Over the past several weeks Dogecoin skyrocketed continuously daily, but look like now the fun is over as it started to slip down slowly. At the same time Bitcoin isn’t doing too well either.
Bitcoin has been hurting and it’s not going anywhere for a great while now, it’s dead at 230s. Well folks, that’s what Dogecoin people been saying also, but look all of a sudden Dogecoin rise for 2-3 consecutive weeks from 20-30 to 80-90 within 3 weeks or. It could happen to Bitcoin although it already had. Hold on to your Bitcoin, or buy your Bitcoin now and wait for the rise again. Many people said that Bitcoin was never meant to even go to $100 so soon, but $1000 is a bubble or pump as some might say.
So what’s next? well just like any other cryptocoins, waiting for the pump, we don’t know for how long, but it will be awesome and we don’t know how long is the awesome time either, it could be hours to weeks or months.
Many of us has been using yahoo email for a long time and chances are you don’t want to use another email like gmail and so on. What can you do to secure your email, prevent hackers from stealing your account, and even if hacker know your password, they would not be able to login unless they have your phone also. Your phone is the extra security where if your yahoo mail account is signed on to another location, before it can be fully open, you will get a text message on your cell phone letting you know the code to enter when you sign on to an additional location.
So activate your yahoo mail “two-step verification for your Yahoo account”
It’s easy. Go to your account security setting and you will be asked.
Apparently it is true that Perk TV flag each account for defects, the more defects you have the chances of your rewards get cancelled or account banned. Defects such as watching the same video on multiple videos, you know you can’t be watching all five devices at the same time can you? isn’t call cheating or taking advantage to get more points?
Every so often or once in a while, Perk TV will also do an audit system check such as checking your address location versus your IP location, and if the location of your devices address don’t match then your reward cancelled and eventually banned if you cannot provide Government issued ID.
Perk does a lot of flagging and auditing. If any defects for sure your account will be in trouble.
Always upgrade to the latest version of Perk TV android. At least the 2nd to latest version, otherwise you will not earn points, let alone App may not work correctly, although some people think otherwise. Some say that after they upgraded the Perk TV app, they lost points, phone kept on crashing or too slow. If that’s the case, you can stick with the 2nd to latest app, because normally latest version have bugs.
I’ve been doing perk tv for sometime, and one thing I can you are:
- Perk TV app very intrusive, they have access basically to your phone for almost everything, where you’re at, what’s your phone identity, and so on and so forth.
- The points you earned are getting reduced frequently, from 10 to 7 to 5 to 3 now to 1-3 but normally 1 now a day as of May 2015
- Some videos freeze and it’s not phone’s fault, rather Perk TV server perhaps or maybe your ISP latency problem with Perk server
- Reboot your phone once a while
- Last but not least, once you Perk TV on that phone, chances are your phone quality reliability will get reduced, so highly recommend not to run Perk if you love and use your phone daily for your daily business.
As of May 2015, with 5 phones, and frequent check to touch on “yes” you’re still watching, you will be earning maybe $10 a week$40 or $40 a month, gas money or beer money indeed. No, you should not use multiple static IP because Perk TV App can detect and ding you for it. Multiple ISP yes, should be ok. Block of static IP provided by your ISP is under the same gateway, Perk TV app can detect it. Your typical gateway router would say 192.168.1.1, but block of static IP is under the same gateway IP 18.104.22.168 or something like that.
The answer is yes.
Perk TV app for android specifically giving Perk a lot of access to your phone, and no doubt it can ping nslookup and other network tools program to check your network configuration.
So let say if you have Verizon Fios Static IP, and you purchased a block of 13 staticIPs. You have 13 computers and assign a unique static IP to each computer, and you go online to google search IP, or myip, or ipchicken to see your internet IP, it does show unique IP, so you’re good right? WRONG! to the naked eye, meaning if you run a server and someone access your server you will see their IP and certainly you can do ping, nslookup, dns so on and so fourth it will show you those detail. However what you don’t see would be the IP belong or in the same gateway or ONT verizon fios box. Perk TV can see this, because Perk TV app have access to your network through Perk App and check scan your internet network because you allow it access on your android devices.
Knowing that you download and install Perk App, you agreed that PERK TV app have access to your android devices fully. Perk TV app can run certain program remotely to check your phone ID, location, IP address, internet network gateway DNS lookup and it can determine if any other IP associated to this static IP. So let say your ISP verizon fios gave a block of static IP 22.214.171.124 to 126.96.36.199, 2 DNS IP, but only 1 gateway IP. The gateway IP is the key, Perk APP will detect this gateway same IP combination with the DNS to determine your IP belong to the same ONT box. Sure you can say that well you live in apartment building where it’s under 1 ONT box with 13 resident, therefore 13 IP per resident, good luck with that. Perk TV is iffy when it come to violation of services, whatever explanation you have, off course it’s true, but Perk TV can ignore your message, and await for your Government Issued ID. Don’t send government issued id to anyone other financial services.
The recovery process takes so much time. It is due to the fact that synchronizing with the multidoge server takes time for each wallet, can’t just do all at once.
Here are some some tips on safeguarding your Dogecoin wallet even if it get hacked or stolen by someone.
- Add password to all wallets. Write the password on a piece of paper posted somewhere you can find it or simply some password that you remember for sure if you get brain injured 🙂
- Back up your *.wallet file. This is the least you should do is back it up. Optional if you want to export your private key, it’s simply use to recover your coins from chain, meaning even if you use multidoge, or whatever wallet clients, the private key file allow you to retrieve your coin despite whatever wallet programs you’re using, but I didn’t use private key thingie.
- Step 2 above, copy to your USB and CD/DVD ROM, burn a copy of it and keep it safe.
Doing the above steps, in the event that your computer is broken, and even if you wallet get hacked, you should still be able to retrieve your coins in the case the hackers would required a large amount of time and bruteforce to crack your wallet password. Could take them days even weeks months years for a very long difficult password to get cracked. However if you noticed or know your computer been compromised especially your wallet file has been stolen uploaded, then you should move your coins out of that wallet to a new one and repeat above steps.
I’m still struggling trying to find out how my Teamviewer master account got hacked, is it an insider job at Teamviewer? Teamviewer server got compromised? or was it carelessness at my end.
First I don’t think Teamviewer is built to have holes for hackers to exploit and hack. I believe Teamviewer is still safe to use with caution. From my experience, use the following guidelines.
- Do not allow unattended access
- Do not auto start Teamviewer
- Do not leave Teamviewer unattended, meaning turn it on and never leave your eye off of it. Turn it off when you need to be away.
- Always have more than one antivirus programs running live scan. recommendation Malwarebytes and another one like mcafee.
With above guideline, I don’t see how anyone can access your computer without your permission? agree?
This is in continuing update of my Teamviewer account got hacked.
Consolidating Dogecoin Wallets into one.
Over the past few months or a year or so. I’ve been mining Dogecoin here and there. Got scammed here and there with Dogecoin. At the moment I found out that I have many different Dogecoin wallets, maybe 100 dogecoin wallets perhaps scattered all over on different computers and even on online back up services websites such as google and dropbox. So what I need to do now is to consolidate them, and hopefully it didn’t get emptied by a hacker last night hacked my teamviewer.
Many computer savvy people I talked to earlier today in chat room and forum. They told me that they considered that hacker whom hacked my teamviewer account isn’t a hacker, rather a script kiddies or someone just lucky enough to have been monitoring my network activities and I made a mistake disclosing my Teamviewer accoutn somehow, maybe through keylogger some sort, and boom now the hacker have my account. Again, not a real hacker in this case. A real hacker by definition must know how to write codes, and exploit, not script kiddies. In any case, I got hacked 🙂
So how I clean my dogecoins wallets and combined into one?
First Open one wallet at a time, in this case I have and use Multidoge. I open one at a time, let it synched to the network 100% completed. Copy and paste the wallet address to dogechain website to compare the balance. Once balance matched. I went ahead and transferred to my master dogecoin wallet on another computer which can be taken offline any time, in fact I take it off line when done. Now if you have a different balance showing on dogecoinwallet (multidoge) then the balance showing up in dogechain then you need to reset block chain, or you can try to move the balance showing up on the dogechain instead of the wallet client multidoge, it may work. This is to ensure you move your complete balance accurately.
It’s also a good idea when you compelted consolidating your dogecoin wallet, it’s best to do check and balances ensure what you moved match with the final balance on new one wallet.
Once done, change password, back it up, encrypt it, store it away. Ensure the computer is free of viruses also.
OK here’s an update. I just got a chance to take a look at the last computer that hacker got into via teamview. I checked the log, and there wasn’t a Teamviewer ID, so for sure the hacker was able to hack my master account password to teamviewer. Then uses the teamview account login name password to get into all the computer listed in my account in a flash.
The teamviewer log from the last computer hacker got into indicated that there was no other teamviewer ID than my master ID that got in. So apparently the hacker somehow was able to get a hold of my teamview master account. I have all my Teamview program uninstalled and probably will reinstall it for now, unless I feel the need for it and probably will take extra precaution, meaning strong password and do not ever use unattended login session, and once done, always exit out of Teamviewer.
At the moment, what I’m doing is retrieve all my dogecoin wallet and send it to one dogecoin account, and perhaps to cryptsy since I have a verified account with cryptsy, then convert it to BTC once all moved to there. Once I converted to BTC, I will move it to my local computer and back it up to a DVD ROM, USB, and an encrypted online storage, off course multiple encryption secure. Once done, I will delete it off the local computer. Then once Bitcoin up in the 1000s I can retrieve it back, it’s a good idea to check up your backup once in a while like monthly just to be sure it’s still good.
Stay tuned, I will have more update on this adventure of life after getting Teamviewer account hacked.
Just late last night, about 1AM Eastern Time USA (Pennsylvania), as I walked down the stair way at home. I noticed the media computer in the living started blinking. I came closer and took a look. Someone is controlling it through team viewer. The person whom controlling it opened my %appdata% folder and also opened a zip file of multidoge and multibit, these are Bitcoin wallets. Now I know it’s not just a regular hacker, but a hacker aim to find cyptocurrencies wallet to hack. I immediately ended the team viewer session on that computer and scrambled to shut down all teamviewer on my network home computers. All teamviewer sessions ended. I did not get a chance to check for the hacker’s teamviewer or ID or if that’s the way I got hacked, or could be he got my teamviewer account login email / password.
My first concert was for my Bitcoin wallet. I went ahead and recovered the back, and sent all the Bitcoin to a new wallet. Backed up and encrypted my new wallet again.
Then second concern is all my login name password online account could be compromised. So I changed all account password to all the frequent websites that I go to daily.
It go so late, I think I got all the necessary data backed up, and jumped to bed like 30 minutes later, I though I would be up all night, but I didn’t it was pretty quick. I didn’t think much about it since I got my bitcoin backed up, and slept through til 730am and now up, continuing to check all my computers, will surely change all password, and thinking of encrypting my whole hard drive. Stay tuned, will have more update.
