Sounds to me like you're fudding to try to drive the price down.

Sounds like to me you have no clue what you're talking about because he's not wrong.

we are not doing a rollback and we are preparing a fork to patch this up.

Sorry to mess up this thread and topic a bit, but after i do not get for hours an answer on twitter, neither does the email function on the Verge homepage work, nor does someone respond on the Verge Bitcoin thread i have to try my luck here.

I visited some hours ago the official Verge Twitter profil to read the news about the hash hack. While reading the tweed i noticed several messages offering a compensation for the attack by Verge. Send x Eth and you get some bonus back. Sounded legit to me as it was affilated to the hash attack and i suffered from it as well having had some hours only orphaned blocks on all my baikals, hence i fall victim to this damn scam on the official twitter page.

Now, while i have myself for sure some vault for this i'am seriously angry about how on the official verge twitter page 100s of scams and fake messages that say they got the ETH back are tolerated and nobody cares about it?!?! How is this possible. After i realized i got scammed i even made a post in this tweet that its a scam and to remove it asap, nothing happened and people still fall after that scam. Only on that scam by now 12+ Eth have been transfered the last hours. .

Damn, i'am not a twitter guy and very rarely use it, but from an official Verge twitter profil i personal await its clean and at very least if this for some reason is not possible that there are warning messages about these scams!!!! But no, nothing, the whole official Verge Twitter profil is FULL of scams that are tolerated and people like me, fall victims to it. Fine, i lost some 1.8 ETH, but hourly these scams seems to collect a huge amount of ETH that way and nobody there at Verge cares?

Seriously, so far i wondered about the twitter decision to ban crypto, but i begin to understand the decision. They must get shitload of complains from victims like me.....

And what makes me even more angry ... no response:
- Messaged some hours ago verge on twitter .... nothing, scams are staying and getting more and more
- Put a tweet on the Verge tweet to remove the scams .... nothing, scams are just staying there
- posted in the official bitcointalk Verge thread, nothing ......
- tried to email Verge about the ongoing scams .... email function on the homepage isn't even working, it just loads forever. And after 5 attempts to load it still loads after 2 hours, lol.

I'am writting this as a XVG miner and lover, but this all makes me really sad and angry .....

Sorry to say, but this has been a huge problem for some time. Bots post on every single crypto profile with the same exact scam, people probably ignored you because they thought you were joking about it, since people literally joke about getting ripped off by these scammers,,, because we have seen it literally every post for months. Im very sorry for your loss sir, but you cant go placeing blame on others

I'am well aware of my own vault and in my 25 years internet career its the first time i got scammed. (Seems its never too late, lol).
BUT, i see the vault has well partly at others. For example why is there no delete button for the profil owner/user to delete such scam messages. This, in my opinon, opens just all doors for such scams. Second, if a given person/company is aware of such nonstop scam activity, the very least they can do is to set a huge warning banner/message above all other things.

And again, i would have been fully on alert if this was any random side/forum/advert/whatever, but being on a well known official company profil/site took my guard down, hence why i ask for warning messages/banner to prevent others to fall into such scam trap and lose their money. 1.8 ETH i lost, ok, not that much, but not a bit either, but there are people that send even a lot more. The least

I just came here to say that the verge team is still full on trying to act like this is no big deal. They're acting like the issue is resolved on telegram and are banning anyone who point people to this thread. The exploit is being exploited right now...

Based on what I see from the dev postings here it's apparent that if ocminer had never brought this to everyone's attention, the XVG team would have never admitted to or disclosed what happened.

Trying to downplay and being flippant about the severity here is just pissing on XVG investors.

Yeah this x100. If it wasn't posted here, the dev would have done zilch. Didn't ocminer even approach the dev before posting here? The dev basically responded "yeah lul that's how it's intended to work"

Interesting to see, even after such scam attack, that compared to any other alt coins the price of Verge seems not to fall deeper than any other. How does this come. I would have expected Verge price drop significantly.

makes you think if they wanted attention brought to it at all? That island video really doesn't seem funny now.

Yea, I pulled my rigs off verge till things get fixed. Still looks like the exploit is happening just on a smaller scale than witnessed before.

The whole verge team is downplaying this like it's no issue at all. They don't tell them that it basically makes it a centralised currency. Not even crypto anymore.

yeah pools are still finding blocks, and this wont be an issue anymore shortly. we will be pushing an update and contacting all pool admins.

also, to clarify, this isn't a hack, it's an exploit/attack on mining, and will be resolved very soon. of course i'm calm, this happens in crypto all the time.

how much eth has been stolen this year? this is insignificant in contrast.

Kinda off topic - Really hurts seeing all those dudes on the new Verge Tweet getting scammed by those "Send me ETH and I'll send you more ETH back" scams.
Wonder how many people get burned off crypto due to those kind of scams.

Well eth has a real use case and is actually valuable so that's probably why there's more time spent in figuring out exploits for it. Can you please explain why you initially wrote off ocminer when he approached you and only decided to take action after a post was made? Were you hoping that no one would hear of it?

Things like this happen every once in a while but some people think it is verge exit strategy and I hope not. Verge seems to be a good coin hopefully they recover and produce a stronger security next time.

Than in my opinion with every official announcement, statement, whatever, there should be some warning added that some 100s of scam attempts are following the tweet .... In my opinion even if the account/profil holder can not do much, like deleting these posts, at least he should be responsible for adding some preventive measures as much as he can after he is aware of these scam practices taking place every time, not?

There is a reason why people trust well know official pages/profiles more than some random pages, and this is right now exposed by these scammers while the profil/site owners do just .... nothing to protect their visitors.

Sorry, what do you mean by "fix"? You're saying he made a mistake and that what he quoted you as saying, you never said? Because he literally quoted you.

Sorry mate. This is an issue with ALL Crypto's on Twitter.
Also you need to do your own due diligence with this kind of stuff - Check the Twitter Handle.

I've reported numerous fake accounts and that is the only thing as users we can do.
IF someone is offering you something for nothing. It's probably too good to be true!
