DESCRIPTION OF EVENTS
"Somehow my Mt. Gox account got hacked into."
"They withdrew 10 BTC and then 10.88 BTC via IP 188.8.131.52 (China)"
"Is there anything I can do??"
"[Y]ou should know how btc works, right? there's nothing you can do, I'm sorry."
In July 2013, a Mt. Gox user had their account hacked and lost a small sum. There was no recovery possible.
HOW COULD THIS HAVE BEEN PREVENTED?
The most common threat to accounts is password reuse, or entering the password in a phishing website. Be sure to set unique and secure passwords.
