Working on a writeup now, the owner got back most of his coins, but the scammer (who also goes by Tolsi, see the post above-lulwat?) got away with 30.

What makes you think it was me? I'm not trying to get my money back, I lost them on their stupidity. I've changed my wallet. I do not understand how I was tied up with Hummer? He is not me!

The only person scammed was Blitzboom, not Tolsi (see the writeup).

This is why I rely on YOU guys to test out new software.... for me....   Smiley

I'm not into being on the bleeding edge of new things.  

So only 30 bitcoins were lost to this douchebag thief?

Maybe we could each make a little donation to him (the victim) to help make up for his loss...?

I hate to see innocent people scammed like that.

Apparently, people like this give a BAD NAME to all of their fellow Russian Countrymen.

It is very sad that it gives the entire world the impression that Russia is nothing but a land of criminals and thieves.    It's very sad.     It is a disgrace to all decent people everywhere.

PS - Mind making the word slightly more obvious in the title of this thread?    Like:  [SCAM] A simple application to backup your wallet in Dropbox and Gmail [SCAM]

I made him a proposal. According to his PM, he’ll accept, but the question is when I will get it. The longer he waits, the more attention this will get, I guess.

Still, I always accept donations, see my signature for that.

Sadly I think this is going to become common. It's just too easy, especially if the forum was even larger and had many unknowing and unsuspecting individuals.
Could we somehow enforce rules on links to downloadable material? Create a team willing to somehow test new downloads before they are allowed on the forum? How do you protect people when the users are not as advanced in computers as 95% of the users here currently?

I sense a new business model.

A possible solution might be an encrypted wallet-file, so you'd have to enter a password each time you start bitcoin.exe to decrypt it. That way a stolen wallet.dat-file would be useless for the thief.

All these can easily be defeated if the user throw caution to the wind. However, I think it should be easier to secure one's bitcoin wallet.

Well, the sole reason I wasn’t suspicious is simple: As this thread already had some posts I thought, it would’ve come out if the "application" is malicious. I was wrong to put my trust in this, obviously.
