According to a joint statement by the law enforcement offices, the thieves had installed cryptocurrency mining malware on the computers through a mass email blast, which was ultimately received by 32,435 addresses. Believing the email to be coming from a legitimate employer, the individuals were duped into opening the attachments, which installed the malware. 6,000 computers had the malware removed autonomously three to seven days following infection due to the presence of advanced anti-virus software.

According to the local police, “Because cyber security firms and anti-virus software operators responded quickly to the distribution of mining malware, the group of hackers were not able to generate a significant revenue from their operation. In most cases, anti-virus software detected the malware within three to seven days. If the malware was detected, the hackers sent new malware, but it was detected again by anti-virus software.”.

Also, if the performance of a computer suddenly drops, users will have to suspect the presence of mining malware.” Bitcoin Cash (BCH) is today the only Bitcoin implementation that follows Satoshi Nakamoto’s original whitepaper for Peer to Peer Electronic Cash.
