Anything ending with an .exe where somebody tells you to download could potentially be
a stealer. If it was an exe, it sould have a signature to check against the issuer.
Of course, assumes you trust issuer..  Roll Eyes

its pretty scary if you think about it.

you can have thousands of dollars and someone can steal it all
and nobody can help you

i just hope my 15 character alphanumeric password to all my bitcoin related accounts is enough  =D

ideally, you should use different passwords for every account. have you considered using keepass2 or another similar secure password manager?

you can keep the keepass2 passwords and such encrypted on a usb dongle around your neck or on your neckchain, but that's meant as a backup, in case you lose the computer with keepass2 installed, or in case you need to use a school, work, or library computer.

but ideally, you'd use something like that. a single password across many bitcoin websites isnt exactly ideal. just saying.

Here are some tips to keep your wallet secure:
ALWAYS use antivirus software (The paid AV is better than free. AVG seems to work best for me, there is a free version if needed)
ALWAYS use a firewall (Most AV software includes this, make sure it does. Also, make sure you have a hardware firewall.)
NEVER download from an untrusted source
NEVER turn off User Account Control on Windows Vista/Windows 7
NEVER turn off your AV/Firewall unless you really have to for a video game, web server, etc.
ASK yourself these questions before you download anything:
1) Do I know what this program does?
2) Is there any chance this program contains a virus?
3) Is the file name misspelled or does it look suspicious? 
4) How many people downloaded it, and were there any bad reports about it?
KNOW that every file can possibly have a virus hidden in it
KNOW that no virus scanner is 100% effective
KNOW that a virus can NOT harm you unless you open it
MAKE backups of your wallet file (PM me if you do not know how, I'll tell you.)
ENCRYPT your wallet with a very strong password of AT LEAST 10 words
BE AWARE that there can also be viruses for MAC OS and LINUX (and other operating systems)
RESEARCH all programs. No reviews or information? Don't download. Ask around first.

I hope my post keeps the community well informed.

Does anyone have an actual, real, live sample of a trojan or virus that steals wallets and bitcoins? It would be great to submit them to antivirus producers.


When you do a online AV report it usually submits it.

this is why antivirus is key

dont be fooled by anti-virus programs, it is just good for those who sale it. before releasing trojan into network, bad guys testing it to be detectable by all major antivirus programs. no body will release detectable trojan. Once become detectable trojan encrypted, update issued and it again undetectable. antiviruses always behind for 2 weeks a t least in this race.

Yes, I agree to a point. However, the "crypters" as they are called, wear off after a while. So keep using your AV software.

Better use Linux as your main OS. Everything wearing off, fact is that AV did not protect you from any real treat and give you just illusion of been protected, that is even more dangerous. AVs is just a scam.

Yes. Linux is good. I use it sometimes.
But any OS has its disadvantages...

try a Mint Linux, cant see any disadvantages in it. I can even print in colour from Mint. Also you can install VirtualBox and run Windows and all your fav apps on it.

I've seen some youtube scam videos where they claim they're "injecting" (counterfeiting) bitcoins with a special program, with a download link. I don't mind that they're compromising people who are themselves unsavory, and dumb as bricks.

Is there some kind of minimalistic linux-live-cd to do your bitcoin-business? That would be great, as it's very hard for some trojan to get on a live-cd!

people who aren't careful enough will always get scammed no matter what.
