Reformat your machine from scratch,
don't touch warezinstall a linux distro, use an encrypted wallet and make sure you understand RPC settings!
Now should be better.
wow really, someone that left rpc open would somehow be protected if they used linux?
No. Of course not. But it would for sure treat his warez addiction, if he has one
I didn't strike the part where it says he must understand RPC settings, did I?
And his RPC wansn't open per se. It had a username and password, alebeit a weak one. Also he didn't say if the RPC port was forwarded in the router, which it might not be.
I suggested that it could be the problem, but there is no evidence. More inclined to think it's malware for the time being. My whole point on asking about RPC was to try and save the dude some time on a OS reinstall that might not be needed if RPC proved to be the problem.
