With the arrival of new technologies there is increasing number of speculators who are trying to turn the benefits of these technologies into their own favour. This is valid also for cryptocurrencies. Apart from the common hacker attacks on bitcoin wallets and crypto exchanges, ordinary website visitors are becoming victims of attacks too. They often don’t even realize that they are unwillingly participating on bitcoin, monero coin (or any other cryptocurrency) mining process for the benefit of someone else.
This is possible thanks to a malicious malware for crypto currency mining that is injected to the website by an attacker.
