I am trying to wrap my head around compumatrix moving funds for users. Having the OPTION for Installing permissioned keys to wallets isn't a bad idea for a solid exchange with identity verifications and appropriate security, but if this is a shady application of that service we should aim to reduce these instances.

This didn't happen till the new update came out with the ability to use password and username to get into accounts...I'm not a programmer but this is obviously connected (in my mind anyway) as we had NO problems like this since the time we joined over a year ago....I'm not debating and I still love the Bitshares DAX.  I prefer this site over others I have been on hands down.

pc we DID see that transaction while investigating, hence, we began to figure out what happened. the hacker DID obviously exploit the permissions of compumatrix1.  and as I said, setting permissions was done to help protect the members from the beginning and turned out to be not a good idea..hindsight again proves to be clearer than foresight....they have all been removed now. A lesson well learned BUT blaming and insinuating compumatrix1 to be a "scammer or a thief" is not fair.

I think we can agree we want this ecosystem to grow and prosper...THAT is good for all of us. and it would be great if we could all be supportive of each other .....

It appears the issue has been fixed and for that we are very grateful...we are ready to move on and put this behind us...
I feel you.

To prevent future damage, please change password/active key of compumatrix1 from a secure wallet as soon as possible (may perhaps cause some function disabled on your website, so best make an announcement), then check your logs and audit your website to find out the hole.

This whole episode has been very educational.

Hopefully others can learn from it.

it's better to view every single web wallet provider as centralized wallet instead of 100% pure decentralized secure wallet .

Light wallet is the least safe bet for significant funds while web wallet is for small funds .

Everyone read this

This is the biggest Compumatrix thread on the Internet with the most information, so I am going to put this here.

Ok, so it seems like every year Compumatrix is just Trick-Or-Treating their members for Halloween, and saying "Maybe you'll get a treat... Oops, nope, it was another Trick... But Christmas, just wait... Just a little longer" then before you know it is is October again and it is another Trick.


If you are a Compumatrix user, and want to be part of something created a by a Compumatrix user who is tired of Henry James and his bullshit (like many are, I know many, many people have left Compumatrix over the years, and there are people who told me I was stupid for thinking it was going to work this year after last year).

And I actually still trusted them. Until today. I made my own currency, and suggested to everyone that when my coin gains value, I can use my coin to raise the price of Compuceeds for everyone, and Gail was acting like I was an enemy because I made a coin.

So if anyone is looking to leave Compumatrix for something better, somethin that is actually going to work, because it has real currencies involved, not just Bitshares Assets (we will also make Bitshares assets, and Ethereum Tokens, and are looking at making our own version of the Graphene Blockchain, which is what makes Bitshares and Steemit work), then Join Temple Coin
