Just a heads up.  My YoBit account was briefly hacked for around 0.0033 BTC.  it was not much and not a big deal, i locked the account, changed the password and i am waiting for them to unlock it, but the day before these are the things downloaded on the same computer where i logged in

yocoin wallet
chemcoin wallet
viacoin wallet and
whitecoin wallet

i have actually dealt with some of these in the past, yocoin for sure but i found this to be interesting

i wanted to mine a few yocoins and store them, just an odd feeling i was going with.

i downloaded and synched the yocoin wallet and then went to tekboy and cpu mined for the night while i slept.  in the morning i checked the site stats http://tekyboy.tk/miner/YZMffYQQUDhvEXQJx7tMjmzkkzM1u762rG and was as confused as i always am with that site, so i grabbed the address i used and search the blockchain, this is where it gets weird.  i opened the whitecoin wallet instead of yocoin, the whitecoin wallet has a built in block explorer and before i realized what i was doing i pasted the yocoin address into the search for the whitecoin block chain and i actually got a result.  it said the balance was 1000 with a 51 coin fee.  that is about the right number for slow ass cpu mining yocoin, but it came from another coins blockchain...that is just weird, not really virus or hacking weird.....

the other thing is that i never received anything for the little bit of mining, that is very plausible as yocoin is dying and the mining payments may be waiting on the chain to move, either way don't really mind, just more oddness

it is a small slow computer just for holding wallets and mild scrypt mining, no other downloads take place, no games, no porn(lol), i doubt it could go to facebook without putting me to sleep while loading, so somewhere in those wallets was where the hit took place.  i know yocoin, it is dying and dead, but not a virus.  viacoin is dead, but established. i have used the whitecoin wallet once or twice, i know little about the coin, but never has issues with it.  not pointing a finger, just talking, but that leaves chemcoin, which i do not know much about and have heard nothing bad, but i guess that could be it unless i am missing something.

oh, and i do the config files myself if need be.  all wallets got a connection before or after loading nodes.  the only software used was cpuminer, straight from github.  just putting all the info out there

You can, see the lower left part of the thread, as the thread starter there is an option to move the topic besides the lock topic option.
