My funds have been stolen!

Hello,
I have a crisis! I have withdrawn (for the seventh time) to my BTC wallet.
After posting the funds (and obtaining two confirmations) – there was an outgoing transaction that was not authorized by me !! The transaction was released twenty minutes after the first confirmation – to some fresh address with no transaction history and is an RBF transaction. It’s exactly a transaction at 0.4BTC.
My BTC address from which the funds were stolen: 1CCEQxuUkb6RKQM4TDYbQemBVs2ihe45ps
Address to which funds were sent:
3DTjnTxjPnePfvg3haTyUQQeFK2riuZ1Fr
Unauthorized transaction ID: 2f79dda8aea3f06400be07f04f65b6045ba2e0235efa0bba0f6d9d6375da421c

The transaction is marked as RBF!
I use client Electrum 3.3.8
There is no option for someone to steal a private key from your computer because I watch security all the time!

Is it going to somehow stop the flow of funds or recover them?

No there’s no way to stop the transaction it’s already confirmed of almost 4 confirmations if your transaction has more than 0 confirmation you won’t be able to cancel it. But if your transaction is still zero-confirmation you can cancel the transaction by doing “double-spend” with a higher fee.

For now, There’s no way to cancel a transaction that already confirmed.

Let me ask if where did you download the Electrum wallet? You might be using the fake one.
The correct electrum URL is electrum.org if you download it to a different URL it’s 100% fake electrum that can steal all of your funds.

From Bitvan

I guess OP is using the legit Electrum as it is now on the 7th time withdrawing funds from it.

OP should think again if some mistakes might happen before that’s why someone able to breach his security.

I’m just wondering why the transaction is marked as RBF

Bitcoin transaction is irreversible.

Sad to say that you can’t do anything about it at this point. The only ‘logical’ explanation on how someone steal your BTC is that someone knew your password/privatekey. Maybe your laptop/pc is compromised with malware or you download a fake electrum app. I’m sorry for your loss and do hope that it will give you a life long lesson on protecting your crypto assets.

Sorry but your funds was already stolen and you can’t retrieve it anymore. Can you remember the software and apps that you have downloaded to your PC?

Let’s say that you have been aware of protecting your security all of the time but you probably missed some random apps that you have downloaded and didn’t noticed it as you use them.

Try to remember remember again, no one should be able to enter your wallet without knowing your private key, maybe you have accessed a phishing site or maybe your device has a security problem, there may be relatives or friends who have accessed your device, The transaction cannot be canceled because it has passed several confirmations.

Man, that really sucks. By any chance have you scanned your computer of virus? there are some malware that infect your computer and modify your clipboard and when you make a transaction these malwares replace your address in clipboard with scammer’s address. Also 2fa is available using electrum, have you enabled that? this 2fa could significantly secure your wallet from hacker.

very sad news for you, but no matter how it has happened, there is nothing you can do, I say this because I have experienced it, all my tokens are lost, if it is calculated to be more than 1 BTC, what I did at that time was just pensive . cannot be imagined and cannot be expressed .. !!
