Kraken latest notice “Action required: generate new deposit addresses before your next XBT or USDT deposit”
Sent: Thursday, October 26, 2017 2:05 PM
Subject: Action required: generate new deposit addresses before your next XBT or USDT deposit
Before making your next bitcoin (XBT) or tether (USDT) deposit you must create new deposit addresses. Please do this as soon as possible – as of October 30 deposits sent to old XBT or USDT addresses will be delayed and may be charged an extra service fee.
Why do I need new deposit addresses?
As part of an upgrade to our wallet infrastructure, we are phasing out our integration with BitGo. This is not in any way motivated by a concern over the quality of BitGo’s service. We are simply moving bitcoin (and tether) to an alternative system that provides similar security benefits with multi-party signing. Migrating bitcoin to the alternative wallet system will help make our infrastructure more unified and easier to manage. Please note that “BitGo Instant” withdrawals will no longer be supported as of October 30.
What if I send bitcoin (XBT) or tether (USDT) to an old deposit address?
Old XBT and USDT deposit addresses are set to expire on October 30
Before October 30 old addresses will work normally. After the addresses expire deposits will still be credited but will be delayed and may be charged an extra service fee as follows.
Expired XBT addresses starting with “1” – no service fee
Expired XBT addresses starting with “3” – 0.25% service fee
Expired USDT addresses – 0.25% service fee
Note that the service fees above apply only to deposits sent to the old XBT and USDT deposit addresses after they expire on October 30.
Do I need to generate new addresses for anything other than XBT and USDT?
No – only bitcoin (XBT) and tether (USDT) are affected by the upgrade.
How do I generate the new addresses?
The new addresses are generated in the usual way.

Navigate to Funding > Deposit > XBT (or USDT)

Look like equifax just sent out another email, apology letter, and a link to the credit alert monitoring. This is still a bad idea, they should have mention to carefully check the url website or better yet, just type in the website such as equifax.com trustedid.com and so on, instead of asking users reading the email to click on the link.
The problem is, with the email link, a hacker can send similar email and ask the user to click on it, and it will direct them to a hacker website which has exact copy of equifax trustedid site and now the users got their account compromised hacked.
Here’s the latest scam fraud stealing your ethereum coins wallet.
Notice the domain rnyetherwallet.info, the first letter you see “r” and if put close to the letter “n” to the naked eye you would probably think it’s legit myetherwallet.info but it’s not. The domain have wrong spelling of “rn” making you think it’s “m”

Yep, my freebitco.io account got hacked, but don’t care, I have nothing in there 🙂
Be careful folks, all your accounts got hacked, especially if you have crypto currencies coins.
Activate your 2FA, and never ever store your bitcoin ethereum cryptocurrencies anywhere except to your hardware wallet, ledger nano s most affordable, if not then store it to a cold offline paper wallet.

Well, better late than never I guess. After the Equifax incident, I didn’t get a chance to check to see if I was impacted til today, and I did a check through https://www.equifaxsecurity2017.com/ and look like I was among got impacted.
So I went ahead and signed up for the credit and identity monitor, it’s free and you will feel better knowing if anything changes from your credit profile or identity such as change in address or new credit card application and so on, you will get notified. I already have another identity protection still running, this will be additional, the more the better I guess.
Are you getting similar email below? it’s a fake myetherwallet website. Notice the spelling of the website myetherwallet vs. myethlerwallet notice the the additional letter “l” *ethler* vs. *ether*, it’s a replica of the real website, so be careful. The hackers now a day are targetting crypto users, so chances are some of us still have cryptos on one of the online wallet website waiting to get hacked. So the best place to store all your cryptos is hardware wallet such as ledger nano s. If you hold more than $100 worth of cryptos at the moment, it’s best to store it on a hardware wallet. The fake website is a phishing website to steal your account to steal your ethereum coins.

Due to the increasing number of phishing attacks on MyEtherWallet website,
we decided to implement Multi-Factor Authentication for all Ethereum wallets.
You must activate the Multi-Factor Authentication through a simple 3-step process.
By doing so you will drastically reduce the incidence of having your funds stolen.
Visit the link below to activate the Multi-Factor Authentication on your Ethereum wallet:
Please be aware that you will not be able to access your Ethereum wallet anymore
on MyEtherWallet without activating the Multi-Factor Authentication.
We are taking this measures to protect both you and our network from phishing and malicious attacks.
Thank you for your cooperation and understanding.
I’ve been receiving this message forever, and similar websites I signed up to also getting something similar. Someone, hackers whoever got a hold of my login name and password. Luckily these are all empty account, but still better to be safe than sorry. If you no longer use the account, then delete it or turn on 2FA, like google authenticator or Yubi key, or text sms code …

Lookup people names public records for free? yes, it is possible you can look at people’s record based on their name to get detail such as address, age, locations including previous cities the person used to live or was using the address for whatever reason. The website is whitepages.com
Yes, remember the old days many years ago, back in the 90s or 80s and prior, there used to a yellow page (business) and whitepage book? This is the digital version of the white page book that people’s name and their phone # and their address, locations, in addition with age and previous cities locations the person used to have their records recorded.
I look up my name and my wife’s name and other people I know and it show up correctly. However there are similar one showing up also. There’s also a premium record to purchase if you want to know more about the person.
I think the free version is good enough for me, just being curious on what information is out there in public about my name and where I live and so on. I’m not surprise however the premium service record might have full detail about you, I guess not so much private or confidential information about you anymore if someone really want to know more about you.
ariana grande concert terrorist attack could have been prevented
First of all, my heart goes out to all the victims and their families at Ariana Grande concert Manchester. These victims are mostly in the youth and children. I have kids of my own and I know how it’s like with your children around you daily and I can’t imagine not having them around you the next day. Rest in peace all the victims.
Now back to the question, could the attack be prevented? I think so yes. I believe their are enough security people there should have done a thorough search of everyone and I mean everyone, even the security officers people their themselves. I also believe that there a ton of security cameras to monitors activities of everyone, especially the suspicious one. Last and not least, I think it’s time to implement background check of everyone going to a concert, not just concert but maybe all events that have more than 1000 people.
I strongly believe that the world should focus more on tracking down terrorist people or study their activities this would include children to adult, in school, at home, anywhere… when you see anyone is suspicious or at risk of being a terrorist report to the terrorist hotline. To be funny a bit, government in the USA and around the world, stop picking on legitimate Bitcoin cryptos currencies users and allocate more effort, as priority, to track down terrorist at risk people and prevent such occurrences from happening again.
