Maybe I've read too much or just had a strange education, but I never realized until now "Doge" online meant 'doggy'...dog - e . I always thought it referred to the Venician/Genoan historical leader

Investigators found a process named "PWNED" which was the mining software on infected devices

Subtle.

That sucks. I was considering a Synology too.

Well at least the process was properly named.

As long as you don't expose it to the Internet, you shouldn't have this problem.

I'll admit I'm a Neanderthal at this sort of thing, not knowing the first thing about bitcoins, dogecoins or any other sort of internet money.  After reading this and getting a headache for my troubles, I can only say I'm glad for my ignorance.  The final sentence doesn't sound too comforting for all those who were hacked: "Affected consumers can now find discussion and instructions on how to patch the hijack and exploit on their device over at the Synology Forums."  It reads to my uneducated eyes as "all you suckers who got hacked can go over to an internet forum and find out how to stop the bleeding but, as far as recouping any money you lost -- it sucks to be you."

The victims didn't loose any cash directly, they lost it indirectly in the form of higher electricity bills.

That's what you get when your money is just a number and not backed by anything real.

I thought it was supposed to be pronounced DOG-eh. Strong emphasis on the first syllable, with the "o" somewhere between "oat" and "ought," a hard "g", and a barely pronounced "eh" at the end.

Of course, my brain prefers one syllable, with o as in "oat."

The fact that people don't even know how to pronounce this dumbass funny money is reason enough to never invest a single dime or CPU cycle on it.

Farking waste of electricity.  Goddamn millennials need to take some macroeconomic classes and learn what money is and why it works.

It sounds like a million gadget owners and a million fake-money owners may have, over time, been ripped off for about 25 cents each.

The Dogecoin weren't really stolen.  People had their computers hijacked and used to mine dogecoin.

Like, let's say you could get dogecoin for digging ditches.

What happened is then analogous to the perpetrator here stealing some backhoes from a construction site, used them to dig ditches somewhere else, getting paid for digging those ditches, then returning the stolen backhoes with the owners none the wiser that their equipment had been used.

From the people's perspective paying for the ditch digging, it was all on the up-and-up. Ditches were dug through the normal methods (though the guys business card didn't match the logo on the equipment).

But the owners of the equipment are the ones who lost out and now have backhoes with several hours of use on them that do not perform as good as brand-new backhoes.

Oh and their backhoes are now almost out of fuel.

Hehe ok that made me chuckle.

Now can someone explain why on earth I need bitcoins or dogecoins?  if I can leave an old computer on explicitly to mine these fine.  but is there an easy way?

And once again, why do we have these.

Much confused.

About a third of Americans don't understand how money works, and they think it would work a lot better if it were deflationary. (And if they didn't have to pay taxes on it)

Money is a consensual hallucination. It works because people want it to work.
