i've lost some bitcoins in the mybitcoin fiasco, and when i tried to file a claim initially i entered my original address by mistake.
i haven't been reimbursed, and now if i try enter in another address for my previous login details its says my account has a balance of 0.
does that mean its all gone?
what do i do?

So you sent your money back in to your ewallet?

I guess you'll have to contact the owner because he is the only one who can access it now.

Same exact thing happened to me. Still no coins in my wallet after almost 4 days. Please let me know how it turns out.

After the hack and fall of MyBitcoin, I'm interested in seeing what the underlying "engine" is and how the community might end up working together to make it function better. Smiley

Hard to say ;ucky or not!
As the report, some data has lost!
Lucky or not is that how much btc you lost!
In case of me, i have 3 btc
mybitcoin says i have 2 btc, and return me 0.98 btc
WTF
The ratio 49% they return for you is only appears after you accept the claim!
So you must accept it!

I'm somewhat annoyed that they will only release the engine "after the claims get processed".

Also, I am very interested as to technical details of the "hack" - because, you know, if it happened because of a vuln in the mybitcoin engine and the vulnerability isn't fixed when the engine gets released, some very rough things might happen as a thousand tiny mybitcoin wannabes rise up and get pwnt.

As for jamieshelly's specific woes, I advise going to #bitcoin-police IRC channel on freenode
They are a swell bunch o fellas.

Geist Geld, the experimental cryptocurrency, is ready for yet another SolidCoin collapse Wink

I am surprised that they aren't going to release the code until after all the transactions are completed. It seems to me that the concept of a good will gesture happens to be to show some sort of contrition for an issue. Of course, they could be staling in an attempt to determine if the flaw happens to be in the engine (or fix it.) One of the benefits of releasing it with caveat is so that an open source community could pore over it. Smiley

Or to add a working flaw into an unbroken engine Wink

The suspicion that it's a scam is always going to be there since it's just too easy to claim that we lost X% of your coins due to a hack. Yet to date it seems that none of the stolen coins were moved, so it sounds like the thief is waiting for attention to die down so nobody will be paying attention when he moves them. Since Bitcoin transfers are quite anonymous, why would an unknown thief be so concerned? Maybe once the coins start moving, we'll know who actually took them?

By the same token, it would imply that there wasn't any alleged flaw in the engine to begin with and this would be quickly discovered if released unaltered to public scrutiny. So I would delay releasing the source, then either inject in a flaw if I can find a technically plausible one OR claim I fixed the problem Wink

Please try not to remember this post when I start a AllYourBitCoin service Cheesy

One thing I don't get: If the coins were never moved (is that certain?), then wouldn't a simple backup suffice to recover them and move them to a safe place? And even if there were no backups, it's often possible to recover lost files unless the attacker made a conscious effort to overwrite them.

Also, what about adding a sort of blacklist to the client, to make sure that these coins can never be moved in the future until further action is taken?

In Windows...when you move a file, there are traces which can be recovered.
In Linux...when you move a file, you're fucked.

Their fault for not having backups.

Well, that depends. If it's really valuable, and the data hasn't been overwritten on the disk, you can usually find it by looking for patterns in the raw disk contents.

However, if they left the server running, or even shut it down and rebooted it after the supposed hack, I agree there is little chance the data is still there.
