Bitcoin Trojans are becoming a serious issue and putting a lot of currency into an online wallet is very risky. I made a site showing in detail how to create a secure bitcoin wallet you can keep on a thumb drive. It is very detailed and usable by the biggest newbies out there.

A wise man once said "a lock keeps an honest man honest, but a thief will get you no matter what!"

Sigh, we are never free from these damn hackers. With all this hacking, it makes me worried about any financial transactions on the internet. I guess there is no hiding from crimminals... Whether this money can be fake or real, they are just out there to give you a hard time. Hopefully there will be an even more, secured way to anonymously have financial transactions. Free from hackers and politicians which both seem to enjoy taxing away our happiness. I guess there is always cash.

Remember the good old days when your money was in your pocket and security was supplied buy smith & wesson

Yup, good old days when half your kids died before they were adults.

I agree with the sentiment... I use cash whenever possible.

I think what he meant was that the good old days weren't really so good because lots of people died young from diseases that are easily curable today.

Yeah. While the present day may have disadvantages such as electronic crime or stricter gun laws (among many other things) it also was full of things like sexism, racism, disease, poverty... which we tend to gloss over in nostalgia.

Sexism, racism,disease,poverty, You talk as though these things are gone. All four of these are alive and thriving all over the planet. Not to mention human trafficking,Samolian pirates,genocides and the list goes on.

and all those things happened back then as well, it was just acceptable back then.

No. I speak relatively. This is the second time you've missed that. I don't have any belief that any of those things are gone, mearly that for many of us (especially those who are able to read these posts) life is generally a lot better in the present day.

It was only a matter of time.

When there's money involved, it's always only a matter of time.

Particularly so when your money is in what is the equivalent of a safe that was not bolted to the floor. No need to know a combination when you can just pick up the safe and leave.

 

It's the very first rule of security. Walls over padlocks.
