How do you know your box was hacked rather than them obtaining the wallet.dat file some other way?

Selling your 6990s for Bitcoins? Why not put them on Ebay for real money? They are going for at least $1,000 now.

security problems are going to be the end of bitcoin users who can't protect our own investments. And I'm not even talking about files that are broadcast across the world via web, I'm talking about my own personal computer. How fucking stupid are some of us?!

Don't be so hard on yourself. These things happen sometimes..

Help Bitcoins by buying clothes, technology, books, etc. through people/stores that accept BTC. This will increase overall value of BTC as well as mitigate unnecessary bank transaction fees.

send out the 4 and sell the other 6.
If you sell them for bitcoins, once you get them distribute them into tiny caches seems like the only option.

I'll pay 2.5 BTC for a really awesome blowjob.  Assuming that's the going rate, you'd need to give out 160.  If you gave out 20 per day, you could have your money back in 8 short days!

No more than with any other financial system.  All this all will do is encourage better security and strengthen the system in the long run.  Trial by fire.

And you're responsible for that.  Unfortunate, but that's the way it goes.

Quote
at least if you keep real money in your house and someone tries to break in and steal it you can fight them off

And they could be "sneaky" and break into your house when you're not home and take that ~7000 usd from under your bed...  You kept all your eggs in one basket, in one wallet file (as opposed to a "savings account"), and you got compromised.

Bitcoins, like cash, can be stored safely offline, away from the clutches of the hackers.  You neglected to do that and were careless with the money of others.  You are responsible as much as any hacker.  You should own up to those whose money you lost and offer to pay the money back over time.

Get a netbook for a couple hundred dollars max. If you're thinking about dealing with anything over 100 BTC, this is a wise investment for this exact quote. Connect netbook via cat-5(without internet access) when you need to send or receive coins, disconnect when you're finished. Keep a backup on a tiny usb in the netbook just in case the PoS dies and you're good to go. Sounds like it's a lot of work, but I'd rather be out about 100 BTC than 400, or even 25000 if allinvain's story is true.

this^

Op should have known this is good practice.  Because it was reasonable to foresee that a hack was possible (anybody read the news), OP can't claim it's all the hacker's fault.

this is crazy, I really do not know what to do.

You have two options:

1. Buy some BTC and refund the people you sold the cards to.
2. Ship the cards to the people who paid you.

Anything else makes you the thief.
