It's not clear what you mean since your address has no transactions and the address of the hacker is censored but I assume that someone transferred the money to that addresses instead. The sender can send the money someone else with a high fee. It's really important to do this as soon as possible because once the transaction is included in a block, you ...

7,5 hours ago your funds were moved in transaction d25efe9d5f1f2cc1fc253e4b32631fdb99870fb29b34d06fb48f43fb0de7ae92 to address 13fgTXgdyNVrq9qUxrkGzjoBVjQVZ9nKx4 which belongs very likely to bittrex.com . So the exchange might have information about the sender. I'd report it to both the exchange and the police a.s.a.p.

That's how crypto works where public key cannot retrieve private key. If you were able to retrieve the private key with public key then bitcoin would be at high risk.

"My question is, what is the solution to this going to be?" there is no solution. it is by design that collisions can be found. i really think that people who are searching for collisions are using their computing power quite inefficient because the gains are probably very small. so mining would be more profitable.

This is possible. It also may sound good on paper, but the implications are horrible. Think of it. 100 thousand bitcoin. 0.5% of all coins will be rejected. This is out of 21 million. Out of the current 15 million, maybe 0.65%. That's hugel If a hacker also wanted, he could move the coins into multiple mixers and deposit them in and out of Exchanges, as ...
