You have malware installed on your computer.

Scan your PC and remove the malware or a more better solution is to format your PC and reinstall OS. I would also recommend you to use VM for browsing, It would help your main system from not getting infected the next time.

Sweep your wallet to a new address that was never used before on your PC, as there's a small chance that there is other malware lying around on your computer and probably got a glimpse of your wallets.

Scan and format the hard drive if necessary, use GNU/Linux, be careful when you're online. Don't download random files and always verify files from the internet. Make sure not to send or interact with any crypto wallet before you solve this.

Easy $5,000CAD for the hacker in that address, really wish we blacklisted these coins and hacked exchange coins but then that would be kinda centralized, still it would be a nice fuck you to the scammers. I rather the coins be burnt then have them cash out. You can see some of the big exchange hacked coins being move around and sold, if It was up to me I would freeze that shit. Perhaps in the future a direct digital democracy and voting council of 51% of the people using the network can do such things, perhaps even revert stolen funds back would be nice and apprehend the fucking scum bag and serve justice on their ass.

So many lives have been ruined because of assholes like this. Just because it does not seem like it is money, you are stealing honest working peoples hard earned money, scam the fucking politicians and the bankers, not the general public, be like robinhood if your going to black hat.

Anyways I hope anyone who stole someones bitcoins in the future has double stolen from them or you become the person you stole from and see it from their side, dipshits.

a more better solution is to format your PC and reinstall OS.
I will suggest to do this and if I was you then I would do that. Just format and reinstall your OS, this is the safest way. This way, you will get a clean system. Don't risk your money for some tiny mistake.

By the way, before to remove everything from your PC, make sure you have a backup of the wallet.dat file or you have the seeds written and safe somewhere or you will lose your wallet and the money of course.

DAMN it! It's free again!! PM me to rent this space.

Just format your computer. I'm personally not comfortable using a device that has been infected even in the past. Format it instead to be sure, as we're talking about hard earned money that could potentially be stolen here. Good thing you double checked before sending. Some people with infected devices are unfortunate and didn't notice the address change.

Luckily you've managed to detect it before it harms you and your funds the first thing to do is to download a malwarebyte and subscribe to their premium service and if you don't have any money or funds right now you can subscribe to their 2 weeks trial but I would highly suggest to subscribe their services it's for your security.

Also reformatting your computer would do help as well so it's your choice.

You have lucky to know this before transfer any amount to a hacker account
Do a backup and format your computer, as soon as you can and most important, try to remember what you did to get this virus or malware to not get this again

Good that you have noticed it.

If you have another laptop or PC use it if you are about to send bitcoin to another wallet. Likewise, I would advise you too to format your PC that has been affected by that malware.

Always be vigilant before sending.

Can you still remember the apps that you have downloaded? it might came from those.

k00l1, you did not write what wallet you use, but if you have backup then most safest way would be to restore your wallet in some clean device. After that do what many other users suggested you, format that hard drive partition and install fresh OS.

After that do not make same mistake and leave your PC unsecured, fact that you get this malware is saying that you do not have any protection (Antivirus / Antimalware) or you have some very bad protection.

This is one of the easiest ways to lose your btc because people usually just copy and paste the address without double checking that everything matches correctly.  In the future you need to be more careful about what you download and what websites you visit to avoid malware and viruses.

I use old laptop bought for just $40 (2.2 Core2Duo, 2GB RAM) with unique Internet connection (Via internet Dongle) and genuine windows OS, for all online transactions like Paypal, bank, Bitcoins... I don't use any anti-virus software tool. Didn't face for any security issue for last 7 years. Most importantly, I'm the only person who uses the laptop.

If possible you need to backup your files, clean it then transfer it to another pc. Format the previous pc to make sure that it is totally clean. I think it is malware that you've got. Be careful next time. Please secure your wallet and make sure that it is really clean before you transfer it again on your previous pc.

18v8Uqjt9wvEXXGbDCh9bLk15qXkFGeYmX
i have tried different address but result is same. any help

In your situation my recommendation would be to boot from a secure linux media, a thumbdrive or dvd with a live distro such as (*)Tails. There install the wallet and recover it with your seed words. Then create a new wallet, write down those new seed words, and transfer all funds to it.

Turn off the pc and do whatever it is you want to do to fix your computer, such as malware scanning, or just wipe it all like others suggest. In the future, it would do you very good if you used a better OS in the first place, but even if you do having a live iso at hand is always a must.

Please people, stop ignoring these basic security steps. Don't do your money stuff with the same OS you use for pleasure. Even if you do run something decent like Linux as your daily desktop, booting from a live image would ensure no surprises. Especially important when handling (cold) paper wallets.

* The reason i tend to recommend Tails is because it comes configured to use Tor by default, of course you can do the same with any other distro.

Get Malwarebytes installed on your machine and let it do the trick. You obviously have some malware installed in your PC hijacking your clipboard and changing it to something else. After using the said software in your computer and after the threat has been removed, run a deep scan or if you're still hesitant about the status of your PC, backup your files and reformat it immediately.

Try not to download any of them suspicious links and visit any other malicious websites as well.

Wow, whoever thought of this is pretty genius, most people would not have know that it was a different address. I always make sure to check the first 3 chars and last 3 chars of my address (usually just to avoid mistakes) but I guess it's for safety as well. Honestly you can never be too careful with this stuff, at least it wasn't an outright trojan that stole your coins.

That means your device has malware or you are copying it through a fake site. Usually if you copy through the site, they insert javascript that can change everything that is copied into their bitcoin address.

My advice is that you better use another device that is much safer, and make sure all the private keys in your old device are moved. Maybe you can use one of the applications here https://enterprise.comodo.com/blog/top-five-best-malware-removal-tools/

I don't suggest typing manually because you could potentially make typographical errors and could end you up losing your bitcoin anyway. Just make sure to doublecheck everything, just like how you did recently. Keep it up.

Also, as always, grab a hardware wallet if you hold big amounts of bitcoin.
