3  Economy / Scam Accusations / OSX malware - BitVanity, StealthBit, Bitcoin Ticker TTM, and Litecoin Ticker. on: February 08, 2014, 06:15:17 AM
Last summer, I lost quite a substantial number of BTCs to a Mac malware named Bitvanity (the story is explained here https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=266813.0)

I would seem that the same coder came up with a new app/malware; StealthBit.

The Reddit post: http://www.reddit.com/r/Bitcoin/comments/1wqljr/i_was_bored_so_i_made_bitcoin_stealth_addresses/

Why I believe it's the same person who wrote previous malware Bitvanity and StealthBit:
Quote from: CptQo @ Reddit
I would recommend extreme caution when using such software.

I just registered to reddit after seeing this post so to warn people.

Last summer, in my infinite wisdom, I downloaded a Mac app call Bitvanity from Github (https://github.com/trevory/bitvanity). It came out to be a malware that empties your Bitcoin wallet. (lost more then 20 BTCs).

(...)

The OP of this thread is called trevorscool, his github account https://github.com/thomasrevor/StealthBit is under the name Thomasrevor.

Bitvanity github account was under the name Trevory (T.Revor.Y you get the drift). Thomas Revor - Trevorscool - Trevory…. Looks a bit suspect.

Also, looks like trevorscool has been deleting a few posts of his from 7 months ago:
http://webcache.googleusercontent.com/search?q=cache:3cbWKz_lDXoJ:webby.hazasite.com/user/trevorscool+&cd=24&hl=en&ct=clnk&gl=uk
compared to:
https://pay.reddit.com/user/trevorscool?count=25&after=t1_cetbxnn

The 3 deleted post are inciting people to download/use Bitvanity + link to Bitvanity Github:

Of course, all this could be just pure coincidence... but the odds are quite slim (Thomasrevor has been silent to my accusations for 4 days now - on Reddit & Github).
4  Economy / Securities / [CryptoStocks] Questions to KUMALA regarding delisting of LABCOIN on: December 01, 2013, 05:51:19 PM
Labcoin has been delisted and trading suspended, so what happens next?
Do we still keep our shares in the system? I m asking this as there is a lawsuit against labcoin and IF any funds from the IPO were to be recovered, it would be good to know who owns what.

Cheers.


NB: PLZ no trolling, this is a public enquiry to Kumala. If you have questions related to this subject, feel free to post.
5  Economy / Currency exchange / [WTB] BTC-e USD Codes (GBP via UKBT/PINGIT) on: November 25, 2013, 06:47:48 PM
Looking to buy around $100 worth of BTC-e codes for GBP - PM me your offers.
6  Economy / Securities / [CryptoStocks] Questions to KUMALA regarding Official Announcement Thread on: November 11, 2013, 02:51:14 PM
Unverified security listings have been suspended with immediate effect. Recent scams have made it clear that the concept of an open and completely unregulated platform does not work.
We'll work out a formalized approach to listings going forward. Although this will not totally prevent but should at least eliminate the risks of misrepresentation.
In the meanwhile, should you want to list a project then contact customersupport@cryptostocks.com.

Does this mean that you are un-listing Labcoin?

7  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Technical Support / Hacked - 22 BTC stolen from Bitcoin-QT v0.8.1-beta wallet on OS X 10.7.5 on: August 02, 2013, 01:59:20 PM
So here is what happened. Yesterday night, I withdrew BTCs from BTCT.co

Transferred: 22.65118847 BTC
  Payment Address: 1936Ej4GZeJ4LBsjHQ6U8v2tooTTa1jDFf
  Transaction ID: 248fefca0bae07642a39830d6f86a436c18f33855ec86e18794577f16421f5e7
  Site Fee: 0 BTC
  bitcoind Fee: 0.0005 BTC

Received them into my wallet and decided to send them to BTC-e (couldn't do it directly from BTCT.co as I had a locked withdrawal address).
Entered the all amount for transaction (previous to this, my wallet was empty as I rarely use it), entered my passphrase (around 25 random characters) and proceeded to send.
At this point Bitcoin-QT became unresponsive. I forced quit and restarted the application, and I got the message: "wallet.dat corrupt, salvage failed".
I retrieve the dat file from my daily backup and replace the corrupted one.
The wallet starts to sync, and my 22.65118847 BTC are still there.
I start again the process to send BTC to BTC-e, enter the passphrase, and at this point the app tells me I don't have enough funds.
I go to transaction and can see that the entire wallet is being transferred to 12YabLfo4W51EqU6amYNtopPJZjRJfU46U

I really don't want anyone to go through what I went in the last 14 hours. I therefore would very much appreciate any input from the community so as to understand where I messed up.

When that happened, I had Vanitygen Bitvanity running in the background. I also had Chrome running (gmail, btct,  btc-e, coindesk, etc. No dodgy websites). I m just trying to give any relevant info - let me know if I can provide anything more.

I m scanning the entire system with SOPHOS - it has done around 95% and found nothing.

Thank you all in advance for your input.


E.


[EDIT: Sorry, due to lack of sleep I just realised I had written Vanitygen instead of Bitvanity. Αpology for the confusion to samr7, author of Vanitygen on Github]

Hi all,

Does anyone have BTC-E code for sale? If you are an established member of the community, then no need for escrow - will send the funds to your UK bank first (Pingit or UKBT).

Cheers
