Steemit.com bans a hacking group for violating the terms of service

Steemit.com, the most prominent Steem interface, banned a hacking group for violating the site’s Terms of Service. The hacking group, which goes by the name of ‘The Dark Overlord’, posted a message detailing an intention to leak several sensitive documents relevant to the September 11 attacks that the group allegedly hacked. According to Motherboard, ‘The Dark Overlord’ claims to have stolen the documents from different insurers and legal firms including Hiscox Syndicates, Lloyds of London, and Silverstein Properties.

Steem is a platform used primarily for blogging that uses Steem blockchain to host posts and comments. In order to display the information stored on the blockchain, there is a need of a user interface. While the account in question has been removed from Steemit.com, which is an interface operated by the same company that leads the development of Steem, there are several other Steem interfaces such as Busy.org and SteemPeak that have not banned the user nor deleted the post.
