The community deserves to know about html malleability risks that could steal their coins.

Over a 100 BTC plus countless altcoins have been stolen.

In 1 transaction, 60 BTC stolen today here. The attack bypasses 2FA. You won't know your coins are gone until AFTER you hit withdrawal and you verify on the blockchain. Such a terrible feeling.

Ok, I wasn't aware of this.

One should NEVER download any application from a non-trusted source.  I guess since I'm in IT, this is common sense to me.   Smiley

in FIAT land people have the common sense to never write their debit cards pin number on a piece of paper and to definitely never put that piece of paper in their leather wallet next to their debit card.

using a computer to download untrusted malware, torrents, Trojans or any 3rd part program that has not been verified. is just as bad as using the signature strip of your debit card to write "my pin number: xxxx"

if you have over $100 of bitcoin then think about these 3 options
1) spend $25 to buy a raspberry PI to be used ONLY for bitcoin transactions
2) spend nothing to secure your bitcoins and risk losing that $100+
3) spend a bit of FIAT and only have legit programs on your PC, stop downloading free programs that have trojan risks

I DO NOT TRADE OR ACT AS ESCROW ON THIS FORUM EVER.
Please do your own research & respect what is written here as both opinion & information gleaned from experience. many people replying with insults but no on-topic content substance, automatically are 'facepalmed' and yawned at

I guess since you're in IT you're an arrogant prick who has difficulty relating to other people. Smiley

Good guess, but wrong.  Smiley

I actually have the rare ability to interface with the non-technical user using terminology they understand.  It's the main reason I stayed in my own business instead of accepting the wads of cash companies offer to throw at me.  Smiley

If that's true, I am facepalming. That 60 divided into like maybe 6 offline wallets or of that like of 60 divided by 12, would have saved him/her from losing 50-55 bitcoins and using coinbase. And haven't people learned of online wallets? Another facepalm.

Edit:
Might lose some but not all.

there will be good money to be made when someone comes up with a way for the average joe to better understand how to stay safe with cryptocoins.  The amount people would save from not being scammed would give them more to donate to those helping them better understand how to operated safely online if you ask me.
