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.

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.

Quote

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.

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.

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.

If people paid you in bitcoins for a product, you need to ship that product regardless if you are now out of the money.
It isn't their fault your security was lax.

Can you provide the details of how you were hacked for the benefit of the community? And if you'd like, include the actual IP addresses and times of the attacker (remove your own IP address if you want) so that perhaps the attacker can be identified and if the attack source was itself compromised, appropriate notifications can be sent. This will also help people to believe you, if you care about that.

Yeah, and if a thief breaks into your house, you can't really blame the thief because you know that locks can be picked, it's partly your fault for not staying in your house all the time with an automatic weapon.

be careful. In the states if a thief falls through a skylight and lands on a knife, you could be held liable. Doesn't really apply for bitcoins, but still funny.

But if 5 of your 10 neighbors say "I left the door unlocked and I got robbed this weekend", and the cops tell you "Lock your doors" and you dont, then you go to the cops and say "I got robbed!  I left my door unlocked, but you didn't stop them! The police department should reimburse me, as should all of my neighbors!"

Hello Thomas,
You are a network Admin at CNY-Media in Hannibal New York.
You should know what a log file looks like, and you should be able to prove this hack with little effort.

The buyers have your name, phone, address, business address, facebook account, etc.

I'd suggest refunds all around.

Good day.

I just re-read the thread and I don't see the place where he asked for me or anyone else to reimburse him.

I look at it this way, if 1 of your neighbors says "I had the house locked and someone still broke in" I'll be more careful,  If 5 of them say it I'll be even more careful (like change my locks), each report I hear I'll increase my vigilance.  It is very useful to hear about them to get an idea of the magnitude of the problem.  If, after all that, I still get my house broken into, I'll tell my neighbors and it is still the thief's fault.

Yeah, people are quick to jump on him. We can speculate about his motives about any number of imagined facts.

I am curious about the distribution of Linux, what services were running, how many users, type of networking (wifi?), how often the system is updated, and (since I assume the password has been changed) what the password of the victims account was.

I hope the people who gave you 400BTC (if this is even true, might just be another BTC hater) come after you.

I had almost 400 btc in my wallet on my linux box today. Someone was OBVIOUSLY watching the forums and either hacked me today or already had me hacked.

I had a very public LARGE business deal going and someone STOLE ALL OF THE BTC !!!!!

I was selling 10 XFX 6990's , I had 4 different buyers and I am completely screwed now!!!!!!


this is crazy, I really do not know what to do. i am going to get sued because some hacker scum bag

i was holding 400 btc of other peoples money and I was hacked today.

I have known this for hours but am just going public with it now. I really dont know what to do.

someone hacked my linux box and transfered out all this btc to some other accounts


FUCK FUCK FUCK FUCK FUCK

i am ruined.

at least if you keep real money in your house and someone tries to break in and steal it you can fight them off
but these hackers are sneaky as fuck i dont know what to do im like totally freaking out right now!

He shouldn't worry about being sued but charged with grand theft/larceny interstate wire fraud etc.
Because I would be looking into pressing charges if it was me who sent coins for goods and didn't receive.
Not to mention some concerned forum users who know more about him than he knows about himself it looks Wink

Let's assume you are not joking:
He is a network Admin at CNY-Media and you already have his "personal-site" Joomla admin login name and password?
Hope is employer doesn't see this thread...

Not like I have done anything with it or plan to.  He's been advised in public about what I and many others know in case he plans on running away with the coins and cards.

I believe in my heart that this God fearing individual will see the mess he has gotten himself in to and will do the right thing and refund his buyers or ship out the merchandise.

If not, I have it on file in case the buyers want to pursue further legal action.

security problems are going to be the end of bitcoin.


I had almost 400 btc in my wallet on my linux box today. Someone was OBVIOUSLY watching the forums and either hacked me today or already had me hacked.

I had a very public LARGE business deal going and someone STOLE ALL OF THE BTC !!!!!

I was selling 10 XFX 6990's , I had 4 different buyers and I am completely screwed now!!!!!!


this is crazy, I really do not know what to do. i am going to get sued because some hacker scum bag

i was holding 400 btc of other peoples money and I was hacked today.

I have known this for hours but am just going public with it now. I really dont know what to do.

someone hacked my linux box and transfered out all this btc to some other accounts


FUCK FUCK FUCK FUCK FUCK

i am ruined.

at least if you keep real money in your house and someone tries to break in and steal it you can fight them off
but these hackers are sneaky as fuck i dont know what to do im like totally freaking out right now!








There is nothing you can do. Once the bitcoins were in your possession their security was your responsibility. Just like if people pay you cash for video cards, and you get robbed on your way home, the guys who bought the video cards have nothing to do with you being robbed. You are still responsible for sending the video cards. I feel for you and it really sucks that this happened (assuming your story is true, you never know, because this message board seems to be filled with trollers and dishonest types). But, if it's true, I hope you aren't posting here looking for sympathy and that you aren't going to try to back out of the deal to sell the cards. You should still send them.
Hello Thomas,
You are a network Admin at CNY-Media in Hannibal New York.
You should know what a log file looks like, and you should be able to prove this hack with little effort.

The buyers have your name, phone, address, business address, facebook account, etc.

I'd suggest refunds all around.

Good day.

Why would he do refunds, and not simply send them the cards? Or did he not own the cards to begin with? Was he acting as a middle man, purchasing the cards using the bitcoins the people sent him?

Now would be a good time to seek some Mediation or other non-court dispute resolution, because, if this goes to court, OP, you're hosed either way.

This is most definitely a scam, and I have proof.

Yesterday, he pointed out in a support request that about 230 BTC in this address was his on behalf of his customers:
http://blockexplorer.com/address/16k6KeqY13MEwXCKa6uMWvsg7Bmqq1TzXb

Thus far:
35.5 BTC haven't moved
At MINIMUM 78 BTC was change that is still in his control (if it was the other way around, it was 150)

That's 113.5 BTC that the thief decided to just leave. Yeah... BULLSHIT!

While thinking about whether this guy may or may not have hatched a scheme to steal people coins it made me wonder something. 

At this point in the game when people do transactions, at what point does the sender accept some responsibility in ensuring(by asking or otherwise) that the receiver has taken proper measures to secure his/her Bitcoins(wallet.dat) on the other end?

Just throwin it out there.

At no point. When I hand over cash to the corner store, it's not my fault someone knocks it over after I walk out.

If you didn't receive the goods you just handed your cash over for you'd be damn pissed pissed if the goods and the cash were gone soon after.  And you'd feel a damn retard if the store was in the middle of Compton and had no security of bars on the windows to protect it.

Since many people are scared of Bitcoin as it is based on the very technical nature of it, I hope these recent attacks don't scare too many people off. For those that stay, Bitcoin security is going to be huge in the Bitcoin market.

Caveat Emptor

ie: Don't go into the store in Compton with no bars.

This is why they invented Clearcoin.

1) Yes, that's a Parody. Imperi's a mildly amusing troll.

2) Clearcoin is an escrow house. If you're that paranoid, don't use an automated one.

1) Yes, that's a Parody. Imperi's a mildly amusing troll.

2) Clearcoin is an escrow house. If you're that paranoid, don't use an automated one.

1.) probably not a good thing to be making light off don't you agree ?

2.) why is he saying this OP and himself do deserve our donations if he isn't serious ?

"The developers forgot to implement fraud protection into this currency, and so poor individuals like myself have no recourse after being hacked. I did remember to lock my screen but the hacker probably found a way around that. 

Please help us set up a charity fund for people who have been hacked. It's the only recourse or Bitcoin's name will be tarnished forever in the eyes of the media, bankers, and investors.

You forget to put donation address dude.

I had almost 400 btc in my wallet on my linux box today. Someone was OBVIOUSLY watching the forums and either hacked me today or already had me hacked.

I had a very public LARGE business deal going and someone STOLE ALL OF THE BTC !!!!!

I was selling 10 XFX 6990's , I had 4 different buyers and I am completely screwed now!!!!!!


this is crazy, I really do not know what to do. i am going to get sued because some hacker scum bag

i was holding 400 btc of other peoples money and I was hacked today.

I have known this for hours but am just going public with it now. I really dont know what to do.

someone hacked my linux box and transfered out all this btc to some other accounts


FUCK FUCK FUCK FUCK FUCK

i am ruined.

at least if you keep real money in your house and someone tries to break in and steal it you can fight them off
but these hackers are sneaky as fuck i dont know what to do im like totally freaking out right now!

WTF did you have your wallet online?  Mine is only online for the duration of the transaction I'm doing and then pulled back off to thumb-drive.

If nothing else this bitcoin project will push more much better levels of security with computers, it is amazing how vulnerable all computers really are.

I'll keep my politics out of your economics if you keep your economics out of my politics.

OP fucked himself up telling he got hacked on Linux. He should have said "OMG i was storing my wallet.dat on my win95 pc running IE2 and for some reason i got robbed while downloading all kinds of porn screensavers all day long!!11". Though, he would have been fucked up in that case too.

But if your concerned about security use linuxcoin Wink I keep telling people leaving your wallet on a computer online is like leaving your real wallet on the back seat of your car in plain view !! And then you bitch about it when your own mistakes caused you to loose money Cheesy

This is why they invented Clearcoin.

Clearcoin doesn't solve anything. Both buyers and sellers can scam the other using Clearcoin.
I don't see how anyone can really scam each other through it.
I've used it now once and asked the other person to donate to charity if I don't deliver so It's lose/lose.

Am I right in saying however that if after 30 days they are returned to your wallet if not released but by that time you would surely file a complaint with clearcoin and show them proof you delivered what was asked  Huh

Yeah dude, locking your screen isn't going to help when all I need to do is code an app that greps for the wallet and then FTPs it to my server. You can code Bitcoin Malware in under 50 lines. Exploit via 0day, browser, java, bot, whatever.

Time is money. This means that if you have spare time, you can use it to make money.

can we place all these threats in a section called "I left the wallet on my car's front seat, and now it's gone"?
we are going to see many of these

This is not going to be the end of Bitcoin, but the start of a new era in digital security products , procedures, services... culture?

What version of Linux were you using, and how did a hacker "hack" your system?

It doesn't sound very likely to me.

IE isn't available for Linux.  Wink

There aren't many malware programs for Linux either. You basically have "herd immunity" from viruses just by using Linux. (For those who understand the concept "herd immunity")

Honestly, Bitcoin is a cool thing to speculate on and all, but to buy graphics cards with Bitcoin? You are basically asking yourself to get scammed. At least intermediaries like Amazon or Ebay can help you, but I wouldn't dare do commerce with Bitcoin. Not yet, at any rate.

By saying "my linux box just got hacked, and now I'm going to get sued", he also pretty much said:

"I downloaded something from an untrusted source, intentionally set it to executable, and then intentionally executed it. I gave the hacker your money. Now I am going to get sued because I am an idiot."

Good luck with that.

Quote
Clearwing cannot, and will not, mediate any disputes arising from the use of ClearCoin.

I was too harsh in my first reply. Clearcoin is an excellent option for buyers, but only in the non-donate option. Had this transaction been using Clearcoin, all the buyers would get their coins back. Stay far away from sellers that require the donate option. Once the coins are in donation-escrow and the seller backs out, like this one did, the only way the buyer can get the coins back is to release them to the seller. That's exactly what a scamming seller wants!!!

There have been Linux security vulnerabilities before, you know. As in bona-fide, open the wrong webpage and get instantly hacked vulnerabilities. In fact, most of the security issues in programs like Flash and Firefox apply just as much on Linux as on Windows these days, it's just that no-one really bothers to target Linux desktops. Bitcoin seems like a very worthwhile reason for some hacker to change that.

Someone actually managed to hack into my Linux box yesterday through some SSH hole. Luckily I didn't have my wallet sitting around. I'm amazed that the hole was there by default (I installed SSH and figured it would only work for my username).

Good point, Imperi. He could also be saying "I forgot to change the default config on my new install of SSH, and now I'm going to be sued because I am an idiot."

Especially after that whole debacle with the iPhone - or was it Android - I can remember, But a bunch of phones got hacked via the default ssh password.

So is this new troll policy???

Always keep a fresh topic on the list about a hack or BTC theft. I swear I've read this same post and the same tone several times now. Even some of the same words of desperation.

Any newbie or reporter that comes by will see it posted there.

I'm sorry but I just don't buy it. I call BS of the highest order.

If all that's true, you're holding board member BTC. Correction, you were. I hope to god you ship out those cards or your the thief.

Don't expect sympathy for DEMANDING people meet you on your terms, not use escrow, collect payment before shipping......

I smell a set up. Let's  bring those other members to this thread and figure this out.

The only one of my Linux machines that got hacked was hacked in a similar way, except it was a VPS and my mistake was not realising that HyperVM was sneakily resetting my root password to the provider-set default of "changeme" behind my back. (Surprisingly, even then it seems it took several days for anyone to actually brute-force their way in.)

Here's a bit of idle sleuthing:

The 16k6Keq... address is labelled "OP a/c" as it is self-identified in a subsequent post at June 21, 2011, 01:27:54 pm.

The blocks are in date order.


-----

Block 132307 2011-06-21 13:00:14
From: misc small
From: 1KJN1KGGJCLLpTXeGpv3YLXb14QCPBHrXZ: 211 (??)
to: 16k6KeqY13MEwXCKa6uMWvsg7Bmqq1TzXb: 228 (OP a/c)

-----

Block 132313 2011-06-21 13:21:39
From: (mostly) 1CzYyxkCkRd2R5JqHYsYgaxw14Xdqq9mQE: 0.45

Bitcoin wallet problem. Coins not showing up. Please Help!
June 21, 2011, 01:27:54 pm

ok someone please help. Im kind of freaking out. I just sent almost 230 btc from one wallet to another , there have been 7 confirmations showing on the sender side but the transaction has not even showed up on the receiving end!

what do I do?
http://blockexplorer.com/address/16k6KeqY13MEwXCKa6uMWvsg7Bmqq1TzXb

thats the block explorer address for my receiving wallet


-----

Block 132345 2011-06-21 17:58:21
From: 16k6KeqY13MEwXCKa6uMWvsg7Bmqq1TzXb: 228 (OP a/c)
to: 1MQhCaxAkbcFwAxNiL37sJfwk25cJ39F6u: 150 (?)
to: 1PWjXneVnL9T3yqTg5mLr2b7xGWvhLiGD: 78 (see end of post for follow-up transfer)

-----

Im the one who sent him 35 BTC that he now owes me because he promised me an XFX 6990.  



Uploaded with ImageShack.us

assume legit transaction

Block 132613 2011-06-22 17:54:09
To: 1HnrkZinXsb7BVg6Cid82mkH2iGZ2S46fm: 35 (OP a/c)

-----

Block 132640 2011-06-22 20:12:33
From: 1HnrkZinXsb7BVg6Cid82mkH2iGZ2S46fm: 35 (OP a/c)
to: 16k6KeqY13MEwXCKa6uMWvsg7Bmqq1TzXb: 35 (OP a/c)

-----

So at this point the BTC in question are still in Immune's control as he is still transferring coins to this same 16k6Keq address. Note the transfer out of this address of 228 BTC the previous day.

Immune (OP) posts at 2011-06-23 00:45:26 saying 400 BTC stolen "hours" ago. But there are no transfers out of this address since Block 132640 2011-06-22 20:12:33, when OP sent 35 BTC to this same address.

16 hours later, a transfer is made from this address of 35 BTC:

-----

Block 132843 2011-06-23 16:44:38
From: 16k6KeqY13MEwXCKa6uMWvsg7Bmqq1TzXb: 35 (OP a/c)
to: 17u8j4Eu2LnsY8pGKaXgayoKrASmfGScFW: 30
to: 16paRtbrHkzetP22NUAJGzPAvjR5Uzijz2: 5

-----

And a follow-up of the transfer:

-----

Block 132764
2011-06-23 08:07:15
From: 1PWjXneVnL9T3yqTg5mLr2b7xGWvhLiGD: 78
plus 15 others totalling 750 BTC
to: 167uGc235YogUFFRqLyvoaXoA7GdXozqYi: 750

-----

Block 132831
2011-06-23 15:30:27
From: 167uGc235YogUFFRqLyvoaXoA7GdXozqYi: 750
to: 1DvJjEapvLLY6fkbECxNsrczrhwvqPFVay: 747
to: 19m847ob4dBwQGpVnetefjKYLWJU7jPtBE: 3

Any further comments, Immune?

That's why you *never* enable password access on SSH, and certainly never allow remote root logins.

Wow immune... I hope you're on the run, like now.  Because people are going to be after you like dogs on... a hot dog (both kinds).

Anyway, this is exactly why I wish more people would start using bitcoinfeedback.  With lots of usage, buyers would start to have power to say "I won't buy from anyone with less that X number of feedback".  Sure, you could still get screwed over, but don't buy 10 6990's from a guy who has only sold resistors and gumpacks before, and you should be ok.

security problems are going to be the end of bitcoin.


I had almost 400 btc in my wallet on my linux box today. Someone was OBVIOUSLY watching the forums and either hacked me today or already had me hacked.

I had a very public LARGE business deal going and someone STOLE ALL OF THE BTC !!!!!

I was selling 10 XFX 6990's , I had 4 different buyers and I am completely screwed now!!!!!!


This was a problem from first post, now with teh sleuthing it seems you are a crook and this was your plan the whole time, Hiding behind bitcoin is possible but not fool proof so I hope someone gets their hands on you.

By saying "my linux box just got hacked, and now I'm going to get sued", he also pretty much said:

"I downloaded something from an untrusted source, intentionally set it to executable, and then intentionally executed it. I gave the hacker your money. Now I am going to get sued because I am an idiot."
There are quite a few other ways to exploit a box running Linux. Attempting the method you described there would be my last thought.

Anyone who uses bitcoins as currency right now is an idiot.  This is scammer's paradise right here.  Hell, we can't even trust the pools or exchanges at this point, who the hell is trusting some ass from a forum who is basically completely anonymous?  Hard to feel any sympathy at all for people who so easily fall prey to scam artists.

Nope it takes a idiot to blame a transparent currency for people's stupidity !! The pools are up front with their charges. There will always be people that are out there to scam you it's down to you to have your shuts about you and not get caught.

Also I see a lot of people winging about bitcoin but you have to see it for what it is. And there are so many open oppotunities for people to make legal money out of bitcoin and make this currency great. It's a shame there's lots of greedy people and also a shame more people are putting their skills into establishing flourishing businesses and really make bitcoin a reallity. Might get flamed for saying but it's just my opinion Wink.

All I can say is this: If it sounds too good to be true, It usually is!

 I knew something seemed off about his selling thread for the 10 6990's. I talked it over with a Mod, he confirmed his IP was the same, so he wasn't hacked. I just passed him off as a scammer. If there is one thing I've learned from online marketplaces, If you miss one good deal, there will always be another somewhere else. (Life lesson learned from playing Neopets and Gaiaonline)

OP, on the off chance you are reading this:

You may wish to read up on the Wire Fraud Act.  For example, http://www.lorandoslaw.com/FAQ/Wire-Fraud.shtml

Pay close attention to the essential elements of what constitutes wire fraud.  Interstate commerce is pretty important to the US government at a Federal level.  This isn't small claims Judge Judy stuff if that's what you're expecting.  Violation of the Wire Fraud Statute can result in a fine, imprisonment of up to 20 years, or both.  You sure you want to risk it for $6000?

Yep I entirely agree with your sentiment. It seems bitcoins rampant popularity growth might be the very thing that hurt it the most. A slow and gradual adoption curve would've been ideal. This way it would've given more time for entrepreneurs to get in and build a solid economic base. But I think we are straying off-topic here so I shall leave it at that.

@OP...could you post IP logs perhaps? Anything?

@the rest of you.....so the general consensus is that this claim is false?

I see a problem with your Pointing out the Wire Fraud Act. In order to press charges under said act, the government would have to accept that Bitcoin is in fact, Money! .... Oh wait, that might be a good thing! PRESS CHARGES ASAP!

Not at all.  The defendent enriched himself by $xxx as seen by deposit into account YYY.  Money obtained by fradulent means using a complex scheme involving the internet.  Bitcoins wouldn't even need to be mentioned except as a footnote.

I see..that explains why the OP hasn't attempted to defend himself.

He did text me and email me saying he really wants to fix this. I'll screenshot it and upload it when my partner drops my phone off.

Of course I leave my phone in his truck as soon as I need it.






He sounds legitimate, he went out of his way to tell me he wants to make it right. We'll see what happens.

He wants to make what right, specifically?  He asked for money for a tangible item.  Money exchanged hands, but a tangible item has not yet been exchanged.  It doesn't matter at all what happens after the fact.  You have him BTC in exchange for a tangible item.  If he does not give it, he is a theif.  Period.  There should be NO QUESTION about what happens next.  He should give you the item you paid for and he should continue to try and get his money back from the theif that took HIS money.  But at this point it has nothing at all to do with the people that gave him money in exchange for product.

nice... going to be toting around that 7k debt for awhile.  Im betting he rang up his credit card to buy 10 cards, and now his coins are either goxed or something.

If it were me, i'd put those 10 cards up on amazon at 1300 a piece and buy 10 more.

He basically had his drug dealer front him 7 grand worth of video cards, and now he cant pay!

why would you bring up this very unfortunate situation that happened months ago? I am sorry you got labeled as a scammer but I did not scam anyone.

Within days of MTGox getting hacked over the summer so was my linux box this was way before we had encrypted wallets and I was ripped off, a lot of my own money and a lot of other peoples money

I have since made arrangements to pay this back although I did not steal anything I felt responsible for it so I wanted to make right on it

this is the reason I was not labeled a scammer

yes I changed my "nick" but my name has not changed - something I have always been very public about.

Please go troll some place else.

further more not only have I made right on that situation but I have also conducted thousands of dollars in positive transactions on this forum since then, there is not a single person on this forum or any where else that can call me a scammer.
