A dangerous Russian malware named ‘WebCobra’ has been discovered by a research team from the computer security company, McAfee. The famous antivirus company claims it to be a lethal cryptojacking malware that steals the computing credentials and power of crypto investors to mine two crypto currencies – Monero and Zcash – secretly.

Experts believe that the recent rise in the theft of crypto mining is the cause the gradual spike in the prices of crypto currencies. The hiked prices have brought in a venomous wave of cybercriminals, who use malware and other viruses to hijack computers of unsuspecting crypto users to mine crypto.

Countries Affected: South Africa, USA, Brazil

“It’s a Russian malware, and it silently installs the Claymore’s Zcash miner or Cryptonight miner into the PC of the victim. The two mining software are alternated, depending on the configuration of victims’ machine,” says a source at McAfee.com/activate.

The source further revealed that, on x86 systems, ‘WebCobra’ injects the Cryptonight miner code into a running process and then launches a process monitor. On x64 systems, the malware first checks the configuration of the GPU and then downloads and launches Claymore’s Zcash miner from a remote server.
