Lost half a bitcoin today due to a virus (likely a chrome extension) that changed withdrawal address on paste.

Here it is in action.https://ift.tt/2HOhyOh double check the address in binance confirmation email, learned a very expensive lesson. Living up to my nickname.Funds went to https://ift.tt/2rn2Oe7 first, then to https://ift.tt/2KBctGM “feature” – https://ift.tt/2rn2w71 safe.EDIT:Some people found the post confusing. Here is what happened: I wanted to withdraw funds from binance, copied the destination address. Malware on my PC changed the destination address to the address of the thief. Didn’t check the address manually because why would there be any bitcoin address in my clipboard other than the one I just copied. Confirmed the withdrawal and it went straight to the thief.
