Cryptominer by Maggie Appleton


Claymore’s Dual GPU Miner 10.5 and below is vulnerable to a format strings vulnerability. This allows an unauthenticated attacker to read memory addresses, or immediately terminate the mining process causing a denial of service.

After reading about the recent vulnerabilities with previous versions, I thought I should take another look at the json listener on port 3333 and see if there was any avenues of attack.

echo -e '{"id":1,"jsonrpc":"1.0","method":"test"}' | nc 3333 & printf "\n"
