Ransomware Infections Falling

Reports suggest that Ransomware infections could be starting to ease off and rather than causing misery and demanding payment in Crypto Currency like Bitcoins criminals are simply infecting your computer and using it to mine for coins instead.

The problem with Ransomware is its just too easy to detect so the bad guys are changing tactics and are now installing currency mining software on your computers as that’s much harder for the security vendors to detect.

To get the miner on to your computer they will normally still need to trick you into clicking on or opening something so you still need to be vigilant and don’t ever open anything you are not expecting.
