is there document explain best practices for bitcoin?? how i can protect my wallet, maybe wiki?

- make your wallet offline!  offline wallet cannot have private key compromised easy.  maybe truecrypt offline wallet also so person steals gets nothing.  make copies!  offline wallet means manual update for balances to know how to make valud transaction.

- virus steals wallet.  maybe dialog says "transaction cost 0.004 bitcoins" but really transaction is free and "fee" goes to attacker.

- virus attack any software, any security holes,auto update (os, browser, av, music player) might steal wallet!  paranoid?  open source best?

- maybe hardware maker put virus in cpu or other component.  watch out

stay safe!
