Faucetgate (or Coingate?) – the hacking scandal.

Well, now that the Oscars are over and Harvey Weinstein is undergoing therapy…

BREAKING NEWS! SHOCK! DRAMA!

About 16 hours ago, Faucethub has released the following:

coinpit hacked, says Faucethub
End of the world, according to Faucethub

Coinpot did not react immediately, about four hours ago they did respond in a calm and polite tone, as we have reported earlier.

Perhaps, they only found out that they were hacked from the message on Faucethub.

A simple Google search will, of course, leave it up to the reader to decide whether Coinpot was indeed hacked or not:
Screen Shot 2018-03-09 at 11.41.41Coinpot hackedCOinpot hacked“A bunch of logins was released” is a really compelling evidence in favour of Coinpot being hacked. Most likely, at least half the users use the same password and login for both Coinpot and Faucethub.

An example of what actually happened (about a month ago):

“It appears that their (Coinpot’s) SSL certificate expired today and they have either reverted back to a self signed certificate automatically or they haven’t fully setup their new one or have not done it correctly.” – https://steemit.com/cryptocurrency/@bitcoinminer25/coinpot-hacked-whats-happening

That was reposted and made (fake)  news:

“I was way off, coinpot was not hacked. The user @vencero shared some links to coinpot and it works fine. I want to apologize for making a post that was misleading and lacked sufficient research on the topic.”

(source: https://steemit.com/cryptocurrency/@bitcoinminer25/coinpot-hacked-whats-happening)

What actually happened this time:

…some services were offline and/or not working as good as others. A simple change of browser and some cookie cleaning solved the problem for us. For the rest, the Moon Faucets, BonusBitcoin and BitFun were operating perfectly and all the balances remained up to date.

Now, if an organisation would want to hack a multicryptocurrency wallet holding a lot of coins, would it go for the coins, or for disrupting login issues to some of the faucets? The remaining question is: why did Faucethub so readily warned its users about Coinpit accounts being hacked, while every second  website featured on Faucethub faucet injects a mining script into your browser, at the very least?

We will keep you posted as more light is shed on the situation.

P  S.

We do recommend you to use individual passwords for faucets and, ideally, create a separate (secondary) e-mail address for those purposes. 2FA is not a bad idea at all either. Also, please do refer to our Helpful Tips section: pop-ups and ads can be the main source of harm to your PCs and they can be killed with fire.

P. P. S.

Faucethub has not yet been reviewed on this website, mainly because our main focus is cryptocurrency investment and trading.

Facethub is a multicurrency walet, exchange, social network, beta-test platform for faucets and a mining portal with a repulsive interface in addition to that. Faucethub is not evil and definitely has its uses, but, unlike Coinpot, it attempts to do everything while excelling at nothing.

Coinpot focuses on improving on what it is doing best. Coinpot’s recent enormous reduction in minimum Bitcoin withdrawal amount and removal of transaction fees was a customer-oriented, intelligent market move and has hardly made any of the wallet’s competition happy.

To be continued.

Message from Coinpot.co: everything is good.

A few users reported some problems with coinpot.co’s faucet partners (specifically, the enormously high-paying BitFun). We have also experienced connectivity issues between BpnusBitcoin and coinpot.co (balances were not updating).

Coinpot.co reassures that everything is under control and there is no need for concern:

coinpot has not been hacked

A good practice, however, would be changing your password and, preferably, using separate passwords for separate Faucet and other internet accounts. The security of your data is of paramount importance these days.

*Remember about the existence of LastPass-like browser extensions. Also, remember that a script that temporarily fails in one browser can work fine in another one.

Optimising your faucet activity

…is easily done with this simple trick:

Q: I keep forgetting to visit a faucet, or miss one…

A: This problem is solved very easily through your browser, or browser’s extensions. As an example, let’s take Safari, – all you have to do is to bookmark the faucets in one folder and…

New high-paying faucet

We will release a full review of Cointply bitcoin faucet (opened as Beta a couple of weeks ago) soon, however, it’s “roll” feature seems to be quite sweet: the website’s script “remembers” your Captcha choice (making SolveMedia even easier) and the rolls regularly pay out quite a bit.

In addition to a massive offerwall, mining options, daily loyalty bonus etc., Cointply seems to be a potentially serious competitor to classic faucets.
