1  Bitcoin / Electrum / million dollars stolen from Electrum user on: July 13, 2014, 12:27:54 PM
No fault of Electrum at all (I love it), but the guy puts Electrum seed in plain text and keeps it in drop box folder. Really!!

2  Other / Off-topic / A hack to steal steal your Gmail password? on: January 17, 2014, 12:56:59 PM
A few days ago (luckily) I read a PDF document that described a vulnerability in several password managers (like 1Passwprd, lastpass) that when they see say  "google.com" domain they will autofill gmail's password field and user name  (even if the fields are hidden on page) and when the user clicks on "continue"  or "vote" (if it was a poll  on the psge) the  passwords are sent to the hacker.

So today on twitter I saw this guy  

https://twitter.com/CoinMKTCap

giving a link to this page hosted on google.com

(be careful before clicking anything on the page)

https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1IZf5cBivam_93zENT_arFFuvWDidHGjWxoTMVmFSoWg/viewform

Now why on earth would this be on docs.google.com if this is anything legitimate? Why not on your own site?

Right click and "view source" and I do see things like on the page:

^(focus|focusin|submit)$/i,r=/^(input|textarea)$/i,s=/^password$/i,l=!!("placeholder"in x);l|

If this page steals gmails passwords (and I think most likely it does), I would have fallen for this  -- for sure --had I not read PDF that describes the hack just a few days before

A new site, but hopefully someday it will have as much content as clips4sale Smiley


4  Bitcoin / Electrum / Security Question on: November 23, 2013, 03:24:50 PM
Hi,

Just a question

I know that the master seed is created randomly with 128-bit entropy. All the private and change keys are derived from the master seed; so all your keys are related to each other in some mathematical way.

Now, if someone sends bitcoins to internal private key, would it be possible someday (theoretically) that some hacker who looks at the transaction between two of your internal keys on blockchain would be able to figure out the private keys because of that mathematical relation between the two keys?

Has this been looked at deeper? So lets say the transaction happened between 2 keys that were connected by publicly known mathematical function (as is the case with Electrum keys).  Could this create a security hole?

6  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / 10,000 PPcoins on: November 13, 2013, 09:47:07 PM
I want to buy around 10,000 PPcoins.  Any safe way to do it without going through btc-e process?  I don't have BTC coins anyway to do the exchange.  It's been 5 days since I have been waiting for coinbase to confirm account.  We can do it in smaller amount overtime too to minimize risk.
 
I know I don't have history here, but I have  been doing online commerce for years (long feedback on ebay). I can do anything from Amazon gift, to amazon payment, to paypal instant payment, to pyaza, etc.
