Hi everyone,

I just had a few btc stolen from my account on MtGox. I assume it's not possible to get them back .. but what does that hack mean for the rest of my computer? Should I be worried about accessing other sites, mail, facebook, Online banking (!) ??

Is there a virus on my computer? I'm using a mac, so if yes what should I best do against it?

thanks in advance everyone

Hello nichtsoklug


I assume you got a Rat (Remote Administration Tool) that's one of the most used tools to get information from peoples computer.

1. Go and install an antivirus (If it doesn't detect anything then to be sure reinstall your computer)
2. Go to another PC and change all the passwords on the sites your registered to.
3. The answer to your question regarding if its possible to get a refund then (No its a non reversible currency)

But I would go and contact MtGox Regarding This problem. What the amount of btc stolen if we are talking 5+ then they might do something about it.

Well you can download avast or sophos Antivirus and scan your pc but i doubt your pc is infected. I am sure your id/password got leaked from some rouge site or you did login on some unsafe pc.

Do you use the same Login/password as other sites?

That's one of the many issues i've seen come up.  People use the same the email/password for all of their accounts, so if you were to enter on some fake site to mine your data, they can easily access your other accounts.

I did a malware scan with virus barrier express without results. also downloaded sophos and will run that later.

but it seems more likely that someone got my password without malware... I actually remembered that once all my contacts in my e-mail acc got spam mails from my address, and at that time I think I used the same password for mtgox. I'll just change my passwords and hope that will be fine

thanks for your help guys!
