I would agree that I don't think this is anything malicious on kenzawak's part, and I don't think he is actively trying to scam anyone. Approaching a DT1 member who runs a tight ship when it comes to their loan service with a fake signed message seems like an extraordinarily stupid thing to do for the real owner of the account.

Either way you look at it, however, it raises concerns. Either he was planning something malicious, or his security practices are so terrible he was hacked twice in a matter of weeks. Given that, I have also excluded him from my trust network.

Sad to see kenzawak got hacked. It's very unfortunate. I hope he gets the account back soon.

I removed him from my trust list and left a tag for him however I will reverse both once he get his account back.

Good luck kenzawak.

It's an extraordinary claim that he was hacked (or "hacked") twice.

Just to clarify... I'm not trying to accuse kenzawak with that flippant remark but you gotta admit that every new hack raises the possibility of this being quote-hack-unquote exponentially, given how easy it is to get away with it and how you would expect any typical paranoid bitcoiner to react to a real hack (factor reset the phone, reformat hard drive, etc).

seems like an extraordinarily stupid thing to do for the real owner of the account.

Only mildly stupid if you have plausible deniability.

Anyway, I would agree that the likelihood of this being a ruse is low albeit non zero, but regardless of that - think about this when you're considering negs/flags/exclusions: what would you do if kenzawak contacts you with a trade deal? And then imagine someone who hasn't seen this thread in that position.

Don't mean to derail this thread, but how come he gets to have someone flag his hacked account, yet when my account was hacked nobody gave a shit. The worst part is that the guy who hacked my account is still using it (awesome31312) and it's so obvious he hacked it because the hacker speaks a different language. Also, the "hack" was really a vulnerability on Bitcointalk which allowed him to change the email of my account and use it like he owned it, all while not sending me an email notification. What a shitty forum.

Kenzawak's account is being red-tagged because it attempted a scam, plus the real owner signed a message. As far as I can see you couldn't prove ownership of your hacked account but I might be wrong. Did you try the recovery procedure: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=5089777.0

Hey, you're right. You did help me out when nobody else gave a shit. I really appreciate it.

Good point. Nobody attempted to scam with my account, because it's just not that special to the community (I barely traded back then and even now)

Your case was totally different than kenzawak's, you were not able to sign a message from any of the previously used address on your account as I see here.

BTW, You already seem to have too many accounts operating.

You are going to know the facts of your situation better than the vast majority of the rest of us, except maybe admins who might be able to both trace activity on your old account and the ones attempting to claim ownership.  The more passage of time, the harder it might be to make the claim - but surely, I see the September 2017 change of language on the account, but it does not even matter what I say or think because admins  would have to make a determination that ownership of the account should be reverted back to you and if they have a sufficient amount and evidence with such a resolution.

Otherwise, I doubt that your broad statement suggesting that the forum is inept, corrupt, biased against some users like you, unwilling to help, etc  comes off as a bit of an overstatement that is not shown by whatever evidence that you have presented or  even our ability to figure out what attempts you have already made to get that account back...

By the way, you could at least  provide a reference to a thread or posts that you may have made to attempt to get your account back, if you believe that you have solid evidence in that direction that would also support your other accusations about the forum or some of the members here.

Edit:  I see that hacker1001101001 has also described (in his above post) some other possibly relevant issues with you and your accounts that you might have chosen not to mention earlier, too.

I had no idea how staking worked when I posted those addresses. They were all linked to my blockchain wallet, and I found out that because they were "read only", I could not stake a message with them. However, the address that starts with "12v..." was my armory wallet, and those funds I have been locked out for quite some time now, because Armory is a real bitch.

This is the only account that I use. That "accounts connected" thread was opened AFTER I had already lost my account. (My guess is that some website sold off all the hacked inactive accounts). The only proof I have is that I still use my awesome31312 gmail account. Literally any other forum would let you use your email to recover an account but it's w/e. I'm over it.

Also, I'm really sorry I brought this up again. I didn't follow the right protocol to account recovery, I admit. It was wrong of me to even post about it here.

Didn't thought I would have to re-quote this in future but this can help you in signing a message from your blockchain address.


I know that and have a more better and easy method than this to get private keys from blockchain.com. You just need to set a PassPhrase to your wallet on the blockchain.com. Put you're pass phrase on BIP 39 Mnemonic Code and you will easily get private keys to all the BTC address linked with your blockchain.com wallet and later you can sign a message with the Private Keys for sure. Hope this helps you. Wink

Fair enough, I see the hacker has used your account in shady way.

Discussing more about it would be off-topic here, so I am out. You could PM me if you need help about signing a message rather.

It's crazy that this happened to kenzawak, twice.

Also it's not just some random hacker, since I guess not every other hacker would specifically look into a bitcointalk account.
I guess this has to be targeted somehow. A normal hacker would just stick to the bank/exchange accounts and not go through the trouble of asking for loans on a forum.

You should be careful kk, someone might be aiming at you.

Same goes for everyone else on this forum tbh.

I had read somewhere that not only the bitcointalk account has been hacked but several other accounts on other websites have been hacked.

This can mean only 2 things IMHO

1 - He uses the same password on every website and he got a phishing hack

2 - He has a Keylogger/trojan on his pc

I think he got an attack by a fake site or he installed something here from the forum. (Like a random wallet or script)

It only means that since his email got banned he might be using the same email account. Which you can use to regain access to most accounts.

This is also true, I took for granted the fact of using a different e-mail for different services, especially a different e-mail for the forum in case the e-mail will be compromised.

Simple basic security measure but probably they don't use it.

Wow, thank you so much for showing me this!!

Didn't thought I would have to re-quote this in future but this can help you in signing a message from your blockchain address.

Thank you too!
