Offline Bitcoin Wallet/USB Stick Security
« on: December 23, 2013, 06:02:40 AM »
Using an offline Bitcoin wallet/USB stick to store Bitcoins is supposed to be secure. Is it not possible for the USB stick to get infected, while plugged into the online computer? ???

USB stick is no where near secure. I've seen more broken/corrupted USB sticks than any other hardware. Paper wallet is the way to go if you want to play safe.
