Please copy\paste web site adress of etherwallet that you are using for this, maybe you use some scam sites looks like myerther.

That would be my belief as well.  To OP... did you use a bookmark to get to MEW?  Did you manually type it in... or did you click a link in an email or on a website?  I've seen a few posts about losing coin from a MEW wallet but I've yet to hear it official that it was 'hacked'.

**as a side note, if you clicked a link from a website, it'd be beneficial to post that here so others can be warned.**

Seem like a huge amount. Whether you're account was compromised or you mistakenly sent those ether to someone else, don't expect that to be returned because I don't think someone in todays generation, he ev3n consider it a blessing like god works in a mysterious ways.

stolen funds is very alarming. Have you transact this few weeks? In etherdelta or something? My friend deposit ebtc in etherdelta after a day he lost his ebtc funds and also some coins in his etherwallet.

It may be due to some where mistakenly miss handling of private key .  So always secure your private key at secret place never place it in google drive.

very alarming better to make sure to double check the website hackers are just around the corner waiting to attack in any chance that they've got, better to
make sure everything are correct before hitting the send option, I will wait for any updates regarding to this matter as I have some token from my wallet
inside MEW.

This is what worry me, i put my Ether in MEW, and the secret key in my pc. If somehow someone find out my secret key, they can transfer money to any account. I think you shouldn't put your secret key file in the pc. Save it in USB or something.

It could be some sort of virus, I'm pretty sure I've heard of that in the past.

A simple script such as:

If clipboard == -ethereum address format-:
   use -this address- instead

Also, isn't there a better way than to store your ETH online? I wouldn't trust a website even if I created it myself haha.

Wipe your computer, buy a Trezor. I'm sorry to hear about your loss man.

I agree with Zaoxhou that you may download any wallet or cryptorelated software, together with your download and install you will install malware in your PC. I lost about 1000 USD or my token few month ago, and now I use new notebook. I never click slack suspicios links and download cheap fuck new airdrop coins.

This is worrisome and scary at the same time. But according to what you wrote up there, you said you were send to your other wallet, and you open both wallet? Why would you do that!

I heard there was malware going around that modifies your clipboard when it detects a Bitcoin wallet address. So when you copy a wallet address it's different when you paste it. Did you check if the address you pasted was the one you intended to send your ether to? Maybe there is a similar malware for eth.

That Address has taken in $22K in ether over the last few days.  Sucks that people are making money like this.  

Over the last fews days I've seen a ton of phishing emails/websites mimicking myetherwallet, with slight spelling differences, like myeitherwallet, or myetheirwallet ... are you sure you didn't click on a scam link?

I see a lot of comments about how concerning and scary this is, but to be honest... I don't feel it.  Based on my experience here, most 'hacks' are due to either a compromised system or user error.  I'm not saying that's the case here, but if you get fearful for every post of missing funds then you should really get out of crypto and put your money in an insured bank.
