I just got an email advertising this wonderfull scam

I thought there already was a topic on it but couldn't find it so i thought i'd put this up as a warning.

It's funny how hard they try to make this look legit, the awards are epic!

DO NOT USE THIS SOFTWARE!

Lol, I love how the security seals directly link to the downloadable executable.

Serious marketing work into this. Even the comments seem like a carefully designed scam.

I respect the fuck out of that site, too fucking funny.

Only funny if I ignore the real world implications that site could have on some people who have maybe too much invested in a non secure form of currency.

I got this email too.

Whoever did this did an amazing job on the website. Everything looks believable to me except those stupid badges. I sent them an email asking them to post on this thread.

Has anybody actually downloaded/scanned their software? I'm not going to be the test case for that!

I actually figure someone on these forums is smart enough to crack open the file and see if you can find the return address on it Smiley   Where does this person want everything they steal going back to?

Yes, two of us on -otc have been tinkering with it.  It apparently connects to some FTP site (74.208.186.97) and attempts to download a file... using PORT... so it won't actually accomplish anything on hosts behind NAT.  (Not that I can tell.)  We have FTP access to that site currently and are monitoring things.  Will report more as we learn more.

Tips are always welcome and can be sent to 1CZ8QgBWZSV3nLLqRk2BD3B4qDbpWAEDCZ

Thanks to ye, we have the final piece.

That's just the tip of the iceberg.  Wait until we have people that sell accelerators with simple fakery in the client wrt MH/s.  There's enough randomness in mining that I'm sure *some* people will be fooled.

I'm rather good with Linux.  If you're having problems with your mining rig I'll help you out remotely for 0.05.  You can also propose a flat-rate for some particular task.  PM me for details.

lol @ the fake usernames on the comments.

Nearly everything is in two words each capitalized, like CheBerry or ConfusedUser.

If you're going to go bipolar then at least do it right

When refreshing the FTP directory periodically, three .dat files appeared.  I have downloaded them and removed them from the FTP server.  After starting up bitcoind with them I will report on any addresses they contain that have been seen in the block chain.  If they turn out to be your addresses, create a new wallet on a secure machine and spend all of your coins to one of its addresses ASAP.

EDIT: More keep popping up every so often.  I am downloading and deleting all that I find.

Some of the fake users seem upset at some issues to make it more believable, then other fake users answer them. What a shameless thief!

Seems like the domain is registered at http://1and1.com/ but with some kind of whois hiding. We should probably report this as it's hosting a virus/trojan or something?

Sorry for the slow progress, working as fast as I can.

EDIT: At the request of several people, I am spending all of the coins in each address I come across to a secure wallet on my machine.  I will publish a complete list of compromised addresses and where the coins they held are after I finish processing the (growing) collection of wallets that I have.  We can iron out claim details later.  I have a process fetching and deleting new wallets automatically now, so hopefully he won't get his hands on any more.

Compromised addresses:

Just received this email also...


Code:
Hi there, we'd like to invite you to be a beta tester of our awesome new Bitcoin Mining Accelerator program called "Coin Miner".


We have been keeping it under wraps developing it for the past few months and are ready to get people to test it out.
Basically how it works is that it automatically safely software overclocks your GPU to a stable level for optimum mining performance.
This way you don't have to fiddle with BIOS overclocks, MSI Afterburner or any other overclocking software - this does it automatically on the fly.


We are currently achieving around a 23% increase in Mhash/s mining speed. Some users have seen even higher gains.


The program is in Beta right now so we are offering it for free to anyone that wants to try it out.
If you are interested, check out our site: http://www.Bitcoin-Mining-Accelerator.com

If you quit mining because of the recent difficulty increase, or have never tried it at all, it would make us feel all warm and fuzzy if you helped us
test Coin Miner. With its auto-overclock feature - it can help you sqeeze more processing power to make mining worthwhile again.

Good luck with your Bitcoin ventures :)
- The Coin Miner Team
