Thanks nefario. Good to know you care about noobs, I've been around long enough, but that doesn't effect the usefulness of your loving kindness. BTW GLBSE is the bomb, except when it's down >.>

If people actually stopped using the same machine they have their wallet software on for their day to day tasks, it would help alleviate theft. I've seen a few people bring me their computer for service and right there on the desktop in between azerus and bit torrent in a nice bitcoin icon  Embarrassed

Not really an issue if you avoid dodgy sites, have decent antivirus (for Winbloze), encrypt wallet.dat and don't leave thousands of BTC sitting in a hot wallet all the time. Obviously, for saving/storing large quantities of BTC, a cold wallet is the only sane and effective solution.

I've encrypted my wallet.dat for sure but with the balance I have at present, I could happily do without it and avoid the small inconvenience of having to enter my passphrase to spend money, etc.

I feel like half the mining software in BTC mining uses libraries or code from trojan's in it.  Like umm Ufasoft's coinminer.exe for example.  Or, you know how other miners use libraries common to trojan's and viruses.  I understand you don't want to write your own library, dats cool, remove shit you don't need from the library you use and rename it.  I suppose the easy way is just compile your own code. 

Anyway hack you later.

Does anyone else find it odd that the person who started this thread, ostensibly to give us newbies safe advice, has been classified as a scammer?

He is right, that there is Trojan software in a heap of bitcoin stuff,

but wrong in saying encrypting your wallet will stop it getting stolen.

The trojens are often keyloggers so they just record your passwords and send that back with the wallet.dat

Even without your encryption password I suspect someone with enough FPGA fire power could brute force your password anyway.

Your best bet is to have your bitcoin client on a linux boot from a USB stick and keep it in a sterile quaranteened OS.

That's true, but such a system would not be as usable, what i do is i keep most of my bitcoins in a wallet on a linux fully encrypted and very barely use it , whatever i mine i send to blockchain wallet which has a 2 layer authentication, one is the google authenticator that generates a key every 30 secs or so.  Whatever is extra i send it to my linux wallet and whatever i might use i keep there.
