Just want to say to those involved with this, keep the faith, I'm sure this is going to be fine in the end.

Took a while to read through this whole thread, but agree with some older users here this was a ticking time bomb.  I had my concerns here in the past as well, basically that you should never trust having your private keys stored on any service whether encrypted or not:

 

Personally I would create entirely new wallets to use and store any remaining XRP.  I know the argument that rekeying is just as secure, but IMO it's too easy for less sophisticated users to accidentally mess up the rekeying process and lose your funds again.  I would rather just create a new wallet even if it cost ~$10 to fund.

There are quite a few tools for doing this that don't try to store your keys like Gatehub does - Bithomp, Toast Wallet, my own (https://www.theworldexchange.net/).  It's unfortunately hard to find consolidated information on stuff like this for XRP.  If you just search "XRP Wallet" online, one of the first things listed is Gatehub, which isn't the same thing.  If you search Ethereum Wallet, it rightly points to MEW and other local-only tools.  IMO it really has to come from Ripple to list vetted and recommended wallets.  Not only for trust but Google's SEO probably is affected a lot by what their site links to.

I feel sorry for all of those affected by the hack.

EVERYBODY GET YOUR FUNDS OFF GATEHUB!

IT IS STILL NOT SAFE!!!!

You can write as large as you want but it's only going to be seen in this thread. 

@gatehub This message needs to be on the Gatehub homepage and emailed to all gatehub account holders, not just those you believe are affected.

:sad:  You're right.

I agree that @gatehub ought to post this on their homepage and email ALL of their account holders. This attack is still on-going and people need to be aware.

The attack is still ongoing. This is a payment from yesterday.

Yes that's what GateHub confirmed as well... they have found 18,000 potentially hacked accounts of which 5,000 had an XRP balance. This can go on for months until all 5,000 accounts are drained 😫

As long as there are possibilities for the criminal(s) to launder the stolen money, they will continue.

The question is, are really only those 18,000 accounts at risk or the others as well?

@bartopel & @krijgerxrp, zie mijn onderstaande post voor de stappen die je het beste kan ondernemen. Indien je verdere vragen hebt, neem gerust contact op. (Kan meest specifiek info voor België zelf geven gezien ik daar werkzaam ben binnen de politie).

 

Hallo,

Heb gisteren een mail gestuurd naar de lokale politie maar tot op heden nog niks gehoord.

Maybe create a small dutch-speaking subgroup or keep it English here, so other people can benefit from it...

Ik snap t wel, maar de rest....

@bartopel, gezien het verlengde weekend zal je waarschijnlijk geen reply krijgen voor dinsdagmorgen. De publiek beschikbare e-mailadressen zijn er enkel op gericht informatie te verstrekken. Gezien je slachtoffer geworden bent van informaticafraude dien je sowieso ten burele te gaan om een aangifte te kunnen doen. Dit kan niet per mail verlopen gezien je oa een verklaring dient te ondertekenen. Stuur me gerust een privebericht voor verdere informatie gezien dit een Engelstalig forum is.

English:
Bartopel, since there is a longer weekend because of a public holiday, you won't get a reply to your e-mail before Tuesday morning. The mailaddresses know to the public are just for providing information. Since you are a victim of ICT-fraud, you have to go to the office in person and file a complaint. You can't file your report by mail since you have to sign a declaration. Send me a DM for further information since the language here is English.

Can someone participating in the recovery efforts contact this individual? 

@Kevjunior17 A lot of people are gathering here. Good luck. 

This doesn't seem to be related to this heist though, sorry.

I just checked up, and it appears to be non-related to the Gatehub attack. Still tragic though!
