Be Careful would be the best advice instead of trust no one.

I am running bitcoind behind two router with firewall enabled. I see some dropped TCP connection requests to port 80 and 443 to my computer. I wonder if it was caused by bitcoind somehow. I don't have these ports open. How they got behind routers?

 Grin  So if you trust noone...what wallet do you use?  I like brain wallets myself like coinbase and blockchain.info.

It's for this reason I'm questioning bitcoins' adoption to mainstream use. If technical people get caught out and scammed easily, what will happen to the everyday joe? I can't imagine explaining to my mom how to back up her wallet and taking note of the ssh keys..

I'd like to add Trust no-pc either. I don't know how, but in the last 3 o 4 days somebody cracked my e-mail password and requested a password recovery from Deepbit, then changed the Reward Address... I've lost almost 1BTC, until I realize what happened.

Therefore, don't trust any other pc than yours, and eventually check your payments address...

How did they get your password? Brute force? Keylogger?

Very good points.

At this time, 2013/04/01, bitcoin price hit 93$/BTC. Those early time investors have already earn a significant profit from just holding them on their harddisk. Now, if we want BTC to really become a currency, we need to use it for tranactions, buying and selling products/services in BTCs. That need us to believe something, somebody, some agency, some company.

Not an easy task, but I think there will be some companies emerging from the ground. Those who care the business reputation, mind the long term interestes, not the short term tricky, will be a next milestone in BTC society. I BELIEVE there will be someome.

The only limitation on bitcoin at the moment is the amount of shops and stores that accept them. Its a bit of a catch 22 scenario, shops are reluctant to accept a volatile currency but without the shops bitcoin community wont expand

don't trust online wallet services

I wish more people heard that.

I see advanced users giving advice to newbies such as "use them, it's simpler and works fine!". I try to tell people to avoid that advice but... it's everywhere!

Even for low volume wallets it's a risk I'm not going to take.

I like this post, and now I am going to be contacting my vps and vpd providers to never accept a request for a password change through my email. Does anyone have a good idea of how to protect your other accounts such as these? Maybe I could tell them to only abide by a request when they call me and I answer the phone and answer a security question? I'm not sure it would be very easy to hijack a call but I know they could spoof my id so maybe this would be the best bet. At the same time a fisher could gain access to my security question answer by pretending to be my hosting provider and say, "We have detected a possible intrusion and think it would be wise to change your password, can you answer your security question so we can rectify the situation." Or something along those lines. Anyone have any better ideas?
