Monero in the news
Monero was recently in the news again for various reasons. First of all, it's been recently reported that Finance Magnates revealed that there’s a worm that originates from somewhere in Paris and it’s called Retadup. This malware stole data from hospitals in Israel.
The cybercrime unit at the French police was able to uncover and neutralize a virus that has secretly infected more than 850,000 devices all over the world in order to mine XMR.
Unfortunately, it’s already a known fact that due to its powerful privacy and anonymity, it’s preferred target for malware used by miners.
This latest threat used the processor power of hundreds of thousands of Windows-operating computers in more than 100 countries in order to generate coins for the perpetrators, according to notes coming from the online publication mentioned above.
We recommend that you read more about this in the original article from Finance Magnates.
