Title: Possible malware?
Post by: BitterTea on June 10, 2011, 01:25:59 PM
Did anyone else get the following private messages? I'm wondering if the "miner" in question is actually malware. Why else would it be a binary only on github? I also noticed that he only signed up a few days ago and is following over a thousand developers... Anyone feel like disassembling the jar?

Hi Silvio,

Long time I have not seen you on IRC? What's up?
I do not know if you still use DiabloMiner on your GPU cluster?

I have bought the same config you have and I have tested DiabloMiner
on it. I can produce 3Gh/s. That's quite good.

Yesterday I have talked with Alex, he has developped an optimizated version of DiabloMiner.
He has committed the soft on github:

I have tested it, it's quite good, I can produce 1Gh/s more. You may try it...

I hope to see you soon on IRC!!!


My last mail was not for you, do no consider it.

If you can, just send some seriously nasty images to them :)

The interesting thing is that only Hero members got this so far. I think someone's harvesting IPs of more vocal members of this forum
