Got a virus on my DR5 miners. It is very similar to the one that has been affecting L3+ miners. What do I mean by similar:
1. Changes a mining pool address after every reboot
2. Does not allow to flash a firmware via Antminer web interface (results in 404 error)
3. Infects all other Antminer miners on the network
4. Cannot be deleted this with the antivirus software
There is very little information available about DR5 miners online. I could not find a SD flash file for DR5 miners on Bitmain website. If anyone has it, I would appreciate you sharing it. Although I do not believe that the virus will allow a flash via SD card.
As I mentioned, this virus seems very similar to the virus that has been infecting L3+ miners. I have a few of those miners too. To get rid of from it in my L3+ miners, I literally had to short the control board for 30 seconds.
If anyone in this community has an idea how to short a DR5 control board without causing a permanent damage, please share this info. SD flash files would also be very helpful.
