Do you see any attacks that I haven't thought of?
Would it be in the swap space somewhere unencrypted?
Bitcoin mining is now a specialized and very risky industry, just like gold mining. Amateur miners are unlikely to make much money, and may even lose money. Bitcoin is much more than just mining, though!

Yes, that's true. That should be mentioned. I don't use swap for that reason myself.

But some footnotes:

- If Bitcoin is implemented properly, it wouldn't store keys in swappable memory.
- Swap should be encrypted anyway - but that makes hibernation more difficult.

Misspelling protects against dictionary attacks NOT
