A security bulletin released by Kaspersky Labs states that botnets are increasingly being used to distribute illicit crypto mining software.
Cybercriminals earned more than $2.3 million from cryptocurrency scams during the second quarter of 2018, a new study reports.
In the cat-and-mouse game between hackers and users, less-lucrative crypto-mining malware fell out of favor this year.
More than 1.65 million computers were targeted by cryptocurrency mining malware attacks in the first eight months of 2017, according to a new report.
Security firm Kaspersky Lab says bitcoiners are a popular choice of victim in malware attacks aimed at personal finances.
