Hello. Please pay attention to my story. Two hours ago I tried to log into my bitstamp account but the password was rejected. I requested a password recovery email on Gmail. Then I could not log into my Gmail account. I restored password on backup email and saw that two-factor authentication to Gmail has been disabled. Same on bitstamp. My balance was $2k and now it is zero. Transaction history shows that dollars was converted to BTC, then BTC was withdrawn to ripple address.
I sent request to Bitstamp support but no answer yet. Don't know what to do. I had 2-FA on gmail and bitstamp, and somehow it was disabled on both. Seems like it 0-day vulnerability or damn know what.
Be extremely careful.

Do you really think all bitstamp traders should be registered here and write messages like aspiring writer? I read this forum more than a year, but I have not had the need to say something. Now i have. Ok, i'm newbie and now i'm really have nothing to do. Sit and wait, guys.

Google support tells me that my google auth application was compromised somehow...but i cannot imagine how..

My btc was withdrawn directly to another btc address without using ripple...so it's the only difference

Lots us newbies accounts. Usual FUD against Bitstamp or whoever it was. Yeah, right, real hackers with the ability to disable 2FA hit $2k accounts. If you are gonna BS us, at least make up some more credible story.

Some guys here think the so called hack of BitStamp account is a FUD.

Who would employ somebody here to FUD BitStamp? Its competitors?

Approximately 3 months ago I had my coinbase, btcjam, cryptsy, and btc-e accounts hacked using similar means.  I don't know if it's the same guys or not, but in my case:

The attackers somehow were able to compromise my e-mail account so they could 'password reset' everything (and tried to cover their tracks by deleting relevant e-mails, but fortunately outlook.com lets you recover deleted e-mails so I saw exactly what they did).  They socially engineered my wireless provider over their customer support chat into allowing them to set up a call forwarding number, which they then tied to a google voice account.  Then they set up an Authy account to bypass the 2FA on coinbase and cryptsy by 'authenticating' themselves using my wireless credentials. 

I lost about 4 BTC all told, fortunately most of my BTCjam btc were tied up in investments so they couldn't extract them. But it was a real wake up call.

Be extremely careful.

it's make me scared , you has added two-factor authentication at gmail account ? and now your 2fa at gmail account get disable ?
what 2fa service you use ? Authy ? athenticator ? sms 2fa ?

Funny how both of your gmail and bitstamp got hacked on the same time Sad
Maybe there's keylogger hidden inside your pc ?
Try to scan your pc first for any suspicious programs

Or maybe someone gave you a phising link to fool you and get your passwords from there

Im really sorry for your loss Sad

Well I'm sure that by now, there would be an uproar on the internet and Twitter if Bitstamp's security had indeed been compromised. Bitstamp is one of the most trusted if not the most trusted Bitcoin exchange out there. I'm not saying you guys are making this up but you gotta admit it's a little strange when out of the blue you get a few newbie accounts popping up on here complaining about being hacked. If what you say is true then I sincerely hope you get your money back. Good luck!

If you are not - I am saying!  Seen it time-and-time again = newbies not to be trusted for FUD!  (and they always go very defensive when exposed...)

Regardless, if they have even one comment back - they won! That's all they are looking for - they want their topic to end up on Google search.

Hehe the irony https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?action=trust;u=38966 . Although I do agree with you, until proof is presented OP's story is as believable as me being from 2150 AD (oh wait a minute!).
P.S: Cya later OP
