Hello, yesterday 10000 pivx were stolen from my encrypted wallet. My computer knowledge is good I have removed malware and viruses from hundreds of computers as I did it for a job for few years. Is it possible that I have been hacked is for someone to send me a key logger and then transfer my PIVX wallet.dat to their computer and then transfer funds out?
At the time of the transaction I was setting up the masternode and asked for help on slack. Maybe someone from pivx slack saw my post hacked me?
I have traced the transaction... it ended up here

I will give a reward to anyone who can help with the discovery of my stolen coins

No unknown emails or downloads. I'm very aware of malware and can spot a dodgy download easily. Also using up to date eset smart security and malwarebyes.

Maybe your pc is injected with keylogger. Its impossible you lose that amount without doing anything on your pc. If you didn't click any suspicious links on your email. Check if you downloaded browser extensions. Sometimes antivirus can't scan virus or malware. Just use linux os for better security.

Use (offline) random string generator for passwords, then store passwords into a password manager program, back up password manager file in zero-knowledge cloud storage.  This way you never type in your passwords even once.

EDIT: I know this doesn't help you get your funds back, and you most likely won't be able to.  Unfortunately, you may just have to treat this as an expensive lesson that your crypto security practices were insufficient.

At the time of the transaction I was setting up the masternode and asked for help on pivx slack.

Police investigations focus on things that are unlikely to be a coincidence. Here's one.

I think so, With your PIVX wallet.dat someone being able to open your wallet.
But in my opinion, if your desktop gets infected by the keylogger or another malware.

At the time of the transaction I was setting up the masternode and asked for help on slack. Maybe someone from pivx slack saw my post hacked me?
My thought if that's a correct assumption.

I will give a reward to anyone who can help with the discovery of my stolen coins

I'm sorry, but no one can help you in this case. Your amount successfully funded to the hacker's account.

Looks he was successful to infiltrate another desktop.
Regarding his transaction history.

Can you recommend a good password manager program?

And how does one back up passwords in zero-knowledge cloud storage?

Thanks

Sorry to hear that buddy but I don't think they will be recovered now. Only possible solution would be to hire a better hacker maybe who would do the same that has been done with you.

Hello.
Thanks for your reply. Can you recommend a hacker to help. I don't expect the coins back. I just want proof I was hacked and how it was done

Regards michael

Ouch.

I was reading on the pivx slack that there was a fake wallet client available for download somewhere online. Mods were saying to be careful and to make sure you update your client to the new version due to a protocol update. New version is 2.2 I believe. Only download from the official website.

Also if you did not update to v2.2 you would be on a forked chain. You need to update to v2.2, manually resync the blockchain, import your wallet and then you may have to do a repair via the client (option is in one of the menus). I thought I had lost about 9k pivx until I completed that wallet repair.

Have you asked the guys on the pivx support slack for help?

Feel bad for you man. So many people are having difficulty getting their masternodes set up, and now it seems people are even being scammed. The devs need to make that process way easier.

Also, was your wallet encrypted?

Yes I have updated to 2.2 and spoken to the lead developer. Infact I was chatting to the devs at the time of the hack.
I just need some proof that the hack occurred. Anyone know of a white hat hacker that can confirm I was hacked?

A key logger is possible. But transferring a wallet.dat file from my c: drive ain't easy to do but maybe possible?

There must be some evidence on my pc that the hack occurred. Happy to pay to find out how this happened.
Im really in mourning over my stolen masternode

Sorry to hear that, sounds impossible mission for the hackers because you didn't download or click some suspicious links, weird, but you have to face it. Buy coins in exchanges, not keep them in your pc.

I have ran malware bytes root kit and kl detector and found nothing. My win 7 is password protected and i dont allow rdc. I'm 95% sure I was not hacked. I don't see how my wallet.dat could have been transferd from my hard drive to a hacker?

When you talking about this mysterious disappearing of your coins my thoughts are focused on the different side, to become suspicious about this code, and i hope whole this topic is not about creating confusin and fear..This wont reflect good on oure investments.

Why would I want to create fear in the PIVX community?
I have enjoyed chatting to the members on slack it's a great community and very helpful.

I just don't believe I was hacked there's no evidence that supports the hack has taken place.

Can anyone inform me of what type of hack exploit this could be as I did not open or receive any malicious files?

What details were posted on Slack?
Were you recommended to make any changes to your configuration or download any files?
Hopefully someone with knowledge about setting up a Pivx masternode can look at the info you were given and determine if anything would have lead to a compromise.

Very rare case on which you have been getting hacked while doing nothing since you are a computer techy guy and you know already the possible things for being hacked then you do know the things to be avoided but you didnt skip or passed on this one.Possible suspect would really be on that slack channel,im not programming expert but the hacker is definitely there. 10000 PIVX is too much equivalent on 15 btc,sorry for the lose i think no one would really make those coins be recovered.

I would recommend you do a fresh install of your operating system

mickeyspit [9:27 PM]
that aint gunna my cash back?

mbalance
[9:27 PM]
and about the lost PIVX, if they are not in some other wallet that you have they are pretty sure gone

mickeyspit [9:28 PM]
this is bullshit

mbalance
[9:29 PM]
It is not recommended for non technical members to setup their masternodes and never ever invest more then you can afford to lose in anything

[9:29]
I understand your situation but see it as a lesson learnt (edited)

mickeyspit [9:33 PM]
so thats it huh?>

[9:33]
i lost 20000 AUD??

mbalance
[9:36 PM]
If you don't have the PIVX in some other wallet probably. Please go through the wallet FAQ just to be sure https://forum.pivx.org/t/faq-for-wallet-issues/

FAQ for Wallet Issues
This is an unofficial FAQ made by me to keep all the things in 1 place for easy reference. I will add more over time and ensure that it is up to date whenever possible.

Sorry judging from what I read you should go no where near this technology, if you do don't invest more then you can afford to lose

mickeyspit [8:54 PM]
Are you serious? That's a terrible response from a developer

[8:54]
I did nothing wrong

mbalance
[8:54 PM]
You are using windows, any kid can hack windows 7 without you taking notice

[8:55]
Just to name one issue

[8:55]
And I'm not a dev!

mickeyspit [8:55 PM]
Well I was unaware hacking win 7 is so easy

[8:56]
If it's so easy can u please explain how it was done?

mbalance
[8:56 PM]
You where unaware of many other things as well, you can not just put 20k on your HD and think its safe without doing your homework

mickeyspit [8:57 PM]
I did my homework. I know what I'm doing.

mbalance
[8:57 PM]
You can use google for all of your questions, I do not have the time for this

[8:57]
