Many "Create Proposal"
« on: October 03, 2019, 02:40:21 am »
Hello,

So I checked my Activity tracks, and I can see many Create Proposal... I'm sure I'm not the only one since they are coming from OpenLedger accounts such as: openledger-safety, openledger-settings, openledger-delegate, openledger-security and openledger.com-account... Probably fake accounts?

The proposals are something I've never really understood in BitShares... What are they? Why are they targeting my account? They say "Update account data for", so what is there to upgrade?

I haven't been active in the past 6 months, so I'm wondering if I missed something important or if this is just another obscure scam (like the shitcoins everybody was getting at some point...)

Any information would be appreciated.

Thank you!

It's a scam attempt. Do not click approve. If using latest client or reference web wallet, warnings should be clear

Lol! Ok, thanks!
That is a nice way to waste a bunch of BTS. Good for them!

So what are they trying to achieve? Update my account data how?

Well, that is certainly scary.. For everyone... Must have worked a bunch of times on some poor souls...
Any info on how this works? It's possible that an unrelated account propose to have added permission onto another account? That sucks and it should be ONLY the other way around... Parent accounts must be able to allow child accounts in, but child accounts should not be able to ask parent accounts to control them...

Client is updated. Says Bitshares.190424 and that an update is available, but it always says that even though I have the latest, so that is annoying. Wondering why...

Having that said, the Create Proposals are still visible in my Activity, don't see a difference with the new client. I never caught a proposal when it was still active, so that must be why.

Beside that, what can we do about those scum accounts? Support BSIP #154? BSIP #2658?

Thanks again!

Thanks!
These builds are never in the link in the UI... So I never think of them, and so probably everyone else... Either update the official website, or notify the version on the official, but don't notify for the version on Github while pointing at the version on the website.... Seems redundant.

So I can see I got the latest proposal last week, so I'm assuming there is no drawbacks of exploiting that particular threat yet... Sucks...
