In studying how bots and botnets work I'd thought I'd post something here for other people curious in the same topic. I work as a computer tech at my local community college and was given the green light by the director to infect 30 of the IT computers with an undetectable bitcoin miner. I convinced him that there is no way to actually make any profit from this method (because of the size and now complexity of bc hashes now) but wanted a challenge that doesn't really damage anything.
I have about 4 others that are curious in this topic and I'd thought posting on here would save us some time in figuring out which programs actually work and which skills we would need.
All the computers range from Win Server 2003 to Windows 7. Any advice or guidance is very appreciated!
