1  Other / Beginners & Help / {Warning}: New Panda Stealer Targets Cryptocurrency Wallets on: May 05, 2021, 09:57:13 PM
A new malware was recently discovered last month and being called "Panda Stealer". And mostly they are spread across United States, Australia, Japan and Germany.

Mode of infection

1. Spam email pretending to be a business quote request. And it has an XLS attachment, obviously, it has a malicious content

2. Another attachment, but this time the XLS contained an Excel formula that utilizes a PowerShell command

Cryptocurrencies being targeted and others:

Once installed, Panda Stealer can collect details like private keys and records of past transactions from its victim’s various digital currency wallets, including Dash, Bytecoin, Litecoin, and Ethereum. Not only does it target cryptocurrency wallets, it can steal credentials from other applications such as NordVPN, Telegram, Discord, and Steam. It’s also capable of taking screenshots of the infected computer and exfiltrating data from browsers like cookies, passwords, and cards.

So again, be careful even if you are not living on those countries that has been mentioned as the main target for now. The malware might not target bitcoin for now, but for sure this cyber actors are going to evolved. So don't open any attachment specially coming from unknown source.
2  Economy / Gambling discussion / [Boxing]: Josh Taylor vs Jose Ramirez - May 22 on: May 03, 2021, 02:38:43 PM
Before we forgot, there is a 140 lbs reunification fight between Josh Taylor and Jose Ramirez on May 22. Both are undefeated boxer so this is a very good fight.

Josh Taylor has the IBF and WBA belts, while Jose Ramirez has the WBC and WBO title. The last boxer who held this belt in this division is Terrence Crawford.

Current odds:

I would say that Josh Taylor has the advantage here, he has faced a lot of great and upcoming fighters in the WBSS tournament. Both has a good chin and a body puncher. But I would say that Taylor might take this one by unanimous decision. We just have to wait for more betting options though.
3  Economy / Gambling discussion / [Boxing]: Lomachenko vs Nakatani June 26 on: April 25, 2021, 05:49:31 PM
Lomachenko vs Nakatani June 26

Ok, so Lomachenko will be making his comeback fight after his devastating lost against Teofimo Lopez. And he ain't taking easy opponent as he will be fighting Masayoshi Nakatani. For those who are not familiar with Nakatani, he also fought Lopez for 12 full and hard rounds.

Nakatani is tall, this is a dangerous fight for Loma. But I think this will go to distance as well with Loma winning by UD.

Note: No odds yet for crypto related bookies.
4  Economy / Gambling discussion / [Boxing]: Haney vs Linares - May 29 on: April 07, 2021, 11:48:04 PM
Devin Haney vs Jorge Linares May 29

So it's now official, Haney will be facing Linares for his WBC Lightweight title. This is going to be an exciting and close fight. Linares gave Loma all he can take and even score a flash knock down, and obviously he has the experienced in this fight. So Haney will be tested here for sure, but I think he can adjust and will probably win by decision here.

I'm expecting a very close odds here, although there is none yet for now, Haney might be slight favourite and ML might be good to bet here.
5  Economy / Gambling discussion / [Boxing]: Cotto vs Marquez - Exhibition match on: March 30, 2021, 11:22:49 PM
This is a surprise:

Miguel Cotto vs. Juan Manuel Marquez Exhibition Clash in Play For June 12

Multiple sources have informed that the pair of former four-division titlists are due to meet in an exhibition bout on June 12 from a location to be determined. Details on the event have yet to be confirmed other than that an announcement from both parties is expected in the coming days.

Oh well, retired boxers are now on the exhibition match. I think this fight should have happened when they are still fighting, Pacquiao has the luxury to fight these two legendary boxers, specially Marquez. Information is sketchy at this point.

Perhaps Cotto will be the slight favourite here.
6  Economy / Gambling discussion / [Boxing]: Ancajas vs Rodriguez - April 10th on: March 23, 2021, 10:34:44 PM
@bisdak40, here's the fighter you all been waiting for hehehe, Jerwin Ancajas vs Javier Rodriguez of Mexico for Ancajas' IBF super flyweight belt, it will be his 9th defense of the crown, this April 10th.

This fight is slated for 2020, however, Rodriguez has some visa problem if my memory serves me right that's why the fight was postponed. Nevertheless, in about 3 weeks we will finally see another great Filipino champion defending his belt.

This is interesting fight, as we just seen Estrada (WBC,WBA) vs Chocolatito recently and we also have Srisaket Sor Rungvisai (who beat both fighters). And then Kazuto Ioka (WBO) of Japan.
7  Economy / Gambling discussion / [Boxing]: Canelo Alvarez vs Billy Joe Saunders - May 8 on: February 28, 2021, 09:35:37 PM
Canelo Alvarez-Billy Joe Saunders Fight Officially Announced, May 8 At Site TBD

Now that Canelo Alvarez has torn through the WBC’s mandatory challenger for his 168-pound championship, he can fully focus on the first of two title unification fights he hopes to win later this year.

As expected, Matchroom Boxing announced after Alvarez’s three-round demolition of Avni Yildirim on Saturday night that he’ll battle unbeaten WBO champion Billy Joe Saunders on May 8. The site of the Alvarez-Saunders bout wasn’t announced, but promoter Eddie Hearn informed before Alvarez defeated Yildirim that Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas and AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas, are the two venues under serious consideration.

OK, this is the fight that we all have been waiting for Canelo, another legit challenger in Billy Joe Saunders. BJS is solid in all area, well rounded, technically sound and I think he will give Canelo one hell of a fight here, more competitive obviously against Avni Yildirim. Canelo himself admitted that Saunders will be a difficult fight for him.

But I will still give the edge to Canelo here, probably by decision.

Naglabas ang ating SEC tungkol sa mga sumusunod na kompanya

(1) Jams Smart
(2) Solmax Global Limited and Igniter 100
(3) BitAccelerate

Ayon sa kanila, walang mga lisensya ang mga ito na magbenta o mag offer ng securities sa ating bansa. Ang pamilyar lang ako dito eh yung BitAccelerate, Nico David "bitaccelerate" SCAM review. Medyo matunog nga ito late last year pa sa atin.

12  Local / Pilipinas / Mga Pangunahing Kaalaman tungkol sa Lightning Network on: January 29, 2021, 05:08:25 AM
Talaan ng nilalaman

      1. Ano ang Lightning Network?
      2. Paano gamitin ito?
             a) Paglikha ng isang channel sa pagbabayad
             b) Pagpapadala at pagruruta ng mga pagbabayad
             c) Pagsasara ng channel
      3. Mga wallets at nodes
      4. Mga nakaplanong features
      5. Mga panganib ukol sa seguridad
      6. Mga magagamit at mapagkukunan ng impormasyon

1. Ano ang Lightning Network?

Ang Lightning Network ay isang kahalili sa tradisyunal na on-chain transaksyon sa Bitcoin. Hindi nito kumpletong pinalitan ang mga ito dahil kinakailangan pa rin ang mga transaksyong on-chain para sa pagsara at pagbubukas ng mga channel sa pagbabayad. Ang Lightning Network ay isang pangalawang layer solution at ganap na makasali. Ang mga transaksyon na ginawa sa pagitan ng mga kalahok ng Lightning Network ay walang negatibong epekto sa Bitcoin network. Pinapayagan ng Lightning Network ang instant at sobrang murang pagbabayad na P2P (micro).

Ang Lightning Network ay binubuo ng mga node na nagpapanatili ng mga channel sa pagbabayad kasama ang ilan sa mga kasali sa network.

2. Paano gamitin ito?

Upang simulang gamitin ang Lightning Network, kailangan mong gumamit ng isang katugmang software (see Mga wallets at nodes section). Ang bawat wallet ay may iba't ibang proseso ng pag-set up at feature kaya dapat kang tumingin ng isang gabay para sa iyong pagpili.

a) Paglikha ng isang channel sa pagbabayad

Ano nga ba ang isang channel sa pagbabayad?

Ang Payment Channel ay klase ng mga pamamaraan na idinisenyo upang payagan ang mga gumagamit na gumawa ng maraming mga transaksyon sa Bitcoin nang hindi ginagawang lahat ang mga transaksyon sa Bitcoin blockchain. Sa isang tipikal na channel ng pagbabayad, dalawang transaksyon lamang ang naidagdag sa blockchain ngunit  walang limitasyong o halos walang limitasyon ng mga pagbabayad ay maaaring gawin sa pagitan ng mga kasali.

b) Pagpapadala at pagruruta ng mga pagbabayad

Ang magkabilang partido ay nakikipag-ugnayan nang hindi nai-broadcast ang kasalukuyang estado ng kanilang kalakal sa blockchain. Pareho nilang itinatago ang kopya ng impormasyon ng channel. Sa tuwing nai-update ang isang channel, ang mga partido ay pumipirma sa isang transaksyon sa pangako na nag-iingat ng isang tala ng kasalukuyang estado ng channel. Ang mga transaksyong  ay maaaring mai-publish upang maisagawa ang pagsasara ng channel ng hindi nakikipag ugnayan sa isa't-isa.

Ang pagpapadala ng mga bayad sa Lightning Network ay posible hangga't mayroong hindi bababa sa isang landas mula sa iyo patungo sa ibang tao sa pamamagitan ng iba pang mga nodes na bukas ang channel sa pagitan nila. Ang lahat ng mga node sa landas ay dapat may sapat na liquidity. Ang bawat node ay ginagantimpalaan para sa pagruruta ng pagbabayad alinsunod sa kanilang patakaran sa pagbabayad. Ang malalaking pagbabayad ay maaaring hatiin at ilipat sa pamamagitan ng iba't ibang mga ruta salamat sa MPPs (mga pagbabayad na multipart); habang sinusuportahan sila ng lahat ng pagpapatupad, ang mga wallets ay hindi.

Sinisigurado na mayroong sapat na liquidity sapagkat ito ang pinaka mahirap na bagay para sa karamihan sa mga nagsisimula. Kapag binuksan mo ang isang channel sa isang tao, makakuha ka ng kapasidad na papalabas. Hindi ka makakatanggap ng anumang mga coins sa pamamagitan ng channel na iyon maliban kung gagastusin mo ang reserba ng channel (1-3% ng kapasidad ng channel). Mas maraming mga coins na gugugulin  mo, mas marami kang matatanggap. Kung may magbubukas ng isang channel para sa ,yo p makakakuha ka ng kapasidad na pagpasok at makakatanggap ka lamang sa pamamagitan ng channel na iyon maliban kung nakatanggap ka ng higit pang mga coins kaysa sa halaga ng reserba ng channel.

Ang ligtas na pagruruta sa pagbabayad ay hindi posible kung walang Hashed Timelock Contracts (HTLCs). Ang halimbawa sa ibaba ay nagpapaliwanag kung bakit kinakailangan ang mga ito.

1. Si Alice ay magbubukas ng isang channel sa pagbabayad kay Bob, at si Bob ay magbubukas ng isang channel sa pagbabayad kay Charlie.
2. Gusto ni Alice na bumili ng isang bagay mula kay Charlie sa halagang 1000 satoshis.
3. Bumubuo si Charlie ng isang random na numero at bumubuo ng SHA256 hash. Ibinigay ni Charlie ang hash kay Alice.
4. Ginamit ni Alice ang kanyang channel sa pagbabayad kay Bob upang bayaran siya ng 1,000 satoshis, ngunit idinagdag niya ang hash na ibinigay sa kanya ni Charlie sa pagbabayad kasama ang isang l kundisyon: upang makuha ni Bob ang bayad, kailangan niyang ibigay ang data na ginamit upang mabuo ang hash.
5. Ginagamit ni Bob ang kanyang channel kay Charlie upang bayaran siya ang 1000 satoshi, at nagdagdag si Bob ng isang kopya ng parehong kundisyon na inilagay ni Alice sa pagbabayad naman kay Bob.
6. Si Charlie ay mayroong orihinal na data na ginamit upang makabuo ng hash (tinatawag na pre-image), kaya magagamit ito ni Charlie upang matapos ang kanyang bayad at ganap na matanggap ang bayad mula kay Bob. Sa paggawa nito, kinakailangang gawing ni Charlie ang pre-image na magagamit naman Bob.
7. Ginagamit ni Bob ang pre-image upang tapusin ang kanyang bayad mula kay Alice

Ang mga mobile client ay nagtatag ng mga pribadong channel na hindi nakikilahok sa pagruruta ng pagbabayad.

c) Pagsasara ng channel

Ang mga channel sa pagbabayad ay maaaring isara kung ng pakikipagtulungan man on hindi (puwersahan).

Ang mga channel na hindi nakikipagtulungan sa pagsasara ay maaaring simulan anumang oras. Bagaman, walang katuturan na gawin ito kung ang iba pang node ay online at nakikipagtulungan naman. Bilang default, kailangang maghintay ang isa ng 144 na mga block (~24 na oras) bago magamit ang saradong transaksyon. Ang halaga ay napagpasyahan sa oras ng unang negosasyon sa channel. Tandaan na ang halagang ito ay maaaring maging mas mataas sa ilang mga kaso. Halimbawa, Eclair Mobile ay sini set ang delay sa 2048 blocks (~2 weeks) kung ang isang tao ay magbibigay-daan sa pagtanggap sa LN. Ang pagkaantala ay nagbibigay ng oras sa iba pang partido upang bumalik at mag-online at suriin kung na-publish ang pinakabagong transaksyon. Kung ang ibang partido ay nag-broadcast ng isang lumang transaksyon,  maaari itong bawiin at i-broadcast ulit na galing sa multang transaction sa loob ng pagkaka antala.

Ang mga channel na nakikipag tulungan sa pagsasarao ay maaaring pasimulan lamang kapag ang iba pang partido ay tumutugon. Ang pagsasara ng transaksyon ay maaaring magamit agad kung ang parehong partido ay sumang-ayon sa kasalukuyang estado ng channel.

3. Mga wallets at nodes

May mga iilan lamang na Lightning Network at ang bawat isa sa kanila ay posibleng maglaman ng ilang mga bugs na maaaring may resulta sa pagkawala ng mga pondo. Tatandaan na ang Lightning Network ay nasa beta pa rin. Ang mga wallet ng iOS at Android ay madaling gamitin at hindi nangangailangan ng maraming pag-set up kumpara sa LND, Eclair at c-lightning na ginagamit upang magpatakbo ng mga nodes na nag-iisa.

Mga Pagpapatupad

Desktop clients

Android clients

iOS clients

4. Mga nakaplanong features

  • Dual-funded channels - dalawang users sa halip na isa ay pwedeng mag pondo ng isang channel sa pagbabayad tulad ng origihal na inilirawan in the Lightning Network Paper.
  • Eltoo - eltoo ay magiging isang alternatibo sa kasalukuyang pamamaraan ng pag-ayos ng mga pagbabayad sa pagitan ng mga gumagamit. Ang mga pag-update sa Channels ay ginagawa sa pamamagitan ng pagbuo ng mga  chain of timelocked transactions. Kailangan ng isang soft fork para magamit ang eltoo sa Lightning Network (upang maiwasan ang pag-broadcast ng buong kasaysayan ng transaksyon sa pagitan ng mga gumagamit). dito makikita nyo kung anong opcodes ang kailangan baguhin.
  • Channel factories - ang mga umiiral na Lightning Network ang maaaring gamitin sa paglikha ng mga bagong channels na hindi na kinakailangang i broadcast ng alin man sa Bitcoin network. Karaniwan, ang isang channel ay bubuksan sa isang tao lamang. Sa channel factories mayroon tayo maraming tao na bumubuo ng isang mga miyembro ng grupo ay nagpapanatili ng mga channel sa pagitan nila. Mas maraming interesadong gumagamit = mas malaki ang pagtipid. Kung ang isa sa mga kasapi ay hindi nakikipagtulungan, ang mga umiiral na channel ay hindi maaapektuhan - bagaman ang mga bagong channel ay hindi maaaring likhain.

    • Splicing In/Out - sa kasalukuyan, hindi posible na magdagdag o mag-alis ng mga pondo mula sa mga channel nang hindi muling binubuksan ang mga ito.

    Mayroong ilang mga bagay na maaaring mabago sa Bitcoin code upang mapagbuti ang privacy. Ipinapakilala ang Schnorr, MAST and Taproot gagawing hindi makikilala ang mga transaksyon sa pagbubukas/pagsasara ng channel mula sa anumang iba pang nakaayos na transaksyon.

    5. Mga panganib ukol sa seguridad

    • Improper timelocks - sapat na oras ay dapat ibigay sakaling makipag-ugnayan sa mga hindi nakikipagtulungan o nakakahamak na mga counterparty ng channel.
    • Forced expiration spam - pagsasara ng maraming mga channel sa halos parehong oras ay maaaring humantong sa pagpuno ng buong block. Kung ang spam ay tumatagal ng sapat na oras, ang ilang mga nai-timelock na transaksyon ay maaaring maging tama.
    • Data loss - karamihan sa mga kliyente ng Lightning Network ay hindi nagbibigay ng maaasahang paraan ng pag-backup. Ang ibang partido ay nag broadcast ng isang transaksyon na may multa sa ganitong kaso. Data Loss Protection is available in all implementations.
    • Coin theft - karamihan sa mga node ng Lightning Network ay gumagana nang 24/7 at nagtatago ng kanilang mga coins sa mga sa hot wallet na mas madali para sa isang mang-atake na nakawin ang mga ito.
    • Colluding miner attacks - Ang mga minero ay may kapangyarihan na magpasya kung aling mga transaksyon ang nais nilang isama sa block at pwede nilang tanggihan ang ilang mga transaksyon na ginamit ng isang umaatake. Ang pag-atake na ito ay malamang na hindi mangyari dahil sa mataas na gastos at pagiging kumplikado (lahat ng minero ay dapat rin makipagtulungan.).

Perhaps we may have missed this one, video Premiered Dec 31, 2020 and almost a month now, the stream is still up in Youtube. So we need to report this site so that it will be taken down.

If the transaction does not process properly, please try by sending the same amount to the BTC address again, and it should go through. Your original transaction will be refunded as you can only participate once.

Look at those terms though, double whammy for those who are going to send twice. But the good thing is that the address is still empty, meaning no one has fallen for this trick.

14  Economy / Scam Accusations / {Warning} Fake Phishing site of on: January 27, 2021, 06:49:11 PM
Again, criminals and scammers are taking advantage of the latest finance protocol (lend and borrow crypto) hype, as Aave hits record $288 high as demand for flash loans and staking increases.

So now, they have created a fake and phishing site.

Phishing Site:

And if you click any version of it, it will offer you two, version 1 and version 2

And if will automatically go to a page wherein you need to connect your wallet. The thing is, with the original site, you can still continue without connecting you wallet, by clicking "or continue with wallet". But with the fake and phishing site, this option is available but it is not working, meaning they are forcing you to connect your wallet right away, very clever. So be very careful.

Also according to this post, [ALEART] Scam Aave Wallet asking for private key, Aave doesn't have any official app in Google play, so if you find one, we have to report it immediately.

15  Economy / Scam Accusations / {Warning} a Indian crypto exchange data has been dump on: January 25, 2021, 10:39:53 AM
A cyber threat actor known as "ShinyHunters" supposedly posted a data dump of a hack crypto exchange Buyucoin, ( an Indian crypto exchange.

The Buyucoin archive leaked by the threat actor this week includes three different data dumps allegedly of the exchange's MongoDB database. This archive contains three tar files named after the date the database was dumped, which was on June 1st, 2020, July 14th, 2020, and September 5th, 2020.

It is unknown if the threat actor performed these dumps on those dates or if they are backups created by Buyucoin.

These database dumps contain tables for user records, cryptocurrency trade transactions, linked bank account information, and others used internally by the exchange.

The user records table contains the information for 161,487 members. It includes email addresses, country, bcrypt hashed passwords, mobile numbers, and Google sign-in tokens if used when registering an account at the site.

So I would advise our Indian crypto enthusiast, if they have an account on that exchange, it is better to update your password just to be sure. Also, there could be incoming phishing emails once this data reaches another groups so be very careful as well.

17  Economy / Gambling discussion / [Boxing]: Naoya Inoue vs Michael Dasmarinas (No date yet) on: January 15, 2021, 10:03:08 PM
Japan's Inoue will have to defend his belt against IBF mandatory Michael Dasmarinas of the Philippines.

Naoya Inoue's continued quest for bantamweight supremacy will now include a Hot and Spicy mandatory title defense.

The undefeated three-division and reigning unified 118-pound titlist will next face Philippines’ Michael ‘Hot and Spicy’ Dasmarinas, the longtime IBF mandatory challenger in waiting. A scheduled purse bid hearing to determine promotional rights was canceled after the two sides reached an agreement, IBF representatives informed

A firm fight date has yet to be established for the bout, which will take place in Inoue’s native Japan. Travel restrictions due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic serve as the main roadblock in officially scheduling the contest, which will mark Inoue’s third defense of the IBF belt and second as a unified titlist.

So this is finalised already so it will be Dasmarinas and not John Riel Casimero. It's a long waiting for Dasmarinas, who have been the mandatory since 2019, but he has to wait after the WBSS bantamweight tournament. Would love to see Dasmarinas win this, however, I don't think that anyone can beat Inoue at 118 lbs right now, maybe except Casimero

So let's wait for the final date, we still have the Covid-19 situation though, I speculate that the fight could be held around May-June.

19  Bitcoin / Legal / Owner of Bitcoin Exchange Sentenced to Prison for Money Laundering on: January 14, 2021, 04:40:40 PM
Owner of Bitcoin Exchange Sentenced to Prison for Money Laundering

A Bulgarian national who was convicted by a federal jury for his role in a transnational and multimillion-dollar scheme to defraud American victims was sentenced today to 121 months in prison.

Acting Assistant Attorney General David P. Burns of the Justice Department’s Criminal Division, U.S. Attorney Robert M. Duncan Jr. of the Eastern District of Kentucky, and Resident Agent in Charge John Oldham of the U.S. Secret Service made the announcement.

U.S. District Court Judge Robert E. Weir sentenced Rossen G. Iossifov, 53, formerly of Bulgaria, for conspiracy to commit a Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act (RICO) offense and conspiracy to commit money laundering.

According to trial evidence, Iossifov owned and managed RG Coins, a cryptocurrency exchange headquartered in Sofia, Bulgaria. According to the evidence at trial, Iossifov knowingly and intentionally engaged in business practices designed to both assist fraudsters in laundering the proceeds of their fraud and to shield himself from criminal liability. At least five of Iossifov’s principal clients in Bulgaria were Romanian scammers, who belonged to a criminal enterprise known in court records as the Alexandria (Romania) Online Auction Fraud (AOAF) Network.

More specifically, according to court documents and evidence presented at trial, Iossifov and his co-conspirators participated in a criminal conspiracy that engaged in a large-scale scheme of online auction fraud that victimized at least 900 Americans. Romania-based members of the conspiracy posted false advertisements to popular online auction and sales websites — such as craigslist and eBay — for high-cost goods (typically vehicles) that did not actually exist. Once victims were convinced to send payment, the conspiracy engaged in a complicated money laundering scheme wherein domestic associates would accept victim funds, convert these funds to cryptocurrency, and transfer proceeds in the form of cryptocurrency to foreign-based money launderers. Iossifov was one such foreign-based money launderer who facilitated this final step in the scheme.

So this guy was sentenced to 10 years for helping Bulgarian scammers laundered dirty money thru the exchange that he has established.  And he himself make money out of it amounting to $200k. The other co-conspirators have been sentence as well but some remain at large. And according to the documents as well, they duped at least 900 Americans, close to $7 million, hence the heavy penalty. It was a joint effort in the part of US, Romania and Bulgaria.
