Eligius has been spitting out a lot more 1 transaction blocks than the "mystery miner" lately.   I noticed they have some astounding luck ratio for the last 36 hrs or so, too..

sadly, i've moved off from eclipsemc for the time being,  such luck curves  lie on the far edge of  'reasonable' probability

Feeble try to overturn BIP 16? Wink

I kid, I kid.

sadly, i've moved off from eclipsemc for the time being,  such luck curves  lie on the far edge of  'reasonable' probability

So you think a 339 GH/s pool has found 22 blocks so far today, most of them being 1 transaction blocks? And the Eligius blocks that have transactions look like normal Eligius payouts while the Eligius blocks with 1 transaction go to one address.

Or do you think that maybe there is a problem with the reporting of the blocks?

I vote for option two. Especially considering this post: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=70581.msg812711#msg812711

shrug?

does it matter?

i will say that i was mining on there when at least one block was solved, and i received a payment for it

maybe it wasnt one of the 1 blocks

Dacentec, best deals for US dedicated servers. They regularly restock $20-$25 Opterons with 8-16GB RAM & 2x1-2TB HDD's (ofc, usually lots of other good stuff to choose from).  I did a Serverbear benchmark of one of my $20/mo Opteron (June last year), it's here.  Have had about a half dozen different servers with Dacentec, & none have failed to sustain at least 40MB/s (burst higher). My favorite is a 12-month rent-to-own ZT Systems 2XL5520 16GB 2x2TB SATA for $40/month (got lucky with the 'off-brand', haven't seen a RTO 2xL5520 for under $50/mo since -- at least for monthly contracts).  wholesaleinternet.com has some ancient 2-core intel CPUs @ $10/mo sometimes (I got an Intel Core 2 6300 @ 1.86GHz, with a 250GB HDD with 46000 hours on it, LOL. $20 @ Dacentec is much better, if you can grab one). joesdatacenter.com (same location as Wholesale Internet) also occasionally has specials (or if you don't want to wait, it has an AMD Opteron 170 @ $16/mo).

One botnet down, http://www.microsoft.com/Presspass/press/2012/mar12/03-25CybercrimePR.mspx?rss_fdn=Press%20Releases
Probably not the one mining bitcoins, but interesting to know it was over 13 milion infections.

Reposting from the noob forum, just in case anyone still have doubts that we are dealing with a botnet:

https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=74159.msg820648#msg820648
Since I'm new, I might as well post this here until I can join the main thread   

https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=67634.540

There's a mystery miner than has something like 20% of the network, there's some suspicion that it's a new botnet that uses GPUs.

Well this fellow has been advertising exactly that:

empiremethod.com/showthread.php?tid=262
forums.digitalpoint.com/showthread.php?t=2425022
adminscode.com/wts-imine-bitcoin-botnet-miner.html

I haven't seen any mention of this in the main thread, and the posts of the botnet seller are relatively recent (middle of march), which I believe coincides roughly with the new suspected botnet (someone correct me if I'm wrong).

Some people in the thread have already reported it to virus scanning software companies, but, again, I don't think anyone has posted or notified them about this "iMiner".

I highly doubt that is related to the mystery miner farm simply looking at the installation procedure which is more than likely just some script that you must manually run on slave machine and not something that can infect a user remotely.

Well the admincode posting thread title says it is a bitcoin botnet miner. The guy has a support email address at the domain http://ixam-hosting.com/ and another Skype at "ixam4131"

If I understand this correctly, he just provides the software so you can turn your existing botnet in to a bitcoin farm. Thats probably not even illegal.

Maybe the software he is selling is infecting the purchasers computer for his own botnet....

In any case, he says "don't upload to virustotal", so someone needs to get right on that. Also, pay with paypal so that you can charge the fucker back and also get more info.

I saw a block from Donate@home (http://donateathome.org/) that was empty earlier today.  They probably aren't the 20% bandit, though.

Has anyone bought it, or even tried to contact the guy?

I might try to, but only if others aren't actively pursuing it.  I don't know enough about paypal to understand if buying this might lead to an account shutdown (even if the software was purely bought in the interest of shutting it down)...

I don't see why it matters. If you have a botnet, you can simply install a normal mining program and use a rootkit to hide it from the OS - no need for some untrusted application.

I agree with gigavps; chances are the application will just infect your computer.

Speaking of, I wrote this really cool mining program that will double your hashrate - just don't upload it to VirusTotal. Anyone interested? Wink

Just try it in a virtual machine like virtual box.
Would be nice to run wireshark and try to understand how it communicates.

I use the setting runningspeed=200% in my config file, works very good.

I was pretty sure it was hashesdouble=1, but that might require the extra warp coprocessor.

I submit hashes and also send my hashes thru the subspace communicator getting them tomorrow.  exponential expanding them every 3 days.

I'm currently working on a patch for the miner software that skips the nounces that are no share.
The patch will work for all cpu/gpu/fpga/botnet miners.
No settings or subspace things necessary that way

I'm working on a patch that solves block hashes analytically without requiring to brute-force SHA. Then, you simply set the blocktime variable to the desired value and off you go.
I'm in the testing phase right now, set it to 1 block per hour, just to make sure I won't destabilize the bitcoin enterprise, but I still need to add tx to the equation; people seem to get uncomfortable with all these zero tx blocks right now.
Well, once I fixed that I will offer the patch for just $9.95 to everybody!  

Mystery solved. Grin
