Good to find a trader willing to not sell but to support a project. I fear most of your colleagues would think you stupid. They say " if you can't take the heat, get out of the kitchen". They forget it's not their kitchen.
By lucky coincidence, I ran Malware yesterday just after installing a .rar Opal file. I have deleted everything except my wallet.dat backup and have installed correct version from opal.com Now syncing. Thanks for the heads up.
Sorry for anyone who lost coins. Losing 100000 Opal sucks.  Angry

ANNOUNCEMENT

Due to the recent issues that have occurred. It is required for Opal to continue to be a viable cryptocurrency a roll back of the block chain must occur. We will compensate all the exchanges involved repaying the lost BTC. However for this to move forward we require the consensus of the OPAL community. Therefore a vote will need to take place and will be live for the next 12 hours:

https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1_ogq4xNJBUb3H49MH3cnMbqEufN-Ok_dHVSG7BksGKk/viewform

WHAT DOES THIS MEAN IF THE ROLL BACK OCCURS?

If you have lost any coins due to the malicious attack you will be refunded
If you purchased any OPAL during this period you will be refunded with the BTC value of your purchase.  

Opal apologise for the inconvenience this has caused but we wish to put our Community first and will not be held to ransom by hackers.

WARNING DO NOT DOWNLOAD ANY WALLETS UNLESS IT POSTED BY THIS ACCOUNT FROM THE OFFICIAL OPAL DOMAIN

But if wallet was encrypted then what can he do with it??? As long as you have a backup of your wallet.dat file then you should be ok, right??? OR am I missing something here?

Also if anyone would like to sell their OPAL then please PM me. Thanks.

I assume the exploit would have taken the private keys. That is all the attacker needs to have control over what was once your coins.
He just imports the private keys into his own wallet (encrypted or not), along with a stolen wallet.dat file, and he basically has a usable replica of your wallet. Backup will do no good then, only way to save your coins would be to transfer to another address before he does.

I understand a roll back is necessary to best deal with this situation. Do we have any idea how many coins this person had stolen? With one member saying he lost 100,000, I assume the number is quite a bit higher. In which case I agree you can't have a criminal like that in control of a large percentage of OPAL.

OPAL is young and at this stage a rollback isn't a terrible scenario, obviously in the future it would be, but I think given the short time span, and smaller number of transaction it is OK. I support it anyway.

Absolutely, that's almost 17% of total, too much for any one person to have control of, let alone a scammer who will likely dump them very soon for his 'payout', if he hadn't dumped some already, which I assume he might have.

Definitely have to always be alert in the crypto-world for now anyway, Rule #1 should be to ALWAYS be careful about what you download, double check it's source etc. But it's not hard to let your guard slip sometimes :/

We'll move on and it sounds like we'll be back on track in no time though  Smiley

Yes, some exchanges are still trading. Please have them freeze all trading to fuck this idiot. Do a rollback and make things right. There will be btc lost as he prolly sold some already but definitely not 2.5 mill worth yet. Let's show this fuck that we will not stand for this.

For those who downloaded the malware:


Kill the process csrss.exe (the bigger)
then directly windchp.exe

after it delete the startup key Win DHCP "windchp.exe" (use msconfig with command-line)

and delete file here: C:\Users\YOURNAME\AppData\Roaming\Windows\DCHP\ HERE IS MALWARES

You can also block this ip/port: 212.7.208.87:5604
