    Over 9 million brute force hits in less than 3 days. But it's been patched up. No more attacks, no more vulnerabilities. Brute force won't work now. I guess they were really desperate to steal 5 eth.

    It's a learning experience. I'm not a cyber security expert, but I've been working with people who are and we've resolved our problems. No more hackers. That's the problem with cryptocurrency, it's too anonymous. Or so the criminals think.

    And? Needs only guess which type of password you had. 34 hits per second this is nothing for strong password.

    The brute force attacks didn't break through, but it's been fixed so they can't use a brute force attack to get into the system at all now. Should I give details about how they found the vulnerability and were able to steal the eth? Maybe some would-be hackers would like some tips on how they hacked us. Not that we can be hacked like that again, but others may be vulnerable.

    I come here to help people, answer questions, and hopefully in the process find more people to join our pool, but i'm not here to advertise server vulnerabilities.

    We really dont need this type of detail, just to know where vulnerability was: pool software, wallet that you using or eth itself? And you really think some hackers will get tips from that forum? People who need to know this, already know it, and maybe if vulnerability became public, other new pool will patch it to, not waiting to be hacked.

    Learning experience, like you said. If the pool is more secure now, then maybe some good came out of it. Please keep us updated on the attempt to recover the stolen ETH.

    I see that we found another block earlier today and that a number of payouts have been completed for it. I have not received a payout and the time stamps on the transactions indicate it has been hours since any have been sent. Will the rest be completed in the near future? I am now awaiting payouts for the last two blocks (the first being the one which was stolen).

    A lot of miners were paid in full, but not everyone. I'm still trying to fund the account myself to make up the $1000 loss and it's coming out of my pocket, so it will take a few days. If it shows a pending balance on your account, you will be paid.

    That was good luck on this last block, I hope luck stays strong.
  • danxdanx californiaMember Posts: 143 ✭✭
    The pool is in the 9GH range now, so blocks should be coming on a more regular basis. Also the issues with Nicehash have been resolved so now anyone who wants to use nicehash on our pool can without any problem.

    Pool host: noobpool.com
    Pool port: 8008
    Pool user: Your wallet address
    Pool pass: #
    Algorithm: DaggerHashimoto

    It's that simple.

    Pool was hacked for the second time. This time it took a whole 14 seconds from the time we found the block until it was stolen. I used every precaution, had help from cyber security experts, yet still can't keep it safe. So mining on a smaller pool like this has risks. Just don't hold me responsible for lost eth if you choose to mine with us and we get hacked once again. I'm doing everything I can to prevent it, but hackers are smarter than me.

    We resolved our hacking issues, we've found about 25 blocks since without any issues. Payments are going out on time and the pool is growing pretty quick. Things have never been better at noobpool.com
  • erstwealerstweal MidwestMember Posts: 121 ✭✭
    Thanks @danx, I've been getting a nice consistent payout lately.

    hey!

    I want to join your pool, but I can't seem to get my ethminer working. I'm using the latest one from. It get's pretty good hash rates without a dev fee to claymore

    @ssdaytona You are a little vague on what isn't working. Perhaps some more details? If you go to the noob miner site he gives the commands to use to actually send hash to the pool.

    I am getting this when try to setup pool on nicehash:
    Error: Received no data.
    Your pool is shown as incompatible therefore we encourage you to contact pool operator to make sure that the pool is using minimal/starting pool share difficulty which is compatible with our service (and thus compatible with today's miners), please send them link to our FAQ on this topic: Thank you!

    Hi, I have been mining in the pool for over a week now, the first payment came through with out issue, but since then the balances on the web site have been sat at 0.0000000 i have 3 machines on the go with a small 70mh total, but i would have thought the balances should have somethign in by now... any ideas pleease?
  • danxdanx californiaMember Posts: 143 ✭✭
    With the new difficulty, it takes longer to find blocks. Your balance updates when we find a block. And just so happens we are stuck on a stubborn block as well. As soon as we solve the block you'll get your pending balance and payout within a few minutes.

    The pool is still going strong. We've added an etc node and are working on adding nodes in Asia and EU for better ping times for miners in those areas.

    Hi, just a quick one now you have updated you site how do i access my stats? when i try and type in my details in the your stats box it comes back with no details.
  • WeiWei Member Posts: 2
    Something isn't right. I pointed 1 test GPU to the site to try it out. A few things I'm observing:
    1. Payout at 0.05 - great!
    2. Hashrate reporting fluctuates throughout the day. I understand you need to look at the average. But that too is dropping to half of what is reported by my miner. I've tested with both, etherminer and claymore.
    3. Pending balance has been stuck at 0 for the last couple of days after the 1st payout. Is something not working with the stats?
  • BigMikeJBigMikeJ Member Posts: 1
    I too have been testing noobpool. 16 days, first 1 gpu now 4, hope to go further but will have to test further. i like the 0 fee and hope noob will reward those that stay, especially THOSE THAT HASH THE SLOW CRAP BLOCKS, HINT HINT.
    1 .05 is lower than most but it has to be. it's a new pool and he needs to get the hash rate up to have faster find times, the lower payout rate helps keep minors happy about the slower find rate.
    2. i too have seen the hash rate change. it even reports me faster on the 3hr(really 24 hr) rate. I will let noob address this as its his server. i do know that minor rate is faster than server sees as there is job download and share upload times i believe calculated in. But how it can be faster something is imiss. hopefully noob can enlighten us on that topic. i feel it going to be something i am not aware of yet. But learning is part of this process.
    3. no block find for over 3 days, a very long one so no payout pending change yet.
    happy mining

    Hi, i would like to start mining in your pool, but i know nothing about minig. What software to use, what is the way to start minig? Any basic guide to start minig? I do not have a wallet... Where to start?
  • erstwealerstweal MidwestMember Posts: 121 ✭✭
    @darodi He gives all of the information you need to mine to his pool on his help page: http://noobpool.com/#/help
  • darodidarodi Member Posts: 2
    Ohh thank you so much!
  • WeiWei Member Posts: 2
    So far so good with this pool. Have not experience timeout or server reliability issues that I am seeing with Nano pool. Going to switch over the remaining 5 GPUs and will probably go all in on this pool. It's too bad I can't send SIA and Pascal dual mining to this pool as well.
