There was new malicious software which maynit cryptocurrencies on iPhone


Now mad rates the new type of the malicious applications focused on iPhones which maynit on these phones of cryptocurrency extends, it is told in the new report of Global rating of threats from Check Point. Researchers of Check Point found almost 400% increase in the attacks of the kriptomayningovy malicious software at iPhone. Explosion was observed for the last two weeks of September when the attacks to users of the Safari browser also considerably grew, - it is said in the statement of the organization.

The fact that browsers are mentioned in the report, causes suspicion that it not the specific phenomenon focused only on iPhone as it can be a script for a mining which strikes separate ON from Apple. These suspicions were confirmed when the notorious script of Coinhive is mentioned in the report later.

according to Check Point, its Index consistently considers Coinhive by the most bigger threat since December, 2017. The difference is that in the latter case the scenario is present at bigger quantity of the sites which are often visited by users of the iOS platform.

Among cryptocurrency malicious applications the Dorkbot worm takes the second place, conceding only Coinhive. XMRig was lately used in the smaller number of the attacks, having moved to the eighth place and having confirmed the idea that it is difficult to keep the cars infected with the malicious software with the corresponding loading long enough to reach considerable profit.

the Strategy of hackers, it seems, pushes them the victims to voluntary loading of malicious applications or visit of the websites which were taken by Coinhive which as it is represented, is the most popular option as it is easy to hide it in a website code.

the Exception of this rule is hearts and other types of the software which get on the computer of the victim by means of simple mechanisms and do the activity less obvious. Several examples - Dorkbot and Andromeda.

One more recent message from the company on cyber security, McAfee, shows that the malicious software for a mining of cryptocurrencies unprecedentedly continues to grow as the most popular type of the attacks.

In the report is also noted growth of the demographic aimed attacks. One of examples of it is the Russian game forum where the hacker published "fashion" which aimed to improve a game.

Instead of granting any new advantages to the gamer, it maynit coins for the hacker. It seems that the tendency to similar cases in the future will only amplify. As we wrote

recently, according to the research conducted by the Trend Micro company the activity of cryptocaptures considerably increased. In the report it was told that the number of attempts of cryptocaptures increased ten times since 2017.
