I got this offer today in email.  It's a program that mines for bitcoins and steals your bitcoins.  They probably got my email address from the MtGox breach.

I've gotten a few of these emails. All from this coin miner site. Luckily Google flags them as spam Cheesy I'd assume any email randomly coming from someone about bitcoin is a scam.

I did not get it, but I haven't checked my junk folder in at least a week, so it might be in there.

Wasn't this site/software exposed already? Or are they coming so fast and furious now that I am getting them confused?

I got that same spam.

I sent an e-mail to the spammer recommending he open source it, and get rid of the sammy box logo.
otherwise I wouldn't touch it with a 10' cat5e (pole)

They are probably setting up new sites all the time Sad
