If you have a shitty password. Use a password generator like KeePass and make it as long and convoluted as you want. 64+ random characters and symbols should slow them down.

So much easier if you just produce some mining software that copies the wallet.dat and key logs the users passwords Wink

Who in their right mind would trust mining software from people who run scam pools anyway?

Don't keep your wallet on the same machine you mine on... EVER!
