Help Please - Account Compromised!
Dear Hive/Leofinance community,
I am writing to you with a heavy heart and in a state of desperation. My Hive account has been compromised by an unknown user, who goes by the name of @one-manul. This person has initiated the withdrawal of my HBD savings worth $53 and withdrew all high valued second layer tokens in my Hive Engine wallet (LGN, BRO and others) which has left me feeling helpless and vulnerable.
I am reaching out to the Hive community for help and support in this difficult time. If anyone has any information or advice on how to recover my funds, I would greatly appreciate it. I am a small-time content creator on the platform, and this loss of funds is a huge blow to me.
Here are some steps that I have taken so far to try and resolve the issue:
I have generated new password/keys my Hive account to prevent any future unauthorized access to my account.
I have started reporting the incidence to different users, and I am currently awaiting their response. I have provided them with all the relevant details, including the username of the person who initiated the withdrawal.
It is unfortunate that I have to go through all this even as a struggling blogger. I just wish something can be done to recover my funds, but that not withstanding, since little or nothing can be done, I just would like to take this opportunity to urge all Hive users to be vigilant and to take all necessary precautions to secure their accounts.
I don't actually know on what precautions I've skimped on, it just seems like some top level engineering attempts.
I am deeply grateful for any help and support that the Hive community can offer me at this difficult time. I am confident that with your help, I will be able bounce back on this wonderful platform.
Thank you for taking the time to read this message.
