Altcoin News | Bitcoin News | Blockchain | Crypto News | Latest News

Kaspersky Labs recently released a cyber security report that notates a significant decline in ransomware as compared to the growing increase of crypto jacking in a recent report published on June 27.

According to the Kaspersky Lab report, which compared data from April-March of 2017 with data from April-March of 2018, a 30% loss in the amount of ransomware was found as opposed to a 45% gain in the amount of crypto mining attacks. The total amount of internet users affected by these crypto mining attacks are up to around 2.7 million.
