    One of the fastest growing cyber threats doesn’t involve an extortion demand via ransomware or access to your financial accounts by way of phishing scam. In fact, this new wave of criminal activity isn’t focused on taking your money, but instead, seeks to cash in on hijacking your computer’s power and bandwidth. In an extraordinarily short timeframe, malicious cryptomining has surfaced as the second-most popular form of cybercrime impacting both consumers and businesses alike. As reports from security experts and sources such as Business Insider tell us, this occurs even as the overall use of traditional malware is actually declining. Stay one step ahead of those who would disrupt your livelihood and steal your resources for their financial gain with an understanding of these basic facts about malicious cryptomining.
