I have just received an email from Mt gox telling me that all my Bitcoins and Fiat funds were withdrawn.
Someone obviously hacked into my account and took everything!!
My password was very secure, upper and lowercase mixed with symbols and numbers.

anyone got the same issue? any advice on how to proceed?

The good news is that the thief won't be able to get the fiat out for months...

what he says...your dollars/euros are safe but your btc are probably SOL.  Soooo...did you use 2factor authentication?

Probably a keylogger, or successful phishing attempt.

Fucking morally degenerate thieves.

I tend to be very careful about what devices I use I let know my password, in case they are comprimised, but in this vein I use less and less of the sort of devices that might have code I don't know about running on them anyway.

Check out thease services requiring only the browser! Next fix, bugger off arbitaryScript, hello native sandboxed code on web, goodbye Chromebook, hello better Chromebook, need a printer driver update, then refresh that tab!

codepad.org
drive.google.com

Anyway, yes, it's really fucking annoying. Another good fix it to use mutiple services and spread out funds, but ultimatly it shouldn't be needed, robustness is good.

Certainly better. But if a keylogger or RAT, that won't help.

I'm not one for donations but if you must go ahead and I will keep you in mind. =)

no? sorry, why? could explain me plz?  Huh keylogger can't generate OneTimePasswords... and without OTP you can't acces to profile... keylogger can sniff only ONE password for ONE session...

It's a good idea but there is still the password loss problem, you've just got a password to generate another password each time instead, even if this is in the form of another piece of physical hardware.

2 factor may be very good, but it would still be a good idea to have robust computer systems, maybe or maybe not as well as the 2 factor.
