Mining in a botnet?
« on: April 01, 2013, 04:35:31 PM »
Suppose you have access of around a thousand computers. CPU mining will be extremely ideal but I am new to this.
When I start the miner on my computer: minerd --url http://de1.suprnova.cc:8336/ --userpass user.1:pwd
It works and I am getting 2 KH/s on my computer. My question is would multiple computers be able to connect to my worker and all do this?

Yes you can use same for all but usually its not recommended. Please dont use botnets its just harming + LTC as miner source codes get blacklisted by av-comppanys when they detect them and thats another brick for us others who respect privacy and not use criminal ways.

I am curious as to how it harms LTC? Is the intention not to mine and generate more coins? I am coding this myself as a feature for my botnet so I am not worried about it being detected by antiviruses, that is the great benefit to coding your own software.

It will harm the community if the public finds out about a botnet. If this botnet is then used for litecoin/bitcoin or whatever, it will be blamed on that community to support such behaviour and thereby harm the reputition of the system. People are easily influenced by bad news, even if those are wrong.

If you had a bunch of tips going to one account it would be a bit fishy. It would probobly screw up the way people look at all cryptocurrencies

I guess the better question is do the mining pools care? Does it affect them or do they get upset when individual people bring large hash rates? And if so wouldn't all I have to do is find a mining pool that supports botnets? From my understanding Litecoin isn't controlled by a government or any private group.

Just make your own mining pool :D

No I dont think you will have a problem with any pools at all.
higher hashrate better LTC security  ;D
