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...

You just bumped it  Wink

What's the problem with warning people about the possibility of a wallet stealing trojan? it's not unthinkable by any means.

Someone can still take your wallet, and they can see transactions, but they can't perform a transaction without your password.

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
Thank you for providing the link to the portable version. I don't like installing lots of programs to my computer so I love portable applications Smiley

Related thread, doesn't steal wallets (because people are starting to encrypt them, so it's getting harder) but swaps bad addresses for good ones.

How do hackers know you have a wallet if you computer is behind a router?

The only way I can think of is a trojan software, isn't it?

mmmmm, would've been helpful to describe the trojan scam.
You can read it here. https://forum.bitcoin.org/index.php?topic=16457.0

As a Newbie, I can't post on that thread.

So, here's my thought on the subject.

If Bitcoins are a set of digital Alpha/numerric characters for each Bitcoin, then each REAL transaction should add the sellers 'input' characters to the code that verify that the seller ACTUALLY sold them to a Specific buyer, who know has them in his Account/s. They need to be traceable, that way.
So, stealing them would not add any verifiable characters to each Bitcoin, which should render them worthless to the thief, but still holding their value for the owner they were 'stolen' from.
IF he was SMART enough to keep them backed-up, then he'd still have his version of the digital docs, that have his code attached to them,

NO?

How would this affect the trace-ability of the coins?

You can't steal someone elses BitCoins.    In my understanding when coins are sent, they are encrypted to a public key, and only the person with the private key can then make use of them (or "vouch" for them being sent elsewhere).  It's a beautiful application of public/private key cryptography.

The only person with the private keys to your coins is you.......or anyone with your wallet.dat file.  This is why wallet encryption is so important.

I bought a used Radeon 5850 and the GPU fan died within 2 weeks :-(
