The developers of Monero (XMR) have just disclosed that they have discovered and patched a critical bug that affects all CryptoNote-based cryptocurrencies, and allows for the creation of an unlimited number of coins in a way that is undetectable to an observer unless they know about the fatal flaw and can search for it. This major bug has been patched a while ago and it has been confirmed that the Monero network was never affected by it. All other active and affected CryptoNote coins, including CryptoNote themselves, Bytecoin, Forknote, Boolberry, DashCoin, and DigitalNote have apparently been notified about the possible issue prior to the public disclosure of the problem.

Note that, at this time, only Monero (XMR), Aeon (AEON), Boolberry (XBB), and Forknote have updated. This means that there could be potential abuse, though it may not necessarily happen with coins that have not patched and fixed the bug. As a result caution is advised for anyone using, trading, exchanging, or running services involving the following currencies affected by this issue: Bytecoin (BCN), DashCoin (DSH), DigitalNote (XDN). Just to clarify a possible misunderstanding by some users – DashCoin (DSH) is not the same as DASH as DASH is not CryptoNote, but X11-based!

Even though most people are either GPU mining or using specialized ASIC miners for most crypto coins, there are still some that are only CPU mineable or at least are worth CPU mining even if they do come with a GPU miner as well. Since we are getting questions what crypto coin to mine if you have some spare CPU power available, we have compiled a short list of coins that you might want to check out. Do note that with a single CPU you will most likely not earn much mining any CPU coin, but if you have multiple CPUs available along with free electricity the outcome might be better…

Crypto coins to check for CPU mining:
Boolberry (BBR)
Coin Magi (XMG)
Cryptonite (XCN)
DigitalNote (XDN)
Monero (XMR)

The list is alphabetically ordered are there are a few other CPU coins available as well besides the ones listed above, many of these based on the CryptoNight algorithm used by XMR and some others as well, so if you are interested you can dig a bit more into the alternatives. Alternatively you can look for new coin launches that only come with CPU mining, these can be profitable to mine initially as well.
