Hacker concerns


#1

Hi all, I am new to cryptos, wallets and the need for maximum security on my computer. I have a VPN, spyhunter,reghunter and stay off of the dark side on the net std free, yet I have my fears. I do not want my Ada on an exchange nor do I feel comfortable with them on my PC. I am quite limited with what I can do on it as it was not my field. Nevertheless I have learned much in 70 days so I have an old computer, spare, with a fresh install of win vista for cold storage but that will not work as it is a 32 not a 64. … I will get a storage computer. Opinions on a cold storage computer would be great I have a win 32/64 7pro Cd to do a fresh install.
Thanks R.C.

Maybe you should try paper, if you understand how storing works then it will work great for you. Is not Vista more Vulnerable than win10?


#3

Send to a wallet then disconnect front the internet.

That was to be my cold storage computer. LOl, Anyway, I will get a newer 64 bit system do a fresh install of win 7 pro and call it a day. I have win 10 I hate it for now!!

Thanks for the reply!

Use arch and build make daedalus

I’m Sorry what is arch? I am an Air conditioning Contractor, I work with Freon torches vacuum pumps and gauges, I have cooled down a few server rooms though, Lol. I think for my skill set a computer with a tower maybe run 2 HDs master and slave maybe sort something out a way to separate them when on line in say a single transaction. Both drives with wallets transfer spending/trading funds to the internet wallet while keeping the other one separate? Maybe I am overthinking this. but it would be safe and ready for use with all cryptos. So yeah a second HD? Any suggestions would be great!!

Oh ok… Arch Linux

Maybe use Ubuntu of Fedora (se Linux by default)

Lets do some threat analysis here:
first question (there will be others): how quickly do you want to have access to what fraction of your Ada value?
