Cheesy /me *giggles*

wow - such a nifty trick to delete all his posts....

Daniel, Daniel, Daniel .... on the internetz, you cannot un-ring a bell:

THAT is a screenshot of your complete PRE-deleted thread - and i am sure webarchive.org and wayback machines of all kinds will regurgitate this thread happily unredacted... not to mention the sheer fact that this thread will now appear in the Google searches of all your future employers (yes, during recruitment - companies use Google!)

Chalk it up as a black mark on your permanent internet record, bro - "this is one doodle that cant be un-did; home-skillet!"

Bahaha fantastic.
Can't understand why someone would CPU mine with their employer's hardware.
The payoff is miniscule, it's totally illegal and there's a real and significant chance of getting caught, fired and charged (in this case presumably under the computer misuse act).
Not to mention getting sued by the (former) employer.

What was the total anyway? 150 Mhash/s? He couldn't have possibly even made an entire coin in that short space of time. Lulz.

The guys asked for it. He's a thief and comes here to brag about it and asks for advice to further steal from his company. And he's stupid enough to use a username that gives away his real name. Seriously?

Holy swift justice Batman. I figured we'd never find out anything and this thread would slowly die.

I remember the old days when I used to run Folding @ Home on 100+ computers at work.  The goal was to seriously find a cure for cancer.  There was no financial gain back then.  Boss found out after a while that every computer had 100% CPU usage, but no process listed, lol.  I explained to him the project, how I did it all automatically with scripts, etc.  I had to take down the cluster, but my boss was seriously impressed with my skills on how to handle a big cluster of folding machines.  He later used my scripts that I developed to push out certain new software.  It was such a win situation!  I feel bad for these IT guys who get busted for bitcoin mining and the bosses don't recognize they actually have skills that can be guided towards being more productive.  What ever happened to hackers that got hired by the company they hacked into because they proved their skills!?!?

This is quite different as he's doing this for personal gain.

Well, skills are great things to have, but most companies are far more interested in an employee's values and morals.  Skills can be taught and molded, morals are pretty much set in stone by the time one reaches career age.

Even in your case - while I don't ever agree with using someone's resources without their knowledge - you did it with good intentions.  Curing cancer is a long way from making a buck with bitcoin and selling your employer's hardware on ebay.  This guy wasn't a hacker (for good or bad), and his morals were obviously fuxed up.

Ok so I shouldn't tell you how I brought my personal video card to work and used it to mine bitcoins while my new video cards mined at home.  Got it!  Got busted for that one too, this time I did not try to hide anything more for the IT boss/director  Tongue

This is the most bad point about this situation. If he only mined coins on the system this wouldn't be that bad at all.

It's still stealing company resources.

He might get off with a reprimand if it's only bitcoin mining. Stealing escalates this whole matter.
