Cryptocurrency Mining

Browser-based crypto mining is once again rearing its ugly head, with Avast recently identifying several applications in Google Play with built-in crypto mining, according to Arne Uppheim, Avast's director of product management for SMB.

One of the biggest threats for companies related to crypto mining is employees using company electricity and resources to install equipment on the company network, Uppheim said, introducing serious security risks in the process.

Companies should deploy endpoint protection products that detect crypto mining and scan for and discover anomalies on their network to help thwart this risk, Uppheim said.
