@damian19
It looks like the stolen outgoing transaction has confirmed already, unfortunately.

Taking a look at the inputs to the stolen bundle, your two addresses were:
https://thetangle.org/address/UCOVDRYTVJL9KTZISXGKDKBXHKA99ONUWYLVUAUTTEF9JTHIVDETKQKPXHHRPBKHFGVNVFHSOEYTHPXRY
https://thetangle.org/address/KLZGZYVURXMMIZKNAPEXKFWKVSMMKEWRYPIRZQKXQV9COWELLWZQVZTPHZELTIIEVCCVHGJURKPCTGGOW

I don't see any incoming transactions on either of these addresses. (and I don't think the thief will be sending your funds back unless compelled by litigation

I also lost all my IOTA, though compared to some users that lost theirs, mine is not that much, just 111 Miotas. Still, losing that amount makes me quite sad, as I bought them when the price was below $1 and I was willing to hold the coins for a long time because I believed in the project.

Well, it was partly my fault due to using a website  to generate my seed, the website (i.e. https://iotaseed.io/) used was posted on the IOTA's official forum, so I thought since it was posted there, it should be legit. Seems I was wrong.

I blame IOTA foundation partly for not making the desktop wallet as user-friendly as possible and not policing their forums properly. Aside from IOTA, I'm holding other coins as well in desktop wallets, I don't have this security issue with their wallets and I'm holding a lot of other coins.

It's so unfortunate, I actually believed in the project as I saw how practical it was in solving everyday problems. I saw it as a coin that has a very high chance of being adopted by the masses. Well, I would not be buying and holding more IOTAs, I'm starting to lose faith in the project.

Thanks for stopping by to post your story. I'm really sorry to see this happen, and I understand your sadness and frustration right now.

So there is absolutely nothing that can be done?
Surely there is some kinda of thought given or fraud to theft by those conducting themselves in the tangle?
A mass of users was just robbed (including myself) .. someone must have thought of a plan of action in that case to support in getting things back.
No?

The whole point of a decentralised system is to remove central control by a single entity.

It would surprise me very much if someone was able to do something.

Maybe a class action and an investigation via some sort of Interpol group. But you’ll have to check with a lawyer about that stuff. I know nothing about it.

I do wish something could be done. On a human level I really feel for everyone who got scammed.

On I final note I want to stress that it’s not the technology that is flawed. It’s not user friendly which gives an unfair advantage to more technical people. Allowing scammers and thief’s many ways to work with.

Those need and will most likely be plugged in the future.

I know... doesn’t help the guys who got ripped off today...

@fvantom: I totally agree with you, but also in a decentralized system there should be a mechanism to avoid or undo situations like this. Several (I don't know hundreds, thousands, ten thousands ...) accounts were hacked and it's public where the money went to..all adresses with our money are public. Isn't there still an inner circle/ round table or whatever of the founders of IOTA, the full nodes and so on who can take decisions? Based on my limited knowledge the decentralized system should be able to take the decision that this is robbery and undo the transactions before the thieves change the IOTAs for fiat currencies. Change the snapshot...founders also have some responsibility.

@iq34acal, I doubt that will be happening. I will be pleasantly surprised if it does, though.

Hi IOTA fans,
Being a big supporter of the Tangle, I invested in IOTA too. No need to repeat all the posts above... My IOTA's got stolen too. Someone is clearly getting rich over our backs. Modern day theft!! At the time I was a novice in crypto currency and used the seed generator that was, at that time recommended by IOTA itself. Nevertheless, I can only blame myself for using the iotaseed seed generator without questions (or adaptations to the seed).
?However, I do agree with all comments about the quality of the wallet. So IOTA foundation: get your act together and professionalize the wallet. It shouldn't be so hard to make IOTA compatible with off-line wallets like the Ledger Nano S. This works great for a lot of crypto currencies. Alternatively allow for 2 step verification of some sort, like other crypto's and various exchanges got down pretty solidly!

In the meantime, I keep the faith in the Tangle. It would be great to see the foundation actually using it's intellectual head-start instead of getting into all sorts of vague projects with big corporations. Make sure you've got a reliable spaceship before you fly to the moon...??

Thats another adress that my 509 Iotas was send.This time it is confirmed.Have i lost my Iotas?

@paulpoison
Unfortunately if the transaction is confirmed, and your seed doesn't generate the address that now holds your balance, then yes those IOTA have been stolen. Really sorry to see this.

Hi Everyone,
While we are all in this together, I highly recommend to not accept help via direct or private messages. We've seen scammers join our community, offer help, just to then send the pending transactions to their own addresses, instead of rescuing them.

In a decentralized world, trust is difficult. There is no central authority which vests users. So even those, offering help, could have bad intentions.

My advice: Join the #help channel over at Discord and make sure, help is provided within the boundaries of that channel. This at least increases the chance, that honest eyes are going to recognise should anything shady happen. No guarantees but increased chances.

Hope we get through this soon.
