Yesterday a new tool made rounds, in our boards a well. The RTX LHR BIOS v2 was designed to adjust the BIOS of NVIDIA GeForce RTX 30 video cards and remove the limiters, permitting you to mine Ethereum at maximum speed. A device released on GitHub advertised the sought-after ability to unlock the whole Ethereum mining competencies of new Nvidia RTX graphics cards, but simply include malware. Tom’s hardware and pc Gamer wrote about the initially promising application, called “Nvidia RTX LHR v2 Unlocker,” which claimed to remove Nvidia’s “Lite Hash charge” software program that becomes implemented in more modern graphics cards to deter crypto miners from buying gaming GPUs.
In a YouTube Livestream yesterday on the red Panda Mining channel, participants of the mining network ChumpchangeXD and Y3TI shared much less welcome findings: the device contained multiple viruses.
Importantly according to Tom’s hardware, the tool doesn’t even carry out its namesake characteristic of removing the cap on the hash rate in your GPU. Rather, it damages your device and causes a host of other uncommon conduct, like high CPU utilization, checking for system drives, and other things that ought to — and did — enhance a few red flags. The booklet points readers to Joe’s SandBox Cloud, a cool site that illustrates exactly how the malicious file spreads through a machine upon setting up.
Since Nvidia applied Lite Hash price in graphics cards starting in mid-2021, there was a big call for a profitable secondary market for in advance RTX cards that don’t have hash price limits. A device that could reduce the demand by removing the restriction from more recent cards is an enticing proposition. Unfortunately, report this one below “if it sounds too true to be real, it probably is.
