EDIT:
I knew my pc wasn't hacked turn out to be that MT.Gox froze my account because it contained suspicious coins, that was from a hacked wallet.dat


I am just posting here so that you dont say no one warned you...My Mt.gox account has been hacked and I think Mt.gox right now is still hackable and it wasn't fixed..
20:30 GMT 18 June, loggedin mt.gox and deposited some coins and left the pc
21:10 GMT , I log out my pc and leave home for an hour..
When I came back my account was logged out and when i tried to login it didnt work, tried to restart password but says no email on account file.

If you have hundreds/thousands of dollars on your mt.gox i suggest withdrawing to btc         NOWWWW..

Are you not able to login Mt Gox?

When you try to login, do see you account name and balance (on the top right corner) but it says you are "not logged in"?

If so, try reset your password by using your account name (not account email, it will say no email found).
After reset, everything should work.

Why is it that you think Mt Gox was compromised rather than the much more likely possibility of your PC being compromised?

tired of mtgox bashing posts. Much more likely you were compromised elsewhere, though I'm not saying there is no possibility. It's not by chance that there are flood of mtgox bashing thread all over the forum. Just like there are so many useless speculation threads this is just as useless to others. Practice safely using computers that you store your coins and keep your guesses to yourself.

seems a little premature.  You will tell us when / if you remembered your password or the correct email.......RIGHT?
MTgox will log you out after a certain time w/no activity....you did know that right?

You could try to download the files again using different sources, then compare the files.
If I was you, I'd immediately disconnect the pc from the net (might got trojaned somehow), boot it up using a live cd (like ubuntu on cd or a usb stick) and copy my wallet out. Then I'd send all my coins to a new guaranteed unleaked wallet (like one created using the booted live cd).
Important: make a backup of the new wallet before you send any coins to it. Always make sure restoring your backup wallet works before deleting the old wallet.

About "you're not infected as your virus scanner doesn't find anything": that doesn't mean anything. Virus scanners hardly find trojans if they're not already known.

edit: How safe/long was your mtgox password? Can you tell it? You can't use it anymore anyways now.
Most important: did you use the same password somewhere else?

What browser are you using?


Are you using the same username and password for bitcoin.org and mt. gox?
Browser: Firefox 3.6.17
Yes the username is the same, passwords are different..

I don't think I am compromised I have been using the internet for 15 years only hacked once, I use a firewall the requires authentication from me for opening new ports or connecting any software to the internet.And my password is alphanumerical password more than 9 characters (its a random password)
 and yes i use it for other site that are accounts with money too and wasn't compromised.
and I did setup and email on mtgox, yes its possible that I didn't set one but everything is possible right (aka. mtgox compromised)?
You just don't want to believe it Smiley

It's not a matter of not believing you, you just haven't given any reason for us to believe it was Mt Gox that was compromised.  You need to re-evaluate the situation and consider that the breach may have occurred on your computer or due to your security practices.  Your computer could still be compromised and you need to address this.  Going by what you've written this is much more likely than Mt Gox having been compromised.

I wasn't aware that there were other recent reports of this happening at Mt Gox by the way.  I still think that you should do a full audit of your system though.
