Cryptocurrency has been the new hot topic throughout the world. Especially after the unimaginable attention been given to the value and trade of bitcoin. But, where people are trying hard to be optimistic about the newly emerging system of finance, it has given the world of cybercrime a new purpose.
Recently, malicious YouTube ads have been reported which are digging for the bitcoin data in the user’s accounts without any notification to the site or the user himself.
The code causing all the chaos is apparently from a digital cryptocurrency called “Coinhive”.
Seems like internet users are again going to face another wave of ferocious cyber crimes. However, for now, the act has been identified by some antivirus companies which are now notifying the users.
