I expose only port 30303, not 8545. But when I issue commands eth.accounts. I found these accounts were imported without my knowledge:


Is my GETH hacked? Or these are my peers? My GETH is running extremely slow recently and failed to catchup with the sync

  • these are not your peers. the command eth.accounts return the list of local account, which should be empty if you never created one. Is your node sync ? – M. Riggi Oct 29 '18 at 10:23
  • Yes, my node is synced. But then it was out of synced later, and behaving extremely slowly. That is why I noticed the above changes. May I know how can I remove these accounts from my node? Is it safe to have them there? – s k Oct 30 '18 at 4:22
  • If you didn't create them they shouldn't be here. Can you edit your post with the geth command you're running ? Did you have a previous node installed on your computer ? – M. Riggi Oct 30 '18 at 11:22
