Absolutely, so it's important to all of us to stay on top of security issues. Thanks

Yes, it is. And the only way to do that, in my opinion, is to keep reading and learning everyday. :)

Which means there is a huge opportunity for 'coders and programmers' to create more and more ways for us to secure our coins; the future is exciting!

Yes, indeed :)

Many hacking attempts and successes are not reported but my guess is that its so crazy. I joined Bittrex just a month ago but lost Bitcoins

I agree, as they gain more popularity, hacking will definitely increase. I try to add as much security to my accounts as possible but I don't know if that will be enough.
