Affected Users Can Now Recover Their Steemit Account

Steemit Cyber Attack Analysis Is Being Finalized

from themerkle news desk I share this news here :

The Steemit platform breach that occurred last week is still being  resolved as we speak. The operators of the platform announced a new  security announcement, as account recovery has now officially begun.  There are a few simple steps users need to take to access their old  account again. Moreover, the returning of stolen funds is coming to a  close soon as well. 

 When the Steemit platform  got hacked last week, many people were concerned about the security of  this concept. As it turns out, only a select few accounts were  compromised in the process. Thanks to swift action, the threat was  thwarted at an early stage. Stolen fundswere kept to a minimum as well, thankfully. Users who have had their accounts compromised can now begin the recovery process. There is an account recovery page,  where users can enter their old password. After logging in through  social media or the used email address, users will be granted a chance  to create a new account password. Steemit users who authenticate  through Facebook or Reddit should see their accounts restored  immediately. Those who use an email and password combination will  receive further instructions shortly after filling out the form. It is  good to see the company take additional security precautions, as new  passwords have to be at last 32 characters long.. Time to get that LastPass or other password manager working!
On the topic of users who have had  funds stolen, the Steemit team is in the process of finalizing the  analysis of the July 14th cyber attack. Figuring out how much funds has  been stolen from each account has taken some time, but the final numbers  will be coming in shortly. As promised earlier, the platform operators  will refund every user out of their own pocket. Incidents like these are bound to  happen when platforms become incredibly popular in such a short  timespan. Luckily for Steemit, there was no real harm done, albeit the  financial losses and compromised accounts should not be taken lightly.  With these new security measures in place, business can be resumed as  normal.

Yesterday at  Google’s I/O developers conference , CEO Sundar Pichai briefly spoke about a custom-built chip that helps give Google its edge in machine learning and artificial intelligence. The chip, dubbed a TPU or Tensor Processing Unit (in keeping with  Google's A.I. platform TensorFlow ), is specifically wrought for running Google’s decision-making algorithms.  Most companies like Facebook and Microsoft use GPUs  for their machine learning and artificial intelligence.But Pichai’s speech and the  accompanying blog post  only reveal a few details about TPUs. About the only useful thing we know about the chip is that it’s an ASIC, or application-specific integrated circuit. ASIC chips aren’t bought off the shelves, but designed specifically to do one task very well without using a lot of power. They’re used in applications that never change, like the controlling how a phone battery charges. .............................. [ read full story ] Tags :   Bitcoin, Business,

Visiting deep inside the Sundarbans & spent days with Bawali - Episode #06

In the last October-November I visited Sundarbans, the world's one of the largest mangrove forest. It was also declared as world heritage site by UNESCO in 1997. In this forest a numerous wildlife species exist - birds, reptiles, fishes, amphibians and also the king of the forest "Royal Bengal Tiger". The ganges dolphins & crocodiles are also living in the canals of Sundarbans. Chital is a one kind of spotted deer living in this forest. The rural life in the area of this coastal forest is also very attractive. They basically maintain their lives by collecting honey, woods and fishes. In the native language they are called as Bawali. I spent some days with them. Here I share some of my tour photographs of Sundarbans and Bawali -- Time to land ..... preparing to go deep inside the jungle After landing on the bank of the canal....... in the forest Camera : SONY Model : DSC-W710 Location : Sundarbans, West Bengal, India Snap Taken : 03 Nov 2017 To Be Continued.

Ancient alligators which had long legs and run faster than dinosaurs, also ate them

image credit Imagine an alligator with long four legs and runs faster than dogs. Am I crazy ? Probably not. But, this species is now extinct. They lived in the Jurassic Period. The name this amazing creature is Galloping crocodile. It existed 100 million years ago. And also they preyed on dinosaurs!  The most attractive features of Galloping crocodiles are their bone structure. After made research on their bones structure scientists said that they were efficient swimmers but that when they clambered ashore they were also capable of galloping across the plains. But, modern crocodiles crawl on their bellies because their legs sprawl out to the side.  The fossils of this primitive crocodiles are now discovered in North Africa by a group of fossil hunters. Most of the fossils was discovered in the year of 2001.  Hans Larsson , a paleontologist at the University of Montreal, who took part in the expedition which was sponsored by National Geographic, wrote -  "We were surpr

A short article on "flying dinosaurs"

image credit We are all familiar to Pterodactyl, the flying dinosaur. But, actually there existed so many flying dinosaurs. The common name of all this “flying dinosaurs” is Pterosaurs. There are about 130 genus of Pterosaurs existed in the jurassic period. Here I listed some of them — 1. Pterodactyl The Pterodactyls had a couple of very wide wings up to 40 feet long. But, these wings are not similar to modern bird’s wings. There were no feathers , their wings were made of a leathery substance. They lived near the sea in the cave & trees. They ate sea fish, large insects & other small dinosaurs. We found their fossils in Europe, North America, Australia, and Africa.  Pterodactyl image credit Pterodactyl Fossil image credit 2. Petinosaurus Petinosaurus wings were formed by membranes of skin and other soft tissues. And also there were no feathers on their wings. These types of flying dinosaurs are small in size than Pterodactyl. Food habit is the same as Pt
