    If you're using the official SIA coin wallet then it's very unlikely that your wallet itself got hacked. Chances are you may be a victim of a phishing scam or there was simply an error that occurred. However in any event can you please provide the details of that transaction so someone can look into it?

    Possible reasons:

    1. You sweep your wallet to another wallet.
    2. You port forwarded port 9980 thus exposing siad to the Internet and someone transferred out the 35K because they can access your siad from the forwarded port. (Never port forward port 9980 or this will happen)
    3. Malware.
    4. Someone have physical access to your computer while your wallet is unlocked.
    5. You transferred the amount.

    Do you have any anti-virus on that computer? Why do you have Sia UI on a primary computer connected to the network? I would suggest for future keeping Sia UI OFFLINE on an OFFLINE hardrive/flash and only opening it to update the wallet every so often (I do it about once a week) Again, check for any virus/malware. Getting into a wallet is not easy, the encryption is scary. Best thing to do is check for malware/viruses.
