One other thing I would do as well if you suspect that they had access to your gmail account is to check the filtering/forwarding settings for anything suspicious.

There are several different types of Bitcoin clients. The most secure are full nodes like Bitcoin-Qt, which will follow the rules of the network no matter what miners do. Even if every miner decided to create 1000 bitcoins per block, full nodes would stick to the rules and reject those blocks.

Did that, nothing suspicious. Thanks for the tip!

That is real risky, I better check all emails before clicking.  But it is quite hard to distinguish the real from the spoof sometimes.

One of the best deterents is to create a new email for just that one purpose. Especially in this case since it is likely that email address was on the old leaked list. Otherwise how would anyone be able to mail a phish mail to it anyhows? Atleast not one so specific.

If you're not excited by the idea of being an early adopter 'now', then you should come back in three or four years and either tell us "Told you it'd never work!" or join what should, by then, be a much more stable and easier-to-use system. - GA

If in doubt, just e-mail mtGox and ask about the said e-mail. Usually, you can see if there's any funny business by looking at the url of any links. View source of message.

Please get a Yubikey, that would have prevented this.

And sorry, I didn't mean to sound like a prick in my first post, but honestly this isn't the best place to post for MTGOX Account related questions nor should we encourage it as a community.

If you ever need help with anything MTGOX related (including getting a Yubikey for your account) go to there support page here https://support.mtgox.com/home

Why isn't it a good place to discuss MtGox account related questions?  I never go look at the MtGox forums, but I had helpful information to provide regarding this case.  Isn't that what a forum is all about?

This is by far the best place for something like this to keep people alert to the issues. I didn't even know about this phishing thing until I read this, so point taken.  Tongue

Well, in that case, I will discuss this sort of thing here. I think FlipPro just meant not to post in the general discussion section, which he was correct on. Glad my posting this helped inform someone else!
