Great safety tip. Could just have an entire pc that sits in the corner with linux on a CF drive instead of all the live CD part.

WHat about mtgox is that a good place or safe enough to keep coins in.  I figure its safe considering they are the largest.  What are your thoughts on how safe is it to keep in mtgox or blockchain or bitfloor or any online service

People are just ridiculous when it come to the security of there pc's ,They could just keep the data in a flash and use it with a disconnected computer with the bigger wallets and have a small wallet for day-day payments.

I think most of those pages are filled with "Great post!" and "Thanks!", so you won't miss much by not reading them.

OK, so I'm currently running Windows 7, should I feel more secure running a linux distro such as Ubuntu within VirtualBox for my wallet? Maybe put the iso in a Truecrypt volume in Windows, or have a Truecrypt volume in the Linux image to hold my wallet. Just thinking out loud, want to avoid having to boot into a different sysem to keep it easy and quick.

Is easier than that... Just go to online sha512 encoder, put a word you can remember... Then go to online sha256 encoder and paste the sha512 code... Now go to blockchain.com import/export/add new private key and paste the sha256 code... Now erase the bitcoin adress and there you had, an ultra secure adress than you can remember and access without wallet.dat o pappel copy.

Thanks go to the OP!

I will just briefly describe my process and maybe any experienced folks can let me know if I stuffed up somewhere.

So

1. downloaded ubuntu and put it on usb drive.
2. reboot pc into ubuntu.
3. download bitcoin-qt
4. generate addresses and send them to myself on email
5. find wallet.dat file and copy it to two 32mb sd cards and one usb drive.
6. restart computer.

was the bitcoin app supposed to finish synchronizing with network?

also im planning to have a day to day wallet on my phone, is there any danger in using the savings address to recieve payments online, if im not planning to buy anything or use it it makes sense to skip one extra transfer and seems safer no? (probbly sounds stupid but still getting my head around how all of this works).

Will this process work on a Mac OS X 64bit running Lion?
What about using a Virtual OS with VirtualBox? We can download and install the client on there and only be able to access it through the use of Virtual Box. Furthermore we could download and install TrueCrypt on the Virtual OS and encrypt and save the wallet on a usb drive. Or am I wrong.

Has anyone tried something similar to this?
I notice that most tutorials are for Windows or Linux users so I'd like to know if there's anyone that can help me secure my file on a Mac. Any help is appreciated. Thanks.

You can enable full disk encryption in System Preferences (it is called FileVault 2), which is more than enough if you are worried about your computer being stolen.

If you are thinking of using a Virtual Machine as an isolated environment, bear in mind that any malware running on your Mac would also be able to see into the VM. You would probably be safe enough storing large amounts in a paper wallet, and using Electrum or Bitcoin-QT for general spending money.

Agreed. No matter what you do, there will be a way through, if one has the time... or the persistence.

When I read all this, I believe that the next war will be between "cryptocoin" and "cybercrime".
And government will be on site of cybercrime.

Virtual Box and a mounted truecrypt volume is not safe enough, because worms are able to collect your wallet when you are using it. Fully separated system provides better security.
