In Late August, I moved some IOTA to wallet 2.4.0 for safekeeping. The balance showed up, and closed the wallet. I then got assigned a work contract which consumed almost all of my time for about 3 months. I came back to realize multiple new versions were created and that some people's IOTA were being held by the IOTA foundation due to improperly created seeds, or insecure seeds. It should be noted that I used the command listed on IOTASUPPORT.com to create my seed.
cat /dev/urandom |LC_ALL=C tr -dc 'A-Z9' | fold -w 81 | head -n 1
The seed did have zeros in it. So based on something I read elsewhere, I downloaded the latest client, changed all the zeros in my seed to 9s, and then began the "reattach" process. I reattached 60 times, but the balance did not ever update.
Moving forward. based on a comment that I found on HelloIOTA, it appears that the reclaim tool does NOT apply to me because I was able to see my funds in version 2.4.0.
If the reclaim tool does not apply to me, I cannot connect with client version 2.4, and the updated client does not accept my seed, what are my options? How do I know if I am one of those who were affected.
I thought I did my due diligence.
