Bitcoin mining can be extremely profitable…that is, for the hackers using your server!
Bitcoin has been labeled the “future of money” by many in the financial sector. It’s a global commodity, or store of value, that continues to grown in popularity as well as value. Unfortunately there are also hackers getting involved and this could mean trouble for your servers if you aren’t protected. There is a Trojan Virus currently infecting servers all over the world that draws the resources from your server(s) to mine crypto currencies such as bitcoin, monero, litecoin, and dash. This virus called “Trojan.BitcoinMiner.exe” was designed to draw your server memory and processing power, but not all of it, so as to not easily be detected.
The syptoms of this virus include:
- Slower processor response
- Errors with the svchost.exe
- Strange files being reated in your ../user/local/temp directories
- Multiply occurances of w3wp.exe processes running in task manager
In order to wipe this bitcoin Trojan from your server, which is not very difficult, you must do the following:
- Enter your server in Safe Mode with network support
- Download and run malwarebytes.org
Yes, Bitcoin is rapidly becoming an important piece in the global financial market to safeguard against economic collapse by a corrupt banking system.
