Bitcointalk Summary 25-01-2014

Sometimes you misjudge the amount of content. I thought that this would be a quickie because there were only about 20 pages. I was wrong…

Account Security!

  • Please, if you don’t already have a strong, random, minimum 30 character passphrase for your account: MAKE ONE NOW! There have been thefts that may well have been due to short, non-random passes being bruteforced. Read up on password security here and here.
  • Connected to this, there is an increasing call from the community for strong passwords to be enforced by the clients. Both user iruu and Anon136 have proposed ideas on how to make accounts safer.

Client

  • Everyone must upgrade his client to 0.5.10 before block 51000 or be left on a fork. Do so now! Get the current client here.
