Bitcoin miningkrebs on security
Your are destroying the life of people for publicity. Blaming developers for creating a technology, which hackers or web developers use without consent of their users. This is just disgusting. This is doxxing at its finest, threatening people on the internet to get your information and peacing it loosely together. Most of your article is very questionable beacause it depends on statements made my Murat, which you contacted on Twitter. You just threatened him afterwards and included his information anyways.
My favorite part is the membership in the foot fetish site. This is really adding a lot of value to this investigation. A nice side effect is that it could damage the reputation of the person as well e.
Obviously the main butthurt customers of Coinhive here are year-old boys. Everything worth mentioning is public on the german wikipedia coinhive article since Nov. Sucks he got bullied out of his own forum. Using permission-based mining as a micropayment system might be a workable business model.
I might use such a system for an ad-free website provided the mining process was transparent and under my control. Is there any formal contact information of the authors of coinhive? How usable is it in its current state? Thanks for bringing this to my attention. Today the owner and administrator of pr0gramm. He also confirmed that Coinhave was started and developed by him cha0s.
It sounds for me that it is an confirmation First of all he presented you there quite negatively and triggered a small indirect rush on your person. The users started to report you on various platforms.
There are now at least posts on the imageboard where you are insulted, which Gamb likes to be patient because the pictures are not deleted.
But Gamb has no problem with that, he triggered it. Various plans are being made to silence you, ddos and other ways are being considered. After Gamb noticed what he triggered today, he wrote to the users to stop insulting you etc. Personally, I want to thank you for your work. I was also very interested in who is behind coinhive.
The original use on pr0gramm was done only on a specific pr0miner link, meaning that the users who clicked that link knew this code was running.
However, it never was the intent of any pr0gramm or Coinhive people that the code is used for criminal purposes. German law allows such mining operations only with permission of the user or owner of the computer the user might not legally be able to permit it, such as when he works in a company and the company computers would be used, so the user of the computer might face repercussions for allowing it to be used to mine cryptocurrency — but this is not of relevance to the topic at hand.
The thing is, Coinhive blew up beyond what was intended, it was abused by criminals, but it is not criminal in itself. That, at least, is my honest impression as an user of the pr0gramm. I believe that, if a violation of laws occured, it should be settled by the use of the legal system, not by use of criminal activity which indeed would remind of gang violence at this point. I have seen you were once victim of SWATting, and I can understand your fears, but I also believe that the pr0gramm staff has reason to fear terroristic attacks by left-extremists.
So I want you to understand their situation also. This, of course, does not excuse the behavior of anyone who calls for violence and should not be misinterpreted as such.
If you are going to lie at least try to make it believable. Statistics for Europe and N. America show that the far-right commits many magnitudes more attacks that your boogeyman.
Keep up the great work, I learned a lot from this one. Neither raising cpu temp or load nor increased power consumption. What is illegal about Coinhive? It might be worth noting that Mr. Fuerstberger also probably maintains connections to Hells Angels. Facebook profile picture was made by a member. Lots of Russian government trolling goings on here. We can see the future. Russian ogliarchs and government etc, like the little child crying wolf. As my comment from a moment ago seems to be awaiting moderation, please just delete it and this one as well.
I have long been interested in crypto currency and everything connected with it. I have almost all my savings in Bitcoin. I have a lot of interest in the encrypted currency and everything related to it. I really enjoyed reading.
Looks like pr0gramm has tightened its forum even more after this article. Also, the reason why Coinhive became so popular is because The Pirate Bay used it and TPB only got to know about it from a post by pr0gramm on Hackernews: Eroxell Limited, and Dustweb Inc.
I cannot see a record for Eroxell in Nevada nor in any other country. Even the domain eroxell. Follow me on Twitter. Join me on Facebook. Krebs on Security In-depth security news and investigation.
Matthias Moench in March 27, at March 27, at 6: March 27, at 3: Just received this email from a former pr0gramm fan: Hi, I just read your newest article about coinhive and pr0gramm. Just look through the posts tagged with your name: March 28, at 2: April 3, at 9: March 27, at 1: March 27, at 5: March 29, at 6: March 29, at March 27, at 2: March 27, at 7: March 27, at 8: March 27, at 4: What we have here is a ruthless wanna be journalist seeking for fame.
Because services like Virustotal share information about new malware samples with all participating antivirus vendors, scanning the installer will make it more likely that antivirus products on host PCs will flag the program as malicious. Rather, the administrator urged users who want to check the files for antivirus detection to use a criminal friendly service like scan4u[dot]net or chk4me[dot]com, which likewise scan submitted files with dozens of different antivirus tools but block those tools from reporting home about new and unidentified malware variants.
This Google-translated version of the site shows the builder for the installer. I gained access to an affiliate account and was able to grab a copy of the mining program. I promptly submitted the file to Virustotal and found it was flagged as a trojan horse program by at least two antivirus products.
This analysis at automated malware scanning site malwr. It also indicates that the program beacons out to pastebin. Also, the administrator demands that new users demonstrate the ability to garner hundreds to thousands of installs per day. This is a rather high install rate, and it appears many if not all affiliates are installing the mining program by bundling it with other executable programs distributed by so-called pay-per-install PPI programs.
Follow me on Twitter. More details on this vulnerability are available at this SecurityFocus writeup. ASUS reportedl y released firmware updates last week to address these bugs. Alternatively, consider dumping the stock router firmware in favor of something more flexible, less buggy amd most likely more secure see this section at the end of this post for more details. Outfitting a home or office with home automation tools that let you control and remotely monitor electronics can quickly turn into a fun and addictive if expensive hobby.
But things get somewhat more interesting when the whole setup is completely exposed to anyone on the Internet. According to research released today, multiple vulnerabilities in these WeMo Home Automation tools give malicious hackers the ability to remotely control the devices over the Internet, perform malicious firmware updates, and access an internal home network. An increasing number of malware samples in the wild are using host systems to secretly mine bitcoins.
Bitcoin is a decentralized, virtual currency, and bitcoins are created by large numbers of CPU-intensive cryptographic calculations.
In addition to archiving transactions, each new ledger update creates some newly minted bitcoins. Earlier this week, I learned of a Russian-language affiliate program called FeodalCash which pays its members to distribute a bitcoin mining bot that forces host PCs to process bitcoin transactions hat tip to security researcher Xylitol.
