Abstract

The increase in popularity of blockchain and cryptocurrencies in the last decade has led cyber attackers to develop various methods. Today, countless blockchain and cryptocurrency system applications and technologies target user accounts and information systems through cryptocurrency hacking malware. Especially with off-the-shelf mining scripts readily available from untraceable cryptocurrencies (e.g., Monero and Zcash), crypto-hacking malware has become an indispensable method for attackers. This study focuses on the mechanism and detection and analysis of crypto miner malicious software attacks. In addition, precautions that can be taken to protect against crypto miner malicious software attacks are presented.
