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

You first told us this. And then...


send us a link !!

Nice - 2 "hero" members who are now labeled scammers.  Best tread carefully with clicking on links in these forums.   Tongue

There is a (new?) trojan wallet stealer out in the wild ATM.

Plenty of script kiddies and scammers are going to be trying to get you to download and install it, what's more they'll be putting posts to do so (using lies obviously).

You should also encrypt your wallet when not in use.

I don't get it why just encrypting my wallet is not enough?

Anyway never store unencrypted versions of your wallet...
It would be the same as storing an unencrypted video of you having sex with your girlfriend and an encrypted one at the same place!

I don't trust any of your links due to you being scammer tagged....

I give him - 2 points for stupidity, but +1 for boldness and +1 for making me interested enough to post this. All in all, I broke even.

Even so, won't it be detected by mainstream anti viruses already?  Undecided

Also: May I ask why the original poster has a large red "SCAMMER" warning, in his profile?  Grin That definitely made my day.

that's why: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=115669.0

Not if the program was developed from scratch for this particular purpose (which is likely), and the developer is talented.

You don't need to encrypt your wallet. You can just move your bitcoin data folder usually located in %appdata% to another location, and edit the bitcoin client shortcut's target from:

Code:
"C:\bitcoin-install-directory"

to

Code:
"C:\bitcoin-install-directory" -datadir=C:\bitcoin-data-folder
This is great tip. Some hac.kers  which uses scanner tools first checks appdata directory actually maybe we should develop to insert a tool in bitcoin software to able to change it.. This will very much help to protect wallet.dat

Just use Armory: all digital wallets are encrypted.

If a hacker gets a hold of your digital wallet and it's encrypted with AES256. It will take hackers approximately 1.56 billion years to crack the encrypted password.

I am not even worried.

Why would they bother to try to crack it?  The same malware that steals your wallet will just steal your passphrase next time you use it.  And even if there isn't a passphrase stealer, you're assuming you are anywhere near as good at picking strong passphrases as you think you are (the fact that you say 'password' rather than 'passphrase' is not a good start).

Using Armory is good advice, but if you have a non-trivial balance you should be using cold storage, which is where Armory comes into its own.
