So is it safe to keep mining on Stratum now? I don't want my mining power working for the profit of some hacker..

Yes, stratum.bitcoin.cz is now pointed to Amazon EC2 instances, which are safe.

I just used netstat and reverse lookup to confirm where the existing stratum connections were going (they were still opened to ovh address 94.23.174.94 in my case).
Restarted workers where it was needed to make sure they connect to EC, 54.214.x.x.

Hope this helps.

When I couldn't get stratum.bitcoin.cz to connect an hour or so ago I switched to stratum2.bitcoin.cz (remembering your advice from the DDoS attack) and it seems to have been mining normally. Is that OK for you?

No work is lost, but mining on Amazon is recommended. If you restart the miner using stratum.bitcoin.cz, you'll be switched there.

seems v___.bitcoin.cz points to OVH...    minning on this adress since the DDoS !

IIRC, you own this work too, so things seems all fine !


The most important point I want to write :

Thank you so much Slush, You're the King of pool operators !   I'll always mine at your pool !

Thank you very much, you rule !

I got two Questions.
 Are my Bitcoins safe and Do I need to change pools?

(I am a 1MB block supporter who thinks all users should be using Full-Node clients)
Avoid the XT shills, they only want to destroy bitcoin, their hubris and greed will destroy us.

1 - Your bitcoin in the Slush pool = no lost for you.
Slush have a nice system to keep most BTC offline, so if lost occurs, he will be able to refund from his pocket, as he stated earlier !

2 - No need to change pool : mining on stratum.bitcoin.cz is safe.

Imo, no problem at all.. Slush is fast to respond to emergency, professional and trustworthy pool operator who communicate with users.

Slush first post I know about it : https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=1976.msg1925445#msg1925445
Other following Slush post confirm we are all fine mining there Smiley

So the site was hacked but any loss will be be covered but when the site is back up we need to consider the strength of our E-mail passwords because the hacker got those?

Don't use the same password on bitcoin.cz as you do on any other accounts.  Password re-use is probably the biggest offense when it comes to problems between the keyboard and chair.  If you are using the same or similar passwords, change them now, especially on accounts connected to this potential leak.  It's just a good practice.  Chances are, nothing will happen.  But why chance it?

If you don't already, use KeePass, LastPass, OnePass or some password safe that programmatically generates complex passwords and use that password for your bitcoin.cz connected email account.  That is about all you can do.

Change your password when Slush brings up the website too..  Just to be safe....

most phishing for me is check the full headers to see if it's legit, go to the web site directly ( not from any mail link ) and log in that way and see if the mail really came from them..... when fake, there are a TON of reporting sites ( depending on what scam is being pulled )
BTW I am Canadian and after looking up some Doctor Who info on yahoo.co.uk decided to open an email account and... now i get tons of fake UK bank ' your account is locked until you click and filll in you are informations ' ( miss spellings USUALY ARE in the fake ones ) spams.

Hope this helps and gives a laugh or too to spite the current situation... BTW Slush, gettin more hits from getwork than Stratum, don't really care if it counts or not since i'm CPU mining and don't usualy get over 2000 uBTC for less than 4 hits.  Just thought you should look in to it.

apparently, if you don't hold it you don't own it is true for servers as well Sad

That's the point. Next time I'll be the only person who'll have a physical access to the machine. No f***ing web consoles, email recovery features and no 3rd party administrators next time. I'm really tired by these situations and incompetent people who are harming my own reputation.

I would suggest to setup the servers as a servers with sensitive data. That means even if the attacker or whoever will get the physical server he can only destroy it but he cannot steal the data. All my servers which needs high security or have some sensitive data have only the system not encrypted. The data partitions are on different logical lvolumes which are crypted. that means even in single user mode no harm is done. Slush you are doing good job with pool and btc related but you should consider to build servers the way it cannot be compromised. ;-)

What about the user database?  Was it compromised?  I'd hate to see bitcoins sent to the wrong address.

I have a database snapshot taken before bad guys overtook the database. So there's no reason to think payout addresses have been modified. Any change of wallet on pool profile requires email confirmation by account owner so I think we're on safe side here.

Unfortunately the user database can be considered as compromised, so the attacker knows user's emails :-(.
How were the passwords hashed?
