So I just clicked 'Show new replies to your posts' and I'm presented with this:



I haven't posted in any of those. Looks like all of 'my posts' are about Yacoin in some way.

Anyone else experiencing something like this??? I have changed my passwords - is there a trojan in YACOIN?Huh?


Edit:

it's minerd from the yacoin thread.

Check 'my' previous posts.

I haven't lost any Bitcoin, don't have any on this PC. I did notice some abnormal behaviour with my PC yesterday... It slowed to a halt (I have a very powerful PC) so I switched it off thinking something is very wrong. I guess I forgot about it and carried on with life.

What the fuck??

Riiiiiiiiiiiight.

ROI is not a verb, the term you're looking for is 'to break even'.

I would stay away from alt coins unless someone you trust has reviewed the code.

Looks like whoever it is is still trying to f*ck with my account... Keep getting session expiry errors when trying to reply and browse the site. Have to log in again every time.

The original minerd code is actually fine. You do have to realize that most antiviruses will flag it as a virus because of Botnet operators.

OP and second post seem to have downloaded minerd that was modified for YAC. If the source code wasn't posted, you shouldn't have downloaded it. Look into compiling source code yourself instead of downloading pre-compiled binaries. ALWAYS CHECK if source code is available.

Could you provide a link to the miner file you downloaded? The bitcointalk thread would be best. It appears as if whoever wrote that code (potentially YAC founder) did it to promote his coin. Did you guys look at the posts that were made to see what they said? Are they promoting the hell out of the coin?

TBH there's not a lot anyone could get from this PC and I am pretty reckless with this machine I'll admit! New installs are a regular occurrence.... Of course I was stupid to download those binaries, it's that whole human nature (greed) thing ya know?

P.S. I am a 1st year Software Engineering Student, haven't learnt a whole lot of programming but I do know how to compile code! F7!!!  Grin Grin Grin

Compiling code is a must when it comes to the stuff floating around here. Also try to read through the code quickly if you understand any of it. Never EVER use pre-compiled binaries though. I would work on disinfecting your computer, as the virus probably includes a keylogger.

I would stay away from alt coins unless someone you trust has reviewed the code.

I would also stay away from anything bitcoin related unless someone you trust has reviewed the code  Roll Eyes

That's even better advice!
