“Windows and Linux devices are under attack by a new Crypto-mining worm”

Author: Dan Gooidin | Publication: Arstechnia.com

This article is about the signature tells of a new computer worm that takes control of unused processing resources to perform malicious activity. Several parallels to Stuntex seem available, one question I had while reading- ‘What if the next ‘pandemic’ isn’t biological, what if it’s digital?” There is a lot of discussion about ‘infrastructure’, however moving forward a national digital infrastructure bill will be needed to ensure that the digital economy does not suffer from processing freezes or outages due to the increasingly sophisticated nature of recent malware campaigns.
