Be smart with your shit. You had a keylogger and rat clearly on your shit. That is your fault. You can put all the security you want on anything but the best security is your brain.


But I don't mean to be hard on you, I went through something very very similar. Lost 3 bitcoins within the first month of me buying them many months ago due to my wallet.dat file being straight up stolen.

How was your wallet stolen? It would help us noobies if you expanded answers so others can learn from others mistakes. No?  Huh

i had 2 factor autentication. and also really strong password.

i think somehow they were able to piggyback my pc and dns relay to their phishing site. so i logged in and basically gave them my password.
really fuked up how i feel right now. i was going to buy an avalon tomorrow with this money. i feel fuked in the ass right now

thief info. which is basically useless now cause of the bitcoin nature. (temp wallet id)

he stole my btc to this wallet

and than directly after that to this wallet:

sorry for your loss. you should have researched and used a cold storage wallet. when you're using cloud storage, your fate is in the hands of someone else and not your own.

I would suggest doing a virus scan and checking if you were password was keylogged or something. BlockChain is a pretty secure wallet.

Really unfortunate =/ but what kind of two-factor authenticator were you using? If you use something on your phone which generates a random number with 6 digits every ~20 seconds, it takes a lot for a keylogger to monitor your screen all day waiting for you to type in the authenticating code.

Sorry for your loss. Reinstall your OS.

Good trick is test everything with small BTC sums to check if your system is clear.

Can you elaborate on what OS you used?

i was logged in already. and suddenly i was logged of.
they routed blockchain to other website. so i thought i was still on blockchain. and trying to log back in. they got all the shit they fuking needed. so me there trying to login. i got mail waller withdraw........fuck.
i checked with wireshark and it was indeed DNS reroute to other IP adress.

- going to reinstall All OSes in my network.
- change my static provider IP

problem with blockchain is its open as hell. you can follow every transaction to every wallet and see how much they have in there. and little more knowladge you can even track the user which is logged in the wallet.

look up electrum, multibit, or armory.. then you won't have to worry about anyone jacking your assets. for an newbie user, it takes maybe an hour or 2 to figure out, but in the end it'll save you a lot of worrying.

Which anti-virus software do you use?. McAfee and Norton are pretty much crap imho, heavy resource hungry rubbish who's realtime protection is meh.  I use ESET Nod32, very cpu/memory efficient, very good at blocking anything dodgy, especially when surfing different websites soon as it sniffs out something dodgy, be it a dodgy page or a dodgy ad it blocks it and lets you know.

Speaking of ads, its defo worth using adblock plus in whatever browser you use, not only does it get rid of annoying ads, but also blocks off ads with malicious code.

How was your wallet stolen? It would help us noobies if you expanded answers so others can learn from others mistakes. No?  Huh

Well the wallet is a file called wallet.dat in your appdata folder (Windows vista, 7, Cool and it can be taken if you're dumb enough to get some malware. It can be used on any computer without a problem if taken. They copied mine and deleted I guess. Such a pain in the ass.

Just know this, NO anti-virus is perfect. None. Viruses can be encrypted to go pass the virus scanner. I find them stupid anyway since the greatest anti-virus is your brain. I mean some things will just happen by accident like ransomware on a shitty torrent site or something but I rather not spend the $10(?) a month for something I feel is useless if you're smart.

put linux on a sd card or usb and format it so you run it off the removable device. Can use any wallet client. Make the wallet offline, write down address.

don't plug in your removable device in unless computer is off, make a copy of it on a fresh install of linux and keep 2nd copy in a bank deposit box or a very safe place.

use that address to receive pool payouts, lock that address to your pool acc (slush pool offers this).

only log in and connect to internet to make a transfer.

OP you should reinstall OS ASAP to avoid other personal stuff of yours to be compromised. Also, be warned the hacker knows all your mail passwords by now, so change them all.

So actually your wallet was not stolen, but some got access to your blockchain account and transferred all BTC from that wallet to another one.
Copying the wallet.dat to USB sticks does not change anything if the coins remain on an online account which is hackable/sniffable/compromiseable, etc...

For me it looks also like an attack for key logger or DNS spoofing. Your PC may be infected and other things you're doing with authentication your PC may be in danger.

Reinstall and check carefully what you're restoring (if you do so)

Why would you backup an empty wallet, or why would you backup your wallet.dat if you're using an online wallet?
Please re-read everything about bitcoin, before posting again. I doubt that you've correctly understood how everything works.

That's what I wanted to say. Thanks for the words.
PS: I know good how it works. Don't get me wrong, just because I registered now on bitcointalk does not mean that I had nothing to do with BTC until now  Wink So long...

You've expressed you're yourself very wrongly.
Keeping your BTC on your PC and then storing them offline is your safest bet.

it seems like a language barrier lol but if op refers to my post I think thats the safest way to go. Linux and offline unless you need to make transactions. Never plug in your removable device to a computer that is on/running windows. Make copies of your removable device on a fresh install on linux. If you need help setting this up PM me

Ouch...that sucks...this is why it's very important to have an up-to-date AntiVirus and Firewall program. My recommendation is Comodo Firewall and Comodo Antivirus (google them). These are by far the most updated Internet security programs I've used and they're completely free. Sidenote: you might want to check all settings for Comodo Firewall, as it can scan files in the cloud, which if you're on a data cap, could cause some unnecessary usage. My secondary recommendations are AVG and Avast, both are free and do a decent job. Disclaimer I'm in no way trying to push Comodo/AVG/Avast, I genuinely use Comodo and recommend it to anyone that's looking for a free AV.

Edit: Nevermind I read that you were already using an AV and firewall...

Having precious files or worse precious wallets on a Windows computer is almost asking to get stolen.
This remind me of my student time. If your where to plus a newly installed windows on the local network, you couldn't get the security update fast enough to have the slightest chance of keeping you system "ms-safe".

Sorry for your loss man..
The way i do is the follow.. I backup my appdata/roaming/multibit and program files/multibit to some usb and when i want to do a transaction i put the maps on my pc and after the transaction i delete it (also the trashcan). In the beginning i had an account on blockchain, but wasnt really related to something.. just registered without any use but i forgot the pass there.. is the account on blockchain important? and do i use a proper way of backup/using?

It seems that he entered his username and password in a phishing site. Doesn't matter in how many accounts he is using the same pass.

I had 3.6 bitcoins stolen from my mt gox account before the security update requiring verification etc. The biggest tragedy for me by far is selling 650 btc for $20 a piece in feb. AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Try using a separate computer that is not online all the time to store your bitcoins, and also backup the wallet .dat file ( maybe on a usb drive). Do not leave your computer on unattended, I have seen my computer "surf" the web on its own, so people know how to use your computer when you're not there.

Another trick is to use several wallets you belive to be secure, ie. store the bulk of your coin offline and have some in a "hot wallet" for spending. But thruth be told, I recommend not spending bitcoins for a while, would like to see the price hit $10,000 or more per BTC. Refer back to this post when that day comes and be like "yeah, $10000, sweet, glad I stored my coins for a loooong time"

What you wanted to say is how dangerous bitcoin can be when their owners are not careful.
It sounds like you downloaded some crazy shit, and got a key-logger on your computer.  That's the fault of your own./

as said here before, the best security is to keep the password only in your brain,
and beside that, bitcoin is now going main stream, that will mean people will need more and more security, i am sorry for what happened to you, i think people need to be more aware now of their computers as money holders, that is, if we dont want it in our bank..

The most secure client would be armoury i just set it up - it took 2 to 3 days for it to sync up.  You can also use it to start a cold storage system.  It also helps to use another os (linux) as they are alot harder to hack.  Theres even a page on how linux is more secure on ubuntus website.  It sounds like a man in the middle attack - hope this thread helps show people that online wallets are unsafe for large amounts of money.

If your password is strong then this means your computer is most likely compromised,what type of anti-virus are you using?
it's true that bitcoin is irreversible and this is why paper wallet offline are recommended for money you don't intend to spend immediately.

There are viruses on linux and android isn't linux per se it's just based on the linux kernel.
