My proxy is still connected and all my miners are still getting shares. But then again I haven't been disconnected in at least four days.

I'm getting 415ms ping to the stratum URL from the UK... I was thinking about switching to antpool since I'm wondering where the 40Ph/s have gone from GHash, etc, but after reading a few posts, I think I might stick to p2pool.

Until they manage to get these DDoS issue's under control that's probably not such a bad idea.

Dear Bitmain Customer,

This morning we received a concerning email from a group of hackers threatening Bitmain and our services with a DDoS attack and demanding a ransom payment to prevent the attack. Bitmain is committed to providing the best service possible to our users, and will not invite future attacks of this sort by giving in to the demands of hackers.

The hackers have demonstrated that they do possess the capability to execute a DDoS and that this is not an entirely empty threat, although we do not know the full extent of their capabilities. During the next few days, Bitmaintech.com, AntPool, AntPool.com, and&nbs p;Hashnest.com may experience intermittent outages. Our team is working hard to ensure that the effects of any possible attack will be as minimal as possible.

For those customers mining on AntPool, please make sure that you have configured your backup pools properly in the event that you are unable to access AntPool.

For HashNest users, mining payouts will continue as usual and there is no need to worry about lost revenue.

For sales, if you are unable to access our main website, you may contact us directly at info@bitmaintech.com.

Thank you for bearing with us during this time.

All the best,

Bitmain
Hey now, everyone needs to slow down a bit.  BM has stated that this DDOS attack may bring them up and down for a few days, which is exactly what's happening.  Make sure you've got a secondary or tertiary backup pool and don't sweat it.

Still sending them my junk-mines (couple usb sticks, a butterfly 30 and gpu) so pool is alive (20hrs active mining)  but the webserver is still under attack so no clue if it's accounting for the work or not. Keeping my good miner on my other pool until I can get an update and see stats.


I know it's not their fault and applaud their decision not to pay the ransom so will be back full-speed with them when its resolved. I see they stepped up the ddos protection level today, and in time the putzes will move on if they aren't getting paid.

Its called a ransom malware virus the FBI Originally wrote it to so called "White-collar crime!" it encrypts your hard drive and all your files then you can not access them without undoing the encryption. The only way to do that I to get the key used to encrypt it which is stored on the FBI Server. Even If you remove the ransom ware virus your files or whole hard drive is encrypted and cant be undone only restore from a backup which it can store itself on there to and also encrypt it.

Now hackers use the same thing to scam money but they always ask for bitcoin because its not traceable at least that's what they think!


Just Google "Ransom ware virus" you will see a lot of info on it. It goes back in years!

And now there at it again with smarter methods that do the same thing!

Yikes.

Yes, such a ransom-ware attack certainly exists; however, that is not what is being utilized here.  In this case, a user, or group of users, are flooding Bitmain's servers with traffic, effectively blocking out everyone else.  That's the denial of service.  The distributed part means it's coming from a whole host of IP addresses, making stopping it very difficult.  Believe me, if it were just one guy on one machine, Bitmain or their upstream ISP could simply block traffic from that one address and the problem would be solved.  These attacks typically come from many machines that the hacker controls, usually by means of a hidden trojan that the machine's owner is likely unaware is even on the box.

And no, the original ransom-ware attacks were most certainly not perpetrated by the FBI against white collar criminals.  Geez, take off the tinfoil hat and spend a little time in the sun Smiley.

Jonny's Pool - Mine with us and help us grow!  Support a pool that supports Bitcoin, not a hardware manufacturer's pockets!  No SPV cheats.  No empty blocks.

Different virus, unrelated to ddos.

Edit: and re: the above post. Of course they can filter it out. That's why you pay for ddos protection .........

Seems to be reliable again or me.  I did not see my miners going over to failover pools in past 24 hours.

Also nice to see it going back in percentage of blocks found in past 24 hours.  Now the pool is above F2P.

I remember reading about hardware malware that the CIA pulled off, even if you wiped your disk it was hard coded onto the disk itself.
