Its just nice to see the guy in charge actively posting with users. Ive only been mining for a few weeks but other pools don't know what they are missing.

I agree. Slush is doing good work, and his work is appreciated.

As someone pretty new to mining however, this just highlights to me how volatile this field is. After having had the little I mind stolen at bitlc the last time I tried mining, and now the DDoS and hacking here, and couple that with all the other warnings on these forum, I feel that bitcoins aren't for the weak of heart.

Plus it doesn't help that I used a password at Slush's which I use elsewhere (because it looked like the site wouldn't accept one with a comma, so I reverted to something simple), so now I'm worried about that.

Very sorry to hear about this Slush. I hope other pool admins take note, this is now a billion dollar industry and DDOS, hacking, fraud will increase exponentially too as coins are very hard to trace.

I have continued mining for the pool, but would also appreciate an ETA on various aspects.

Website beign Up so earnings can be viewed.
Commencement of payouts.

Even as a rough guide, at least it will stop me and others from continually bugging you while you're busy.

I was just about to ask the same:

Quote from: anti
The bitcoins I have earned on this pool should have been confimed and payed out by now, because last time I checked (about 2 hours before the break-in) it was about 30 confirmations away from being confirmed with respect to my payout minimum. However, no payouts have occurred as of now. I guess this is also because the pool was hacked? When can we expect the payouts to continue? I mean the BTC prices are quite good at the moment and I'd very like to sell before they fall again. Please fix this soon! Thanks!

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

Way to not bother reading the thread, brainiac.  Roll Eyes

I wish butterfly labs was as open with people as Slush and others in the bitcoin community are with what's going on.  I asked for a refund 2 days ago on part of my orders and I haven't heard anything back.  (Surprise surprise?)

Another site that fails to update people with truth, open-ness and honesty is bitinstant.  I no longer trade through them because of the problems they have been having.  They promise and do not deliver.

Slush is the man and I will continue to mine with the pool.  Thank you for the updates and transparency.  We all get more careful and diligent due to times like these and I personally appreciate your updates and contribution and dedication to the bitcoin community.

This.  I'll be mining with slush until I stop mining bitcoins. 

Any chance of running a Litecoin pool, too, slush?  That'd make me a very happy camper. Smiley

Thanks for all the support!

If you do decide to implement ltc please do it like D7 pool.
His UI and ease of use is the best of all the mining sites!

On a long enough time line, the survival rate for everyone drops to zero .

Everyone mining with Slush, restart your mining clients and make sure the stratum domain resolves to an address in the Amazon cloud. It's 54.214.10.135 when I check here.
Before I restarted mine it still used the old compromised server which is still running. I'm not sure they will be able to use the bitcoins mined there but I hate the thought of it.

Stratum servers have been migrated to (not-compromised) EC2 backends, I just see few first connections. So mining continues and no action is required by you.

I'll set up database and website in few hours on trusted machines, so the pool will be in normal operation soon.

I'd have my EC2 servers penetration tested several times by big companies because my sites take online payments - they couldn't get in - I'll feel safer when your in the EC2 cloud Slush...

FYI Pool hashrate is still above 7Thash/s and it reports new blocks normally. Please be patient, I'm working hardly to get website back online.

The pool has been hacked. Fortunately I noticed it fast enough, so I made database snapshot seconds before attackers overtake the database machine. I lost some amount of bitcoins, but I'll be able to recover it from my pocket. For now I'm evaluating what's next to do, because all machines in OVH has been compromised and they cannot be trusted anymore.

Wow, glad to know my BTC0.002 is safe, LOL.... seriously, this amount is so small, please don't worry about it with me. If it helps, just apply it to those who need payment or toward the server. I'm not doing this really for the money, I'm doing it because it's fun and there is a small payout which I can then track to measure progress with.

Thanks for the rapid response, slush.

My opinions represent only my own views... most of the time. Sometimes I argue because I can.

Hmm for stratum.bitcoin.cz its reporting a 77.93 address for me.  I did a flush DNS and complete reboot.  Was mining LTC all night.  Its connected and accepting.

EDIT guiminer uses api2.bitcoin.cz which redirects to stratum.bitcoin.cz.  I tried stratum2.bitcoin.cz directly and it wouldn't work.  Updated hosts file for now hopefully no DNS changes coming up soon Smiley

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?

1. Great job slush! 

2. Passwords are generally low entropy.  If you've used your mining pw elsewhere change it now.

Strange, ewitte. But DNS's live their own lives sometimes. Looks like all stratum records have several IP's so one of these should be valid:
    stratum.bitcoin.cz, A, 54.214.10.150
    stratum.bitcoin.cz, A, 54.214.4.50
    stratum.bitcoin.cz, A, 54.214.10.101
    stratum.bitcoin.cz, A, 54.214.10.134
    stratum.bitcoin.cz, A, 54.214.10.135

And slush: Keep up the great work! Hope you'll get some sleep eventually. I'm sure the Amazon cloud will be a safe solution.

They are welcome to mine for me if they wish its not the same as my login Wink
