We All Know What Ransomware is Now – What About Cryptojacking?
If you don’t know what this is, it’s important – cryptocurrency mining malware is what hackers use to steal (mine) cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin.
Why is this important? Because these unsuspecting thieves need lots of computing power to mine these digital dollars, and they’re using your computer to do it. At least two problems result – one, your computer is involved in stealing and you might be held accountable if you can’t prove it’s not you doing it. Second, it will take your computer’s performance from good to its knees in no time.
