As much as we like freebies we should be careful of the application we install on our systems expecially hack copy of an application because most of the hacker want valuable information back from us which will give to them not knowing. My first bitcoin wallet balance was emptied because i save the private key and password on my desktop by Zbot/Zeus trojan . I learnt my lesson in hard way

Thanks for this post, although it would take a very trained eye to be able to spot malicious code within source.   Even if it's open source, sometimes it can be very difficult as the author of the malicious code tries to insert it in a sneaky way that otherwise looks legitimate.

Must be careful with that these days. I would also beware of small spammy scammy AirDrop ICOs.  All they have to do is offer you free coins and you need to create an address.  In order to do that you need to download their wallet software... be careful out there.

Yes, we must be very careful. Thanks for the tips. Security is a big issue here since lots of us are using hot wallet to trade on sometimes exotic platforms.

I learned so much from this thread. Thank you for this post! Especially the tip on the AirDrop ICOs, which I had no idea about but participated in due to the free coins they offered

prevention is better than cure

think in layers of protection, because there is no universal panacia for malware

a hosts file manager, with blocklists installed

a VPN service is a very good thing to have, mine costs ~$30.00 per year

some kind of AV (i like clamwin, because it is free and just quietly works, but needs some attention)

spybot S&D does a gr8 job if you use it every day and it's free

malwarebytes is very effective additional protecton, $~50.00/year for the paid ver.

virtualize your browsing: use free software like virtualbox to run a 32 bit OS on your 64 bit system, and do all your online stuf from there  Wink

Abandon Wondows OS! win 10 is a total insult to anyone who respects the concept of liberty. linux is free to use and superior in most ways

Thanks this was very informative. I guess this forum is a big target for malware developers who want to steal easy crypto money.

a good advice would be to keep a quiet social profile, with different usernames and password across reddit/bitcointalk/medium etc

what can we do to protect from this evil, there is a lot of help software in this regard.

I agree with the increase in security and cybercriminals are getting smarter, and many in this forum did not even begin to study cybersecurity until they were hacked

I'm glad that first thing I saw was a topic dedicated to cyber security, because I think it's very important, but with full confidence I can say that the antivirus will not protect your computer and your crypto money from theft, the main defense is personal vigilance and carefully check what links you go through.

In general, if the computer is associated with money, then it must initially be prepared for viruses. Buy a decent antivirus and do not go on suspicious links that you give in chat rooms telegrams, and other social networks!
