So I've been watching for the past couple of days. I've noticed slush's pool go from 700 GHash/sec to over 860 GHash/sec in just a couple of days.

I've also been watching the hash distribution pie chart on Bitcoin Watch: http://www.bitcoinwatch.com/ It seemed pretty constant over a couple days, each pool was growing proportionally to the other so that the overall distribution didn't change much.

Discussion: Where the hell did all that "Other" come from? I could have sworn last night "Other" was ~15% of the pie. Now it looks like ~45%. Anyone have ideas what could have happened? Did some hacker just unleash a massive botnet?

I've been told it is because of the new difficulty, and that it will auto adjust over the next 24 hours or so.

If it isn't because of the difficulty increase, then yes it's obvious a botnet owner or some instance with massive computational power joined the network. Total capacity went up thousands of ghash within 2-3 days.

There should be some automated message created on these forums at every difficulty increase so we don't keep seeing this same thread over and over.

Difficulty increases throw off most hashrate calculators until enough blocks have been solved at the new level.

Some of the other could be simplecoin.us

As well as solo miners
