I’ve identified two Update Auth actions on the 16 September 2021:
- set the permission owner to have the authentication
- set the permission active with the parent permission owner to have the authentication
Coincidentally, the timing of this appears to be 20 minutes after a download of simpleos-1.0.5.dmg was saved on my computer.
I do remember downloading Simpleos at the time, because I was having trouble with Scatter and EOS Toolkit, but I don’t remember changing the keys.
If I open Simpleos now, the account appears to be normal, with the correct amount of EOS coins and other airdropped tokens, but when I try to perform an action, no pop ups occur, for example: “view private keys” no secondary window opens. Or “Set Stake” no secondary window opens.
I’ve also just identified a transaction immediately before the “update Auth” actions:
"signup: “Free resources from Block.one!” which would appear to be a scam. And I wouldn’t normally accept or authorise anything like that. But I also wasn’t using Simpleos prior to that and I’m now wondering if I inadvertently accepted the action.
Nothing appears to have been moved from the account.
I have just tried to send a couple of EOS to an Exchange wallet, but as with previous action attempts on Simpleos, no pop up window opens to accept the transaction.
Please let me know if there is anything that can be done, or if the EOS and the account is lost forever.
