I have Downloaded this from

Binaries for Windows:
https://github.com/downloads/pooler/cpuminer/pooler-cpuminer-2.2.3-win32.zip (32-bit)

From the Original Post.

Its the minerd.exe   Microsoft essentials checks out ok
Spybot sd has flagged it twice and has deleted it  immediately so I downloaded it and
I put it though an online virus scanner....




WTF is going on here?

Someone else please verify Thanks

Can anyone put my anxiety at ease here.

I dl the new cpuminer and this is what came up after the 4th hash



I trust spybot and it never failed me to date. I know some things can be accidentally added to DB's However this has never come up with these miners.

This one is the first miner program that has done this.
check the MD5 from the github dowload and compare it with urs, if its the same then its a false positive, otherwise u maybe got a problem Wink

I really don't know how to check MD5 from github. I'm pretty sure I'm safe.

As long as you downloaded it through the link at the top of the thread, yer fine...

It has been included with malware so the botnet operator can use other people's computers to mine. That's why cgminer and minerd got tagged by the virus scanners.

It isn't a virus itself, it was just the payload, but the scanner companies don't really care about that.

They aren't as thorough as they used to be. >shrugs<

Ok I'm confused here. I am to allow someone access to my computer's hashing power?

Am I missing something here? is this how this pool works? *scratching head

no you do miss understand him. Botnet Operators are deploying this binary among their victims/zombies to mine BTC for them, therefore the companys to flag it as "virus".

Yes, you're missing something...

All the program is, is the mining program... there is nothing virus-like about it.

You install it, and point it at your own daemon, or at the pool you're using, to do your mining with.

What the malware peddlers were doing, was using their trojans, to install that program on other people's computers, with their own credentials, in effect, stealing other people's electricity to mine for themselves using the victim's computers.

The mining programs themselves, are not malware. You are not allowing access to your computer through them.

The malware peddlers, were using their own malware, to install the miner programs on other people's computers, turning their computers into miners without their permission. That's all.

The alerts are just false positives by lazy people at the scanner companies who can't be bothered to honestly investigate the miner program. They just find the trojan programs, and flag everything they find inside as a virus, even if it isn't. This isn't anything new, I've had other programs I use end up as collateral damage like that too.

As long as you download your copy of the miner directly from the official source, you're fine.

What I was confused about was how accepted this practice was on this forum. I thought something like this would be frowned down upon or at-least warning others not suspecting this welcomed or praised.

But hey no problem as newbies we pickup quickly and learn the rules.

We're just giving you the facts without (much) judgement.

With tech projects like these, particularly revolving around crypto, you have to expect a mix of white-/grey-/black-hat programmers.

Value-judgements you can make for yourself, don't need us to do that for ya.

Ok yes I understand that. However I downloaded that from the first post located here in this thread. Is that acceptable by everyone here?

FINALLY!!! Jesus this 4 hour thing is ridiculous...

Anyway... Heres my thread: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=121631.msg1310767#msg1310767 (I was un-whitelisted..)

To quote:"I joined a pool and mined one proof of work (I think) but then it shows this in the syslog "Long-polling activated for http://ltc.kattare.com:9332/LP""

Any ideas? Smiley

Right it seems to be working... Though I have 2 concerns.
1. I'm mining incredibly slow (6.5kh/s) but like I only got 0.05 litecoin after like 10h of mining.
2. It keeps showing up with "LONGPOLL detected new block".. It would go through allot of these before I get a "accepted: 1/1 (100.00%), 6.82 khash/s (yay!!!)" message. Is this normal? Surely it's inefficient?

More efficient than not notifying you of a new block, and the new work to go along with it, so you don't waste cycles working on now-invalid work...

and yes, very normal...

But surely that means I was doing wasted calculations? Can't we start more 'fresh' blocks so it's less like for pool members to calculate on the same blocks - and hence we have a 'collision'?

You are starting more fresh blocks... that's why the fresh longpoll messages to start new, fresh work...

Every block has to build on top of the previous one, so when a block is found elsewhere on the network, and is distributed to the network, everyone mining starts new work for a new block to place on top of it... and when yours gets sent that new block, then your miner is told of the new block's existence, and then your miner discards the rest of the work it was trying to solve the block that was just found, and begins work on the new yet-to-be-found block. This is what the longpoll message is telling you.

Fresh block, fresh work...
