E-Gold doesn't get hacked. It's stupid people accessing it on insecure windows PC's. A friend of mine lost $1000 a few days ago. Turns out he had 14 keyloggers on his system.
Do yourselves a favour. Download a linux livecd like Gentoo (http://bouncer.gentoo.org/?product=g...-livecd&os=x86
) and access your egold with it. It just boots up in a secure, read only linux system without installing or writing anything to your hard drive.
I run linux anyway installed on my system but if you don't want to go that far, the livecd is a good alternative. Linux is immune to these keyloggers.
