iq34acal - 20 Jan 2018
Hey guys, 

also my IOTAs were stolen, 19.01.. The TX is confirmed and most probably I'll get a shitstorm for my following comment. But if there are so many hacked accounts and the adresses are public, what is the point in changing the "snapshot" to try at least getting some of these IOTAs back. It's obvious which adresses are used to receive stolen IOTAs.The tanglesearch shows that they have plenty of incoming transaction, some of them unconfirmed, a lot of them confirmed. The money is still on the adress!!!! I also know that's in the responsibility of the end-user to setup a safe account, but the situation shows it's not that obvious and easy as many of the programmers may assume. I bought for almost all of my coins a Hard Wallet and safer them securely. But for IOTA I didn't know what to do, so I checked the internet, ended up on Youtube and followed the advice from some different videos. They didn't say anything about changing 10 characters of the seed and they recommended to use seedgenerators. For sure, I watched more than one videoe and obviously it's kind of confusing for beginners to understand everything from the very beginning. Especially if you buy more than one coin it doesn't make it easier. Maybe I used wrong key words or wrong sources but I also tried to get some infos for all of my coins from google and and and. I found nothing about that issue, but still...my fault. It's an expensive lesson for my own (and obviously also for a lot of other folks out there), but the guys behind IOTA should overthink their security settings and policies. Maybe a simple pop-up window integrated in the wallet with the most important security tips would have protected my money...not that hard to implement, everybody who opens the wallet needs to check that and get the necessary infos...Although I don't expect that somebody decides to undo the hack and send my 314.69 MIOTAs back, I'll give the thiefes and IOTA the chance to do so Wink

New Adress:
BXZLVCQV9GZMMAMANHAZCNARDD9JNWCLORAYSADLHBZFDODGDBQRTZENMWFYZTVJT9YJFKXPGCRQTKAUXJZSZRHWKC

And for all these wonderful guys out there knowng more about coins, blockchain, cryptographie then I do, hack this adress, bc my IOTAs were transfered to :

 OQRJJB9MJFOLGALRYNAUNZCRQOZGRQPHTRNGNWLPPNGETIU9JVQNRSOEICJOGLQVPLCMHEBZSHNI9UJQWQXVFENLBB

Do what you can do Smile Have a good night and thx for your support!!!

Unless there is some miracle of the century, we're not getting our IOTA back. It sucks, but there's nothing more we can do. Maybe make a police report.
All we can do is move on, report the loss and be smarter. Don't repeat these mistakes.
Trust no-one. Don't trust some random website. Secrecy is the only policy. If you think you are compromised, change your seed. 
Guess it probably doesn't hurt not to keep all your eggs in one basket too. But then again some people unfortunately used compromised seeds for multiple wallets and lost them all.
That being said I would also recommend checking your wallet multiple times through the day and keeping up to date with the news - if I'd been more tuned in, pretty sure I could have stopped it.

The IOTA foundation better get that wallet with a seed generator up and running soon already., a lot of hurt would have been saved - however even wallets can be corrupted.

Something is wrong. I just tryed log in to my IOTA seed (with one was grabbed), and is absolutelly empty. No history and transactions done. Looks like newly made and freshly seed.
Transactions on iotasearch message "Sorry, the page you were looking for doesn’t exist".

Can somebody tell me what happend?

iotastuff - 20 Jan 2018
This is a terrible situation and we can't believe that user bad practices are entirely at fault here.  It is very bad practice that a wallet would not generate its own secure seed instead of requiring an external program to do this.  Furthermore, to make users log in with their seed puts them at constant risk of key loggers and mistakenly pasting the seed into websites and chat windows.  These things definitely need to be solved ASAP.  
Please stop pointing fingers at users as this is preventing critical modifications being added to the wallet and improving security and user experience.

A snapshot was done last weekend.

Generate addresses and your balance will reappear.

Looks like mine has gone too:

and
https://thetangle.org/address/JDJFTCPKXZOUMLQJOUXRUMSGEPWGETMIDCVDOHPSGTYJDFS9XBGLCBDOHRJDFZETIINCTGCROFLUGRPV9

However, I can't even bring the history in the wallet  (using 2.5.7 - as 2.5.5 does't work anymore...).  It's like everything vanished...  Zero cross board.

Dear Admin 

Please advise if my IOTAs were indeed stolen as I see zero balance on the wallet and I see this bundle that seems to have transferred out 7Gi on 19th Jan.

Thanks for checking in.

If 1) there's an outgoing transaction in your wallet that you didn't make, and 2) that transaction was sent to an address that your seed doesn't generate, then unfortunately your funds are gone. It sounds like that's the case in your situation, but only you can verify that and know for sure.

@razimih 
I'd recommend looking at each one of your wallet's addresses on a tangle explorer to see what the history is.

@tedanton 
Thanks for the post, Antony, and welcome to the forum.

I don't know if Bitfinex allows for cancellation of withdrawals. You can speed the transaction up by finding the pending transaction in your light wallet and promoting/reattaching it a few times per day.

Thanks for posting this info. The screenshot of your wallet is simply an attached address (not your withdrawal).

The Bitfinex screenshot looks like their in the process of sending the transaction.
