It's funny, if you look for "bitcoin forums" the first thing you see is a "I just got hacked - any help is welcome! (25000 BTC stolen)" thread... and you wonder why people avoid bitcoin?  Cheesy Sure, if you pay attention you never lose anything but still... reading that as first thing don't help.
Once a transaction has 6 confirmations, it is extremely unlikely that an attacker without at least 50% of the network's computation power would be able to reverse it.

You do know Google uses information they have about you to make your searches more efficient right?  Everyone is gonna get different results, particularly those who visit this forum since Google will rank sites you have visited higher.

They still do that?

Yes. And it is different for each country. I used to get that "I got hacked" thread as a top result, but now I don't even see it in the first page.

That is how their business works. This should give you the option to opt out.

I posted that on purpose, JeffK. I agree with the sentiment that each person would get a different result because of Google's algorithm. Curious, though, what would the results be if you had a brand new computer or, at the very least, search without logging into Google via a freshly installed browser you haven't used in the past.

Wouldn't Ctrl+Shift+P in Mozilla do the job?  AFAIK, Google searches are personalized based on your Web history if you are signed in, and on cookies in case you are not signed in. Search results today are affected by IP only regionally, and not personally.

I'm signed in to my google account when I use it, so I'm pretty sure it personalizes me at that level, not only by cookies.

That was exactly my point. If you wish to check non-personalized results for your geographic region, simply use private browsing mode and don't sign in.

On top of that, you are welcome to use Scroogle, ixquick, etc.  There is too much unwarranted fuss about "search bubble" and personalized search.

All I can say is that this is Bitcoin. I don't believe it until I see six confirmations.

Alright, I do get the "I just got hacked" linked as a second subentry of the bitcointalk.org (which is right on top of the list of hits). This also happens in private browsing mode, without cookies. I'm in Canada.

How can this be dealt with?
