The Current Situation





This week has been very complicated for Weku, I could almost say that the most complicated it had been in its history or almost. After much mess and misunderstanding, this may be the summary of that everything happened:

Time ago, when the Weku code was private, it contained the password of the Weku servers... when it was decided to make the public code for everyone, I think they forgot that the password was there, so everyone could see it on Github .

So, someone with a lot of programming knowledge, and about Weku itself, has stolen the @chen account and started to create chaos. It seems that he has designed a bot that follows several of the most important accounts, and then flags them, and their followers as well. It has also been creating delusion, to put some users against others, taking advantage of all internal discussions on the platform we have always had. That's why I say he is someone who knows Weku well. I have some names of old skilled "criminals" that has been in Weku, but I'm not going to throw accusations without proof of them. also, it seems he could has infect Weku servers with malware...

Esta semana ha sido muy complicada para Weku, casi podría decir que la más complicada que ha tenido en su historia o casi. Después de muchas confusiones y malentendidos, este puede ser el resumen de que todo lo que ha sucedido:

Tiempo atrás, cuando el código de Weku era privado, contenía la contraseña de los servidores de Weku... cuando se decidió hacer el código público para todos, creo que olvidaron que la contraseña estaba ahí, así que todo el mundo pudo verla en Github.

Entonces, alguien con mucho conocimiento de código, y de Weku en sí, ha robado la cuenta @chen y ha empezado a crear el caos. Parece que ha diseñado un bot que sigue varias de las cuentas más importantes, y las banderea, así como a sus seguidores. También ha estado creando confusion, para poner a unos usuarios contra otros, aprovechando todas las discusiones internas en la plataforma que hemos tenido siempre. Por eso digo que es alguien buen conocedor de Weku. Tengo algunos antiguos "criminales" que han estado en Weku en mente, pero no voy a lanzar acusaciones sin pruebas. También parece que ha podido infectar con malware los servidores...

The Official Team has admitted that they cannot control the stolen account, at least for now. The account has stopped giving flags, but will probably do it again. It seems to be inactive recovering its VP. It will be 100% VP again in a few hours, as can be seen at Weku Explorer (thanks to fix the Explorer so fast). The hacker undelegated everyone that had been delegated by @chen, almost a week ago... this means that in the next 24 hours, he will recover all his Weku Power. That's 4.3 Million WP, the rain of flags on all of us will be hard. From official positions it has been said that everybody should calm, because the communities have much more WP, all together, than @chen. So they can try to help users to compensate for their losses due future flags. I think that right now, it's time to help each others.

El Equipo Oficial ha admitido que no pueden controlar la cuenta robada, al menos de momento. La cuenta ha dejado de dar banderas, pero probablemente volverá ha hacerlo. Parece que está inactiva recuperando su VP. Volverá a estar al 100% de VP en unas pocas horas, tal como se puede ver en Weku Explorer (gracias por reparar el explorador tan rápido). El Hacker undelegó a todo el mundo delagado por @chen, hace casi una semana... eso significa que en a lo largo de las siguentes 24h, recuperará todo su Weku Power. Eso son 4.3 Millones de WP, la lluvia de banderas sobre todos nosotros será dura. Desde posiciones oficiales se ha dicho que haya tranquiladad, pues la comunidades tienen mucho más WP, todas juntas, que @chen. Así que puede intentar ayudar a los usuarios para compensar sus pérdidas debido a futuras banderas. Creo que en estos momentos, es hora de ayudarnos unos a otros.


I suggest to read all these posts, to have a more detailed view of the current situation, my resume is based on them.

How I Can Help?





As I said, it is time to be all united and face this situation. I've been almost 48 hours thinking that this can be done.

I am a good investigator, although unfortunately I do not have developer knowledge, so my findings are usually slow. Luckily, @nnnarvaez is very skilled at this, and is giving all possible help and more. Despite this, I will assist in this as much as possible, according to my capabilities.

I have 1 Million Weku Power among my 3 accounts (@jotakrevs, @mazinga and @linx), and from this moment I put it at the service of Weku to help compensate for the losses of the users in the case of future flags. My daily curation is definitely stopped, to be able to help, until this crisis is overcome.

I think that if we, users with large stacks, unite, along with the official Weku accounts, it is possible. Being honest, the most fair thing would be for the Weku Team, to create an account with more power than @chen, to make a bot following their flags and giving votes to the users to compensate for the losses. But being pragmatic, until that happens (if it happens) I don't mind sacrificing my stack to help everyone. Weku has always been like a virtual home for me...

Como ya he dicho, es momento de estar todos unidos y afrontar esta situación. He estado casi 48h pensando que se puede hacer frente a esto.

Soy un buen investigador, aunque por desgracia no tengo conocimientos de desarrollador, así que mis investigaciones suelen ser lentas. Por suerte, @nnnarvaez es muy diestro en esto, y está dando toda la ayuda posible y más. Pese a ello, yudaré en esto todo lo posible, dentro de mis capacidades.

Dispongo de 1 Millón de Weku Power entre mis 3 cuentas (@jotakrevs, @mazinga y @linx), y desde este momento lo pongo a disposición de Weku para ayudar a compensar las perdidas de los usurios en el caso de futuras banderas. Mi curación diaria queda parada definitivamente, para poder para ayudar, hasta que esta crisis sea superada.

Creo que si nos unimos los usuarios con grandes stacks, junto con las cuentas oficiales en Weku, es posible. Siendo honesto, lo más justo sería que el Equipo de Weku, creara una cuenta con más poder que @chen, hiciera un bot siguiendo sus banderas y dando votos a los usuarios para compensar las perdidas. Pero siendo prágmatico, hasta que eso no suceda (si sucede) no me importa sacrificar mi stack para ayudar a todos. Weku siempre ha sido como un hogar virtual para mi...

The hacker is trying to shove the chaos and destruction... let's not give him the pleasure of accomplish it!. We have to continue working hard in Weku, as we have been doing always. Although we get some flags for him, it only means to lose some post rewards, but the people who have power as me, will help all of you!

El hacker está tratando de sembrar el caos y la destrucción... ¡no le demos elplacer de conseguirlo. Tenemos que seguir trabajando duro en Weku, como hemos hecho siempre. Aunque recibamos algunas banderas de él, sólo represanta perder algo de beneficio en los post, pero las personas que disponemos de poder ¡os vamos a ayudar!


Do you own a big stack and are willing to help? Drop a comment in my post, and we will talk!

Thank you very much for telling us in simple words what's happening. Really appreciated!!! Emoticono Thumb up pequeño.jpg

Anyway, Siatcam's main concern seems to be the malware the hacker may introduce into the servers.

·

I appreciate your support! Well, the problem about malware is even worst than be flagged... but I cannot help on that, I'm not a developer.

So my idea is try to help the people who is being flagged as I said in this post, so let's see what can we do!

I would like to reward your comment but it seems @chen flagged my last post and all the comments from people that I voted... so better I don't vote it... sigh.

I am a very small account now but I will do what I can. It may not add too much but whatever you all need I will try with what I have. If it would have not been for medical bills I would be a bigger account now. Powering up all I get as we speak!

·

Thanks for the help man! I appreciate it... uhm almost everybody has more power than you, I'm not sure if put you in the side of people who help, or people who sill need some help hehe. Thanks, we will see how we manage this.

I know right! I am working on it and it will take me some time. Those knee surgeries hit me hard in the wallet so I had to do something. There is a lot of things I regret from this last year. No use crying over spilled milk, just have to work and get it built back up again.

Lots of things I wish I could take back and have a redo in earlier times in Weku. As they say, hindsight is 20/20. As I say "Always Forward" so that is what I am trying to do. I really appreciate the help and I really hope for the best for all of us here on Weku and also the Weku platform. Maybe this was a wakeup call for people to pull their head out of the third point of contact, yes even as I am doing and trying to get things straight. LOL. Thanks!

·

Well, if people don't react to this new challenge, and pull their heads out of third point of contact, what else more is need? lol Let's hope we would able to manage this situation.

Thanks for the support man... anyway focus in recover from surgery and monetary stuff as well. "Real" life first hehe

Thank you for your article. Question - Do I need to move my Weku dollars or Weku into Weku power to protect it from the hacker, or will it be safe as is???? Thanks.

·

Oh yes, sorry I forgot mention it. Well, power it up offers an extra layer of security. If somehow the hacker would get your Active Key, he could transfer your funds to anywhere. If they are powered up, he should powerdown first, and then wait... so you would notice the problem and take action at fact.

Thanks!!!!

It's returned. A few hours ago, my Weku personal blog I wrote on this subject got wiped of earnings by him. It is like he singled me out.

·
·
·

I have been taking a look to the Weku Explorer, it seems @chen gave us 100% weight flags... I think these are -1200$ downvotes... I'm not sure how to counter such haircut...

·
·
·
·

The article I wrote was at over 800 and he wiped it out with his downvote. What can be done? What can we do to help Weku? There are good folks in this community who want to see us succeed. Blessings and thanks.

My post was near 900$, it was wiped out too.

Well, we need more big accounts helping to counter these flags. In fact some kind users offered to help on it... but we need more. I own 1 million (@jotakrevs + @linx + @mazinga)... but as @chen is following my votes, he is flagging things that I already voted with the 3 accounts... (as example, half of these 800$ from your post came from my votes)... so I cannot vote the same things again, to counter... in fact I cannot vote anybody because then, he flags them... so I cannot give any direct help sorry.

I'll try to recruit more people anyway.

Thanks to you too, have a good day.

I think that's the job of the weku team. All of us together are too weak to do anything. I'm going to be afraid to buy more Weku. Let's see if the team does anything about it. I am quite skeptical. Soon it will be Christmas and there is more important than Weku 😀. So sit back and enjoy the show.

Totally agree, their mistake, their responsibility. They should fix this... anyway I always tried to help, so thought to give some aid to flagged users. But it goes beyond my capabilities... also since I cannot vote because then, these users will be flagged... sigh. I cannot do anything.

It's a shame that while some users have been talking about how to counter @chen flags, nobody from the official side said a word.

I won't invest in Weku, unless many things change. And I'm not much optimistic about it.

Yeah, Christmas is almost here. Yule, for you right? You did a good job in the north, keeping the meaning of your traditions and wisdom, unlike happened in the south... we got christianized at 3rd Century (thanks Roman Empire...). So we lost it all.

Returning to the main topic, let's see what Weku team does with this mess...

Thanks for the support man.

I am very tempted to resubmit my wiped out post as a new one.

·
·
·

I just come back from work, I was the whole day out of home. yes... @chen came back, he flagged this post and all the people who showed me their support, like you, @steinreich, @nnnarvaez, @ambiguity and others...

My account and my curation account have a combined VP of 65K not much but I want to help the people who make very little

·

Thanks a lot! Don't worry by the amount, any help is welcome. I'm glad to see that not only big whales wants to help!

You can count on my WP to help is not lots but 300k should help.

Might I suggest we concentrate our WP in healing flags received by the smaller users we the whales don't need it as much as the little guy

·

Thank you very much! 300k are useful for sure. With you, @steinreich who offered 300k and my million, makes 1.6 Million WP... more than 1/3 of @chen stake... so yeah, 300k are helpful!

Totally agree, whales like us can help themselves... unlike the small users. You have seen my curation main line, help the good small users hehe

·
·

Yes indeed I meant it for others to understand.

I love seeing my posts in the trending but the little guy getting 60 100 weku per post needs us more.

·
·
·

Yeah it's always better make things clear to the others.

So yeah, we will help the small users who are bringing good stuff to Weku.
