This is a great thread.  I was already using encryption and generally being really careful (I thought) despite my nearly non-existent level of coins.  But reading this has opened my eyes to a few security threats I hadn't really considered, and given me a better insight into both why and how "cold storage" is such a good idea.

Thank you, OP.

If I've been able to help out, donations are always welcome.

Well that is the point of this thread. I somebody gets a copy of your unencrypted wallet.dat they can copy it somewhere else and have access to your funds for ever Smiley. Only way to avoid that is creating the wallet on a clean installed system without a persistent file system (ie: Live CD) and copying the wallet.dat to a memory stick or pendrive that would never be use in your day to day computer.

As the objective of this is creating a savings account what you do is take note of the addresses created in the clean system and send your bitcoins to those address from your regular computer. When you want to take money from your savings account you load a clean system again (Live CD once again), load your backed up wallet.dat, send your money to wherever you want and shutdown the system without leaving a trace.

Hope this helps.

Hugs,
D

Great advice, this is something that I plan on doing, though maybe not going as far as will because I will most likely have much much less bitcoins on my wallet, and as a result, it is not as much of a necessity. I however disagree with you where you said a backup is useless, because if your harddrive crashes and you only had one copy of your wallet, then a backup will be useful. It may not make your wallet any more secure, but that does not mean it won't be useful.

Nice read. I personally have prepared an USB stick with bootable Debian pre-installed with TrueCrypt and Bitcoin.
