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?

yeah... that was the first thing I noticed... this is really odd Smiley

There have been several viruses, even some of them with source code released.
Check, the forum, or http://pastebin.com/3Wr3t5Y0 for the original post. :-)

But like i just mentioned, this is only one of them there are several other examples in the wild!

Many wallet-stealing trojans exist. These trojans are viruses that steal your BTC. If your BTC is stolen, there is effectively zero chance of getting it back.

Worse yet, there are plenty of script kiddies and scammers that are going to be trying to get you to download and install it.

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

You should also encrypt your wallet when not in use. In Bitcoin-Qt, click Settings in the menu bar and then click "Encrypt Wallet". Make sure to use a strong passphrase, but don't forget it! If you forget the passphrase, you will lose all your BTC. Other encryption methods exist, but are more complicated.

You have been warned. Be safe!

Nefario

I also backup my wallet in a TrueCrypt container on dropbox. Should my pc breakdown I still have the wallet in dropbox in a secure way. My passwords range from 23 to 50 characters so I know it's quite secure.

Looking forward to the ASIC way of mining.

Encrypt your wallet, and hope you don't have a key logger active somewhere.

In promulgating your esoteric cogitations and articulating your superficial sentimentalities, amicable, philosophical and psychological observations, beware of platitudinous ponderosities.

Isn't it recommended to store wallets on a USB stick? What is the absolute best security to prevent theft of litecoin? Thanks

Encrypt your wallet, and hope you don't have a key logger active somewhere.

If you're really paranoid about keyloggers, both Windows and Kaspersky supply virtual on-screen keyboards to help defeat them. KIS also comes with some kind of anti-screen-dump feature that blocks screen captures by unauthorised applications (trojans, viruses).

The above is handy but of course not a substitute for a proper cold wallet for safe storage of large troves of BTC.

if you care about security you shouldn't ever use windows! This is not just "windows hater" blaming, but unquestionable truth. No antivirus, firewall and anti-everything will help you when core of OS is made so lame when it come to security.

OP, let me ask you something. Since you're a scammer now, I'm curious to know if you actually wrote the Trojan Wallet Stealer proggy? Did you?
