So I know it's nothing to lose sleep over, but it does kind of suck to be stolen from and just sit back and do nothing about it. So I'll at least give this a go. This morning I had 12.88 bitcoins stolen from my eWallet. I understand my options are probably limited, but please help...
Here's the blockexplorer.com log:http://blockexplorer.com/address/1EAz3M77ZC4SbG8ACLa62whWAm8FKu3d6W
I definitely did not authorize this withdrawl... any help greatly appreciated.
First of all, whoever executed the transaction into that address had access to the wallet that previously held the coins. You should create a secure wallet to hold any other bitcoins you may have or expect to acquire. If you have given out addresses from the wallet, tell everyone not to send to them. You can find guidelines on wallet security. It is really hard to do right. For starters, it involves securing your operating system from malware.
A stolen coin tracker would be a nice application and not terribly hard to implement. Perhaps one day we'll have one. (I've got it on Abe
's to-do list.) Meanwhile, you can follow the money with Block Explorer. This will tell you when it may have changed hands. For example, if you see 12.88 transferred to two addresses, one receiving 4.00 and one 8.88, you may conclude that the thief (probably) spent 4.00 on something and 8.88 was the change, or vice versa. But they could just be self-transfers designed to confuse you.
Best advice is to move on.
