The third audit (by X41) of RandomX has successfully been completed!

https://www.reddit.com/r/Monero/comments/ca71ok/randomx_audit_statuas/


Can one still use this algo to install malware to run on a website so that website visitors mine XMR with the users CPU?
Wasn't there any consideration to the algorithm that would negate this specific security issue with XMR and why is this not mentioned in the audit?

thanks.

LOL, there is NO algo that cannot be mined through javascipt making one is impossible. if you are questioning whether the old cryptonote that was being mined on some websites are still viable then the answer is NO. Sounds to me like your just trying some left handed fuD though so i'll go grab me a few m0ar and wait for the spike.

no it was a genuine question.. but feel free to see it as fud if you like.
my concern is that i had some comparative-crypto website open for a few hours yesterday on my browser and when i returned to my computer, it had almost melted the CPU. I know this type of shady deployment of malware has been inherent within the XMR community in the past so wanted to ask. I think your attitude to the question answered it specifically. thank you.

Your slander and insult to the community because you per-sieve the xmr community is responsible for one scammer that screwed you speaks volumes, welcome to ignore moron. And have some red because I'm in a good mood.

Due to the random code generation part of the proof-of-work, a web miner is significantly more difficult to create (though definitely not impossible). Additionally, the 2GB RAM requirement somewhat mitigates the malware issue.

They plan to release a desktop version in the foreseeable future.
Do you know when exactly? There is an ETA? In short in 2020 or in 2025?

They did not provide an ETA, but I am reasonably certain 2020 is way more likely than 2025 :-P
Are you sure? In crypto 2025 is more likely than 2020 generally

I deem it more likely that the desktop wallet is out in 2020 than 2025, yes.

I know, not sure whats wrong.
I think too much pain is taking a toll. Sad

I'll lose the red, but leave the post so others know what you guys mean.
Still looks like a beam fudder to me though.

Pain? Hopefully not physical pain, but I have a feeling you are talking about wallet pains after longing Monero once we hit $100 again or something like that.  (ツ)

monero is the best altcoin for what concerns the privacy and anonymity, many others have tried to imitate it but without reaching its levels, unfortunately i could not follow all the news concerning it (monero) someone can update me? the last fork? can no longer be mined with cryptonight? was born a new altcoin monero7?...

Indeed, as a matter of fact, most are only imitating but not entirely, all of which is wasted like garbage. I also don't understand why most people imitate and why not make something different. For what you ask, besides that, I also didn't follow the news so far.

The third audit (by X41) of RandomX has successfully been completed!

https://www.reddit.com/r/Monero/comments/ca71ok/randomx_audit_statuas/


Can one still use this algo to install malware to run on a website so that website visitors mine XMR with the users CPU?
Wasn't there any consideration to the algorithm that would negate this specific security issue with XMR and why is this not mentioned in the audit?

thanks.

Due to the random code generation part of the proof-of-work, a web miner is significantly more difficult to create (though definitely not impossible). Additionally, the 2GB RAM requirement somewhat mitigates the malware issue.

this is the kind of response i had hoped to read. thank you for that.
Glad that some of us are a little less easily-triggered!

peace.

Yes, this was not at all an insult to the community as a whole. I think your lucky you got a civil answer at all. But I was abrasive so that is on me for allowing you to bait me. Be assured that won't happen again.

no it was a genuine question.. but feel free to see it as fud if you like.
my concern is that i had some comparative-crypto website open for a few hours yesterday on my browser and when i returned to my computer, it had almost melted the CPU. I know this type of shady deployment of malware has been inherent within the XMR community in the past so wanted to ask. I think your attitude to the question answered it specifically. thank you.

I refrained from stating 'within the XMR ecosystem, because it is not a fault of the developers, it is indeed people mining XMR via shady malware, which is indeed 'people involved in XMR' = "xmr community members"

You got triggered and defensive on my choice of phrase, perhaps you need some time with your head in a good novel or something friend, come away from 'Interent Formus' - it's an awful anxiety-enducing state to be in.

When somebody hacked me and got 7000 xmr, Hueristic was about the only guy who took me seriously.  Most of the others piled on with predictable abuse.
Also, he's a very knowledgable guy, and I value that.
Overall, Hueristic's valuable contributions outweigh his little irritable outbursts.   As an older fellow with physical problems, I also let my annoyance get the better of me.
Hueristic, you should know we're on your side.  Next time something gets your goat, just think positive -- we're all your friends here.

Is there a way for Ledger to integrate XMR into Ledger Live without having to store the viewkeys off all their users?

Because if they store them, then US gov agencies will ask them, and those agencies will be able to map a good chunk of XMR distribution.

Behind that lies this important question: is their a way for XMR to become more user friendly without sacrifing privacy? Or will the only way to ensure privacy be forever to run a full node oneself?

In the OP it’s been said they’re moving away from this forum. Is this now only community based or is a team member still active on the thread as well? Privacy is key and Monero stands for privacy. Monero = key.
