There is a (new?) trojan wallet stealer out in the wild ATM.

Plenty of script kiddies and scammers are going to be trying to get you to download and install it, what's more they'll be putting posts to do so (using lies obviously).

Don't install anything linked to on this forum, unless it's been found by someone with a good reputation to be legit. Assume everything is an attempt to steal your wallet.

You should also encrypt your wallet when not in use.

Here is a portable apps version http://www.freeotfe.org/downloads/FreeOTFEExplorer_3_51.paf.exe

You have been warned.

Nefario

I use dsCrypt. it's easier and its only 24kb

How easy is it to relocate the directory where the bitcoin wallet is found?

I have a small list of utilities I use in my windows systems:

Its been said before. NEVER TRUST LINKS IN THIS FORUM. ESP FROM NOOBS LIKE ME

EnCryption:

TruCrypt -  http://www.truecrypt.org/  - The Best Free open-source disk encryption software for Windows 7/Vista/XP, Mac OS X, and Linux

AES Crypt  - http://www.aescrypt.com/ - AES Crypt is a file encryption software product available on several operating systems that uses the industry standard Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) to easily and securely encrypt files. Simply right-click to encrypt/decrypt.

Utilities:

Eraser 5.3 - http://oldversion.com/download-Eraser-5.3.html - http://www.tolvanen.com/eraser/
Eraser is a secure data removal tool, which allows you to remove sensitive data from your hard drive by overwriting it with carefully selected patterns. Use it when "delete" just won't do.

SandBoxie - http://www.sandboxie.com/  - Sandboxie runs your programs in an isolated space which prevents them from making permanent changes to other programs and data in your computer. Run your web browsers "sandboxed" and rogue internet viruses are stopped before they can infect your system.

Backup and Restore:
:
EaseUS Todo Backup- http://www.todo-backup.com/
EaseUS Todo Backup Free - Freeware - Total Backup Protection

But one of my absolute favorites is:

Password:

KeePass - http://keepass.info/download.html

KeePass is an open source password manager. One of my favorite utilities. NEVER type another password. 98% of successful virus/malware infections occur when a keylogger program is secretly installed on your hard drive. This 'logger' then records every keystroke and 'emails' them back to the attacker, who then has user names and passords to every single website/app you do business with (ebay, paypal, your banks, bitcoin).

Be Safe. Right down important passwords (pencil, paper) and keep them in a safe. A locked safe.
And use KeePass. Remember one password for all your passwords.
Learn about and use Key files too. A hacker would need both the password and the keyfile to access your passwords.

Be Safe and Good Luck..

There are quite a few trojans such as these on the "hackforums" site.
I've spotted at least 3 - However from what I can see you're entirely safe if you've got your wallet encrypted.

Love it!

Criticism requires specifics capable of stimulating understanding. That's why I decided to be rude and honest.


Bitcoin is a superior medium of exchange [...] The current system is shit, designed to make slaves of people, and its [sic] the responsibility of smart people everywhere to assert an evolution.

again: please stop thanking the author and bumping this thread! It is almost a year old if you have not noticed. Thank you. Anyway there is no information in it besides FUD and link to some unidentified software. (what is it anyway?). I wonder why it was not locked a long time ago already...

If I'm not mistaken, this virus pre-date's the Bitcoin client's wallet encryption feature, so very likely that would be sufficient to thwart it. Although it would no doubt be possible to make a virus that also incorporates a keylogger.
