I just discovered that there is someone who has taken all my bitcoins + sold the last to move money from one account to another.

It all happened Thursday 28.07, I've been on vacation and have only just logged into my account now to see if it had bought for $ 8 which I had set it to

All my money is gone and so is my bitcoins ..

What the hell is happening to the safety of MT Gox ...

I've now lost $ 4000 because of their incompetence.

F. ...! I'm getting tired of it.

No yuribekey for you?  I feel sorry for you but after last Mt Gox hack, you should have known better.  Responsibility comes with greater freedom.

You have not explained how it is their incompetence yet.  I understand your frustration, $4,000 is not a small amount to lose.  However, they are probably not to blame.  Do you reuse your password in multiple places (including any pool you mine at).  Is it a strong password?  Does anyone else know it?  Are you sure you don't have a keylogger or any other form of spyware?  MtGox can only do so much to prevent unauthorized access, the rest is up to you.

Most likely your fault.
Even if someone found out your login from the leak in june and used this knowledge to find out your password from some another service it's your fault you didn't create new account.
MtGox safety is limited to obvious bruteforce attempts, user database protection, their wallet protection and small stuff to keep the data you entrusted them from getting out. They reacted fast during the last crysis and limited the damage.
Everything else is entirely YOUR fault.

You're right, but I thought they had gained control of security

I have not lost $ 4000 this time.

this time it was only 119 bitcoins + approx. $ 300-400

but for their lack of security, I have since launching the lost $ 4000 because it is the amount I put in and now it's $ 0 0BTC back: (

People, this type of victim blaming is starting to piss even me off. Yes, possibly it is his fault. No, your comments are not helpful at all.

I would go straight to #mtgox on freenode and chat with MagicalTux (admin of MtGox).

The way to be secure:

Use Linux.
Use VPN.
Don't use vocabulary words in passwords.
Don't use password less than 8 characters.
Don't repeat your passwords in several places.
Keep passwords in safe place like keepassx.
Learn to differ phishing emails from original ones.

I've also did, but as you probably know so it can surely go up to 3-4 days before you hear anything from them.

I just wanted to warn others that it can happen to them too ...

Well obviously your password was compromised.

More than likely and easy PW, used it some where else or a similar variation, etc...

I doubt seriously this is some sort of mass breach or a MTGOX isssue.



I have accounts with 2 other bitcoin exchanges, and I lose not my money. So if not it should be MT Gox's probem who the hell would it be ...

it's like their website and system I use, then you must surely expect that they have mastered their shit.

What exactly are you warning us about, Not to be stupid with passwords???

why the hell are you such a fool?

I'm not saying that I have not done anything wrong, but if I have complied with all safety rules MT gox have put up with me for my password, so can not help it fail.

my password is powerband that uppercase and lowercase letters numbers and characters is the most secure code I've ever used and yet it happens that it gets broken.

password is not used any other place no one else knows it.

I went through you post history and I see you have been an asset to the community.
You helped people and projected a confident acknowledgement to and of people here.

there is nothing any of us here can do for you besides speculate and possibly console you.
The only person that might be able to help you is MagicalTux, but they offer no kind of security AFAIK when it comes to someone getting past authentication.
