    Running Windows 7 ultimate. I have installed Vitualbox with >Unbuntu now I can run my Bitcoin client inside of this (sandbox?) and still back it up with Dropbox and encrypt it with Turecrypt. Do I even need anti virus on this Unbuntu install? I will only use it to send and receive bitcoins. Am i safe from the Trojan Wallet stealer Huh

(I am a 1MB block supporter who thinks all users should be using Full-Node clients)
Avoid the XT shills, they only want to destroy bitcoin, their hubris and greed will destroy us.

The Bitcoin network protocol was designed to be extremely flexible. It can be used to create timed transactions, escrow transactions, multi-signature transactions, etc. The current features of the client only hint at what will be possible in the future.

A few obvious problems so far:
- Dropbox security is FAIL. One sunday they allowed ANY user to login into their account with NO PASSWORD. Otherwise their security is fail.
- keylogging on the guest can intercept your truecrypt password (no matter if you encrypt the VM or use disk encryption in the VM itself)
- screengrabbing can sniff some of the addresses, sites and other things a keylogger on the guest can't see into the vm
- physical attackers can be present, or even remote ones. Make sure you are protected against people accessing your desktop directly
