1  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / PCIe riser(USB 3.0) WHEA errors on: July 21, 2017, 02:03:12 PM
I recently swapped out old powered ribbon risers (a 16x to 16x and 1x to 16x) for the ver 006c 16x-1x usb 3.0 risers in a rig, but with the newer risers i get WHEA PCIE errors in the event logs at about 10-15 per second. The hash rates are the same and the system as a whole is still stable.

Trying risers that work on another miner that doesn't produce these events do the same on this miner, and the risers i was trying also work on my other miner without any problems.
The motherboard is a MSI Z170 Tomahawk with latest BIOS, a Pentium G3560 and 2x MSI RX580 Armor. Running on Windows 10 64bit.

This will sound like Windows/Mac hate (and let's admit it is a bit), but more and more viruses will target Windows to mine coins and/or steal Wallets.

So never have wallet on Windows - if you have it have been probably already stolen (hopefully you encrypted it) or it's going to be. Even if you have newest version of firewall and antivirus it won't fix essential bugs and/or security holes in your OS.

The fact that it is windows is fairly moot, I mean windows has always been a target given its market share in home users and office spaces, if apple or *nix pulled off the same trick back in the eighties and gobbled up users into the nineties, virus/trojans would be *nix based.

They didn't bother too encrypt the strings in the DLL and there isn't anything else in there other than the URL to download and the command lines to start minerd. Thats not to say that the miner doesn't carry something since it looks like they built it from sources with mingw64 and it executes as a normal minerd from the command line, also the version number reflects this based on the last commit on Github for cpuminer-multi and its build date, but original exploit/script could have had addition payloads, but at least I don't keep any wallets on this or any always connected machines.

Any idea where you got it from?
Trying to figure that one out, A buddy of mine also has it aswell and never had the primecoin version on their machine. Most of the sites we have in common are pools for various cryptocoins so I guess theres some bad actors out there.

That would be the logical assumption and would have to agree with you there. Visit any chinese pools lately or some lesser known sites? Kind of why I've limited the pools I'm willing to signup now to a handful. If they are willing to infiltrate malware on your machine.. what do you think they'll do with your id/passwords.. hopefully you use diff ones for each pool you sign up to Tongue
That comment seems oddly racist Cheesy but oddly enough no, I do have a short list but untill I have some solid proof I don't want to start spreading FUD about pools.
I use keypass with long random strings for passwords and never repeat so not really an issue

Previously I had found a stealth miner on my machine mining Primecoin (https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=607930) but,
Despite having re-installed Windows and being careful to avoid running any browser outside of a sandbox and not installing java, Today I noticed it had returned sometime in the past 2 days and its a new version.

)Now its downloading minerd from this location https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/s/6yug7j4d6hl83o5/wmpnetwk.bin
)Its mining Monero on mine.Moneropool.com using this address 4B6L2v81ehU6JFFxMH9AADhUPqe3zjZE8TUcQFzTSUwY5iESpPVwi9AhQ8HjRhPtqn9sPdDHm3qy4cb JD2bxppr6G7GN8fW
I'm not the only one affected since if you check the address on the pool you can see its still mining with a high hash rate for Monero.

wmpnetwk.dll (51,200) https://www.virustotal.com/en/file/e2e6b6938879142c4e35542b5fe8d3eeec7bf9e682f915213fda009097c3878e/analysis/1401909211/
8  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: Found a Trojan Miner not caught by any A/V I've thrown at it. on: May 14, 2014, 07:45:40 AM
I'm confused:

1) Wouldn't this show up as a process under task manager?

2) Wouldn't properly set security permissions require user assent for any downloads?

1. I think it did show up, but he needed to do further digging to find what it did, what it ran, etc.

2. No, as long as it doesn't need Administrative Access, it can do what it wants without a dialog. For most computers, downloading a file doesn't require UAC, so it can do it mostly undetected.
The process that showed up as named "Windows media sharing service" running on 2 cpus, which was just a copy of xptMiner running with some command line options, that was hidden and set to low priority, This was being run by a small DLL file that quit after starting the miner. Outside of that there was no other unusual process running that I could find or any strange open ports that I couldn't trace back too legitimate software.

exploits do just that, they bypass security by taking advantage of a bug or flaw in software to gain Administrator/root access without the OS/user knowing it happened, then executing what ever code/command they want. When its not detected, blocked or known, it's general referred to as a "0day exploit".

For now I'm going too assume it came in from a website that exploits browsers to get the miner on without much intervention from scans/resident anti-virus since the DLL is fairly basic it doesn't set off allot of red flags.

Forgot about virustotal, here is what it has to say,
https://www.virustotal.com/en/file/fbcfc2edd8b61f92bc15c07b2bb19597eab84b0cdac843d07229f0c73989829d/analysis/1400026612/

I restored the machine from an image anyway but in the mean time its been found on another machine that has never run any wallets or miner software just browsing and some gaming.
10  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Found a Trojan Miner not caught by any A/V I've thrown at it. on: May 13, 2014, 07:05:18 PM
A little heads up,
Recently I found xptMiner was being silently installed on my windows wallet/miner PC. After unpacking with UPX and digging around the DLL I've found its mining (prime?) with the following credentials on YPool,

-u x12121212121212.15992C5B5E80 -p E64001AE8673
-u x12121212121212.319302B4FC9B -p 8EAD3FED8A47

A DLL downloads the miner from Dropbox using these 2 URLs:
https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/s/ae4kr9qozv9h7qu/wmpnetwk64.bin
https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/s/deyrqj982z2nvmq/wmpnetwk32.bin

Hides its self in "\Users\{USERNAME}\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Recent" as 2 files "wmpnetwk.dll" and "wmpnetwk.exe" with a registry key to auto start the DLL as the EXE seems to be an untouched version of xptMiner that gets executed with a command line with the above usernames and passwords. The files can't be seen in explorer but they are visible from a Command Prompt(cmd).
Still cant find where the DLL is coming from despite removing it twice manually already and doing scans with various tools, so probably just going to restore an image of the OS to take care of rootkit/installer and be done with it.

Edit: seems a friend has it on one of his as-well.

Exchange? Doing something? Lucky :-p I cant even sell

Patience, those "queued" transaction take for freaking ever bu they do go through, 12.8 BTC confirms this for me Smiley

my BTC withdrawal transaction is unconfirmed on blockchain after 10 hours. Can you explain this?? Sad

same issue with a 2.54 BTC withdrawal. I wonder if such an unconfirmed transaction can be re-sent.
into the Bitcoin network by the receiver such that a miner will eventually pick it up.


Does it mean it is an orphaned transaction and we have lost our btc. I dont understand the reason why.

and I authorized the withdrawal from email link.

More likely someone was cheap with the miner fee, if it's on the blockchain you should get it .... eventually. Not showing as unconfirmed just means your wallet never got the broadcast, this is normal.

Name your 10 favourite anime series so I can decide whether this coin is worth mining. Wink

only 10? your no true fan!

10 is the very minimum limit, I just wanted to see if they put Naruto, Bleach, Death Note, or a few others on there.

If you wanted to impress, you should of mentioned legend of the overfiend lol

So the fan of Sapphire r9 290x is really loud and my wife dosnt want it to run more then 45% speed
so currently i run it 725/1250 i20 and it gives me 680khs @ 89c (85% fan 1022/1500 i20 gives like 980kh/s 88c but sounds like a jet engine)
just wondering if someone has some has some higher khs settings without temperature +noise problems
Easly fixed, you just file for divorce before she can take half your coins!  Grin Grin

4 280x cards even under volted is going to be over 1000KW/h, 4x with 1.087v and1040core is taking 1050 watts off the wall for me, with stock 1.2 volts its roughly another 50 watts per card.

Have you tried lowering the voltage bit by bit till its unstable, I have ASUS cards that come with 1.2VDDC lowering that to the 1.087VDDC to 1.1VDDC range doesn't affect my stability and lowers my temps by a decent amount, 6c for my hottest 15c for my coolest.
