At this point the only constructive thing you can do is publish your wallet seed; it might allow us to investigate.


The seed from the wallet my bitcoins were stolen? Will that not compromise my security posting it publicly?

It goes without saying then that I'm screwed, and now broke Sad

Can't believe it. Time after time I've been scammed by vapourware or delays. Never been robbed straight up from my wallet

Donations welcome  Embarrassed

Help a 'hero' out!

I don't think you will receive any donation from the forum users, because it seems really strange from you.

No me neither. Got nothing to lose though. I'm an honest guy I just really hope people don't think I'm making this up. I am just a small time bitcoin user with a roof over my head and place to rest my head. So I'm lucky in that respect. If anyone should be asking for donations it should be the poor souls in Nepal that really really need donations.

Just wish I hadn't lost all of bitcoin is all! Sad

Yup. He also claims to not be very tech savvy, however engages in things that would typically only be done by someone who is tech savvy

Incorrect check my previous post. I am very computer literate and often very careful with my BTC.

No idea what SWX is, like I said, no one I kno knows I have any bit coin or what they even are! NO one has access to my PC. I've spent all night formatting and re-installing everything but I still can't work out if I was compromised or not.... Running in a VM with no other program except Tor and all unnecessary services disabled.

I'm stumped. And in a real tricky situation because I needed that BTC more than you can imagine.

Windows 7 and VMware from encrypted container running Ubuntu
Likely the problem is here, how good is the entropy of this encryption?

Pretty strong. i use truerypt

It's weird that the bitcoins just arrived in your account and it got transferred in 1 minute. All say that Electrum is safe and this cannot happen unless your PC has been compromised. The transaction note as well is weird and if it's an error from Electrum, you can expect your money back as this might have happened with many other users as well.

Shall I contact electrum do you think?

A laptop (with elctrum) and a PC yes. Problem?

Yes, asking for charity is slightly inappropriate under such circumstances because:

1) This all could be an orchestrated ruse to get some free BTC and apparently small amounts of BTC is a big deal to you

2) You really need to secure you computers first and practice better security in general even if you have 2 devices (there could be cross contamination.

I am not assuming anything but that is kinda how it looks when people overtly ask for charity right after being hacked.

I'm just pissed of because I just spent the last of my cash and lost it almost instantly. fml

Oh and I'm a fairly respected member here. Do you think this some kind of scam?

A fake Electrum server  Roll Eyes

Is that possible? and is elctrum responsible for that at all?

If it is indeed an Electrum bug, then they will compensate you for sure. But I'm not sure what kind of harm a fake server can do, since the signing of the transaction happens locally and no one should have the knowledge of your seed

If your VM machine was not running when the theft happens, then the weakness should be in the seed or private key

Well either way I'm fucked. Accepting donations to my sig.. Fuck my dignity. hah Sad

Yes, This is a very likely possibility. Do not use auto-connect with SPV clients and select an older trusted server.

Fuck I've been screwed so many times. BFL, Avalon, mtGox, 50BTC, blackarrow. Fuck them all. Only got back in to BTC recently after about 4-5 months. I give up.

No this a fairly new build (PC). ANd I've been isolated completely living on this boat.

Perhaps we should follow the hackers breadcrumbs...

3lectruM fail. More2come SWX

What version of electrum are you running? Where did you download it from?  Since you are using a SPV client what server did you connect to?

v2.1.1 downloaded from their website and i check the checksums. Server is autconnect.

No one I know knows about bitcoin

It isn't about bitcoin, they could have grabbed your btc incidentally when they saw you were involved. No one you know or are in contact with is technical?

Trust me. I'm on a boat, with a personal crappy old laptop. No one has been near this. My internet is 150kb/s tops and I hate it!

Additionally, think about anyone else that has access or come in contact with your computer or any usb drive in the past. Additionally, since you are on a boat with a 150 kb/s connection that also brings 2 concerns to my mind : 1) you aren't keeping your windows box patched because of your extremely limited bandwidth. 2) You are using a wifi hotspot that is compromised.

The fact that you are so incredulous that you have been compromised is a security concern in itself as their are so many ways to be compromised with the way you store bitcoins. At most you should be upset and slightly shocked that you were compromised but aware that you made some security shortcuts and need to do better in the future.
