North Korean mining bot
AlienVault, a cyber safety company, detected a malicious Monero mining bot. In the further research was also established where do the mined money goes to: surprisingly or not, — North Korea. However, even considering their recent interest in the technology, the company admits that the program hasn’t been necessarily created in the country. It’s thought that hackers from North Korea are favouring privacy-focused coins like Monero because they offer much greater anonymity than Bitcoin does.
