In Terraria, I'm keeping my server open 24x7. Yesterday, I was unable to play and when I joined in today I noticed that all the money I stored in one of the chest is gone(had around 60 gold coins).

I asked other players about this and they said that there was a goblin attack. I've defeated the goblin attacks myself several times and I know that there exists a NPC Goblin Thief. Can this thief steal from us? Even from chests?

Or am I being kept in dark while one of the players swindled the coins?

i think you got robbed, in my experience as a server host, never trust your attendees. – Paralytic Apr 21 '13 at 14:43
Writing a batch script to save a separate copy of "worlds" folder in my documents every 10 minutes @Paralytic ~_~ Will have to set up a password too. – hjpotter92 Apr 21 '13 at 15:51
had people hack my accounts just to give themselves items. then deny it completely event though I keep auto logs for all my servers. – Paralytic Apr 21 '13 at 19:58
Try using a piggy bank or a safe. Those keep your hard-earned gold pieces from being stolen, as only you can access their contents. – iananananan Jul 18 '13 at 5:51

No, the Goblin Thief does not steal anything from chests, despite his name.
