I'm freaking out.  I just checked my mtgox account and all my bitcoins are gone.  It's says they were withdrawn to paypal.  I think it got hacked.  Anybody else?

I have all my bitcoins and USD, all .11 and .49 respectively. I hope that you weren't hacked - how much did you have?

That sucks man, I hope you get your coins back. Looks like the price was lowered again - I checked the mega chart and the .9 range sales seem to be missing.

mike: I don't think that's really possible. Due to its very nature Bitcoin is likely to be used for a lot of transactions where people don't exactly want to advertise that they're buying something. Voluntary reporting systems would therefore be too inaccurate.

cryptofo: "withdrawn to Paypal"? Literally? That makes little sense for two reasons - Paypal doesn't support Bitcoins,  and AFAIK Mt. Gox doesn't support Paypal.

Selling out to advertisers shows you respect neither yourself nor the rest of us.

This is crazy, I would think if someone hacked my account they would just send themself my bitcoins, but they actually sold them then withdrew money in a way that you can't withdraw through paypal.  Worse they sold them when they were at .42.

How strong was your password?  Does anyone else who has a clue about Bitcoin have access to your computer?

No one has access to my computer, but my password wasn't very strong.  It looks like it came from this ip address 77.222.42.204 from st. petersberg russia.

I'm so depressed, imagine my surprise to log in and see that the price had almost doubled then to realize my bitcoins were gone.  Almost funny when you think about it.

It's possible that the owners of the two sites might be able to fix it, I'm not sure. They're not irreversible like bitcoin transactions, so it might happen.

I'm still worried about the suddenly disappearing entries in the orders book. There also was an entry with price 'NaN' (not a number) which could indicates a bug in data validation.
About the dictionary attack: protecting the login using a captcha might be a good idea but in my opinion doesn't replace a good password (12+ chars, good entropy).

Btw, this is my first post. Hi everybody Smiley

Yeah, I specifically don't keep anything in my mtgox account because it seems insecure, same reason I don't trust mybitcoin. I keep my own computer secured, and past that, so if I keep my wallet on my computer and have an encrypted backup, I should be good.

Unless every password looks something like this one you'll be vulnerable.  Smiley
