I wish I had never left my money on mybitcoin... Used the same password as my mtgox... Stupid? Yes, very stupid.

I won't divulge the exact amount, but it was pretty substantial as I am one (was one?) of the early adopters. Happened at 10AM this morning, coins went to this address: 1MAazCWMydsQB5ynYXqSGQDjNQMN3HFmEu

Sad

Anyone else in the same boat? Just looking for some people to commiserate with...

Once they make their way to Mt Gox and are sold, ask them to roll back all the trades then work with their liaison at the FBI to recover the bitcoin for you.  Word is they're going to set that precedent so no worries.

P.S.  Sorry man, that sucks.

Good job, not only did you use a weak password for financial data, but you used the same one on multiple sites. AND you had time to change it!

While I don't think you deserved it, it was pretty dumb on your part.

Sorry to hear, unfortunately this has been a very expensive lesson for all of us. All the hacking that's going on is insane. I don't trust anything anymore. I'm setting up an entirely separate computer just for handling bitcoins.

I too have a new, separate, never-networked computer just for creating and encrypting new wallets.  Balance can be checked at Block Explorer.

You were not the only one. It seems one person cleaned out all of MyBitcoin (at least the accounts that reused passwords) and gained 4k in the process.

4000 BTC or $4000 USD?

Please tell me it wasn't really all of your coins. I can't make out what that address is doing. It looks like it had thousands in it, were they all yours?

4000BTC. That address it went to is the collection address of all of the stolen Bitcoins - it seems someone wrote a script to automatically logon to all MyBitcoin accounts with known passwords, and withdraw all coins to the same address.

Why this was not caught by MyBitcoin as being potential stealing, is beyond me.

Sorry to hear this.

But people, how many times were you advised on this forum to consider counterparty risks, trust no one, encrypt your wallet and hang on to it?

Leaving 100k USD worth of bitcoins on some amateurish website... I am speechless...

The 4000 bitcoins were not from one account. It seems to have been the total of funds that was collected altogether, from all MyBitcoin accounts that were reusing passwords.

Which again raises the question why. The. Fuck. This. Wasn't. Detected.

My 2BTC are still in mybitcoin acct Smiley
Very different password thanks to keepassx.org

something like
K*=7}%Z9&t`Pb$QN

I have lost coins in different ways through loans and poker but there were no passwords to crack, just my mind-

I wanted to recommend keepassx as that has simplified the handling of passwords in my life-

You haven't figured it out yet?

90% of the damn sites that use bitcoin were coded by a bunch of chumps that don't know WTF they are doing.

Our head media spokesperson, who supposedly owns a TV studio, can't even figure out how to livestream a webcam or get a skype conference call working. That TV show was terrible. It took they 20 minutes to get the mics working and the camera display stayed on the whole show.

Major wallet and exchange sites have poorly slapped together code by people that have obviously never coded sites that need high security before. The Trade Hill people didn't have answers to basic questions.

The gambling sites look like they were drawn by 3rd graders with crayon and CSS . Some of them don't offer regular rules/odds, others don't calculate bets right, and others are most certainly scams.

The few merchant sites that are up are slapped together storefronts.

Bitcoin got too big, too quick, and every 1st semester CS student or person with an Elance account thought they could throw together a site and get rich off of it. Now the community is paying the price.

All hail the creative destruction of a free market.

All hail the creative destruction of a free market.

But sometimes the free-market will save also... as suddenly those who make good sites are at a competitive advantage.

One off NP-Hard.
