Can we assume that Ripple is an alternative to blockchain, or is it not a blockchain at all??

If the point comes, where one is wealthy  enough that it would be painful as hell to be exploited by vulnerabilities, having just one pc isn't an excuse(you do have money to buy another).

I'm not wealthy enough to justify it, but if i ever was, getting a machine that is always offline to hold most of my value would be a priority. Yeah and i do have a trezor.

. I really, really like LLC Company Formation Dubai. Remarkably LLC Company Formation Dubai is heralded by shopkeepers and investment bankers alike, leading many to state that it is important to remember that ‘what goes up must come down.’ It is an unfortunate consequence of our civilizations history that<a href="http://www.companieshouse.ae/llc-company-formation-dubai/"> LLC Company Formation</a> Dubai is rarely given rational consideration by those politicaly minded individuals living in the past

I do not know why I have not noticed this threat for so long. Probably because he is so old. Really good reading material. Amusing. And many of the postings encourage everyone to rethink everything in this hectic time.

It's hard enough to get the half-baked alt chain software to run at all (and speed is of the essence knowing they are all quickly collapsing pyramids) never mind configuring a VM with appropriate hardware access.  Here are steps I've taken which I think are "good enough" to be advice -- it's worked for me for 4 shitcoin chains so far.

1.  Don't use Windows and pre-built .exes.  Just don't.  Ever.  Nothing inherently wrong with Microsoft software, but it is well understood and commonly used by the botnet types.  Staying out of the monoculture is a form of security by obscurity.
2.  Create a new account with no group membership.  I call mine "goatse" for obvious but nostalgic reasons.  Make absolutely sure that account doesn't have read or write access outside of their home directory.   Make doubly sure they can't read the raw hard drive device.
3.  Log out of your main account and into that account whenever compiling or running the alt chain software.  Remember that compilation & installation scripts are code!
4.  Do not browse exchange sites you have coinage in and definitely do not save passwords in the browser when logged in as this account.
5.  If you log into this account via ssh DO NOT enable X proxying.  It's trivial to read your keystrokes, do screen captures, etc when X is proxied.  Let me repeat this one, make sure X proxying is disabled.  If you can type 'xterm' and see it show up on your main account's screen you're vulnerable. 

And yes, I even follow this for official bitcoin software.  On a different account than "goatse" of course.

Generally, if you have a large amount of bitcoins on a given PC, being extra-cautious about third party software (be it an Alt-coin client or a particularly fancy casual game) is advisable.

if I am very careful with links or software that we do not know the origin of devices that we do not know and display promotions on our pc have, especially on our pc there are many important data and bitcoin data with a large amount.

In software engineering, a project fork happens when developers take a copy of source code from one software package and start independent development on it, creating a distinct and separate piece of software. The term often implies not merely a development branch, but also a split in the developer community, a form of schism.  Cool

Thank all of you!
Today’s internet has security problems that are familiar to everyone. We all rely on the “username/password” system to protect our identity and assets online. Blockchain security methods use encryption technology,so users store their data on the blockchain and it is incorruptible.

Thank you Gavin.

The only things I might add is that "use a different password" isn't limited to exchanges, but applies to forums, emails, and even pools Wink , and that some antivirus heuristics seem to hate anything that has mining code in it and isn't explicitly whitelisted.
totally agreed
