Bitcoin Mining Blackhat
At the Black Hat 2014 conference in Las Vegas, Rob Ragan and Oscar Salazar, penetration testers from Bishop Fox, demonstrated a technique for cloud-based bitcoin mining that cost them exactly…nothing. At this moment, one bitcoin is worth $576.57. With a hefty exchange rate like that, bitcoin mining without the need to devote massive computing resources could be quite lucrative.

It's not precisely a legitimate activity, but then, the job of a penetration tester is to hack systems in order to patch them. Ragan noted that the experiment did "violate the hell out of some terms of service." To gain access to the necessary processing power, they had to generate a huge number of unique email addresses and sign up for tons of free trial accounts. Having done so, they managed to build a fully functional bitcoin-mining botnet. According to Ragan, "This botnet doesn't get flagged as malware, blocked by web filters, or get taken over. This is the stuff of nightmares!"

let"s test it out
