About 4 days ago my Mybitcoin account got hacked by the hackers who hacked MTGox.
They took my 23,5BTC's.
After sending a email to support I got a answer about that they couldn't do anything about it...(!?)

Did this happen to anyone else?

Were you using the same password on both sites?

it's a *really* good idea to use different passwords on trading sites (mtgox) than "bank" sites (mybitcoin).

Your password hashes were released to the world from MtGox, and if it wasn't a *really* good password, then it was compromised pretty quickly.

There's probably nothing mybitcoin can/will/should do about this... it's not really their fault.

Yup, I understand that fully.
But the thing is, if the hackers sent the BTCs to their accounts. They should be trackable. Idk, Well Smiley
Will have to start mining from scratch even that I dont really feel for it atm.. Smiley
Did they increase the difficulty couple days ago?

Difficulty increased this morning.

And indeed, the BTC transaction is traceable, however it's not reversible.

The info is out there in the blocks, it's just a matter of identifying where your 23.5 was, and watching where it went.

If you know what public key you used to deposit there, you should be able to trace through and see.

There's a good reason to record everything you do, down to the minutest detail.

I did that with all my transactions (recording them), then for some reason stopped at the time there was all that money to be made with NMC mining and trading. I withdrew a load of money from MT Gox the day before the site was shutdown, but the money has not been transferred to my bank account Sad I would have to stop recording things then, dumn arse!!!!!!

I have just discovered god, and now doing a lot of praying Smiley
