Too Long; Didn't Read

Cryptojacking attacks can make attackers millions in profits. Using cryptojacking, an attacker leverages other devices to mine cryptocurrency silently. The longer the malware runs on a target device, the more digital profits an attacker can make. Cryptojackers target enterprise servers for their high-end hardware, fast processing, and extensive memory. The loss of computing performance is immediate, so you can assume you can be a victim of cryptjacking malware if your computer suddenly runs slowly after installing a particular application on the local machine runs painfully slow.
