Cryptocurrency Hijacking

Cryptocurrency Hijackers mostly target individuals who have expressed an interest in cryptocurrency.

The attacker gets the target to unknowingly download malware which infects their computer and instructs the system to begin to mine (process the algorithms required) for cryptocurrency.

The impact on the affected computer’s performance is often low, but it can overtake the processing as well.
