Monero, mined by eight cryptojacking apps in Microsoft Store
Monero has been in the spotlight recently after getting mined by eight cryptojacking apps in the Microsoft Store.
A new report coming from Symantec revealed that eight cryptojacking apps had been removed from the Microsoft Store after they have been detected as being malicious back in January.
Symantec also said that the apps were targeting novice users to mine crypto.
“On January 17, we discovered several potentially unwanted applications (PUAs) on the Microsoft Store that surreptitiously use the victim’s CPU power to mine cryptocurrency. We reported these apps to Microsoft, and they subsequently removed them from their store,” they wrote.
A recent paper mentioned by Blockchain Reporter debates the actions of illegal crypto mining.
According to the report, Monero (XMR) seems to be the most affected digital asset with 4.3% of its total supply mined illegally.
