Of course, a class action lawsuit and of course not limited to Germany, but he should be familiar with German law and the same with the subject of cryptocurrencies. @OpenMedia Do you have a recommendation?

Hello,

I´ve got 186,6 Miota stolen. They were send to this adress:

UNXQSN9DOEYHUKNPCEQZWLDBDPNURKLSFEZYWIYNGRBMSZEWOFTCTOVDZCUU9YQPRNKNPYEJRCIT9PKHWZDOYPWKGW

It´s a shame the Iota foundation does not seem to care a bit about this mess. So how should anyone have trust in such shitty crisis management...

I lost my IOTA to this transaction

Those already happened in November, not sure if they’re related to the recent thefts.
But the funds don’t seem to be transferred to an Exchange yet, so @Winston @rajivshah please blacklist:

Let's encourage all victims of the recent theft to consider the pursuit of legal action against the thief. Since this event is outside the scope of the IOTA Foundation, users are either going to have to individually or collectively proceed with litigation (or at least some sort of involvement of law enforcement authorities). It's easier if everyone works together.

That may seem daunting right now, so to make the process easier for everyone, let's leverage the power and breadth of this community to gather as many details about the situation as possible. Hopefully this can help elucidate the scope of yesterday's event, as well as encourage more of us to get involved with potential litigation. It might be a long shot, but let's at least attempt to retrieve stolen funds and ensure that justice served.
-----------------------------------------
Currently known details of the situation:
Here's a wonderful summary of the situation, written by Ralf -- https://medium.com/@ralf/what-happened-last-night-on-iota-b6157ade1e03
On January 19th, 2018, some IOTA users lost their funds to an unknown attacker.
The root cause that allowed this to happen was users who chose to rely on online generators to create their seeds.
From what I’ve heard, many users who lost their funds created their seeds at iotaseed.io (not linked here for obvious reasons). Chances are, the folks behind this and potentially other seed generators have sat tight for a while, collecting piles of seeds, though the actual numbers of users affected are not known to me. The fact, that iotaseed.io is still online at the time of this writing might suggest that the site got compromised itself, and its not the folks behind the service who ran the attack.

Let's help the exchanges to blacklist the thief's IOTA addresses which currently hold the stolen balances. I'll keep this list updated as more people post addresses:

=============================
Please post the address to which your stolen balance was sent.
We can contact the exchanges and attempt to have these addresses blacklisted before the thief is able to move from IOTA into another currency. Time is of the essence.

Also, let's try to look into the details of this situation as much as possible. If you decide to take legal action, please also post with advice for others who are considering doing the same. Let's all help each other out. The thief will get away with this if nobody decides to take action.

This is the address where my stolen IOTAs was sent to:

https://thetangle.org/address/RCMBGJZDXKERJWLYEUEZYPYZQSS9OWESYVMFZTZRRHEFPGLRPDQLS9HQGJKTIEKVTVPFAQTYOOVFLMXR9

Please, add it in the OP.
I hope these criminals will get what they deserve!

Hi Everyone,

I lost 1.9 GI to this address: YXRCTAVQTU9OSQBI9NYARSLBMATKROHJHCRX9IIPTMXXGFLDCOR9PIWDPCGTAGXZBYUPXUXRWZIK9GEBWIUHATXWMZ
The hash is: IPFY9EQJXQTBSAQEQVOOARKZPLQGXTRHOHWXUCPLAQWZMPSDQGKJJBUVBRKALUVCRRJJ9T9BAGLZA9999

The transfer is confirmed.

Is there anything one can do about?

Thank you for posting! Checked it and this one leads to a bundle that's been indentified before.

SPIEGEL, one of the most read news magazines in Germany and whole Europe, might publish a story about the theft. I've contacted (and received an answer) from a journalist who reported about IOTA recently.

The reporter needs someone who has been robbed to tell the story based on that very person (it's more interesting that way for the reader, I guess)

Is there anybody from Germany here who was robbend and wants to cooperate with him and tell his story?

If he doesn't find anybody else and decides to publish a story, I'd do it myself, but I'm not very keen on that.

@Winston @rajivshah Checked it, it leads to the following bundle (worth 108.3 Gi). I've suggested the Output for blacklisting already as well as some of the Inputs, but it's all still pending...
We'll should monitor this bundle and as long as it's not confirmed I suggest all the Inputs for blacklisting:

Wha doesn't IOTA shut down the Tangles/Notes to avoid further transfers??? Then they could clean up the mess. Most of the Tangles are still aktiv and running.

Thank you everyone for all of the information that you've provided so far. The OP has been updated with every address that has been posted. Huge thanks to @Alexa who has done a great job of highlighting the blacklisted addresses in this thread.

Some posts in this thread have shown a concerning lack of understanding of the current situation, so let's clear up some of the misunderstanding before we go any further:

Here's one such concerning post:
"Since IOAT is no longer responding to the many loss reports I do not know if IOTA is still active, or those responsible have already settled in the Bahamas.
I do not think IOTA voluntarily admit their mistake and refund our money. Therefore, we will need legal assistance. Does anyone know a lawyer (best from Germany, because jurisdiction is probably Berlin) who can represent our interests to IOTA? Otherwise, tomorrow I will contact some to see who can best represent us."
------------------------------------
1. I am just a volunteer who spends my free time answering questions and helping out where I can.
2. Nobody presides over the IOTA protocol. It's simply open source software that's available for anyone to use. 
3. The IOTA Foundation is a small software non-profit foundation. The Foundation's scope is very narrow - it only does software development and business adoption. Legal action is completely outside of this scope, and it has been clear from the very start that the Foundation itself will not be able to pursue any legal action on behalf of victims of this theft.
4. It's important to reiterate the fact that the IOTA Foundation cannot pursue legal action in this case, and that any legal recourse is wholly dependent on individuals in the community. Please consider hiring a lawyer, reporting this crime to the authorities, and even banding together to form a class action lawsuit. Lots of people have been impacted by this, and there's strength in numbers.
5. The focus need to be on helping to figure out intricacies of the legal process and tracking down more details surrounding the criminal. A few of the IOTA higher-ups can make sure to report all of the blacklilsted addresses that have been compiled, but it's up to all of us (the community) to start looking into legal action against the criminal.

I think most people understand that the IOTA Foundation is a benevolent bystander in this whole thing, but the few posts seeking retribution from the Foundation are concerning nonetheless. As frustrating as this situation is, it's definitely understandable for people to be upset and lash out at everything/everyone involved. But let's try to make sure to focus our efforts on the task at hand - that is gathering details about the criminal(s) running the scam seed generator sites and beginning the process of legal action against said criminals.
