I have managed to get my hands on iMine botnet thingy and all it does is connects to a specified pool.
Of course I will not be using it as a botnet as advertised.
Are you able to determine who's code it is based on? Ufasoft, cgminer, etc? Can you tell what language it is written in?

Difficulty seems to be on a steady rise, is "it" back ?

That was my first thought when I saw diff jumping back to 1623000 Cry

Damn, it is looking like 1 720 000  now Angry

What happens when all legit miners are out of the game and only botnets are mining Huh

Then botnets won't be sending spam anymore, because they make more money mining Huh

I would take that trade.  Sadly I think they will just do both.

Are you able to determine who's code it is based on? Ufasoft, cgminer, etc? Can you tell what language it is written in?

I can't comment on iMine, but I can tell you that so far every known botnet that has tried mining on BTC Guild has been Ufasoft.  Sometimes they'll mask the UserAgent though.

This is why I stopped supporting cpu mining on cgminer above all other reasons.

From what I can notice, it seems the hashrate is increasing alot every single day over the last 9days.

The mystery miner is having a ball, relaying all their blocks via known pools I guess.

I see no reason to assume the mystery miner is back in business. Hashrate has been creeping up steadily for months, will only a small dip around bip16:

Looks like a trend continuing.

This next difficulty is on route to total sadness.

Its only going to get worse IMHO, as all those FPGA are being switched on, and unlike GPUs, almost no one will switch them off again.

if you feel bitcoins will be successful , then yes, it will only get worse long term (ed: as in mining, then selling immediately).   i could have bought microsoft shares in 1986, after all

as for FPGA,  this is something only someone doing this as a hobby would buy, since there is no profit in these at the moment.   they won't be a serious factor for a while

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).

Could you explain your reasoning behind this statement? I ask as I'm moving to having about 50% of my mediocre hashing power come from FPGAs and in my calculations it makes perfect sense. For reference, power is $0.11/kwh where I live and there is no need for air conditioning due to cold ambients year round.

Current FPGA are high up front cost and no resale. Either you are doing it for long term and will perhaps break even in a year or two, or you were an early adopter and have a scrooge mcduck pile of coins to cash in to "waste" on them.

The real GPU killer will be when someone gets either super cheap FPGA or an ASIC developed.

So basically if you are in bitcoin for a quick buck then FPGAs, in your mind, make no sense. I agree there, you can't just peddle FPGA miners on eBay. But damn do those $500/month powerbills get scary real fast with GPUs  Grin

It would appear to be coded in vb6 and uses Ufasoft.

Visual Basic... Not exactly the programming language of choice I would have expected from a hacker.

Maybe he's back, but with a different ip-adress: 85.17.27.234.

Look at blockchain:
http://blockchain.info/pools
http://blockchain.info/blocks/85.17.27.234

14 blocks in 24h (like BTC-Guild). This is around 1.5 TH/s.

Reverse lookup for that ip places it in the leaseweb datacenter. If anyone has solid proof its a botnet, email it to abuse@leaseweb.com.

I only checked a few of those, but they all seem deepbit blocks:

Honestly we need strongly signed blocks.  It can be optional but I imagine most pools would sign their blocks.  Major farms (GBLSE) would sign blocks to prove their contract's hashing power.  I think a majority of p2pool miners and even some solo miners would strongly sign their blocks. 

While not everyone would sign blocks it would eliminate the false positives and reduce the amount of unknown to the truly unknown.

Strongly signed blocks can be the precursor for more complex pool based services (like 0-confirm surety contracts).

What is the benefit of signed blocks? So we can see who mined it?

Yes. Right now, anyone can put almost anything in the blockchain to "prove" who made a block, but that doesn't stop anyone from putting someone else's info in to masquerade as them. There isn't usually any incentive to do that though, except in the case of something such as a botnet.
