Is this a dumb malware?

I just noticed a couple of miners not mining. Thought these had crashed, but noticed the wallet not being mine. Originally thought it might had been the miner changing the wallet for their fee. So I checked /hive-config/wallet.conf and found that all the miners had a different wallet than I had set.

However, should this be malware, it is really dumb. Since it just changed the wallet without consideration of the rest of the setup. Does anyone know whether this is something hive (doubt it, since I would consider the devs know better than to do something so dumb), or something else messing up my config. Could this be autoswitch changing the wallet for a dev fee?

Remove the profit switching software and see if it continues

good idea.

went a different route. Remember that autoswitch launches with a really long command, rather than using a script file

Checked it out and the 34TJQUdMYzyV5GNLVFRpRRdFAbgLmVwJ3v wallet is from them.

#w=$(echo $wald$walde | openssl enc -base64 -d)
#[[ $(cat /hive-config/wallet.conf | grep "-new.nicehash.com" | wc -l) > 0 ]] && w=$(echo $wald_new$walde_new | openssl enc -base64 -d)
w=$(echo $wald_new$walde_new | openssl enc -base64 -d)
echo $w

w=$(echo $wald$walde | openssl enc -base64 -d)
echo $w

The result for the old wallet is 3GuYKWxRaBCgBM7FaxjoR3Cqe2uWMZjQio and their new one is 34TJQUdMYzyV5GNLVFRpRRdFAbgLmVwJ3v

i suspect whatever youre doing with that is also the culprit of your other issues youve posted about

Could be. I am currently energy challenged and had to reduce my mining effort. So far it has behaved better. However, it is hard to know, since lack of evidence is not evidence of absence

Thanks
