Warning: Steem witnesses executed a hard fork on 2020-05-20, seizing 23.6M STEEM from 65 accounts. The funds were transferred to an account named @community321, the ownership (and intentions) of which have not been revealed. The witnesses claim to have been targeting accounts which defended against a hostile takeover in early March, but at least 2 accounts on the list have been inactive for over 4 years.

# What is PlentyOfPhish?

This is the account that holds the list of hacked (phished) accounts or accounts spawned by hackers. 

# Rationale

The purpose for this account is to act as a database for bots to hook into.  

Currently, hackers intermittently use bots to promote phishing links and other malicious material on hacked accounts.  Bot owners have no way of controlling what the bot votes on and often by the time they realise that the bot upvoted a phishing link, it's too late and it's been viewed by others. 

Leveraging this list will provide a positive ROI for bot owners as it will prevent the loss of curation rewards. The majority of malicious posts/comments will receive a flag from @steemcleaners and related projects to hide the content on front ends where content may be hidden and to prevent rewards from falling into the hands of hackers. Upvoting content that will be flagged is a waste of VP and will generate no curation rewards. 

# Bot Owners: How To Use

Add a parameter to your bot to check if the account is being muted by @plentyofphish.  The mute parameter is part of `Follow`.  Follow has three types: `blog` (follow), `undefined`, and `ignore`(mute).  How you reference this list is up to you and depends on what language your bot is coded in.

Bot owners are encouraged to make a post about using @plentyofphish in order to recoup the extra development time they will incur adapting their bots.

# Key Holders: How To Use

1. **Mute** the account when it's under hacker control.

Brilliant. So grateful for the work of all @steemcleaners! Thank you all, and especially to @guiltyparties for starting this, and for all the help when I was a victim.  Resteemed and shared in #steemitbloggers and #teamsouthafrica discord servers

I like the implementation method of this... it makes it easier for bot owners to check the list on an as needed basis.  Great design!
