That passphrase encryption probably saved you I'm guessing. I use BitDefender on my computer, and have an advanced router setup. On my old computer I had a program that let me know when my computer sent outgoing data and if it detected an interval of which the data was sent to help pinpoint a virus. After my hard drive crashed on the computer (probably because I dropped it way too many times) I lost the program and have been unable to find it. I also use Process Hacker in place of Task Manager because it gives plenty of data. I also never do any banking off of my Bootable USB running Tails. I use my Ubuntu USB when I'm fed up with Tor. I use Spyshelter to hedge against keyloggers (disabled its firewall. Bitdefender's is better). Lastly, if I feel I have something, I use malwarebytes in safe mode to find it. Pretty good setup if you ask me. I use my Windows partition for gaming and endless browsing, but use my Debian Linux partition for hacking and stuff. I plan to eliminate my Windows partition and switch from Debian to Ubuntu when I receive my ASIC.

Thanks for this guide.its nice to be secure.
And security has to be proportional to the size of the wallet.
No need to get paranoid if someone has a small wallet.
Bigger the investment (time,money e.t.c)  bigger the measures for extra security need to be  Smiley

I haven't found much in the literature regarding t-of-n secret sharing whereby one might save a wallet such that having up to t-1 of the secrets maintains security, but that any t together will unlock it.

I'm thinking in terms of maintaining redundancy (losing your wallet doesn't make you SOL if you still have other pieces) while still having security (a paper wallet is still secure if somebody stumbles on one part of it.

Thank you for this. It's pretty simple, but makes it easy to get started in cold storage.

excellent advice - I always wondered how I could mitigate the risk of my house burning down

It's only after we've lost everything that we're free to do anything.

Thank OP for such helpful thread.
For those OS X users out there. I recommend making a new disk image (DMG).
In the creation options simply specify the new image should be encrypted and password protected.
Everything else is a pice of cake.
