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./

Well something like that happened just 2 days ago for thousands of bitcointalk.org accounts. Ofc it was a dns server side hack but still anyone can fall victims of hackers no matter how clever they think they are.

Can you explain more in detail? You mean thousands of people enter into the wrong website?

I wouldn't trust your wallet on any external server, even encrypted. Do frequent checks on your PC or media that you're storing your coins on.Keyloggers, well they say common sense is the best anti virus...

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.

I agree, hardware wallets might be solution to average people, but still not available...

 no password is secure. especially when you're on line.  The biggest drawback with passwords is the fault of the owner.  Undecided

when are people gonna learn?

USE linux, there's no viruses for linux

keep your coins stored on a wallet on YOUR computer

NEVER trust a website with more than .01btc unless you plan on using it very quickly

I feel sorry for you and I'm afraid this would happen to me as well. Coldstorage and sweeping the drive for malware/virus as often as possible. Try to see it from the bright side, it wasnt more! :O

It may sound ironical, but newbies really should not use Windows.
