Looking at the "my account" section seems to show me that the last 4 blocks that have finished confirming have not added themselves into the "confirmed reward" for BTC. I don't know about the NMC totals since I wasn't paying attention there, but I expected a payout overnight when btc exceeded my threshhold total, and that didn't happen. I check on the site this morning and the "confirmed reward" number hadn't risen from last nights number despite 4 blocks I have rewards listed for having finished confirming. Don't know if some prior to those 4 have the same issue since I have a set of 7 blocks before those 4 that list 'none' for me (don't mine overnight).

Something up with the confirmation process or the portion that adds the awards to our totals?

I stopped payouts few hours ago, resolving one issue. Processing & payouts will be enabled again in one or two hours, sorry for delay.

Summary of what happen today:

Somebody hacked my backup machine with pool data hosted on Linode and steal 3094 BTC ("hot" coins ready for payouts). Cold backup was not affected in any way by this hack.

It looks that also user database has been compromised. Although passwords are stored in SHA1 with salt, I strongly recommend to change your password on the pool immediately.

Robery of Bitcoins has no impact to pool users, I'm covering the loss from my own income (although it means that many months of my work is wasted  Roll Eyes ).

Continue of story: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=66916.0

Please discuss the issue in thread above, thank you!

Sent a donation, sorry it couldn't be more but it was about 1/4th of what I still had in my wallet at the time.

Changed password also. Thank you for being honest here Slush, too many would deny there was a problem and do who knows what to cover it up.

On mining behind a firewall.
You can install DDWRT on a router you use at home.
Then setup an SSH tunnel using putty to it via port 443 and use it as a proxy for your miners that are inside the firewall.
You can also use it as a web browsing proxy so "they" cannot see what you are looking at with web traffic monitors like a procera appliance.
I use such a setup for added security when RDP'n into my boxes at home.

cablepair, actually 3k BTC was not *so much* from the view of pool's turnover. There are still few hardcore miners who store tens or hundreds bitcoins on the account. Hot storage usually fluctuate between 1000-2200 BTC, sadly this time it was above average limit, because more people were near payout threshold. Decision "how much to store in wallet" is always hard, it's compromise between security and user comfort. I choose user comfort, because sometimes I'm out for many days. Yesterday I re-evaluated it and now I'll, of course, try to keep as low balance as possible, because I really cannot affort another issue like this. Unfortunately there's no reason to think that other providers, even non-VPS, are more safer that well-known and widely respected Linode...

I strongly recommend to change your password on the pool immediately.

I have tried many times now.

The password reset page says:
"Forgotten your password? Enter your e-mail address below, and I'll e-mail instructions for setting a new one."

I input my email address ( and it isn't some gmail one or similar, and I have checked the trash folder to make sure it didn't get marked as spam and
moved there ) and I have yet to receive anything to let me change my password.

Or is it the worker password one sets on the Edit Worker page one needs to reset?

Portnoy, does it print some confirmation message, that email has been sent? If it just refresh page, you're using wrong email (and I'm sorry for stupid error message handling).

I have done the same, multiple times, with the message:

Quote
Password reset successful

I've e-mailed you instructions for setting your password to the e-mail address you submitted. You should be receiving it shortly.

And yet email has yet to be received. Neither have I received payout notifications since October, although the box is checked and the payout is received. Thanks.

I get no confirmation message.  I can't remember what email I originally used... will have to try it with another one until I find the right one I suppose...

/edit  Okay found the right email addy I used... got my pass changed. Thanks.

I like your honesty and thank you for a reliable service for 9 months now. Just sent a small donation. Will send some more BTCs from NMC exchanges in the near future. I heard crowd funding, no matter how small fractions it may be, can be a very powerful tool if there are enough people doing it. Hope many people will make small donations at least as a band aid for your losses. Would just regret to see you having worked for us for free for a couple months. Thank you everyone.

Donated 0.22 BTC and later 0.5 BTC, freshly mined btw.

Hi guys,

we are mining namecoins here, so I thought I would let you know that I contacted mtgox to ask if they would add namecoin support for trading. The guy at helpdesk opened a feature request ticket for me.

https://support.mtgox.com/entries/21098553-add-namecoin

Just go there and click "Me too!".

I like that idea. Maybe that will help bolster them and (hopefully) increase their value.

I got a reply from mtgox to my support request:

Hello Janek,

Our management group said that they are considering it as it is on our to-do list. However, we do not have an estimated time to implement it, but once we do, we will definitely announce it. Thank you for your patience in the process.

Thanks,

MtGox.com Team
