Thx, together with the wiki link very good info!
There are several different types of Bitcoin clients. Server-assisted clients like blockchain.info rely on centralized servers to do their network verification for them. Although the server can't steal the client's bitcoins directly, it can easily execute double-spending-style attacks against the client.

Great guide, will definitely help out a lot of people who don't realize that BTC is the digital equivalent as cash, and needs protected as such.  Myself, I keep my wallet.dat on dropbox so it's accessible from the cloud, but that's more as a "checking" account (that's empty atm).  I'll definitely use the print and lock up method for my future savings account.

Make sure your wallet.dat is in an encrypted volume of it's own.

awesome post, you must protect against physical loss as well as hacking. keeping your wallet on a single laptop hard drive with no backup is just suicide

personally i have mine on a virtual machine hosted in a secure datacenter with storage on a raid array AND backed up in 2 offsite locations, i'm still paranoid about it :-)

Someone needs to make a tool specifically to make it fast and easy to create paper Bitcoin wallets.

What would be the most reasonable way to secure a wallet(in terms of the effort it takes to accomplish it)?

Thanks.  I use a "paper" wallet in the sense that I don't really print out the private key, I just store it encrypted.

I use bitaddress.org to create some key pairs and send my BTC to them. Then I'll take the info and store it in a keepass entry. I also put the info into a csv which went into a truecrypt volume that I emailed myself and stored in Dropbox. I'll eventually print a hard copy one day when I get my printer to work.

I would not ever keep the info on a single or even multiple flash devices as those are prone to failure.
