    It is a pity that some people might have been spending a lot on their computer without knowing that they are spending on mining.In the past cryptocurrency was know for illegal trading and other criminal act.But another set of scammers takes a different approach: loading up victims’ computers with software that “mines” currencies to generate a profit, without the owner’s knowledge.

    According to new statistics released on Tuesday by Kaspersky Lab, a prominent Russian information security firm, 2017 is on track to beat 2016—and every year since 2011—in terms of the sheer number of computers infected with malware that installs mining software. So far in 2017, the company says it has detected 1.65 million infected machines. The total amount of infected computers for all of the previous year was roughly 1.8 million. The infected machines are not just home computers, the firm stated in a blog post, but company servers as well.
