There will always be problem with "things".. I want bitcoin to stay untracable.  Bitcoin isn't God's currency.. there will always be problems, however we have to work collectively to "fuckup" whatever and whomever is trying to destroy our cyber economy.  I propose anyone who can hack, or "good at computers" should join forces and destroy this threat.  This is the closest thing we have to freedom!

As someone who is "good with computers" myself I can tell you that it's nearly impossible for hackers to stop those who wish to destroy us. The majority of those who do wrong on the internet know how to protect themselves by using layered proxies like Tor and VPN's.

Really the only people we would be able to stop are those too stupid to use a proxy or those who don't know what activities will give them away while using a proxy (like using flash applications for example).

Other than that the only way to find the wrong-doers is with a LOT of luck and a LOT of time spent sifting through pcap files from the time window an attack occurred at.

Really the only way to protect ourselves and our assets is to focus on preventing the attacks in the first place by constantly checking and re-checking for exploitable code if you're a pool owner, securing your wallet if you're an end-user and using common sense to ensure that we NEVER download/install/open ANY file that comes from ANY source that is not 100% completely trusted by the community AND yourself.

The best I can offer as someone who is "good with computers" is penetration testing to evaluate the security of any given server/box. From there it would be up to a web developer to remove the exploitable code and replace it with secure code.

Any developers who may be interested in such an idea, let me know and we can form a team for anyone who might request/require such services.

Encrypted Wallet and back it up to online storage service and usb backup drive once a day. However dumb investments and gambling have cost me the most BTC and probably are more of a threat to newbies than Trojans. Still, be careful and don't put all yer eggs in one basket, sonny boy.

virus scan your PC regularly, don't go to untrusted websites, and encrypt your wallet to be safe.

after you need to update all your sofware

the most common exploit:
all MS Office version before 2012
All adobe flash player version (except the last one but until when...)
Java
all version of Internet Explorer (except the last update but until when...)
same for Firefox .....
