How is @gatehub ; who activated this account allowing this??  

I could be wrong but my understanding is that the attacker is able to obtain the wallet key from an inadequately encrypted version stored originally at Gatehub.  Once she has the keys there is nothing to stop her from doing whatever she likes with that wallet and no one can stop her unless the original owner gets the wallet rekeyed.

She? Her? Don't you dare to blame it on us!

My understanding is that is was a guy. For the rest you are correct.

What's driving me crazy is that my attackers wallet is still clearly stealing coins from others; rswQEtBU9M3bG97uVcPu5xPUsg68wo7aQc

Where you able to freeze any of your stolen funds?  What was the response from Gatehub?

No,  The responses from @gatehub were the below,

 

July 15:
"Your case has been forwarded to our security and investigations team. 

We will get back to you as soon as we receive instructions on how to proceed."

 

July 19:

"Unfortunately your account has been compromised by the attacker.

This is the wallet your funds have been sent:
https://bithomp.com/explorer/rswQEtBU9M3bG97uVcPu5xPUsg68wo7aQc

We have already contacted the receiving exchanges : HitBTC, Binance and Change.now in order to freeze any received funds from this wallet address.

We kindly ask you to do the same. 

Additionally, please report the incident to Local Law Enforcement agencies."

 

They have not responded to me since July 19, with any updates. I doubt any of the funds were frozen as the money is still moving.

So basically the hack is still ongoing, Unbelievable.  I know a few of the exchanges were responsive and some funds were frozen.  Mine were sent to ChangeNow.  It looks like there are over 500 wallet addresses still unclaimed.

If those XRP's are meant for what I think they are then bless Ripple for saving both investors and an Exchange in trouble!

I hope not. It's not Ripple's responsibility to help here
