Bitshares openledger wallet hacked??
« on: January 07, 2018, 09:38:59 pm »
Hallo everybody

Today I had a strange experience! It goes like this: I logged in to my wallet in order to deposit some bitcoins. It ask me to generate a new bitcoin address. I did that. Then I had some bitcoin send to that address. So far so good. But they did not turn up. (I dobblechecked the address, it was correct)I then checked the transaction, and now it becomes strange! See for yourself:

https://blockchain.info/address/1FxPCi7XCZAycWZKrwNkSYotkHCfqjrHuH

Notice the red arrow abow the green arrow!

It says that the delivery to my bitcoin address was confirmed, and the about an hour later the bitcoin was send on from that same address to another bitcoin address! I did not do that! So my question is: Was my wallet hacked? Did someone make it generate his own address? Any suggestions or ideas on what went wrong? I should point out that my wallet does not even show any signs of that bitcoin arriving to it, as if the trick was actually done somewhere outside the wallet. I really appreciate your input on this, and would like to hear if anyone else have experienced similar.

From the transaction, it looks like 1FxPCi7XCZAycWZKrwNkSYotkHCfqjrHuH is your deposit address. Is that right? Openledger owns that address, not you. Once you sent BTC to it, Openledger moved it to another one of the addresses that they own -- this is pretty much what any exchange does when you send in a deposit.

Have you received your OPEN.BTC yet?

Mr. Biofil, thank you so much for your reply! I had no idea that things worked this way:) Happy to say that they did turn up more than 40 hours later!
