Hot! Fortnite Gamers Targeted by Malware That Steals BTC Addresses
I was shocked when I read this today. Fortnite - one of the most popular games in the world now - gamers got scammed. Scammers using malware that targets the Bitcoin (BTC) wallet addresses, as Cybersecurity firm Malwarebytes said. How did it happen? So, thieves are sneaking malicious data theft code into downloads that apparently promise “free” season six Fortnite Android versions, among other “bogus cheats, wallhacks and aimbots.” So-called “free V-Bucks” – an in-game currency that can be used to purchase additional gaming content – also conceal malicious packages of code. The download links were shared via scammers youtube channels. Interesting? Next more! As investigation said, more than 1,200 downloads had already been completed. A file named “Trojan.Malpack,” was a data stealer targeting Bitcoin wallets. The file in question reportedly attempted to redirect the siphoned information “via a POST command to an /index.php file in the Russian Federation, courtesy of the IP address The crypt mining malware (cryptojacking – among hackers) is continuously rising. source: cointelegraph
[SERIOUS]Need help! ~>10BTC stolen, have lots of info, filed IC3 complaint, now waiting...HELP!?!
I'll try to be as brief, but vague (for obvious reasons) so here goes. I was hacked sometime ago and a fair share of BTC (to me at least, about 10 to 15) were stolen from my PC which had a virus downloaded off usenet by me (yes I know, I'm an idiot...but still a victim). A Wallet Stealer was used to steal my BTC and transfer to another BTC address. This BTC address has a ton of history and good information left behind in traces on the web. So I was able to nail down a name, a bunch of pseudonyms, email addresses, physical addresses, IP addresses, forum posts, etc etc etc ...to a fair degree of certainty to identify someone. This guy has HACKER written all over him. So I know who my attackethief is, but I'm not in a position to do anything about it. I have compiled all my research and submitted a IC3 complaint (I didn't go to the local police, they would laugh at me haha). I've also been in contact with exchanges this attacker has sent/received from (thanks to some ninja investigative skills), and they have actually been pretty reactive and helpful (even spoke to a COO). Now they just said to wait to hear back from the authorities...which I hope leads them to my IC3 complaint, or the other way around. Anyone have any contacts in the FBI/IC3 or some other cyber crime affiliated organizations (both US and international)? Maybe they can escalate my IC3 complaint or hear my story. I've reached out to the attacker asking him politely to return my BTC; no response. reddit, even if you can't help me, then maybe some publicity will lead to something. We can't let these types of guys get away...not only is he a shit-bag of an individual, but it's also bad for bitcoin in general...they devalue our currency. They'll go to BTC-E to sell em or buy gift card with the bitcoin, purchase goods and then re-sell for USD/fiat. It's a black market activity at that point. This guy is a criminal and this isn't his first offense. TLDR: was hacked, lost a bunch of BTC, have lots of info and I am waiting hopelessly to hear back from someone who can help. PS. I live in the US in case that wasn't clear by the IC3/FBI comments. PS#2. I know the story is vague...adding any more details to this post could jeopardize the investigation or tip off the thief. edit: sorry for extra ~ in title. edit2: reworded asking for upvotes, thanks nter.
I will be at the Miami conference, and I will consider investing if my questions have reasonable answers. Illegal contracts are particularly concerning to me. NECESSITY OF A NEW BLOCKCHAIN The whitepaper states that colored coins inherit the same limitations as the bitcoin protocol. Metacoins do not, but they cannot be truly secure without having a copy of the blockchain. How big of a problem is this? Hasn't the Electrum model worked for Bitcoin? Is there a big issue with just querying a bunch of supernodes to see if they all give the same result? Is it necessary to have absolute security with every contract, or only very high value transactions? Is it correct that metacoin clients won't need the first 14gb of the blockchain? BITCOIN BLOCKCHAIN SIZE Bitcoin Magazine's analysis showed that since storage capacity and internet bandwidth follow Moore's law, the blockchain size will not be a problem to store on phones. How many years from now should we predict that the blockchain size will become irrelevant? If the blockchain size were irrelevant, would that remove the need for ethereum? How much demand is there for blockchain contracts at this time, and how fast should we expect demand to accelerate? ETHEREUM BLOCKCHAIN How fast should we estimate the ethereum blockchain size will grow? What will be the effects of ethereum blockchain size growth several orders of magnitude greater than Bitcoin? Will this lead to more mining centralisation? TURING COMPLETENESS Is it reasonable to think the client can be sandboxed? What will be the effects of these, since the protocol is Turing complete: viruses, malware, adware, keyloggers, scam contracts, wallet stealers ILLEGAL CONTRACTS What will be the effects of illegal contracts? An assassination market, for example? Will the Silk Road be able to run on ethereum? Will a database of child porn be able to be stored? If there is child porn stored on the blockchain that is easily accessible, will it be legal to store the blockchain in any country? What will be the effects of running all the clients over Tor by default? Can a 60s block time with huge blocks work over Tor? SATOSHI'S ARGUMENTS In 2010, satoshi succesfully argued against including Namecoin into bitcoin, suggesting merge-mining instead.
"Piling every proof-of-work quorum system in the world into one dataset doesn't scale. Bitcoin and BitDNS can be used separately. Users shouldn't have to download all of both to use one or the other. BitDNS users may not want to download everything the next several unrelated networks decide to pile in either. The networks need to have separate fates. BitDNS users might be completely liberal about adding any large data features since relatively few domain registrars are needed, while Bitcoin users might get increasingly tyrannical about limiting the size of the chain so it's easy for lots of users and small devices." -- Satoshi
You can view the rest of his arguments in the thread here: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=1790.0;all DEVELOPER COMMENTS I have not seen any core bitcoin developers comment on ethereum. Is there somewhere besides the reddit and the thread on bitcointalk about it? I am not very technical, so sorry if some of my questions are invalid or stated incorrectly.
