Security firm Symantec says it has found eight apps in Microsoft's app store that mine the cryptocurrency monero surreptitiously and has advised the company about this.
Security firm Palo Alto Networks claims to have found samples of malware spread by a group known as Rocke that uninstalls five different cloud security protection and monitoring products from Linux servers that have already been compromised due to their running certain applications with known vulnerabilities.
A script that mines for cryptocurrencies on Linux systems first needs to infect these systems, either by using brute force to guess SSH passwords or else by gaining entry through the use of stolen credentials that can be bought on dark web forums.
