I was shocked to see that my poloniex account got hacked yesterday, and the hacker withdrew all my BTC and LTC.

The strange thing is, poloniex used to send me confirmation on withdrawals, but not when the hacker withdrew my coins.

Please check your account and make sure you are not affected.

If you are keeping coins on an exchange, you need to have 2FA set up.

^^  THIS  ^^

If you don't you're begging people to steal from you.

You shouldn't "keep" them on an exchange though.  Only put coins on an exchange that you intend on trading in a reasonably short period of time.  You don't want to get Goxxed if/when the exchange tanks.

How much did you lose? And the hacker may have removed the emails afterwards, so you wouldn't know right?

same thing happened to me, see my thread:
https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=495565.new#new

but now I know what happened, poloniex is being DDOS'ed, as well as cryptorush.io
I had the same robberies happen at both places. They are DDOS'ing the sites, taking the login info, and, for me, stupidly, I used the same login info for my email as my login there. So they logged into my email to confirm the withdrawls.

Now I have 2 way authentication and different passwords, I HIGHLY RECOMMEND EVERYONE DO THIS RIGHT NOW IF YOU HAVENT ALREADY

He Likely did get the email typically these start with user getting malware (keylogger) Gets into exchange gets into email. Hacker comes along now has login info sells it off withdraws deletes the confirm emails immediately so they don't get tipped off. IF you ask your mail provider they can likely verify they got the email and that it has been deleted.

So only way to prevent this is Strong 2FA recommend every use it and different passwords login info on all sites.

I think it should be made very clear that this was a PC vulnerability, not an exchange vulnerability.

The exchange didn't get hacked. Your computer did. Unless you had a very easy to guess/bruteforce password.

next time don't manually type your password, use the "remember me" from google, or just scan with malwarebyte, it destroy every trojan or keylogger

I've got 2FA enabled, but when I login I currently don't get asked to enter the code - the email/password form just redirects to itself. Pretty sure password is OK as pasting it from a password manager.

+1 to only keeping long term things in your own wallet.

No, most keyloggers or rats have stored password list, so if that's the case they can get it easier from that method..

I use AntiLogger, which encrypts keystrokes.

Actually the hacker, first hacked my email and then sent forgot my password to all the exchanges I trade with.

Once he got the password reset, he basically sold all my altcoins to BTC and then transferred them to his wallet.

He also deleted all the email confirmations from the mail inbox.
I actually noticed the unable to login with poloniex couple of times, but since poloniex was wobbly at that time, i thought it was a server issue.

Altogether I lost around 6LTC and 0.06BTC

Thanks.
