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

Thank you. Maybe we can join forces and combine our hashrate patches for future releases and rule the bitcoin network (also, I don't include the fpga option yet, dang!).  Embarrassed

Thanks! How often did I look for that button on this board but couldn't find it?
Now it's there (SMF ver. 1.1.16-s), just before my eyes, a dream come true!
SMF is becoming a social network platform after all!  Smiley

I think it's interesting info.

does this graph only represent to the 26th? Wasn't totally clear how long they've been pulling the bots into their sinkhole, may have only really happened in the last 24h?

the last valid datapoint is march 28th. after that the chart very unelegantly shows "0", which is not a real datapoint (no data for march 29th yet, too lazy to adjust the data ranges, sorry 'bout that)

But, very nice graph.
I would like to see it again in a few days to see if the 1tx blocks decrease with the takedown of that botnet.

I took the period from march 7th to now and broke things up by hour of day (GMT, I guess), hoping to see a pattern.



I don't think this tells us much, though, too noisy.

I should probably include min, max and std deviation to see wether this pattern tends to occur each day or is just general noise.

It's probably expected for a botnet of this size to be rather "global".

How long does it take for a block to be spendable?
Maybe you can filter out blocks that are already spent.
Pools must use it to pay out customers, the botnet might be just collecting atm.

Most of the 1 transaction blocks are from   ....  Eligius    

If the miner in question is not feeding them thru Eligius somehow, then he has been gone all day!

Those blocks "from" Eligius are not Eligius blocks.  Eligius like p2pool has a direct payment in the coinbase very easy to spot.

Some time ago "mystery" started relaying found blocks only to major pools to hide the origin.  Blockchain.info only knows who first relayed a block not who mined it.

"116,000-bot-strong operation devoted to Bitcoin hacking and other crimes"

this was not the first botnet discovered using this Kelihos software. sounds like there are multiple operators using it.

This, plus the possible "iMine" software make me think that there is a botnet mining pool operator somewhere, allowing botnet operators to connect. If, indeed, there are more than a few botnets using such a pool, it might be hard to notice if just one botnet went down.

Reason to possibly be afraid of the 1 tx miner:

Tonight we just had a pair of blocks orphaned on the chain, by the 1 tx miner.  173692 and 173693 were both part of the chain, after nearly an hour without a block on the network.  About 15 minutes later, those transactions reset to 0 confirmations as a 1tx miner published 3 blocks in a row.  At the same time, the 1 tx miner's blocks used timestamps from the past to make their blocks appear older than the active chain.

Now, the 1tx miner didn't execute a double spend this time [my understanding is they would have had to create a new spend to replace their old one to complete a true doublespend, otherwise their previous transaction would still be floating around the network and eventually get confirmed].  However, they just sent the network back in time nearly 2 hours until real miners create blocks that move transactions along.
