  • Cryptomining malware

    Cryptomining malware

    Cryptomining malware, also called cryptocurrency mining malware or simply cryptojacking, is a relatively new term that refers to software programs and malware components developed to take over a computer's resources and use them for cryptocurrency mining without a user's explicit permission. Unauthorized cryptomining is seeing exponential growth, since it actually doesn’t require significant technical skills and cyber criminals have increasingly turned to cryptomining malware as a way to harness the processing power of large numbers of computers, smartphones and other electronic devices to help them generate revenue from cryptocurrency mining. Ad blocking firm AdGuard, for instance, estimates that more than 500 million users are mining cryptocurrencies on their devices without realizing it. These users either get infected by a cryptomining malware program or visit websites that stealthily run cryptomining software in the background without the user's consent.
