New covert malware attempts to mine for bitcoin on your computer

There are reports of a new “invisible” malware, It’s called “Adylkuzz” and it seems to be designed to get karma points toward bitcoin mining. CNN has a story here.

It apparently offers the dubious”benefit” of blocking other malware (maybe even ransomware) while it runs.  Of course, ransomware usually demands payment it bitcoin.
