european airport infected monero systems mining malware

Mohammad.PooryaEuropean Airport Systems Infected With Monero-Mining Malware
Quote:More than 50% of all computing systems at a European international airport were recently found to be infected with a Monero cryptominer linked to the Anti-CoinMiner campaign Zscaler spotted during August 2018.

The cryptojacking attack was discovered by Cyberbit’s Endpoint Detection and Response team while deploying their security solution whose behavioral engine subsequently detected suspicious activity on some airport systems.

"The malware may have been used for months prior to the installation of Cyberbit EDR, although all workstations were equipped with an industry-standard antivirus," said Cyberbit.

Luckily, besides affecting the infected systems' overall performance and leading to increased power consumption, the XMRig Monero miner did not impact the airport's operations.
