Apparently all a thief requires is to gain access to a single file wallet.dat on your local computer. After that? all you can do is sit back and watch as your virtual currency is transferred to some other anonymous person, in some other currency. Who here hasn't been hit by a virus, or knows someone that has? Are you willing to risk your investments to a single file?
