Thanks for the information - I wish BTC could be a little bit more secure while still providing autonomy.

Security is not something that you wait for someone else to provide you.  There are plenty of steps anyone can take that make theft a minimal issue.  Luv the topic! Where can I get the T-shirts?

Acctually one cannot trust even himself, because of the asociative (not digital) way our brain works we cannot be sure about enything. Anyway great thread.

Having an "everyday" wallet where you cash out from your pools or everyday transactions and another "savings" wallet where you transfer all your savings to which is encrypted, offline, and backed up (offline via usb or other source) is a great way to go.

True that, you can't spend enough time researching and protecting yourself as well. It's much better insurance to do this BEFORE you dump your savings into btc. The more you know...........

Seriously. Don't trust the exchanges, don't trust online wallet services, don't trust your anti-virus software, and don't trust anybody online.

If you absolutely must trust someone with your bitcoins, for the love, choose carefully!

Thanks for the advice, informative post.

kind regards

good to see security advice threads in the newbie section. you can never be too paranoid when it comes to IT security, though there are some thresholds most people have to draw the line at, for practical purposes, as a few people have reiterated in this thread.

most people, unfortunately, will never be certain that the device(s) they use are secured/uncompromised. it's a risk everyone has to decide whether or not to take in order to utilize the electronic tool(s) at their disposal.

if you think you have to be paranoid now...just wait until the singularity emanates and we have the ability to jack into networks and systems directly with our minds.

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?

I recently got this offer. Does it seem legit?

Quote
Im looking for AP(Alertypay but now known as payza) funds, if you could deposit with your card into your own payza.com account, we could do the exchange either with exchangezone.com or whatever other method you would prefer.

I will do the exchange at face value with no fees above the 2.5% + 25c receiver fee I would pay from receiving AP funds from you. Send me PM or reply in this thread if interested and we can figure something out.

Interesting read, seems a bit drastic. I usually generate all my password randomly and keep them all inside a master key in my web browser, and the ones I use most, I physically write them down in a notepad then lock it away somewhere so no one else can look at it - No one looks at it anyway as I have no friends in real life Tongue and I trust my family members.

I'll definitely use this advice though, thanks! Smiley

You can try the site that I am working on www.coineta.com to exchange funds using Paypal. I might add support for Payza in near future

Wow. Your password ideas suggest deep paranoia. Warranted perhaps?
