Run Chris Howie's bitcoin mining proxy on your rig. It provides multi level instant failover to other pools in case your favorite pool has any kind of problems. Your miners will just keep mining and never even know there was a problem. I love this program.

The newest poclbm makes this unnecessary - the software supports multiple servers with failover. Of course if you're running another miner...

The account balance of the botnet has been donated to Bitcoin Faucet.

While I enjoy the "revenge" and "justice" of denying them their money, I think that legally, it was not the proper thing to do. Courts decide how to award damages, not site owners.

That's right. I hope the botnet owners come to the place where eleuthria lives to sue him because they want their 6BTC back.

Of course, eleuthria might sue them as well, and all the guys with infected computers, so I predict there will be no court involved. Donating the coins was probably the right thing to do.

Botnet activities are illegal and cost a lot of money (not only the site owners). So I think that was the right decision!

Not in this wild west reenactment.

What do you suppose a court would rule anyways? That all the BTC generated should go to the botnetted computers? How? Whats your solution? IMO only one option was available and that was exercised by BTC Guilds site owner.

The (Not so) "Wild" West was actually a very pacific time. Movies needed action and shots, but its not how reality was.

Maybe not (I'm no historian) but the analogy from the movies stands.

So is it me or is the A record for btcguild.com set to 127.0.0.1?

nslookup:

Non-authoritative answer:
Name:    btcguild.com
Address:  127.0.0.1

Yup.  I presume he set the A record to loopback because of the huge incoming DDOS.

No, the Mining Pool owners decide how to award coins.  If you don't like it, mine with another Pool, this is not a legal arrangement.

I for one agree that BotNets mining against pools are illegitimate users and anything can be done to their proceeds.
However, I would have donated them to the pool operators, since they're expending costs just to fix what the botnet is NOW doing to them.
I have to agree with you Rob, it's unfortunate that BTC Guild has to pay for the bandwidth consumed by the zombies. I would create a form letter notifying the individual ISP's that are providing bandwidth to the zombies, and blast it out to the relevant ISP's abuse address, with timestamps and affected IP's. That way, maybe something could be done to help disinfect the horde.

Time for website functionality restoration pushed back about 1 hour.  Pages should now be properly redirecting everybody to the ddos explanation page.

Before bringing the "My Account" page back online, I'm adding some extra security checks to the payout code to make sure a payout doesn't get recorded to the database without its matching txid showing that it was successfully procssed by bitcoind.

Sorry, maybe I missed something but why NL1 and NL2 servers has dissapeared from BTCGuild website before it goes offline?
Does that mean thease servers will be swithched off forever?  I have most short ping to NL1...
Now both of my miners switched to deepbit authomatically, but I like BTCGuild and wait forward with hope.

Website has been restored.  My Account is in a temporary state since it can't poll the other servers reliably.  The Request Payout has been added to the temporary page, and it will give you a payout in FULL PRECISION (all 8 decimals).

In the end, all this DDoS "cost" users is:
  A) Idle mining time if no failover was setp
  B) One round of shares (Block 1464).


At this time I am unable to access DE2 and US Central due to ISPs nulling the IP addresses from the attacks flooding their servers.  DE1 and US East did not find Block 1464 yet, so technically no actual rewards have been lost, only the shares submitted in the current round (which has not yet completed unless DE1/East found a block during the first few moments of the DDoS before they went offline completely).

I get a failed to connect message for btcguild.com, and my miners don't seem to be able to connect to any of the servers either.

Manually setting the blocks as 120 confirms, even though a few of them aren't yet.  They're secure enough to allow people to get off the pool with 100% of their rewards if this DDoS has completely scared them away.

Thanks eleuthria for all your trouble with this. One question, not for now but for the future, could you use some other invalid adress than 127.0.0.1 when you deactivate a server? My local mining proxy (cdhowie) started requesting work from itself and crashed, at least I think that was the reason. Thanks for your consideration!

A more general solution to this pretty funny (IMHO) problem is to set your local mining proxy to a non-standard port.
