Research: Crypto Mining Malware Still Abundant Despite Market Decline7.38

Researchers at Kaspersky Labs have released a report stating that 2018 has been the year of the crypto-miners.

Previous years were noted for ransomware or browser hijackers but this year has seen the biggest rise in mining malware designed to commandeer unsuspecting computers for their processing power.

High profile cases have involved compromised Facebook Messenger code and Chrome extensions, so even the big boys are not immune.
