Just lost 190 bitcoins through Mt. Gox Today at 07:18:00 PM
     #1     Have been using it over a year but today found out someone accessed my account and cleaned it out.  Here is the response I got from Mt. Gox (not very helpful):


---------

Hello,

Sorry for the inconvenience.Please change your email address password and Mt.Gox password immediately. Please do not use the same username and password on different services. You can use the Yubikey or Software Authentication on our Security Center to further secure your accounts.

Please file a police report in order for the police to investigate the case and make an effort to retrieve your funds and once filing a police report, please send a copy of the police report and the official ID document to Mt.Gox. We will cooperate with the police authority in providing the necessary information for the investigation, but we are unable to reimburse any stolen funds.

Thanks,

MtGox.com Team

I'm trying to decide if it's worth trying to explain the police what a bitcoin is.

There is no other human being on the planet who had my Mt. Gox password... has anyone else had this problem?

If this actually happened Im sorry but you clearly were not protected enough with that many bitcoins. I dont see this as legit tho, seems more like you are trying to get credibility for a false claim and get 190 free btc. Wheres the proof?

A very fair response.  I guess it's more of a warning...

1. I did not share my password with anyone.
2. I was an active member of Mt. Gox for over a year, maybe more
3. I can show my account was accessed by an IP registered to someplace in Sweden this morning, and someone came into my account and sent about 4k USD of bitcoins into the ether.

I can prove some of the above, not that it matters, but to whatever extent it would help Mt. Gox of the bitcoin community fix whatever security hole was exploited.  I have no illusions about getting my money back.  I've learned and moved on (an expensive lesson), but I'm not a total newbie... I do think I would know if something was capturing keystrokes etc., but who knows...

Cheers

Is it possible to confirm whether you are infected with some torojian?
