length of the password reduces your chances of being pwned  Cool

On the other side, I have an issue with a qt wallet which does not recognize anymore my password which I utilised at least twice
before to send coins in...
Now, unable to unlock the wallet with this password.

Which tool may I use to finally get access to my stuck coins in this wallet with password not working anymore?

I had a similar problem once after I used salvagewallet on a wallet. my password no longer worked. I salvaged it again and It recognized it. You can try that maybe.

If you're interested in security it's also useful to understand how truly random passwords are generated and work.

Go KORE!

The example isnt a random password, correct (though i never claimed it was!)
the BF software John does this yes, but not all do, and only for dictionary attacks. If someone WANTS to hack me they would first try anything with matrix in their dictionary then they would have to go to the basic brute force tactic (trust me it will take a looooonnngg time for that to get one of my pw though Wink )
but yes, longer is better, the more random the better. for myself i have an application i developed that is not attached to the web and generates my passwords based on specific criteria I set for each generation. I might release a basic form of it depending on how many people want it.

thank you for your support of the projects!
