    Yeah - I've done that now. Something about locking the stable after the horse has bolted... :oops:

    I still don't get how the hackers got past the e-mail thing though - I reckon the hack was at Blockchain's end.

    might be that someone who knew your email connected to the account did the thing, if someone would have entered blockchain.info DB, I don't think they would care for the accounts with holding <10 btc, more likely someone targeted your account. You can never be sure but from what you wrote, thats the conclusion from my perspective.

    You could try and contact them at blockchain.com to ask for a log with all the IP's that logged into your account, if you know the date when it happened it should be possible to look further into it.

    I don't profess to be a crypto expert, if anything, I'm at the other end of the pole.

    However, I use coinjar and every time I login, I'm sent a auth code to my mobile. This mobile is never used online. On the odd occasion when I use Chrome instead of FireFox to login, I'm sent an auth link to my email addy. But even after that's verfied, I'm still sent an auth code to my mobile, which has to be entered before I'm given access.

    Seems in this case, either your email addy has been hacked KK, or the wallet has been hacked. While you might have an infected PC (keylogger etc) I doubt it. You've not reported any other nefarious activities...

    P.S. Coinjar have a option to remember the browser for 30 days. I don't use this option. Instead, I must authenticate my credentials on every login.

    Yep, happened to me to.
    11/15/2018
    Here's the transaction ID on ETH blockchain: 0xe2cd575450954a60f273569cbcc412d03a9060c152eb5f8b2d942df88bdb1431
    Hacker transfer in and out of the address immediately.

    On that date I was traveling oversea and do not use computer, phone to check accounts.
    I have 2 form authentication enabled. To sign in they have to click an email.

    Seem like systematically hacked from the backend from blockchain.info exposed private keys.

    Good bye blockchain.info!

    Be careful folks.
