New Form of Crypto Malware Targets Wikipedia’s Donations Page6

In the past, Blockonomi has reported on the significance of malware in the cryptocurrency space, and unfortunately, the threat still exists. A new form of malware is now targeting cryptocurrency transactions, but the process is a little strange to say the least.

The software is artificial intelligence (AI) driven, and once downloaded to your computer, it will sit there until the hackers behind it are able to find your login and password information. However, action is not taken right away. Instead, the malware waits until the unknowing victim visits a Wikipedia page. At the top, they’re likely to see the advertisement that one often sees when meandering through the Wikipedia website that explains how one can make a small donation to keep the venture going.
