Are Cryptojackers picking your pocket?
You’ve probably heard of ransomware and phishing, but are you aware of another threat to your cyber security; cryptojacking? Cryptojacking is hackers stealing your resources to mine for cryptocurrency without obtaining permission.
The three tell-tale signs that your system has been affected by a cryptomining attack are slow network speeds, a spike in CPU consumption and a dramatic increase in your energy usage. This affects your business through unbudgeted operating expenses as you power your computers to work for someone else, opportunity costs as legitimate business is slowed down, and reputational and regulatory costs from reporting, investigating and explaining the cryptomining activity.
The best way to protect yourself against these attacks is ensuring you have the correct technology in place. Intercept X is equipped with a DARPA designed, deep learning form of AI that is able to identify malicious programs before they even run. It includes the industry’s most powerful malware cleaner, which provides forensic-level remediation by eradicating malicious codes and registry key changes.
